Single life- thoughts?

Hello everyone!

I was wondering what the single life on STX is like. I am a 27yo dentist who is pretty outgoing. Are there many single women from the mainland in that age range? Tips?

Any thoughts/opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Well, I can't help you much. #1, I am already spoken for; #2 I live on STT; #3 you are too young for me! 😀 But I have plenty of single friends on St Thomas and single life doesn't look a whole lot different "here that there" Perhaps there are a few more kooky people here in the Islands, but what does that say about me? Bwhahahahahahaha!!

Life as a single professional on STX kinda sucks. There's sort of a circle of low-to-mid 20s single service industry types that are here during high season (if you're into that sorta crowd), but not much else. I came down here ten years ago as a single, female, 30-year-old attorney and most of my friends were then, and still are, married couples 5 to 10 years older than me who did not find their spouses here.

Iris- what was the biggest difficulty- was it a lack of single people, or a lack of single professionals in your age range?

IMO, both are an issue here, just because it's such a small town sorta place, but the latter was definitely a bigger issue for me. Like I said, there appears to be a whole group of single, mostly seasonal, post-college, service industry folks in their early 20s here on island, but that wasn't (and still isn't) really the social group I was looking for. I had a good friend here in the early '00s, also an attorney, who was in his late 20s and dated a lot, but it was mostly young bartenders, waitresses, and tourists he would pick up at the Divi or Buccaneer beaches -- i.e., people passing through, not people making a life here. I guess it just depends on what you're looking for.

I will say that F'sted and the West End seem to have a younger, more single (maybe a little crunchier/granolaier, too) vibe (I have no hard data) than C'sted and the East End (which is where I've mostly lived during my time here), so that probably factors into my experience as well.

STX is a small town, no question about it. Everybody knows everybody, and all rules about dating in such places apply.
