Help! Where could I move? I cannot decide!

I am 28 year old single female. No pets. No children. Decent savings to relocate. All packed up & ready to move somewhere brand new.

I want to live in a snowless climate.
I want a city with a noteworthy nightlife.
A city where there's young professionals & a decent economy.
I want to avoid a city that caters to families and children. I am looking to
be flirty & single.

I've lived in Denver, Chicago, L.A., Milan Italy, Las Vegas, southwest Florida.

I've visited Austin & Dallas TX. Not impressed with anything I saw there. I know a few people in Austin who are leaving.
I scoped out Phoenix and there's not a enough to do there to interest me. (Although I love the desert climate.)
California is flat out too expensive.

I'm considering Jacksonville, Tampa or Miami Florida. Although from my research I hear the economy is worse there than Texas. I'm not fond of Florida at all, but I'm frustrated in my current situation and want out of here ASAP. So, I am keeping an open mind.

Any suggestions greatly welcomed.

No snow but you've elimintated/don't like Fla, Tex, Az and California? I'd say wherever you end up you'll have to learn a little contentment. I really don't know what else to suggest. Houston is very culturally diverse but I don't know how it works for singles. Plenty of partying in New Orleans. I'd say go to San Diego and just suck it up on the high prices. Sounds to me like you'd like it there if you could find a way to pay bills.

Snowless? If it ever DOES snow, the last place you want to be is near Atlanta.

Thanks everyone. I've never been to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale areas. I hear it's a lot of fun and very beautiful down there. Never been to Atlanta either. New Orleans is a blast. I've been there a few times. Making the decision is the difficult part!

Maybe you should do the OPPOSITE of what you want and see what happens? Seems like doing what you think is right hasn't worked the best for you so far, so why not try something completely different? You may find that the things that bothered you in the past really aren't the issue at all.
