I've said this before and I think I will say it again, there is no reason and I mean no reason for people of either city to be jealous of each other.

Yes Houston has a better skyline (all of them).
Yes Dallas has better mass transit by train.
Yes Houston has a coastal setting.
Yes Dallas has more hills than Houston.
Yes Houston has the best Medical Center in the state.
Yes Dallas has more upscale shopping.

And the list goes on that way...

I have never met one person in real life that has an inferiority complex relating to Houston. Most people here just look at Houston as the other large city in Texas. Most my friends and collegues in Houston look at Dallas the same way.

People in Dallas get worked up over Houston skyline? Perhaps the losers, but again, I have never met anyone who did. The rest of us have things like bills to pay, families to feed, and are too occupied with s**t that actually matters to worry about something that has no bearing over anything. The need for more office space in the center of the city in Houston is greater. People here dont spend much (if any) time thinking about it.

I doubt people in Houston are any different either. I have never met one person in real life down in Houston that gave a crap that DFW was a larger metro area. And they shouldnt care either. Life is hard enough dealing with things that actually matter.

I'm so proud of Houston for becoming 5th. Houston deserves a standing ovation! WELL DONE!

Finally someone makes some sense!

Do you think that the metro will stay at #5 or will it continue to increase?

Who cares? this city doesn't even know what to do with the people we have now, or our traffic/transit problems, still stuck in a small town mentality, which could be good sometimes, but most of the time thats bad when you have 6 million people to deal with. NEways mini rant over.

Not anytime soon.

Chicago is too far away and DFW is growing too fast

It may for the last year, but it will have to do much better than a little to ever catch up with the metroplex. They are ahead by over half a million

Yea this city isn't catching Chi town no time soon and even if it did, it wouldn't catch it for its massive amounts of urban walkable inner city neighborhoods with more character than about most blocks I can think of in houston except maybe a few isolated areas in the inner city. Hate to say it but its true. I dont even know why people want to pass chi town anyways. We couldnt handle another 3 million people no time soon. a big'ol population doesnt mean much really for how urban a city is, or if it feels like a city at all.
