Where is the best place to meet educated women in their mid-20s? I've lived in Seminole County for a few months now and even though I'll go out from time-to-time, I'm kind of over that stage of my life. Besides, I never really found a meaningful relationship drunk at a bar in the middle of the night.

Is online dating solid in the area or a waste of time? The two most important things to me are education and physical health (enjoys sports, working out, fitness, etc.). Don't think that is too much to ask.

Anyway, just looking for any tips or places to check out that might help me find my first Florida girlfriend. Hopefully this doesn't make me sound too pathetic haha, but it's hard meeting new people in a new city for people who aren't super-talkative.

Join a Meetup group for people who like hiking or running or take an adult education class at the public library or similar in something that interests you.

Professional networking, social groups and charity activities are the best options. You are correct, you will not find the right one at the bar, she may very well be there, but she probably not going to take too seriously the guy she meets there. Meet that same girl in the settings I mentioned and your chances go up exponentially. Since you're into physical fitness definitly look into Orlando Sports Social or even the leagues available at your local gyms such as LA Fitness.

First solution to your problem, get out of Seminole County.

% of population with Bachelors Degrees (residents age 25 or higher) -
Seminole County - 33.6%
Orange County - 30.3%

per capita income
Seminole County - $29,795
Orange County - $25,490

Staying in Seminole County seems the obvious choice...

I agree with the other posts that activities such as Meetup and recreational leagues (softball, etc) are the best bets.

The Statmaster shows up.

Sure he can stay in Seminole County, but Orange County has almost a million more people than Seminole County. Chances are he'd have a better CHANCE finding someone.


To The OP
IF you to limit your chances to Seminole, good luck. I'd even look into Brevard, Volusia. There are more people there.

IF you have a special criteria which you are unwilling to work with, then yeah, these other posters information will help further.

Yes, stats are so inconvenient aren't they? In terms of a better chance with more numbers, not so much. It also means there are more guys looking, which kind of evens things out....

Well you live there, I don't so you would know more first hand what it's like. Thought I always perceived is that it was more of the family county. Families making up a greater percentage of the pop. Families having man/wife there, not too many singles.

Brevard county might be a good choice. Lots of people with jobs there related to NASA, aerospace and defense.

Yet again, numbers. (2010 US Census numbers)

In Seminole County, there were 139,572 households out of which 33.9% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 54.3% were married couples living together, 11.5% had a female householder with no husband present, and 30.3% were non-families. 22.9% of all households were made up of individuals. Population was distributed with 25.4% under the age of 18, 8.4% from 18 to 24, 32.0% from 25 to 44, 23.6% from 45 to 64, and 10.6% who were 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.59 and the average family size was 3.07. The median age was 36 years. For every 100 females there were 95.90 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 92.90 males.

In Orange County, there were 336,286 households out of which 32.40% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 47.00% were married couples living together, 13.70% had a female householder with no husband present, and 34.50% were non-families. 24.20% of all households were made up of individuals and 6.50% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.61 and the average family size was 3.14. In the county the population was spread out with 25.30% under the age of 18, 10.90% from 18 to 24, 33.80% from 25 to 44, 20.00% from 45 to 64, and 10.00% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 33 years. For every 100 females there were 98.00 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 95.70 males.

Both counties are about dead even in terms of number of families and number of singles in proportion to population.
