I think you are your partner should try a less expensive yet still somewhat liberal area. Connecticut is very expensive in every way and if you do not have a professional career you will be working all the time to just make ends meet. They tax everything here!! Austin, TX is a great little city. I know its Texas but its not really its more like northern California. Very gay friendly. Great art
scene and you can always find service industry jobs that pay well. I know its Texas but it is the only county that was a blue county while the rest of the state was red. Yes it is great that we have gay marriage here in Connecticut but until it changes on a federal level it we really are not seeing the benefits (taxes) from it. Go to school first, get your degree then move to a more expensive state.

Getting out of Jacksonville and moving to CT will improve your quality of life significantly, IMO. I spent 18 months in Jacksonville before moving here, and as a heterosexual, Jewish male, found it to be a very conservative city with a small-town feel. I had a friend who was a police officer there (and graduate-degreed), who told me that the police force was very much a good ol' boy network and quite redneckish, for lack of a better term.

I'm gay too, and in CT, no one cares if you are in a homosexual relationship. Like others said, as long as you keep to yourself and don't advertise it, you will be fine.

HAHAHAHA! I (Dawn) post 99.99% of the time, but it seems that my husband (Jeremy) piped in on this one.
