Been getting several questions from both single men and single women lately asking what single life is really like in The Villages.
Most are concerned that the majority of their neighbors and the people they meet will be married and that they’ll feel isolated and lonely.
Others are concerned about the common misconception that most of the people who are single in The Villages are sleeping around and are just looking for a “hook-up.
If you are single and considering The Villages too, I hope this brief article will help allay your concerns surrounding the questions above.
Will I Be Lonely?
There are tons of singles in The Villages, both male and female. I don’t think you would feel isolated at all.
When you think about it, with a population of over 100,000 people, statistically speaking there’s bound to be a lot of other single people.
Add in the fact that most of the people living in The Villages are within a decade or two age of each other, the odds are very high you’ll be able to connect with someone close in age and with similar values, goals, hobbies and lifestyle as you.

And sex sells.
If you come to The Villages looking for that sort of thing, I think you’ll be sorely disappointed.
For every “scandalous” story you hear about what its like, there are countless stories like this one that you don’t hear about: Couple who met in Sumter Singles, marry under Live Oak tree
