San Diego, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta. If you don't mind the occasional cold front in the winter, I'd also check out Charlotte, Raleigh, and Nashville.

ooohhh I will pay attention to this one. I am thinking west because of the demographics (more single men tend to live in western cities). Places like Denver and San Jose come to mind.....or even Las Vegas perhaps.

I'm 30 and kinda in the same boat (I can't live anywhere I want!). I think some people will say big cities like Chicago and New York...I will strongly disagree with that.

Thanks, I've heard Houston & Vegas (surprisingly - I guess )
and certainly San Diego ranks high although - crime rate (gangs) I was warned against & want to look into...

Any city is going to have crime. However, in most cities it's isolated to just a few bad areas. As long as you stick to the good areas and keep a rational mind, you'll be fine no matter where you live.

SD is one of the safest big cities in America.

I would suggest SD, LA, Boston, Denver, Miami, and NYC. Coming in second would be Chicago, DC, Vegas, and Honolulu.

Denver and San Jose have way more men than women. You'd be a hot commodity out west!
