like I said, and the very reason I posted "this is getting off track", not to mention sent you a DM instead of a rebuttal, was to avoid all of this nonsense.

can we please simply stick to COS?

Hey, it's not that serious. AshleyT sounds like a free spirit. Plus, re-read her post, she's 23. She's doing a "stream-of consciousness" writing here. This is like a blog for her and we're all invited.

Remember 23? She's already worried about her "conscience being hushed". Isn't that enough for one person to deal with?! Laugh.

Kidding aside....Colorado Springs is a nice place. I second a vote for going to check it out. It's the only way that you'll really know if it's your kind of town.

Other places that I personally think that you may like based on nothing but my own opinion. Hint: Don't waste time arguing against these cities, it's not that serious...

(1) Boulder
(2) Portland
(3) Seattle
(4) Anchorage (Surprised? It's the anti-Dallas, trust me).
(5) Wildcard: San Antonio.
Some people would say Austin, but it's not so different from Dallas to me.

Good luck in wherever you go. Keep roamin'....

1 - Boulder - No way, it's like the San Francisco of Colorado.
2 - Portland - No way, it's like the San Francisco of Oregon.
3 - Seattle - No way, it's like the San Francisco of Washington.
4 - Anchorage - Yeah, baby. It's like the anti-San Francisco!
5 - San Antonio...not too bad, at least it's not Austin, which is like the San Francisco of Texas.

Cheers

Bob

No way. Hot and full of stupid people. Horrible city planning and never ended construction. We moved from there to Colorado Springs. San Antonio was the government's choice, COS was ours.

Ashley:
Any city can be boring. This morning it was -5 when I woke up. Try that on for Jan.
Take a vacation here in the winter to see how you feel. You'll probably miss the warm weather and the big city if that's all you've known. Unless you're a natural for the cooler weather and smaller cities. There's a lot less culture here than Dallas.

i'd recommend reading many, many threads and posts on the colorado forum to get a feel for how you might fit, and how it might fit you. it sounds as though the "fit" is what you're having trouble with in dallas, largely, so the "fit" might be what you're after; if it's the vegetation and the sort of removed, norman rockwellian romance of things without consideration of the people that matters most, that could be one thing, while if the interpersonal side of life matters to you, that might be another. either way, i think that my first recommendation might be of value for you. i would also say it might be worth a talk with anyone you know in colorado (or that's spent appreciable time here) that knows you well could serve you right. some visiting might be good, though i am not sure visits get people far beyond surface impressions; what it might be like to be on vacation in colorado.

good luck.

I agree, though I think it would be a big mistake to move here sight unseen.
