Best State to Find a Husband?

I was talking to one of my sweet relatives on the phone today and I was asked again if I was ever going to "come out of the closet" or find a husband ("...for god sake, it's about damn time!") - also, how long was I going to keep living in Los Angeles where men favor women in their twenties.

So, it got me to thinking. I'm from Tennessee originally, and unless I want a divorced Bubba, at my advanced, old, old, spinster age of 37, where the heck can I find that prerequisite for a normal, God fearing, good life known as a "husband." Hmmmm?

I've heard that I would have "ten men to every woman" in Alaska, but really, does one ride a bike there? The weather is very drastic! So, anyone else have any suggestions on where I can move, even temporarily, so that I can snag that "Mr. Right" or whatever he wants to call himself. I have nice breath and, if intoxicated, am pretty amenable to most suggestions. I also have all my teeth. I do not want to bear babies, but I am not against kids as long as they can be locked in the pantry when I need alone time. I think I'm a major catch.

Suggestions anyone? And don't tell me to come out of the closet. I've considered that and find the closet more to my liking.

Hmmm, I think it's closer to 100 guys to every woman in Alaska. Your chances are best there I'd think . Philadelphia was just voted as having the ugliest people....

I think there is a problem that you feel you aren't complete without a man. Who cares what the family says? I think there were "rumors" about me like that with my family too. I'm also 37, single and don't want kids and love to ride bikes.

Hey wait.....ever been to Washington?

Are you looking for a keeper or someone old who is about to croak?

Still virile without needing a little blue pill? - keeper
Needs the little blue pill and is majorly loaded? - about to croak

But I'm not superficial or anything.

I've had lots of proposals while inebriated but none of them were for marriage.

Once you get to inebriated, take a hard left at "omg wtf?". You're almost there....

I do hope all you FOO boys know this thread is completely tongue and cheek. The relative did say that (only not so bluntly), but she loves me. I'm from the south and marriage is what southerners do.

But I like being single and able to hop on and ride any...um...bike of my choosing.

Single seems like the best state. Utah if you do not care about that.

Okay, you got a good sense of humor and are wearing on me. We can overlook the snaggle tooth thing.
