Don't discount the online dating sites. It's all the rage these days. After a 17 year relationship went bad, and a five year hiatus, I got back into dating at the age of 45. Yes, you have to be careful, but there ARE lots of nice ladies looking for long term relationships on these sites. I finally found "the one" after a few years. We have been married for 7 years. Good luck!!

Which site(s) did you use? I tried online dating for about 10 years with consistently little results.

I used mostly Match.com (pay) and Plenty-of-Fish (free). Met my wife on POF.

Are you dead-set on passing along your own genes? Because if you aren't, there are plenty of thirty-something year old women who are single, divorced, or widowed, and trying to raise kids on their own. I'm sure many of them would appreciate a good man.

Now, you've obviously got to be careful not to end up as somebody's meal ticket, you don't want to be sucked in by someone looking for a free ride or a gold digger - plenty of MGTOW videos out there full of warnings about women who got kicked to the curb by a "Bad Boy" and are now willing to settle for a "Nice Guy", LOL. But there are plenty of good single Moms out there, you've just got to find the right one with the right kid(s). I have a friend who married a single Mom, and not only did her daughter and my friend become as close as a biological father/daughter, they had two additional kids besides, and have been married for probably thirty years now. That's what happens when two nice people find each other.

Yes, I want kids of my own, very much. I'm perfectly fine with her already having kids though -- there are both pros and cons that mostly balance out.

Huntsville doesn't have a large pool of single upper 20s or 30s people period much less women. But for the pool that exists you're pretty much limited to church, dating sites and interest groups.

Are there areas within an hour's drive or so that would have more favorable demographics?

I'm frustrated by the limited features of city-data's interactive map -- I'd like to find a website with an interactive map that can show me the population density of white 30-something never-married/divorced/widowed women. All that information is in the census data that websites like city-data are using, but you have to have a more powerful mapping engine that will combine the data however you want.

Surely there are over 30 women in Huntsville that are single. Meeting 30 women takes time especially if you want to get top know them. Perhaps dating one woman per weekend that way in a year you could meet quite a few. I've been married to the same woman for 18 years and don't miss the dating scene.

You misunderstood me -- I meant meeting women that were 30-39 years in age, not meeting a 30+ number of women.
