Please vote. For the 20-34 year old singles out there, in your experience, which city did you feel was the most successful in deciding to move to alone. Whether you moved for a job, voluntarily, for the weather or for family, here are some factors to consider:

The ease of transition, your ability to meet new people and create strong relationships, dating, housing, jobs, livability, costs; even a place you felt you could put roots down, etc.

Gmagg I did not see a poll but there is SOOOO much variability in that age group that it would be hard to pinpoint a single area. For instance in many of the mid-western and southern states couples start having children at a younger (early 20s) age and so housing costs, schools, etc. may be most important to them. In more urban areas, you will often find many women not having her first child until her late 20s or early 30s so until that point living in a condo right in the heart of the city may be what they are looking for. I would say (just to name off the top of my head) areas that I would think of for that demographic (which I am in ) NYC, Atlanta, Charlotte, LA, San Diego, Seattle, Austin, Dallas/Arlington, D.C. metro area, Denver, Raleigh.
