I am not the typical 62 year old -I work, I enjoy life doing many things and love the big city life. I came from Chicago and my husband had been here 30 yrs from NY. I was divorced 25 yrs and he 10 yrs. So it can happen. Good luck.
You are correct! The lack of professional careers here makes it hard for men and women to meet quality people. That was my original point I think..you summed it up very well! Thank you for your positive post..

Yep, classic "Sex in the city" Syndrome. Maybe not the case here, but most of the time woman looking and so disappointed in all the worldly classy qualities men should posses but don't, lack those qualities themselves. They end up going to bars where any woman will get hit on 29 times, just to boost their low self-esteem and then come home and post on the internet for sympathy. And just maybe the guys who do have those qualities just aren't interested in you? No, that simply isn't possible is it?

Well you know, there are a lot of "quality" men who work hard as contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc. Perhaps you are only looking for the Mercedes and the fat bank account.

I agree with you! I'm hoping that "quality" isn't the word she meant to use because that certainly insinuates that any man who isn't a professional/white collar worker, isn't of good "quality". And if that is what she meant to say, then her snobbish attitude is probably the reason she isn't meeting any guys.

Again, I'm hoping that was just a poor choice of words on the OP's part and not her true opinion.

Well when I wear a collar it is usually blue and I am of exceptional quality, just ask my wife the HMW (High Maintenance Woman) for I am her Maintenance Man, I think there is a country sound in there somewhere.....

A buddy of mine recently moved back to Greenville from Charleston after having lived down there for most of his 20s. His comment about Charleston compared to Greenville was if you want to date live in Charleston, if you want to get married live in Greenville. He also pointed out that being a guy in Charleston was like some dating fantasy world simply because the gender ratio is so uneven from male to female. so for the women i can see it being difficult.

I hear the ratio a lot. What's the actual figure for single man/woman?

I didn't see the OP saying that quality meant white collar. I thought it was pretty obvious that she was looking for a gentleman who was well rounded, interesting, fun, respectful, dependable, and successful at whatever his job is.

In fact, I think if you read the thread she lists what she's looking for.

That's EXACTLY what I meant. I would certainly not judge a person by his/her profession. "Quality" meaning "well rounded, interesting, fun, respectful, dependable, and successful at whatever his (her) job is." is exactly what I meant...thank you for clearing that up OrangeCountyGirl.

I've dated "blue collar" professionals and my Dad was a contractor. I don't base a potential date on his/her profession, but more so on common interests and integrity of the person. Again, the Sex in the City tag is not applicable here...it's not about shiny Rolex's and Mercedes Benz's...it's about considerate, respectful gentlemen.

I've met alot of "skirt chasers" here but not alot of men who are looking for a relationship. It's a sad fact, but it is a recurring theme...not just from me. I work in a woman dominated field and hear the same thing day in and day out. My curiosity in posting this thread was not to start a "online diagnosis" of my dating woes in particular. The point of the thread was to get feedback from women who live here who may have experienced the same woes...and from men who can give some sort of reflection on their experiences.
