I am in my early 30s, moved to Ottawa about 8 years ago from the West Coast so all my friends are pretty much people that I met from work. I'm leaning towards the conclusion that they're taken is correct. My experience hasn't amounted to anything more than just a few dates and a feeling of "hey you seem pretty interesting, I'd like to get to know you more" though.
Clean yourself up a bit.

For quite a few months, I worked everyday exclusively from coffee shops because I thought maybe I'd just "bump into her", but everyone is doing their own thing, and I feel like I'd just leave a creepy first impression if I were to walk up and start a conversation with someone who's just minding their own business. Realistically, you would have met at some point. I tried online, and could not really click with anyone and also had problems with people misrepsresting themselves in appearance and in confidence, being mislead on either note is a sign of dishonesty to me. I cannot tell you the number of times I really bonded with someone only that they are married. I admit that the prince charming comment is naive.
