I am in a position where I am about to begin my career, and have the ability to choose any area of Florida in which to begin said career. I hate traffic, overpopulation, and a large percentage of the population that speaks poor English or no English at all. I would like my future city to be an area where the apartments/homes are, in general, newly constructed.

As a single male in my mid-twenties, it is also important that the area I choose have an adequate pool of attractive, smart, fun, and educated women that I can date. I would like to find a steady girlfriend/future wife, with relative ease, in the area I choose.

I grew up in Northeast Miami-Dade County, and have nothing but disgust and disdain for the entirety of that county. I worry that Broward and Palm Beach are going to become mirror images of Dade county at some point in the near future. I am open to look at all areas of the state except the panhandle. Not sure why I am discriminating, but I am.

I think I am looking for a moderately sized city/metropolitan area that offers much of the amenities of South Florida, Tampa Bay, or Orlando, but that is less congested, not as fully developed, and offers a more mellow pace of life.

I appreciate all of your help.

No options in Florida....

Try Manhattan ( NY ) or L.A. the Melrose area, or Venice Beach, maybe SF ( Calif ).

San Diego, Mission Beach would be perfect.

Be prepared to spend $$$.

I heard the major cisites in NC has a lot of young people.

Any moderately sized city/metropolitan area is going to have traffic.
Girls? thats going to depend on you not the city.
Charleston or Savannah might be worth a bit of research.

It sounds like Texas would be a great match for you.

If you don't want any of the major cities here, then I can't think of anywhere in Florida that would meet your needs. There are places that offer some, but not all of what you are looking for. And what do you mean by "moderately sized area?" No one can guarantee any place that will lead to romance/marriage for anyone.

I think you need to loosen up your standards a bit - maybe you didn't mean it that way, but your post sounds a bit condescending.

Well, most of Florida is regarded as a stupid state, so I would get out all together. Most of the reasons you hate Miami are just as bad if not worse in Orlando, mi orgullo!
