Dear Aunty Pam,


So I just moved to a small town in S.C.(not going to say where in case I’m recognized) and I need help!

I’m an attractive, middle-aged single woman who owns her own home. I’m divorced, and I’m told I’m a lot of fun to hang around with. The problem? I’m lonely! I haven’t met any single men. They’re all married and the two that I have met that weren’t were not at all my type.


Help me, Aunty Pam! You live in a small town. Where do I go to meet single men??





Dear Desperate,


Alaska, where there are nine men to every woman, so the odds are good. However, the goods are odd. A ‘Leatherman’ on every belt loop—and that’s just the women.


You may have to cast your line a little farther. Think Pauline, or, more exotically, Cross Anchor. Wear a camo vest and hang around the feed stores in the deer corn section during hunting season. If that doesn’t nab you a couple of phone numbers, nothing will.


Cheers, dear!

Aunty Pam
