The No-Dating To Do List

Things to Do (When You Aren't Dating and Won't For a Long Time Due to Living in the Middle of Nowhere)

1. Watch the Food Network
2. Vacuum dust bunnies out of the corners of your house
3. Watch HGTV
4. Read a magazine
5. Pick out your outfits for the week
6. Call your friends and realize you have nothing to talk about except work
7. Polish your silver jewelry
8. Look up cute dogs on Petfinder
9. Rearrange bookshelves by color of the books

Something needs to change, and soon. I'm wasting the few short years when everything is tight and perky living in between a tobacco field and a peanut processing plant. The guys around here decorate their homes with stuffed animals (as in taxidermy, not teddy bears) and think a bright orange hunting hat is a style statement.

Aaaaand I'm going to die alone. I'm getting desperate enough that I would totally go on a date with one of those weirdos that used to message me when I was trying online dating.

Sigh. What do I do?

Any chance of moving to a bigger town? Small towns seem to be filled more with families than single people.

You are so beautiful and smart and witty, there are thousands of men who would love to date you. It's just a matter of finding them!

If you can't move to bigger town, I would say leave your options open. Don't rule guys out because they live far away, are divorced, have husband had all three and we've been happily married now for 11 years. You just never know.

By the way, I didn't meet my husband until I was 31. I think I remember that you are in your 20's still, right? You have time - enjoy life, get out into the world as much as you can with your girlfriends and you will meet the right guy.

xo, Adrienne

Let me just tell you- my list is scarily similar to yours (except replace food network with TLC), and I feel those same feelings of wasting years and desperation but get this: I live in MIAMI.

It's no easier in a big city. I promise. I would even argue that it's even worse because you feel like everyone is out doing something except you! Yes, there might be more people, but it's so hard to them? Like where do you even begin?

anyway, single/lonely girls unite! :)

Keep an open mind. You may not meet Mr. Right, but you can meet Mr. Right now who can give you something to do.

I had tons of those. And I didn't meet my husband until I was 31, too.
