Maybe someone here can help me out. This is going to sound really bad but I need to find a pretty single girl! I just moved from Los Angelos to Orcas Island (located off the coast of Washington State). There is not a single girl on this island. It's driving me nuts. What am I gonna do? I haven't had a date since November. Maybe someone here can give me some advice or maybe someone might know off a cutie living somewhere around here. Even if she lived on the mainland, that would even be cool. Please help . Thanks.

What, with that face that only a mother could love?  Sorry, Trev, but you did submit your own photo, right?  
Just kidding!!!
I'm very nearly in the bellybutton of the continent these days, so helping out a west coast islander would be a stretch.  But I feel for ya.  Good luck!
But hey, just think of all the lonesome guy poetry you can write!  You may never get this chance again!  Go for it, Trev!!!

Hey Trevor.... I love the picture!  
I've not yet met you so Welcome to Passions.
I'd also like to welcome you to my corner of the world.
All the women that I know here are either married, or completely
not sutable for any man! LOL
But I will certainly keep my ears and eyes open for you.
Glad to have you so close by!  
And good luck!

Would an 'ugly' do instead of a cutie?

Hmmm....that all depends Poet. Of course looks aren't everything, but she'd have to have some good personality traits going for her too. I trust you Devine, I think. (lol)

Thanks,

Thats kind of hard cause no ones perfect (lol). Ummm...lets see. A cute girl, good sense of humor, nice personality, likes to have fun, etc. Geez...height really doesn't matter (I'm 6'2"), hair and eye color doesn't matter, slim to athletic build, likes to drive (she'd have to like it, to want to come over to see me). I don't know. I'm a 19 yr old college student (Major - Marine Biology) who loves music and the water. I'm very spontaneous and I'm wishing I had a different picture right now cause that one is horrible (lol). I've got a crazy sense of humor and I love to shop and go to the movies. Thats all I can think of for right now.

Maybe you should just get out on the mainland and do a search party on your own. I live in Puerto Rico, I can't help much.


I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow

Far be it from me to suggest you change your wonderful photo, Trev... I will say this, though... Girls love a sense of humor... but they want to know what a guy looks like too???.... How could they resist such an adorable smile, after all????

HMPF! I see how I rate.
I try and help and I don't even get a hello!
And I seem to be the ONLY one, so far that is close enough to you to help!
I'll remember that Mister!

My apologies Irie, can you ever forgive me?  I just hope you know that I greatly appreciate your replies to this, even if they are alittle sarcastic (lol). I'm just really struggling right now.

Walking through my home
Late at night
My eye’s still groggy from sleep
Sounds of cars
Passing by my window
Like a drum with a steady beat

Into the kitchen
To wash my hands
And to dry them on my shirt
Back to bed
With dismal cravings
Of my pillow on which to flirt

I dream the dreams
Like many people
Of finding my one true love
On a sandy beach
A wayward town
Or in the stars above

I search her out
To all four corners
The earth is at my feet
I know she’s out there
Waiting for me
Our smiles are meant to meet

I will continue to dream
Like always before
Of our love that is meant to be
But until then
I must wait
Until she dreams of me

Ok Trevor,
You're forgiven, I'll let you off the hook this time.  Hehe
I was only giving you a hard time anyway, I wasn't trying to be
sarcastic with you at all. (sorry)

How do you like Orcas Island anyway?

I love the poem you posted here, you've done
an excellent job with it.
You've expressed your feelings and desires quite well.

Well, I'm off to enjoy the rain.....
Hope you have a good one.

First off, you are trying too hard.  Second, do you need or want?  If you need, then what is the cause?

Orcas Island is this beautiful place you dream of retiring at, not living there when your 19 years old. Don't get me wrong or anything, this place is pretty awesome, but there is hardly anyone here my age. Everyone here is into the drug and drinking scene, which I am not, or they're into other outrageous things. The only single girls here are either 12 years old, or 50. It's just really tough for me.

You should definitly search for yourself. I live so far away from you it's not even funny. So I'd be no help at all. If there are no chicks by you then maybe you should move??

Alright, check this out. I met this girl at work who just happened to be single. She seemed really sweet, smart, funny, and she's gorgeous. Finally, I ask her out and she agrees only to turn me down the next day saying that she decided over night that she doesn't want to date a co-worker. I had no problem with this. Then, about a week later, she changes her mind again and invites me over to her house to watch a movie and to cook me dinner. I show up and there she is, with two other guys smoking weed and drinking beer. I think that all girls on this island are stoners! Any other suggestions?
