Definately Austin or Houston, although Dallas and Atlanta would be good too.

Atlanta is hot. And if anyone is even thinking of coming here, you should get tickets for the professional conference for newcomers called Making It in the City LIVE: ATLANTA, on March 28, 2008. It's a full day of workshops, sessions and speakers to help anyone transition to 'big and expensive' cities on limited budgets.

I LOVE Charleston SC, Atlanta of course, Austin of course, and Raleigh/Durham area has a lot of young singles as well. Also, Asheville NC is on the smaller side but has great culture, arts, music, and a lot of young people.

To whoever said Knoxville - absolutely not. Everyone I know who is young and actually single that lives here hates it, including me - I'm 23. We all plan on bolting as soon as possible. Most people get married in the 18-22 age range, many people are closed-minded, and there is very little in the way of art, culture, and night life, unless football and Dollywood count as culture. My parents and grandparents - all retired - however love it here.

I've heard Nashville is getting hipper though it still doesn't match up to a New York or Chicago. I'm not personally acquainted with Charlotte, but a friend who grew up there said its nightlife sucks for a city that size.

Others seem to disagree on Raleigh. Raleigh or Charlotte?

New Orleans is good, esp. for jobs (for some reason) it's easier to land IT jobs here than Atlanta. And nightlife is good but its not for everyone...

Wow, guess so. I just visited once, but given the tech corridor and the reputable universities I figured there were a lot of young people. Maybe there are, they're just boring?

To be honest, I feel like Northern cities are better for young singles as a whole. People don't get married so young and it's OK to just focus on your career. Plus, most of the larger cities - Chicago, New York, DC, Philly, Boston - are up North. Maybe I'm just biased.

I think overall (jobs, nightlife, weather, sports, cost of living, culture, music scene, diversity) Atlanta wins hands down!
