Hello, all!
yes, this is another one of those "I'm moving to..." threads- sorry.

My wife and I are looking to move from northwest Ohio, to a new location that is more inline with our alternative lifestyles. Right now we're considering Columbus (ohio), Chicago, Indianapolis, and Atlanta.

What i would like to know is, what location do you all suggest, that will allow us to live in safety, raise our children properly, and still keep us close to the pagan, swinger, and bdsm communities. The metro areas are preferable- we wouldnt mind driving half an hour or fourty five minutes to get to an event, but we dont want to live in the sticks either (yet). ALthough, a clean, cheap, and safe place in town would be good too.

Oh, and keep in mind that well be raising a family of 5 on about $60k annually, give or take.

I spent a summer in Lawrenceville/Winder back in '98, and really liked it- well everything but the traffic lol. Of course, i was uber conservative back then, so maybe it's different. but i remember an energy there, so much new construction, and very little, if any, ugly areas. I'm hoping to see the mall of Georgia again- it was just a pile of dirt and steel beams the last time i saw it! lol

waddayall think?

Thanks a million!

Woah... this has got to be a first... hmmm, uh Little 5 Points? But I don't think 60k is going to "swing it" there.. (sorry, couldnt resist)

I think you are very well priced out of the markets that meet your liberal leanings... What price home do you think you can afford?

Well ... um... this is certainly going to be interesting.

ON that note, I doubt on 60k a year that Atlanta is the place for you in the areas you'd probably want to live in that's supportive of the "hobbies" you incorporate. Austin Texas is actually kinkier than people think it is (don't ask), and cheaper, too. Maybe start there.

You could try renting the back room of one of the local 'Insurections'

I don't know where you live in northwest Ohio, but Atlanta can be very expensive. Especially for the type entertainment you describe. My husband and I are here with one child and we're struggling. We have no entertainment aside for an occasional Netflix. A family of five on $60k is going to have a really tough time, unless you're willing to live in a 'less-desirable' neighborhood.

So you've forsaken your pagan, swinging, bdsm lifestyle in favor of an occasional Netflix rental?

Sorry- couldn't resist that one.......lol
