A stranger in a stranger land

If you'll still reading after my random introduction.

Thanks... Please stick around... I need readers!! ...... does best puppy dog eyed impression that somehow comes across as rather creepy then cute... story of my life really :-) 

So a word or words depending on your interpretation that you will likely here a lot around here is mid-singles. Now for those of you who know a lots about mormons you'll know instantly what this means and please feel free to fall asleep at the back of the class while I explain :-)

So basically when you're young (ish) ( or at heart) in the church and single and fall into the age bracket of 18-30 you fall under the Young Single adult program.

Which depending on your level of cynicism is either a remarkable church program, or a dating service in disguise.

Now if you reach the hallowed age of 30, asides from realising most of your peers have been married for sometime with families, getting it hit with sudden terrifying realisations that something hasn't gone quite quite right, people starting to tell you things like " These things happen in the lords time" or the more dreaded " not everyone is destined to get married in this life" and some women start to worry dreadfully about having a lot of cats, you also get hit with the fact you are no longer "officially" Young and single.

You're just single and you move into the single Adult program where to put it bluntly the age range is from 30 until Dead.

Mid singles is a program that is basically involving in the "middle ground" for want of a better term, in the age range of 25 -45.

Now in the uk it's kind of semi -official right now with arguments ranging from " it's official" to " it's not official so we shouldn't do it" to " it's in the handbook" to "It it isn't" to " It kinda is but not in the way we are doing it" to " Where's my pudding..."

No, wait that last one is probably a single adult comment :-)

Well all of the mid single activities have to be approved before they go ahead so my view is, if we shouldn't be doing it, our leaders would give permission..

Although the next person who tells me we shouldn't be doing this because it's not in the manual I'm going to mess with their heads
" If we can only do things in the way that is listed in the manual, how did we even get a manual? As surely we would need a manual to tell us we should accept and do things described in the new manual?"

And on that mind bending note, later!
