hello! new to the blogs.
My husband and I are waiting for his VISA, he's chilean and there waiting, working, and learning English. Chile no longer an option as the cost of living and other amenities are barely affordable as I cannot work there even teaching English. The questions: Boston vs San Diego? Vs. Dallas?
I am awaiting a response from a job at ? Licensed in Mass and New York. Should I let the job response solely dictate where I should get things set up for my husband when he comes? I only thought San Diego as it seems to be very similar to Chile.
Please candidly express thoughts/facts about cost of living, etc.... I've done quite a bit of internet comparisons but neither one of us enjoy heat or humidity. In the struggling economy, do we settle and just move for a job?

boston is expensive. boston is probably the most expensive of the 3 and dallas is the cheapest of the 3. san diego is pretty expensive too but you could probably find a decent place there.

san diego never gets too hot, never gets too cold and there isn't very much humidity. dallas gets really hot and is more humid than the west coast but less humid than the east coast. boston gets hot and humid in the summer only.

edit: didn't know you're in massachusetts already. you probably know everything i told you then.
