You & I are the only posters who've asked out right. We have both been rebuffed. I wish the OP luck finding what it is that he wants & escaping whatever it is that he dislikes, but I don't know if it's going to be here.
Well,thanks for your post. And if isn't here then it will be somewhere else...from where I stand I do have the freedom to look and see if a place fits the things my wife and I enjoy. If you are desperately are seeking the "why's"....of why we want to move I can share with you that we are both looking for the best opportunities and down South is one many places we are looking and it does relate to what I am going to school for. Did I need to confirm that with anyone? No, but my post was speaking of being curious about moving to Charlotte.

I hear you on that. Well, I used to love the sun and summertime. The 4 seasons of the north made the anticipation of summer so great..and I loved summer the hot days, the humid days ..it did not matter. But here, the summer feel has been eroded. Every day is hot and or humid , the joy of going out in the warmth is gone. Careful what you wish for. I thought I wanted it hot all the time too...I was wrong.....

There are 4 distinct seasons here, with winters being milder than nothern cities. I understand your pain if the heat is getting to you, I love the heat and humidity (southern raised), but dare not reside in it for long periods of time during the day. Much like I avoided those sub-zero wind chill evenings/nights in Chi-town, brutal, just down right brutal; and begging to see the sun again on some of those tough winter stretches.

The brutal winters for the past few years have been depressing. Looking forward to milder climate in the winter and don't mind the heat and humidity.

Yep, its all in what you can handle , brutal cold or extreme heat are no fun to be out in. It becomes a case of what you can deal with better.

I second that, but in reality, you still get your northern summer here (weather wise). It occurs in late spring and early autumn...I know...I know, you'll miss celebrating the 4th, etc; instead of July 4th, celebrate September 4th under the sun. Today's weather isn't too bad, moderate humidity (for us) and not steamy hot; potential for late day thunderstorms, typical southern day.

Yea..its the time between late spring and early autumn that is so painful though. I for the life of me cannot get used to the heat..never will. Its so funny, we hear about the cold and snow up north, but most northerners I know think WE are nuts to live in this sweltering heat..its all relative. You say today isnt bad..I just went outside for a minute and ran back in like there was a snowstorm going on..its humid, hot and plain disgusting...

If you are considering Charlotte with the reasons you have given, then you ought to do yourself a favor and consider Raleigh, Columbia, & Greenville (the one in SC) as well. Charlotte has a lot of issues as indicated above, and isn't particularly friendly to those looking for jobs, so you might want to look around at more than this place before you decide.
