    Default Which city is best for you?

    WHICH CITY IS BEST FOR YOU? - Real Estate - Kiplinger.com

    Seemed semi-related. It's fun to have some sprawling discussions again.

    I got:

    Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV
    Other high-ranking cities:
    2) Sacramento--Arden-Arcade--Roseville, CA
    3) Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, TX
    4) Austin-Round Rock, TX
    5) Colorado Springs, CO


    It's funny, my top place is where my parents live and where I went to high-school. The second one is where I live currently.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    5) Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, CA

    __________________________

    I would never live in any of these places.... well, Austin's not bad... I dislike L.A. intensely... Washington D.C.'s culture doesn't appeal to me at all... Sacramento feels like nowhere to me... Houston has vibes completely at odds with my own...

    I'm much more of a New York City-Boston-Chicago kind of guy... I live in NYC.

    I think eight questions can't narrow down one's likes and dislikes enough (since things like weather and proximity to other major American urban centers is very important to me)..

    Thread split from here.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I think for a single guy on the prowl, L.A. and NYC are equally full of single women (meaning, there's no way in hell that any guy, no matter how prodigious, could come close to even exhausting a fractional amount of the opportunities in either city)... there are tons of people in both cities looking for opportunities to make it big in various fields, though NYC is far more diverse and avant-garde. The major difference between the two cities is that women in NYC tend to be smarter.

    Also... besides the fact that NYC is far cooler than L.A.... because New York City has more than double the population of L.A. (8 million versus less than 4 million) AND besides that has a constant in- and out-flow of people from Northern NJ, Long Island, Connecticut and even Pennsylvania, it easily has far more single women when one takes into account absolute numbers...

    Unfortunately, the data is skewed for the major East Coast cities, because so many African-American men die or go to prison at a young age. The percentage of single minority women in Philadelphia, NYC, Baltimore, etc. is astounding.

    See my above post for East Coast numbers. Also, if you include the metro areas, it's more like 18 million for NYC and 12-13 million for L.A. Manhattan has only about 1.5 million full-time residents, but it has more than twice that many people there working or visiting at any given time.
