Dating at the dojo
Before I even ask my question here, I want to make it clear that I don't view the dojo as a pickup spot. I'm not there for dating, I'm there for exercise and training.
With that said, I've known people who have met, dated, and have married because of their shared interest in Aikido. I'm in my late 30's and recently become single after a long relationship. Frankly, this Tinder world sucks. I'm not trying to pick anyone up, but my friends say, go do things and meet people with similar interests doing those things. Well, I'm at the dojo or gym a lot of the time when I'm not working. I would love to meet someone who has a shared interest in Aikido, knows what we go through, wants to work to help each other get better.
I'm just curious what others have experienced with this?
