Fort Lauderdale is calling your name. It's calling your name, it's calling your name.

Honestly, I think a lot of it will just depend on my ability to find a good job opportunity.

As for DesertSW's comment about there being a huge gay population within 100 miles of New Haven.....LOL. Okay look...while that is technically true, in actual reality, it just isn't practical. The vast majority of the guys in that radius comes from NYC. And guess what about NYC guys. 80% of them don't even have a car, nor do they even look or care to look for guys in Connecticut. Why would they care? In fact, me and my gay brother have joked before saying that if a gay guy in NYC has to look for guys in CT, then he's desperate.

Also, ironically, many New Haven guys don't even have a damn car...it's ridiculous! New Haven is such a bubble city and they all act like a half hour drive is a HUGE deal....if they even have a car, that is. They won't even bother to look or talk to guys in Fairfield County or Hartford County, most of the time (no joke). All they care about is their immediate vicinity of New Haven, which is a very provincial college town where everyone practically knows everyone....albeit the largest gay community within CT.

Yes, I do think this should be your most important consideration. If you get offered a great job with a great company, I'd seize upon that regardless of where it is. I do think Atlanta offers a higher standard of living in relation to salary levels than most cities in the US, hence all the crazy traffic...lol.

I'd be more focused on asking questions about a particular place once you've landed a suitable job offer. I say apply to jobs in the cities on your list, and see what comes of it. Otherwise, it's a moot point, imo.

A question - if you get a great offer in New Haven or Hartford, will you accept that, knowing that'll probably keep you in CT for a few more years?

That wasn't my comment, that was Dawn Davenport, though I did rep him for it. I agree though, I think it's your attitude, not geography. For every suggestion or solution, you negate most every one and respond with yet another problem. You focus so much time and attention on the negative, so why would you expect anything else but negative results? You've run the whole gamut for every part of the country with a subtle interest, followed by every negative reason imaginable. We've pretty much figured out that geography isn't the issue here.

See, you always place your focus on whatever negative issue that you can either find or fabricate somehow, which hinders your ability to actually find something, someone, or some place compatible. That's why you keep recycling these same relocation thread topics that you started eons ago.

I am staunchly opposed to Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Nashville, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Salt Lake City and Phoenix.

San Francisco or Boston would be the best places!

But 30 is young, and who can tell a 30 year old from a 26, 27,28 and so on. At 30, you can still look like you are in your 20s and some in their 20s look like they are in their 30s. Thirty is still pretty young.

Seriously..... The cities you are Staunchly opposed to you haven't even been to correct? Don't judge a book by its cover.
Yes, I have been to most of those cities that I'm staunchly opposed to. I don't like the vibe and culture because I find it to be too conservative. Personal preference...no offense.

nep, you're going to have to compromise on something. Have you reconsidered NYC? Or what about LA even?
