Other than dating sites...been there, done that, hated it...how can I meet someone nice? I've been alone for almost 5 years now, and am finding it a bit depressing and quite lonely. I'm in good shape and have been told I'm attractive. People say you can meet someone through church or shopping at the supermarket. Well, that hasn't worked for me all these years. I really don't have any friends to speak of anymore...once I became separated, things changed a lot. I have no family here in Pennsylvania either...they all live in NY. If I had the extra money, which I don't, I would join E.Harmony...so this is not an option either. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.

Yup I will add to the "quit looking for it" suggestion. I met my husband when I was just casually dating. I was either looking for something serious, or just someone to hang out with for a date... none of that pull ya along drama in the middle. If I didn't like someone: Next please. It wasn't like I had em lined up at the door (although surprisingly when I adopted that attitude they were much more plentiful!) I just did my thing... I went out for cocktails with the girls after work, went to parties etc. My husband and I got married after knowing each other 6 weeks. Been married almost 5 years now. Ohhh yeah and Eharmoney sucks :) Never showed me him and I wouldn't have wanted anything else. Just go have fun :) Find a poker club or something like that? Find something you love, a good hobby, and throw yourself in it... Golf is a good one for being alone AND meeting people...

Ohh Kim ! So true :) I still have my list. I made it before I started dating with a purpose. Either wanted to be married, or having fun. And my list had EVERYTHING I wanted in a man... literally written down on notebook paper. I still have it down stairs in our paperwork somewhere :)
