Well tomorrow is the Single Adult pot luck. I was going to make barbacoa (I still might), but right now I am waiting for the butter to thaw out for chocolate chip cookies. If I get the stuff for barbocoa the cookies are staying home! I am glad I am single I don't think I would of ended up to happy with any of the girls from my past life style. I hope to change that before I get too old though!
wooooooooo! cookies sound amazing! always good at any potluck for sure!
Nothing wrong with being single, you are more likely to find someone special if you are single and it doesnt bother you relaxed atmosphere etc.

I'm siingle now because i finally found the courage to divorce my abusive ex. I have tried dating but can'r seem to find anyone that i'm compatible with. Most men in their 50's are set in their ways and think they know more than everyone else. I think i will enjoy my life more , just being single.

I'm single now (and fairly recently) because I finally came up with the money to divorce my cheating ex. I'm just starting trying to date again after getting myself of a self-destructive phase of my life. I have a testimony, I'm not abusive or a pedophile . I do take showers and am less lazy than the average person I know. I just got a job as well as my driver's license and my first car (which being able to drive is huge as well as difficult for me because of a disability). I live in a rural area with only one other single member in my branch, who happens to be male like myself.

The first big hurdle I kept running into was the whole "I'll only date a returned missionary!" mentality. My maternal grandmother had just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and so I stayed back home to help my mom take care of her. Rather than ask why I didn't go, however, a lot of people - including some of the local priesthood brethren - simply turned their backs on me.
I did eventually find someone around 2005, but I did something stupid and caused a rift in the relationship that never healed.
I spent the next two years trying again, but this came to a halt when I was laid off in the fall of 2007. Given that I was in college at the time, this was a severe blow to my finances. Whatever money I made from temp jobs and day labor wound up going for tuition; I simply couldn't afford the local dating scene.
I eventually found a job at the end of 2008, but by then my finances were so devastated that I still couldn't afford anything. I finally got my finances back in shape around 2012, just in time for a massive mistake on the part of the grad school I was attending; because of this mistake, I spent an entire calendar year without any sort of financial aid. This broke my finances back into pieces, meaning that I couldn't afford to go anywhere; $20 was a big splurge back then.
Well, I made it through graduate school, and I finally started getting my finances back in shape... only for the federal insurance mandate to hit. Even though I'm only carrying a "bronze" plan, my premiums are still the size of a car payment. Between this and all of my other bills, my entire "entertainment" budget each month is a mere $50; that's dinner for two at any place nice.
