I want to move back to Springfield. It is all I have thought about since I was sort of "booted out" by circumstances I will not mention. I have been living in FL where I came for what was to be a short visit to my mother and have been here for six years due to a family situation. I no longer have family in Springfield only a hand full of "friends" that keep intouch on and off. I am hesitant to move back to a place with lots of good memories with someone I am no longer with but I really like the area. I lived ther for 16yrs and I am familiar with the area and could get a good job there at the hospital, ove the outdoor, lake, etc. but, being a female, I hesitate to live where I have no immediate family. My family mostly lives in GA (1 sister, mother moving there soon) They want me to move there too (Newnan GA) outside of Atlanta. I am not getting any youner and I am single in my early 40's (not exactly a "Springfield poster woman" & not by my choice) but I like the family atmosphere of Sgf and would like to restart my life there and who know's it's never too late to start a family or get accepted into one. Did you find it easy to meet people? I just assumed you weren't married. Maybe easier for a man to live in place by himself? I just know I miss it there. I have been back to visit Sgf for a week at least each year I have been gone. I still like being back when I visit and realize my life there would be different living there now then It was when I married living there. I just don't If I would fit in anymore. An unmarried woman no kids, no immediate family. Just wanted an opion from someone who might be in a similar situation as me. Thanks to you.

Well it depends on what youre looking for- single women are really ok in most places. If you want men look at demographics- many places have more men then women while some are the opposite. Rockport Tx where I live has more men in their 40s because they come for the ocean and own boats etc

On the other hand there are so many cool old bldgs in St Joe Missouri - are you handy? can you fix things up?

Default Perspective

Maybe I will get a better response with a new Title. I don't want to give the wrong impression with starting things out with "Single in Sgf" So, lets try this:
