Um..no. I have been in Charlotte since Feb 2. I will be here until at least the end of the month, unless I decide to leave and go somewhere else.

There are less type A personalities, for sure.

Yes, actually. I find it easier to approach people in general, whether in public or at a bar. The men are easier to approach (I'm gay) and start a conversation with, and they are much more willing to spend time with you and hang out. These things were clearly more challenging in CT, because most people there are too reserved, arrogant or judgmental.

And definitely less Type A personalities, which helps tone down the pace and attitudes.

So yes, Charlotte clearly wins over CT in terms of the friendliness and approachability of the people.

You've described CT very accurately in one sentence.

Yup. Even my straight friends in CT have complained about how challenging it is just to meet an attractive, non-materialistic, good-personality girl (at least the white girls, anyway).

Geez...I don't think I'm compelled to stay here in Charlotte and continue looking for jobs in the area. Upon discussion with my recruiter, she said that most jobs around here in my field only give 2 weeks of paid vacation per year. For someone who lives far from family in CT and wishes to visit his family a few times per year, that's awful. How will I have enough time to take a "fun" nonfamily vacation for myself and have some days available for personal days, 3-day weekends, etc?

Plus, I'm running out of budgeted money to stay here and continue living with no job. I can't really go beyond the end of Feb unless I either (a) secure employment by the end of the month, or (b) sell some stock, which would allow me to stay here for about two more months. But even then, I'm not compelled to look for a job that only gives two weeks of vacation per year. How pathetic.

In CT, most employers gave at least 3 weeks per year. What the hell?
