  • Where would you live

    You're single (but looking), in your 30s, and ready for a change of pace. The scene where you live is old. Whenever you go out, you meet the same people. Most of the people you know are married and have kids. You have a decent job as a drug rep for a major pharmaceuticals company. You would like to live in a top 50 market where the cost of living is similar to St. Louis. You'd like to live in a city that is good for single people.

    Where would you move?

    Kansas City is a great place to raise a family. If you're married by 30, it's not bad. But if you're over 30 and single, it's awful. It is always ranked the worst place to live for single people. St. Louis is a little better, but not much.

    Baltimore, Jacksonville, Detroit (ugh), Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Memphis, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio are fairly close to St. Louis and Kansas City in cost of living.

      Is this autobiographical?

      And if I had a choice (SOL not a hindrance): Scottsdale, AZ; San Diego, CA; San Francisco, CA; Seattle-area, WA; Toronto, ONT; and Gallway, IRE...

        Dallas.

        Cost of living is very close to St. Louis.

        Although I don't have one yet, you can get a good deal on a house...

        It's fantastic down here.

        Oh, I'm single and 32.

          I'll agree with that. I lived in Coppell for two years and really liked it. I'll also agree that my pick of London is outside the USA.

            Oh, in the USA...scrap the foreign ones...

            Columbus, OH intrigues me as does South Carolina, Denver, CO and Minneapolis, MN for some strange reason...

              Anyone who visited Davidson, North Carolina would love it. Austin, Texas has some nice things to recommend about it. Nashville, Tennessee is a well kept secret.

                Portland is nice, but small-ish. Minneapolis is fantastic (except for November-March). I like St. Louis. New York and Washington DC are great fun.
                The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.

                  I'm going to Washington next weekend. I haven't been there in eons. I'm torn between going to both Card games and ditching one game to go to the Smithsonian, etc. What would you do?

                    Columbus is actually a nice city...I had a very casual relationship with a girl there quite a few years back...visited it a couple of times...not bad...
