Hello,

If you were in your late 20s/early 30s, single, no kids, no career or house holding you in a particular location . . . in 2017 WHERE would you move to to start over and meet lots of new friends?

Where in the USA?

Lots of cities seem to have people who already have their families and close friends established and they're not looking to connect with new people and make new friends and start convos with strangers while out and about town

I'd want some place that has a pretty good amount of people my age (20s and 30s)


Please let me know which cities you would recommend.

Thank you

Personally,I would choose Abilene or San Angelo or Lubbock,Texas if I wanted to start over..However, most other people would prefer a bigger metro.Maybe somewhere like San Antonio or Austin or the Metroplex or Houston or Seattle or Denver could work for you.What is your budget for housing?

Budget - I'll just find a cheap spot somewhere as long as it's drivable to an area where it is easy to make friends

okay define "cheap".....cheap is a relative term.....what may be cheap to one person may not be cheap to you.Maybe New Braunfels,Texas.....good driving access to San Antonio and Austin.

Cities that are growing with a high number of inbound residents are going to be your best. For affordable (in terms of housing costs versus salaries) and friendlier I would say cities like Nashville or Charlotte are the kind of places to look into.

Recommend a place that has lots of outdoor activities such as hiking where it's easier to meet people and outdoors people are friendlier. Las Vegas has lots of such activities and you can find them at meetup.com. Search the area you like and the activity
