Half of these "players" are probably unemployed, fat guys who have never touched a woman. The other half are bitter about their own failed/miserable relationships and are happy to feed you bad advice.
- I met my wife at work. We even shared the same office and worked together for a few years. We have been married 6 years and are very happy.
- It does not matter WHERE you meet someone, only WHO they are.
Solid advice. My girlfriend and I are in our ninth year of living together (we're in the not married since there are no kids but we might as well be married category) after dating for two years before that.
** She was my boss when we met and started dating. **
As you say, it was WHO we are and not the where or what that brought us together - we both knew that we were sincerely looking for someone long-term and not just a casual good time. That made it possible for the relationship to work.
