I am a 27 year old divorced LDS woman. I have been divorced for 3 years and I have just graduated from nursing school. I tried attending YSA activities but I felt very out of place due to the fact that most of the people are between 18-21 and are in a totally different place in their life than I am. I was introduced to the midsingles community (where there are also a lot of single parents) only to be informed that in my area midsingles are 31+. I feel like I am going to be alone forever at this point because I don’t know how to meet anyone new. I attend a family ward in my small community and am starting to feel really alone ( I do have a very close, supportive family but I am feeling a sense of isolation). I find that most of the people who want to ask me on dates, or spend time with me, are not LDS and have very different lifestyle choices than my own. How do I try and connect with other single LDS people? I am at a loss.
I would like to commend you for your efforts to graduate from college as you earn your nursing degree.
As human beings we desire companionship, and this desire is creating some turmoil in your life in connection with your divorce, and limited options which appear to be available to you.
How do you connect with other single LDS people? Great question. I hope my answer brings comfort to your troubled heart. My first recommendation, exercise faith through prayer being open and honest with the desires of your heart to Heavenly Father. Do you believe he knows a young man, middle-aged man, that would bring you happiness?
My next recommendation, are you open (once you have received your degree) to moving to a place where there are more members of the Church?
Have you asked friends and family if they know of any man who they think would be interested in a blind date?
Are you open to marrying a younger man, or a man who is possibly 5+ years older than you?
I wish you the best in your pursuit of happiness.
