Hello, I am a 25 yr old single guy. Wondering what everyone thinks is the best city to go to meet nice girls. Girls in the northeast are TERRIBLE. So stuck-up and mean. I live outside of Philly now and I am hoping to move in the next year or two. I would like to go somewhere with nice people, good weather, good job prospects, relatively affordable with low crime. Some areas I am considering are Texas, Colorado, Georgia, and Tennessee. I have heard that Austin, Denver, and Nashville are nice, although I have heard mixed things about Atlanta. I am also considering going to Indiana, even though the weather there is terrible. I visited Indiana this spring and the people are so nice there. Totally different from the rude people in the northeast.

Don't get me wrong, for everyone who likes Philly, Boston, or NY, they are great cities for some people. Lots of things to do, great food, lots of history. But I am more of an outdoors person... I like biking and hiking. There is not much green in these big cities.

Just wondering what everyone thinks is the best city to meet nice people. So far, i would have to say the nicest people I have met were in Mississippi when I did a service trip to help the Gulf Coast rebuild from Hurricane Katrina, and in Indiana, on a trip with my friend.

You want to move some place where a lot of new people are moving in. It will make it easier to meet women and people just in general. If you want to meet more open women move out west. When I was at the U of Hawaii I had girls(mostly cali girls) come up and talk to me if they were interested which never happens here in alabama. Had several of these girls just give me their phone number without me asking either. From my experience, here in the south not only will you have to approach the girl but you'll have to carry the whole conversation as well(and you can forget about them just giving you their number, you'll have to ask). Anyways, I'd recommend staying way from the south. Most of the girls don't seem interested in meeting new people and only want to hang with the same cliques they grew up with. As far as nice girls, I've lived in 11 different states and for the most part a good majority of women have bad attitudes(I bet this will get me flamed lol). It seems disproportionately so where I live now.

I've noted the women in Indiana and Ohio are pretty friendly without being over bearing or too unladylike. Colorado also seems good. If you think the women in the Northeast are bad you should try out the Kansas City area. It's worse here. I've actually had women here tell me they don't want to go out with me even though I am not asking them out. They think they are higher up on the food chain than I and they most definitely are not. They are first class jerks in the Kansas City area.

Any place that has an influx of people from other regions of the country and world should be a good place to meet people. As one poster noted in an other string, when in Colorado people he didn't know would simply walk up to him in a store or on a sidewalk and start up a conversation. I've had similar experiences in the Denver area and noted the people to be pretty friendly. Even Minnesota and to a lesser extent Wisconsin offered similar experiences for me though that does seem to contradict the alleged aloofness that others have experienced in Minnesota.

That's because we can spot a loser a mile away.

Not you, of course. ::cough::

As for the city with the "nicest" girls, why don't you try St. Petersburg? Russia not Florida. And be sure to bring lots of money.

In all seriousness, that might be a good idea. A dating service. I've never used one but I know people that have and they're found suitable women through the service. Also, the Russian and Asian mail order route might be a good possibility. There are plenty of down to earth Asian gals that are willing to move to America just to find a decent guy for a long term relationship or marriage and money in most cases will not be an issue. Some of the Russian women are gold diggers though and you have to be more careful when screening them.

Torresdale. I'm from Connecticut and while I never have had any trouble meeting or finding women to date in the Northeast I can fully understand where the OP is coming from. Just because he's run into some shallow jerks does not mean he's a loser. More than likely he's just looking in the wrong places.

I just had another idea for the OP. Even though I've really only dated women from wealthy families and backgrounds in the Northeast one thing I've noted while traveling and living in other parts of the country is that girls that work in retail or restaurants seem to be the nicest and friendliest girls that I run into. Most like to talk and are eager to please! Even here in the Kansas City area I've found a few of these women to be pretty down to earth and enjoyable to talk to. Have you tried talking to any of the girls that work behind the counter of a convenience store or restaurant while you are engaged in your transaction?

When I visited a girl from my high school class that was attending the Univ. of Georgia in Athens I noted her friends were very friendly and pleasant! Good choice.

Don't even get me started on Kansas City. I have found many to be quite snobby, especially in Johnson County. They are far more concerned with making a lot of money and spending time in their own clique. I have found that the people overall tend to be quite friendly and reserved in NH by comparison.

I would say boston has the nicest girls because they are all in college. And the older you get, they stay the same age.

In my experiences: Atlanta, Cincinnati, Arlington/Ft. Worth, Seattle, Oklahoma (well, the state overall, including the cities)

The OP is right, there seems to be more "bad attitude laden" women than those with good attitudes in general.

Here in Kentucky, there too is a disproportionate amount, and it doesn't matter if I meet them at work, church, school, whatever. Talk about hardly smiling, having random snapping outbursts, standing you up, and the like. Of the phone numbers I've received in the last five years, 2/3 have been from girls who were not Ky. natives. Seriously. If you're looking for nice girls, don't come to Ky., especially Lexington.
