I was born and raised if the DFW, TX area, and I am interested in trying something new. I want to leave Texas so please no suggestions about other areas in the state. Here's what I'm looking for. I prefer warm weather, but I don't mind rain. Somewhere more sunny than not would be best. I'm a democrat in a bright red state so something more progressive would appeal very much. My net income is around 21000/yr so that's a big factor. I love the desert and appreciate a culture that hasn't been completely railroaded by Walmart, and Malls. I'm spiritual, and interested in alternatives to traditional religion ei(fundamental, evangelical etc) I wouldn't rule out a cold weather place, I just really need the sun shine. So Seattle is probably out. Smaller town, or city doesn't matter except for in matters of finding employment opportunities. If this isn't specific enough please let me know I'm sure I can elaborate more.

When you leave Texas, anywhere you go is a move up

Try this website:

www. find your spot . com

(Sorry for the spaces, it censors it if I put it together).

Take a lot at this website and it will give you 20? of the top places you would probably benefit moving into. Yes it does have questions about politics and could help you find the right location. So check into it and let us know if you need any info about one of the cities that came up.

Good luck : ).

You really narrowed it down that to the south west only. So pick a place in Nevada, New Mexico, or souther California I guess.

Either Southern California (which still gets "cold" weather depending on how you look at it).

Or...Arizona.

The state is like a mix of desert, barren land, and rocky landscapes. Also, it has patches of downtowns that are nice looking because they put up lights. Keep in mind though, the taxi driver told me that the state has the highest concentration of KKK members. Don't know how true that is but that's what he told me. >_> *shrugs*

Default so true

that website is amazing. I was leaning towards New Mexico, and the majority of my results were for that state. Now I'm really interested in Albuquerque or Silver City.

Yeah I was originally thinking Arizona, and when I started looking into it there seemed to me much more negative comments than positive about it. I could be totally wrong, that's just the feel I got.
