You not merely stating your own opinion. You are asserting your opinion as though it is every young person's opinion.

I lived in Greenville most of my 20's and 30's and I loved living here. I have a ton of friends who love living here.

Based on what the OP wants, there are better options, pretty simple. Please keep argueing, as you always do

I also like how you have no other comment to my previous response, sucks to assume and be totally wrong right?

You are the one looking for the argument. My suggestion isn't for you. And the OP doesn't have to consider it. It is a suggestion.

The OP never mentioned population. You assumed he or she is looking for a larger metro. It doesn't make sense to argue my suggestion doesn't fit the criteria that he gave.

According to your post history, you were thinking about moving to Greenville yourself a few years ago and you appear to be in your 20s. It is weird my suggestion of Greenville would annoy you. If I recall right, you also appear to get annoyed when I posted a list that had Greenville as one of the top cycling cities in the country. I didn't even mention Greenville in that post, I only posted the link to the list.

I go downtown with friends and coworkers and see other young people down there. It is a vibrant downtown area packed out with restaurants and bars and retail stores and nice parks and a baseball stadium and an arena, etc. There are festivals and live music and farmers market all the time on Main Street. Furman and Clemson students are often down there. Clemson's MBA / graduate business college is located in a building on Main Street.

I don't understand how your suggestions offer anymore than this, other than pro sports in some of them and a large university in the downtown area. I think Greenville has a better downtown than the ones that you listed that I'm aware of, like Raleigh. And Raleigh isn't at the base of the Blue Ridge.

If a young person likes getting outside, Greenville as as good as any place in the country, with proximity to the Blue Ridge mountains, several pristine lakes, waterfalls, whitewater rivers. There are also a ton of nice golf courses in the area.

I am in my 30s and I love living in Greenville, and I lived here in my mid 20s when I was single. Why wouldn't I recommend it to other young people.

There are quite a lot of lonely young people out there if the only way young people can meet new people is to live in the largest metros. There are a lot of young people not living in those metros. I lived in the small city of Aiken SC near Augusta GA for two years in my twenties and I knew a ton of people there and had plenty to do. That was like being in college.

Here's a list of the top 25 best cities for people under 35.

The 25 best cities in the US for people under the age of 35

They have Greenville ranked at no. 9.

Under the Greenville section it states: 'it ranks in the top 20 for young population'

The list goes on.

Not sure why you're opposed to towns with strong college presences?

Boston/Cambridge
Boulder
Austin
Burlington, VT

The fact that most of the things there, especially social life, revolves around 18-22 year old undergrads and a 25 year old would be way out of place there since he is no longer in college.

Maybe, but it's still a viable suggestion.
He likes Greenville; so sue him.
And while you're at it, make yourself productive and actually present some of these 'better options' you're referring to.

Already did, nice of you to chime in when not needed

I never said anything was wrong with Greenville, I actually like Greenville but it's not a "haven" and definitely not the first place a 20 something year old will think of when moving

Ok, I never said it is on every list. Every list has different criteria that they use, and a lot of them have a preference for large cities.

If the OP was set on a large city, wouldn't he or she say so?

There are tons of young people in Greenville. It would be surprising to me if a person making the effort couldn't make friends here.
