After a bitter divorce & 4 years as a single parent, I was staying away from the bar scene ( any one I met there hightailed it anyway as soon as you mentioned you had kids at home) and living in a rural area, I had become confortable at being single.One day I ran across a Christian Singles Magazine that circulated the entire state and thought why not try this. I met a wonderful woman ( never married, no children ) who lived 200 miles away and we have been married 8 years. We started this lifestyle about 6 months ago and she as well as I are really enjoying it.
Now with the internet you have so many more options, just don't blind yourself by not looking at areas that are farther away. If you really love someone distance isn't an issue.
