I am not that familiar with Ft Lauderdale other then the airport but like I stated in Palm Beach County in Boca. I think Ft Lauderdale is Broward and there is Coconut Creek and Coral Creek that I thought was an affordable yet safe area. All areas I feel in FL have some bad patches where you can drive a mile or two and it is ahuge change in safety/appearance. I have heard many like downtown Delray area. If you are planning to visit I would try to do it off season when rates are cheaper. I did not do this and learned how expensive inseason is. What about West Palm area?

Ft. Lauderdale but the singles scene at that age (any age really) can be a little sleazy.

i'll second the sleazy part. But FTL is a really good option when considering night life and good atmosphere. As for safety it really depends, I lived in Lauderdale by the sea where I never felt unsafe and its just a few minutes from Las Olas. Then again its just like any big city where you can end up in a not so nice area in hurry if you dont know where you are.

I do not agree with your statement of " chock full of sexually- frustrated single thirty-something females...." Sex is very easy to get. I think what makes them look frustrated, and perhaps you are confusing it with sex, is that there are no quality males of marrying- age for woman today. 50% of the men are married, 30% are gay, 20% are losers on drugs, alcohol, and unemployed. Enough to make any female today frustrated!!!!

More for the rest of us. I don't see the problem.

Your price range will definately limit you to areas like Tampa/St Pete, Orlando, Fort Myers and Daytona Beach, all of which are great for 35-55 year old singles on their second wind. Problem is with the economy, you might have a problem finding a job -- for maybe even a year -- and may have to park cars, wash dishes or flip burgers until you find financial happiness!

Best advice I received moving to a new Florida town is to ask women when you meet them:
  1. Have you been prescribed any psych meds?
  2. Are you taking them?


Good Luck!

I lived on the east coast and found it to have a number of transients, difficult to make friends outside of work, and all about the bling. I went there to take care of a family member, not by choice. Also jam packed full of people and stores. Ft. Lauderdale wasn't to bad but you need the money to play. According to searches I'v done, Tampa has the highest number of singles over 40, but I have not been to the area. I went ot WPB a few months ago, just more crowded and less trees..
