Greetings everyone,

I visited Colorado Springs back in the Summer of 2002 and 2003 and fell in love with the mountains and the city. I vowed to myself that I would move out there when the opportunity arose. Now it is four years later and this May I will be graduating college with a degree in psychology. My questions are these...

How does someone even start to live in Colorado Springs? I mean. There are so many unknowns to me. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Obviously, get a job. Yet, I wonder how the job market is for someone like me. Find a place to live. But where is good place? with a good neighborhood?

Well, I'll be graduating in May with my Civil Engineering degree. I just accepted a job in the CS downtown area. I'll be starting in June so I'm going to take several trips up there to find an apt. and become more familiar with the area. Once you find a job, my advice would be to stay fairly close to the location of your job. And maybe sign a short term lease so your not stuck in a place that your not happy in. Once you become more familiar with an area that is appealing to you, than consider moving. But everybody on this website is very helpful. I just browse all of the topics and find something of interest to me all the time.
Good luck

If you're single and not encumbered with too much "stuff" at this point, you might think about renting a room in a house. These are available for anywhere from $300-$600 a month. You can find a Colorado Springs network at roomiematch.com

If you happen to be single and/or would like to be able to enjoy any type of dating scene then I would HIGHLY encourage you to reconsider relocating to either Denver or Fort Collins. I moved out here in 2005 and there are absolutely no singles in this city(except for divorced military personell who stick around here). Colorado Springs is solely a city for families. (at least it seems that way to me) Just my .02
