    Julia Yarbough is tired of being single. So she has hit the road with her best friend on a mission to find a husband.

    At age 44, Yarbough had just about everything -- a high-paying job as a TV news anchor, a nice house and plenty of friends. But something was missing: a man.

    "People say you don't need a man," she said. "I disagree with that. I think we do. You need that other aspect in your life. I'm not afraid to say that to people."

    So she left her job, packed up her car and hit the road with her best friend, Silva Harapetian. Together, they are on a mission to find Yarbough a husband.

    Along the way, they are blogging about their dating adventures. They're also trying to start a serious dialog about relationships.

    "For whatever reason, in the times we live in, men and women do not seem to connect," Yarbough said.

    "In that lack of communication, a lot of us end up being alone, men and women," Harapetian said.

    After starting in Miami and traveling through six states, the women said they are still optimistic.

    "(I) met a lot of great friends, but no husband-material quite yet. But I'm not giving up hope," Yarbough said. "I know he's out there somewhere."
