May be I need to try these routes again during temp accommodation. I was like I dont know what these people are talking about traffic in Boston.

OP, what is the maximum commute you're thinking? Are you required in the office every day? Do you work "traditional" hours or are they flexible?
About 40 minutes sounds reasonable to me. And yeah, I need to be at office everyday and can get there anytime before 9. Hours are a little bit flexible though.

It's a reverse commute but due to the HOV lane taking out a lane on the side of the road you'd be driving on each way, there is somewhat heavier volume even though it tends to move. The bigger issue is depending on where you start from in Back Bay you can get stuck in very substantial local traffic until you can make it onto the Expressway.

Its tough to gauge in the summer because so many people take long vacations, sometimes a month or more, during the summer. My traffic is so much less now, except for the portion of 495 S on Friday afternoons, that I have to drive on.

Never married: 28.4%

Widowed: 7.9%
Divorced: 6.6%
Fenway-Kenmore Data:

Males: 8,648
Females: 14,998

Median age:
Males:
This neighborhood: 26.1 years
Whole city: 31.2 years
Females:
This neighborhood: 27.0 years
Whole city: 32.4 years


Percentage of never married males 15 years old and over:
Fenway (Kenmore Square): 34.2%
Boston: 28.8%

Percentage of never married females 15 years old and over:
Fenway (Kenmore Square): 59.1%
city: 28.2%


I tried to look up and compare Cambridge, Somerville, Back Bay areas. For some reason, Kenmore Square area seems very popular for singles. I don't know how it is in reality.

Why, just because you haven't taken it before? The subway is cheap, convenient and safe.

Kenmore is close to a lot of colleges, even more so than Cambridge, so it makes sense that the median age is lower. It's a fun neighborhood, with good restaurants and green spaces.

Yeah, but to his work over 2 miles from the Braintree T?

It's overachieving tech students/grad students and start up workers living in their labs. It will make perfect sense when you spend any time there.

Oh, I know the T doesn't make sense for the work commute, I was speaking more generally. I was getting the impression that the OP would avoid the subway entirely which is kind of ridiculous.
