New YSA boundaries are a struggle — everyone is 21, and I am 30, and it's really discouraging

Dear Angela,

I've been in a YSA ward way too long that I feel I have outgrown it. I am a 30-year-old professional, but I feel like I don't know where to fit in right now. I moved to Utah a year ago, and the ward I moved into was full of professionals, but since they changed the wards around, my ward got really small and young.

I am fine being single, I enjoy dating still, but it's just getting harder to meet someone around my age. I've thought about going to a family ward, but the area I live in is one of those "newlywed, nearly dead" wards. I just don't know what to do. Can you help me with this situation?
