I've been divorced 8 years and think it's high time to get the ball rolling on finding a serious relationship.  I'm not a fan of the internet match.com, etc.  How do I find a decent man to date?  I really don't get out much other than with my kids.

That's why I asked the question....I need to know where are good places to meet men.  Should I go to church just for the purpose of trying to find a boyfriend?  Do I ask my friends to spread word?  Surely someone has some ideas!?!?  I can come up with some on my own but I thought I would ask and see what ideas others had too.

well I think your idea is perfect ...you want to look for someone somewhere you would like to go or have something in common with like if you bowl go to a bowling alley ...If you are looking for someone spiritual go to church...and definately spread the word tell your friends if they see any good matches for you then put your name out there...

I met my fiancee 6 yrs ago on Single.net and were still happy as ever. Dating sites are not all that bad you just have to be very careful and only choose ones that show pictures of themselves and really get to know the person well online and always meet in a public area first.

Sorry in this day and age I would say online. But I think you have good ideas and good advice. I think the best thing is to have your friends "spred the word"

Oh, Ok, I guess I must be afraid.  I'm not really old fashioned and have nothing against online dating sights, I guess I just am not real educated about them.....
