Sentence: Joice always seems to make the maidenchoice. She always seems to make decisions that keep her from meeting guys. Whether it's where she lives, between two retirement communities or her job in the morgue, she rarely finds herself in a position to meet anyone datable. The last handsome young man she saw in person was very cold, laying on a stainless steel table. The ugly hole in his head was a major deterrent to a night on the town.

Etymology: maiden (a girl or young woman, esp. an unmarried one) + choice (an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities)

Does that mean that all the young women who live on Maiden Choice Lane won't find suiters?

Yes she's in a job where there is stiff competition to find a live one...especially with that co-worker of hers, Myra Mains!
