In an earlier post I wanted to come on strong about shaking off commentary one may encounter for not having kids but it may have been too sharply worded. It wasn't meant as a personal criticism. It was meant as a self defense reminder to not continue the assault on yourself. I understand the pain that could be felt, by some more than others. It probably isn't wise / healthy to relive an issue and any pain about it over and over. It sounds like you know that but I guess I felt like reinforcing "trust yourself" for anyone reading and myself, on this issue or others.


As for contacting a real estate office about rentals, I am mainly repeating advice I've heard. I tend to search on my own but folks suggest checking with them because some do market rentals actively; and even if they don't, they know who does. A good agent might help a little if they think they find get a future client or just earn some visibility & goodwill. Might not work but an option.

So much of the new housing construction in Colorado is what I call "California Style"; that is, large houses on small lots, row upon row upon row. And it is like California in that most people do not know who their neighbors are. We have lived in northeast Colorado Springs for 11 years in the same house in one of these subdivisions. Everyone keeps to themselves. Sure, we wave to the neighbors and say hi when we see them, but that is about it. So if you choose to remain childless, I do not think many of your neighbors will know, and if they know, they will not care. You will not be "left out" of anything, because there is nothing to be left out of. If you buy in an older, well establish neighborhood, think big trees, it might be different, but I kind of doubt it.

Neighborhoods are what you make them. We had Friday night pot luck dinners, wine clubs, book clubs, we went out to dinner with our neighbors. Not all Colorado neighborhoods are as cold as yours sounds. Shake it up a bit. Make it happen. We are childless as well. Never was an issue.

Does Grand Junction tend to be more politically and socially conservative than other areas of Colorado?

You'll get opinions from our regulars but for objectivity just google-up election stats to see how GJ voted in past presidential elections.

My best guess is conservative.

With the notable exception of the resort towns/counties (Aspen/Pitkin, Steamboat/Routt, etc), the Western Slope is pretty much crimson red. Mesa County went to Trump 64.3% to 28%.

Self identified "religious" rate is said to be similar to rest of state (around 40%) and lower than national average (around 50%).


Most would probably say it is more socially conservative than the front range but the difference between what people say they believe & how they vote may be greater than the differences of how people live.

If this map is true, one can see quite a bit of red. One might even say it dominates the state, though not in the most populous areas (other than COS, I guess).

Yeah it dominates in terms of area but not in terms of number - the state is much more blue than shown here if you go by each vote individually rather than by county sums. Even though COS is red, 40% blue of 750,000 is a lot of blue. And although some of those very blue counties are small, they also contain many more people than nearly all of the red ones put together, in some cases.
