Anyone have suggestions for how to meet someone? (please read details!)

I would like to start taking steps toward the world of dating but I've got one problem--I live in such a tiny, tiny town.. there's no where to go except WalMart and the bar, and considering I don't drink I feel I'm left with no options. None of my friends know anyone they can hook me up with, I don't work, and I just don't know where to turn for some dates. any suggestions you can provide me with would be sincerely appreciated! thanks!

I would seriously not recommend doing a dating website as they can be VERY dangerous. Go out of town, expand yourself to new options and different things. You'll meet someone eventually :)

Can you find a job or even a volunteer position? That would help you meet people.

I think before going to dating you need to clear the things with whom your meeting and find out all the details about that person like his genuine or not.

I'm sorry but I don't understand how that answers my question? I'm looking for ways to meet people, not what to do after I meet them. Am I misunderstanding something here? :-/

You could meet people at church. And wait for the right person that God has for you. Jesus loves you. Gby

If you can't go out of town to visit friends/family for a while, then going to Wal-Mart or the bar (where you don't have to drink alcohol...just go to socialize) would be better than nothing because there just might be another guy out there feeling the same way you are right now...you never know. You could always try the online-dating stuff, but I believe there is a higher risk of your feelings getting mixed up when "speaking" with someone you are not able to see. If you can match up with someone online and then safely meet them, then maybe that would be different. Funny thing about finding love is that it usually finds you when you least expect it or when you are not trying so hard to get it. You are still young and you have plenty of time, so don't rush yourself...just have fun.

Thanks for the reply. I know I can go to a bar and not drink, but if I'm going to get serious with someone I'd prefer them not to be someone who frequents the bar scenes. I'm an addict in recovery--TWO YEARS SOBER ON 04/26--and therefore it's obvious why meeting someone at a bar is not a good idea for me. Thanks for trying though!

Oh, congrats on that...and also I totally get why you would not want to hang out at a bar. (I had no idea...otherwise, I would have said no to the bar.) But just going out anywhere and being out there at all can "accidentally" find you someone as well...you never know. I wish you well. :)
