Single Woman Quits Job, Hits Freeway Of Love

View Comments (


    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."

    Tired of being single, a woman is traveling the country with her best friend in search of a husband.

    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."
