If you lived in SC, I would introduce you to my son. lol
Seriously though, online dating is fine. Does not make you a loser. (I too hate that word being used in this context.) Anyway, as long as you are careful, don't worry about doing the online thing. But also go out with friends. Put yourself in situations where you might meet other people. Join a club. If you like getting out and walking, then join a hiking club. I bet single guys going for a hike with a newbie single girl would gladly take you under their wing and make friends. Anyway, you get the idea.
Someone will come along. And if all else fails, move to South Carolina and I'll set you up with my son. lol
