Sorry, and I do not dislike Phoenix.
I do not think anyone is trying to get you to say anything. Others are simply offering their opinions based on their own personal experiences. Thank goodness everyone is entitled to their own opinions and many will just happen to not agree with yours.

Alameda, CA feels similar to San Diego, with its beach culture and seaside ambiance.

The problem is, the distribution of metro sizes is logmarithic, meaning that as you pick larger and larger cities as a starting point, you have fewer and fewer peer cities to compare it to. San Diego given its size might have one or two peers, most likely Tampa and Phoenix. But even they aren't a perfect comparison.
