Hi, I was trying to relocate thru my current employment and it looks like a dead end. I am thoroughly confused about Ky, I have visited it 3 times now and can't decide between all the beautiful and cheap areas.

But, it looks like I will either have to find someone to rent to me jobless with references or monies up front, or just come in and buy an inexpensive house until I can find employment.

So, hence my dilemna, I have wanted to move for about 8 yrs now and I just need a new start so very badly. It has been so hard to find employment long distance, so it looks like I will have to find housing first.

I am an older single lady, and although I am looking for a place that I will feel comfortable in, and maybe single men and women for friendship, clubs, church groups, or even coffeeshop/bookstores where I can maybe meet people in my own age group.

I have been torn, since I am originally from the midwest, but moved to the south and have fell in love with Ky, and the east and west all has its own charm. Now since I have travelled Ky extensively I am so torn between the cities....They are all so quaint and charming in their own ways.

I am just wondering what areas I would be most likely to fit in, and would be to my interests being the age I am. I like to walk, and bike and hike and just meet people in general and I love being around the water as well. I guess I am more looking to areas on the Ohio river. Oh my,how confused I am!

So far I am thinking.......the north eastern side Maysville and thru to Newport or Henderson area thru to Louisville. Any suggestions from anyone out there that can tell me where someone like me would feel most comfortable in......I guess I love old architecture so Ky is for me, and I would be looking eventually for an old craftsman fixer upper. Like I said I love older historic cities along the river one big enough for jobs and amenities but not so big I have to fight traffic and high real estate woes.

If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate any help!

Milli, you sound like such a sweetheart. Kentucky gentlemen will welcome you with respect and courtesy. (There are a few jerks amonst us, so be careful however). My wife thinks she got lucky. I know that I did in finding her. I doubt if anyone you chat with can give you a more objective view of the state than I can. As a young man, in addition to farming, I helped my parents with their construction business, then I lived and worked in the Henderson/Tri-county areas for 10 years, then spent 10 in one of most architecturally abundant areas of Louisville, and for the past several years, I have called Oldham County home. In addition, I have had a life-long interest in Kentucky history and geography. So, with your 10,000 questions and 120 (county) options, please feel free to personally message me.
