not having much luck with this one , the local bar scene is terrible for dating , actually easy to meet people as there isn't that many people to meet at the bars and a lot of regulars week to week here but its almost impossible to date any of them and guys here are very desperate due to lack of available females as they all seem to be away at college or moved away / already married .
the online options are pretty limited and not really that many singles online here and it doesn't seem to be how people date here either most date people they know already from real life.
I also don't go to church so that isn't really an option either . and my job is in manufacturing so I don't really meet any girls at work , feel I'm running out of options , anyone else have to deal with this as well or have some suggestions ? there must be some way to change my luck and actually get some dates but really not sure how to go about it

Yes, I had this problem for years. I was born and raised in a small town that's half an hour away from *anything*. All my exes pretty much know each other... even when I dated it's like in that type of environment where everyone knows everyone it's hard to get out of that 'friend group' or date within that group cause everyone is so close with each other.
Everywhere I went I would see 5 people I knew (whether I want to see them or not... annoying most of the time) and the bar scene was pretty much just holes in the wall with regulars.
When I went out of town's to the big cities then it's mostly people I either don't fit in with, they are on vacation too from somewhere far away, or just never 'clicked' with anyone. I kind of just lucked out a few years ago and met my current SO at a 'friend of a friends' birthday party just outside of town and met him randomly while he was visiting (thank goodness he was like an unknown to our 'group' so I didn't have any preconceived notions about it haha)
We eventually moved out together to a larger city and now live happily, but I never thought I'd luck out like that.
It's really tough in a small town environment, I would suggest just getting out as much as you can. You never know when someone you click with might visit and steal you away ;)0
