    I tried, it, too.  Met a guy and ended up chatting for about two weeks.   He wanted to meet.  So, we met at a restaurant.  Turned out he didn't think I was religious enough for him and he ended the date within an hour and a half.  Total loser.  He didn't know me long enough TO know that I am religious enough for him.  And, really, if he can't figure out that there is more to me than my religous thinking, he's one sad individual. 

    I've decided to stay away from dating sites.  I'm not one to chat with total strangers and then pick a few to meet on a blind date.   To find out if they don't work out.  Who wants all that hassle.  I'm going to meet more guys as I stay busy.  As long as I get out of the house and get involved in life I will meet someone.   Besides, dating sites all charge you a fee.  Who wants to pay to meet someone?

    Haven't tried it, but would guess the guys will be 1 of 2 ways.  Either way to religious - like using their religion to be controlling or total losers pretending to be religious to get nice girls.

     Just out of curiousity. What do you do or where do you go to meet guys? I also have done the online thing and am tired of it. I dont like the whole talk to a guy for a few weeks and then basically go on a blind date either. I dont get out a whole lot and only have a very small group of close friends so I dont know what other options I have.

     I've been looking up local groups that meet (Meetup.com).  I've found a handful of groups that are in my area that I have interest in (running, political, wine tasting, and social clubs).   I haven't gone to any of the events because they are too far away from where I live.  I live just outside a big city and all of these groups are happening in the city.  I live in suburbia many miles away from where these groups meet.  They also meet during the week at night and I find it hard to travel for miles to meet up with total strangers then drive home.  I have to get up in the morning to go to work.   I'm hoping that they meet during the day and on the weekends, but so far they don't.  I have joined a local running group, but they only meet up for 5k's and there is no socializing afterward.  One of them is starting to run together at a local park.  I plan on joining that group when it starts.  It lasts for a few months.  So, that should help motivate me to run more and perhaps I can make a few friends.  There was talk of starting a singles running group, but no one is interested in getting things going.  I have a few friends, too.  One is single and the others are either married or work third shift.  I hang out sometimes with my one single friend (when she's not working) and visit with my married friend or have dinner with her.  My college-age DD is single and has few friends, so we hook up whenever she has free time.  I have joined a local political party (not thru Meetup.com).  They only meet up on rare occasions.  I have also looked into a local church with hundreds of members.  I spoke to a volunteer there and she said that they were going to start a divorce/singles group this year.  So, this weekend will be my second visit to the church.  They have a night service.  I'm bound to meet singles there and perhaps some nice guys.  Other than that I'm stumped as to what else I can do.  I also plan on going to the golfing range a lot this spring.  I've also joined a gym to get tone and in better shape.  My single friend told me the better I looked the better chance I had at gaining more attention.  I know that might sound vain, but it does make a difference in a guy's attitude towards starting a conversation or ignoring you.   KWIM?    Hope I gave you some good suggestions.

     Thanks, I will have to look into some local groups in my area and see whats out there. I just dont have alot of free time unless its a weekend since I work full-time through the week and have two young children at home but who knows maybe I can find something thats on the weekends. Thanks for the suggestions.
