Default What is the single scene like in Colorado Springs?

I'm 27 year old single female and interested in moving to Colorado Springs. I'd like to get out of where I currently live, Chattanooga, because there isn't much in my field and the single scene sucks here. I'm curious about the dating scene, music scene, and some nightlife. Also what kinds of outdoor activities are available? Thank you.

There's precious little of that here in COLO SPGS. The real place for what you seek is in Denver. Suggest you go to the Denver forum and search on terms like nightlife or single or music scene, as there are threads in there on all that.

Sucks, sucks, sucks.
The outdoors activities are amazing, but if it is not the main concern then I would move somewhere else.

Default re-C.S. bites for singletons

hi there, sorry to inform you but i speak from direct experience when i say ( with only the intention of poliely informing you not putting you down, just so you know) colorado springs absolutely sucks for singletons. its a very 'family' friendly place to live thus, there are young couples and young families everywhere i turn. no joke. When people find out that i did not come here with a military husband and that to top it all offnot only am i not married, part of a couple nor in the military and almost 30 years old and stiill single & w/o kids people treat me more or less like a leper. other's, with pity and empathy. I would never have moved here knowing what i know now, please keep that in mind before commiting to any moving plans.

The Springs is a beautiful place with lots of military families and retirees as its primary demographic. I definitely would not recommend a single person (male or female) move there. Personally, I lived there 8 years before I finally got tired and moved away. There's a large military presence and if that isn't your thing, I don't know that there is much more going on. Nightlife is pretty nonexistent. In fact, when the troops are deployed it really feels like a ghost town. That town survives on its tourism activities, military presence and retirees. Trust me --- you’ll be bored out of your mind there. There are plenty of outdoorsy things to do in Colorado. Hiking, biking, camping, etc. That's one of the highs of living in Colorado. So you should have no problem finding things to do in that regard. I agree with the other poster who suggested that you give Denver a try instead.

Mike knows what he is talking about...Denver! Unless you are seeking for a single guy in the army or air force.

Which is not a walk in the park either unless you like feeling single for 1/2 or more of the time your dating/married.... but if I had to do it all over again I'd still marry my husband in a heartbeat.
