I'm kind of curious on how people on here approach dating, or how you met your current partner if you have one. A lot of my friends actively try and find a girlfriend/boyfriend/partner - eg many of them use dating apps and dating websites all the time, and a few of them have had a pretty successful experience. But I also know people who in college just get to know the people around them without much deliberate intent of finding someone to date, and everyone in between. When it comes to dating (I suppose especially if you're not straight or not cis), would it be better to actively put yourself out there and try to find someone to date, or simply live your life and wait and see what happens or if you befriend someone you might develop mutual feelings for? What have all your experiences been like and any thoughts?
