I'm throught with California. I'm thinking of moving somewhere in the Midwest or South. Lot's of people keep talking about Tennessee. My questions are:

1.) I'm going to be an over the road truck driver. There's a lot of talk about Knoxville. What are some names of small towns / rural areas for a black man who used to be a "professional" to move to. I'd love to find a place OUTSIDE of a small town ... that is perhaps within 45 minutes drive to either a college / university or mid-to-large city. Any comments?

2.) This radical, mid-life change means that almost everything is over with. Including my last relationship. The women here are ... naturally urban. If they are open to moving South, it's to a city ... or worst, they'll come along ... but they want to get up late ... and are "afraid of 'bugs' ". 'Yall got any good church going, slender, NICE, country women down there who open to meeting a hard working middle-age man... and who like the idea of BUILDING something together? (LOL)

A vegan writer that now drives truck; that's interesting!

There are lots of towns in Tennessee that fit your description. I would check out getting a job transfer and then work from there, or just look for a new job, if you are so inclined. It seems like there are always jobs for truck drivers.

There are lots of ladies like what you described in Tennessee, also. I imagine that a lot are taken, but not all of them. You mentioned going to church. You will love Tennessee, then. This is the Bible belt, and there are plenty of opportunities to meet people that way!

I'll throw out Springfield as a possible. It's a small town, but not real small, but they are rural areas in the county and it seems to have most of the things you're looking for.

A middle-aged guy, who has a steady job, doesn't aduse drugs or alcohol (I assume you don't being a OTR driver), and goes to church . . . will probably be able to find any number of interested women.

ha ha! I know what you mean about people being " urban" in CA. I live here now ( from TN originally) and I've never adjusted to the city attitude here. Yes indeed- women and people in general are more laid back here. But as far as drama? Be prepared in some instances for neighbors that will be very curious and hence know all about you probably before you know about them. I don't think you'll have a problem with church-going women either. My mom always told me that the best place to meet women was at church. I didn't meet my wife at one, but the general feeling of people from where I grew up was that it wasn't a bad idea.
