Its not a matter of where really. Just take your time to get to know what people are really like. If you're in a hurry that'll work against you big time. People usually show their true character in 6 to 8 months or so. You dont have to be dating someone exclusively during that time.

Keep in mind that most "dates" dont go past the first one.

I'm not sure that any quality men exist in OC who want real relationships... honestly. I have been here for 2 years and all I find are guys who want casual non-committed relationships (mostly revolving around sex and not much more), and also guys who don't want to treat a girl well. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the less desirable guys (no personality, not very attractive, broke, no career/ambition to speak of)... lots of those guys are dying to have a relationship with you.

From my experiences here over the last 2 years (dating in the 28 to 45 year old category), it seems like OC and LA are full of men looking for flings and sex hookups more than anything else. And when you do find a guy who's willing to take you out on a real date, you better be prepared to have sex with the guy on the first or second date, because that's how it works out here. I've had several guys get VERY frustrated that we're on a 2nd or 3rd date, and we're not sleeping together yet. Basically, if they're an attractive guy, they'll just move on to the next girl. One of my guy friends, who's not all that desirable by most women's standards, said he's never had to wait more than 2 dates to sleep with a woman out here. For some reason it seems the girls here are more than happy to sleep around. Makes it really tough for someone like me who likes to actually get to know the person first.

I have many attractive friends who have been single the entire 2 years I've lived here. And I have a number of guy friends who are dating girls that are WAY out of their league. I assume because most of the guys that are actually in their league are just looking for something casual with no commitment.

Basically, if you're a woman looking for sex, you'll never go a night without it here. I get offers practically every night. No joke. If you're a woman looking for a healthy committed relationship with a decent man, chances are you're probably going to be waiting a long time.

Perhaps you will meet a good man at the American Legion, VFW, or DAV.

I would suggest going to Church, getting involved in community projects or other activities you enjoy. Be at places where you will have a chance to meet someone with the same values and interest. Just be yourself.
