My married friends keep telling me to "put myself out there more" to find a boyfriend. What does this mean?

I'm a 31 year old, single professional. I live in a remote community with only 20000 people. I love the lifestyle here and I couldn't get the same job elsewhere without taking huge pay cut.

All my friends are married and I only know one single guy in his 30s and he's an alcoholic.

I feel I'm "out there". I'm on the United Way board of directors and I'm a Girl Guide leader. I'm friendly and talkative. I don't really understand how I could be "out there" in a town where's no singles scene or bar scene.
