I'm a single white guy in his 40's that wants to have a family (so I figure 30-something women are what to focus on), and I was pretty sold on the idea of relocating to the Huntsville area, until I saw the "population pyramid":

http://worldpopulationreview.com/us-...le-population/

It looks to be a nearly perfect storm of bad demographics for me. There's a "bulge" of 20-somethings (I presume they're college students) that are too young for me. Then the 30-something women fall off a cliff, while the 30-something men also drop, but not nearly as much. So I'd be over-40 and competing with a surplus of 30-something guys for a shortage of 30-something women.

Are there nearby areas with better demographics where good wife/mother prospects are to be found for someone in my situation?

If not, what are the best ways of meeting 30-something women in the Huntsville area?

Churches. Especially if they have singles classes.

You should try for 50-something women. That age group population peak also.

Hey donít knock it until you try it.

Having kids? You can forget women in their 30ís. The fertility rate drops exponentially after early 30ís it will be like buying lottery tickets and hope you win something.

Nonsense. My ex had her three kids after the age of 30, and in her early 40's the doctors said she could have more. And even if there were a problem, the fertility treatments in this century are far better than when I was growing up. The problem isn't so much fertility, it's good luck finding a woman over the age of 40 that still wants more kids. And good luck finding a woman under-30 that wants a guy my age -- hence, 30-somethings are the sweet spot.

You better go after the 30-35 yrs old then because after 35 a womanís chance of getting pregnant drops down to 15 - 20%.

Yup, churches. All of the 30 year old women I know here in town who are single (usually divorced with kids) are active in their churches.

Take up a hobby, like running or going to the gym. Plenty of women in their 30s that do that sort of thing, too.

I second that. One of my good friends had her last 3 children in her 40s with problem free pregnancies.
