Minneapolis looks pretty good. I checked out the housing on Zillow and it's not bad. Someone told me there are tons of bugs there though in the summer.

I have not read through all the responses, but what came up as a question is: Why are you in Colorado in the first place?

I have moved from Colorado Springs to Denver, and then when I was laid off, back to Colorado Springs. I am here for the hiking/walking. You may make more money in Denver, but will you be happier? Have you driven around there to see if it is a place you would want to live?

If you want a job in Denver that pays more money, perhaps you can consider staying in the Springs and finding a place to stay 2-3+ days a week in Denver to alleviate the commute challenges. You can also see during that phase if you like the Denver position and the area. In that manner, you will not need to make a commitment to move and it could alleviate stresses for you (I have big issues with too much stress/anxieties so try to alleviate both).

As I am often reminded too (I accepted a lower paying job in Pueblo but with a great boss and team environment), money is not everything. Being happy and healthy is a priceless gift.

I hope that helps but feel free to send me a PM -

All the best! Annie

Hi there,

when I see you considering Tennessee....anywhere in Tennessee...please let me advise you that it is a state full of hate. I was just reading an article about all the hate groups that have sprung up here just in this year and it's getting worse. currently I have my home for sale and am planning to move maybe there due to the daily discrimination I am receiving simply because am a little different and these people have labeled me a '******'. I have heard them reference me as "a Caitlyn" and I am a hairy masculine man. I would highly discourage you from even considering moving here unless you are a beautiful female that no one would even think twice about you being trans. and then I would suggest you be ready to live in the 'closet' and the doctors here they will take your money but they are in with that crowd...

let me know if you need any more info. I will be glad to give you any. it sounds from the responses you got from others that Colorado is a little more accepting. I hope this is the case as I am heading that way as soon as my home sells. As you stated, I am not in anyones' face waving a flag...but the confederate ones are sure flying here. and they all call themselves Christians, flaunting their hate in the name of Jesus and God. I sincerely wish you the best of luck.

Have you considered commuting from Springs to Denver? I have a couple of co-workers who do that. If you can get a job with flex schedule and work at least 1-2 days from home that would probably help.

Also, just IMO: I'd take some Southern cities (Atlanta, Houston, Austin) over any Midwestern cities (Indy, C-Bus), to be honest. I am just saying I do not think that Midwest would be any better in terms of culture. I am cis, but gay, and lived in the midwest for about a decade (in a small blue college town). I thought that the people were just super bitter and angry. Plus, the food is pretty bland. No mountains or the ocean... you can't beat the lakes though. Those are pretty. If you are into kayaking that's a really nice place to be.

FYI: The OP has not been back since the day this thread was started. Not sure what decision may have been made but we may as well not spend anymore effort here.

The commute from CS to Denver is brutal so you would be desperate to want to do that.

Of course it is "still better than where I came from" according to a lot of new transplants.

Quality of life and your sanity spent in traffic is pretty important to most people.
