I lived in CO for 5.5yrs, 3 of those in Co Springs. I loved it sometimes but it never felt like home. Home is wherever your heart is, and if your heart isn't there BAIL!! I enjoyed things there but I don't regret leaving Co spgs and I am even thinking about relocating again.

And yes, it is very transitive and can't make up it's mind in many arenas. The gov. does things part way so it sits in transition indefinitely. Most towns in CO that grow always seem like overgrown mining towns and don't decide what to focus on. And the crime rate was shocking per capita. I was mugged in a gated community. I was also living in Denver when the Columbine incident happened and not surprised one bit.

Well, that's my $.02 best of luck to you and keep searching because happiness is possible

You were not surprised that some 13 students and a teacher got murdered in cold blood? I was living not to far from there at the time and it shocked the wholey bjaysuz out of me.

The Columbine Massacre was an unacceptable horror, as was Pearl Harbor, the bombing in Oklahoma City, and the terrorist attacks that occured in New York City, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania, etc.

What happened to you is unfortunate as well. I've rarely been inside a gated community and I've never been mugged. So there ya go. What the hell does this have to do with Colorado Springs?

Home is where the heart is. That's what they say. Your heart isn't too far from your arse. So sit your arse down somewhere and enjoy the moment.

We lived there only a year and grew to dislike it quite a bit, too. We had been told that "winters are mild" and the last winter was certainly NOT mild. The city seems very run down and lacking great grocery stores, dining, or shopping. Every time we went out to eat, some fundamentalist was loudly proclaiming his/her faith at the table next to us or giving a soapbox speech about why children should be spanked (lots of Dobson followers there). We found ourselves driving to Denver all the time because we missed the amenities of a larger, nicer city. I'm glad we moved away...

Default Location in the Springs has alot to with it.

I had just the opposite experience when I stayed at a bed in breakfast in Old Colorado Springs for a week. The owner of the bed and breakfast spent the whole week talking about his more liberal views. I believe some parts of Colorado Springs are more conservative/fundamentalist and others such as Old Colorado Springs are more liberal/secular.

colorado springs is real bad, not much going on. people are very conservative in everyway. i lived there for 5 yrs and i had to bail to denver. low wages and boredom was killing me there. people in CS is like this, all they care about is simple things in life. food, shelter, bingo, and church thats it. thats all they want and all they need.

I just moved out here from Minneapolis and bout to head up to Denver also only because im more of a city boy, but even though im not from here it iratates me when people talk down on this town, because ive lived in so many places that make COS look like heaven, and any one thats says its boring here, there prolly jus boring people, I dnt kno if its becuase my girls from here and she know wut popin on wut nights, but since I been out here ive been havin a ball, I mean you got the Mountains and all the outdoor activities, people said on here that the night life shuts down at 2, buts thats a lie I was down on tajon and like for differnt clubs werent closin till 4, also been to a couple parties that actully suprised me on how crunk colorado can get. I have noticed all the people on here talkin all this consevitive and church stuff live on the north side of town, but can tell you that the down south its nuthi like that

Its split,some people like Colorado Springs and some people don't.To some people this may be the most boring place they've lived,to others it might be the funnest place they've lived.Everyone's not going to have the same experiences in Colorado Springs.I was just up in Denver the other day and Im not a big fan of it.I guess Im just not a Colorado person.I can definetly agree with the OP,the weather here isn't too good,at least in the two years I've been here.Colorado Springs is pretty boring too.
