Just few cities I was thinking about. I spent alot of time traveling and have been to many major cities, but looking for city that has night life and jobs and can settle down in. I'm 27 years old I'm single and majoring in Information Computing and technology. I have lived in several cities and my wanna find city that's affordable and career oriented city, beautiful women and easy to make friends and decent weather would be nice and great public transportation would be nice. So please give me some positive feed back and let me know if any of these cities would be good for me to establish a future in.

Chicago, because it has more to do and more of a big city feel.

San Diego because of the year round weather and activities making it ideal to get involved in whatever it is you like to do and meet people.

Seattle comes to mind. It's one of the major tech hubs of the USA.

I highlighted what you'll find in Seattle.

I underlined "decent" because the weather in Seattle is a tale of two extremes. Horrid, cold, and drizzly weather where you don't see the sun for days on end in the winter. At least it doesn't snow often.

In the summer though, GLORIOUS! 75 and sunny every day.

Seattle is career oriented but people don't kill themselves for work on average. If a person is working long hours, it's typically because they like it. Seattle also have pretty good public transport (though you will still need a car if you wanted to easily travel between the city and one of the myriad suburbs).

I find the women beautiful here. They typically focus on the content rather than the makeup. They're not butch, but they aren't "glamorous." I also found lots of blondes here. Lots of asian women too, if you're into them.

The biggest thing would probably be the friends thing. Seattle people are very reserved in public and rarely make friends outside of meet ups or social gatherings or work.

Blondes and Asians are my two favorite types, which is why I would love it back there. For the OP's case, I think Seattle and San Diego would be the best fit, and maybe LA. But I think San Diego is close enough to L.A. without being in it, so that might be better.
