Wow you are a rare one. I live in nearby Portland and I hate it but I hate Seattle even more. I think it's literally the worst city I can imagine. It's even worse weather than Portland which is unreal, and somehow (?!?) it's even more expensive which is hard to believe because Portland has gotten ludicrous especially housing. Oh and it's often worst traffic in the entire US and again Portland traffic is atrocious now. I lived in Los Angeles too and the housing prices here aren't much better anymore and the traffic isn't either. But at least LA had great weather and lots to do. The ONLY win for Seattle is no state income tax but that's almost made up for by the horrible city taxes and even more liberal culture than Portland (HOW is this possible?!).

And Seattle more to do than Vegas Hahahaha that's a good one dude! There's only one depresssing city in this comparison and that's Seattle. Vegas is darn near the perfect city.

Not to hurt anyones feelings on this forum but i actuallly hate las vegas as a place to live as i find it depressing.

Im very very happy living in seattle.
You have good friends where you are, you should stay. 10k/month people moving into Seattle metro will make the rent situation even worse before it gets better. I'd buy a place if I were you.

The only places that's going to give you any advantage is in LA nor NYC. And NYC is even more expensive than LA (although you won't need a car.)

Take a boot camp in video game programming. That might mix with your degree and give you a career.

Vegas is a city where careers are built on social interactions (given the overwhelming dominance of the hospitality industry.) Aspergers will work against you in a lot of the jobs in Vegas.. For programming it would probably work for you.

I would just drop the idea of moving to Vegas.

This says it all right here. You're not going to be happy here. Don't move here. I say live in a place that makes you happy. Make it work. Moving here, you'll be miserable and will soon regret it.

You're going to have to give up something to continue living in a city you clearly love to live in. In Phoenix they call it "Drive till you can afford it" suburbs. Yes, you'll have to get a car, insurance etc. But those are the costs of continuing to live in a city that you enjoy living in.

Sorry, but sometimes there are no easy answers in life. You just have to roll with it.

There are a lot of service jobs you can get into in LV OP, get the food and booze cards. The transition from call center type jobs to customer service type jobs in Vegas should be pretty easy.

Actually Las Vegas has a lot of opportunities for people with RTF degrees because of the entertainment industry there. It kind of where LA spills over too with that in the hotel casino acts and some performers residencies. There's like two or three main production companies there that you want to apply with that has regular work at the hotel casinos for shows. Then the hotel casinos also have in house jobs for weddings and conferences which is separate. Then there are some listings for PAs through the Nevada Film Office and it's a great place to network with several film festival circuits in Las Vegas.

You could potentially get a better paying job in Las Vegas doing production at 15hr in Las Vegas to start. That's just operating cameras at shows and setting up and striking equipment. Also for the TV and Radio broadcasting its market 40. Seattle-Tacoma is in the top 15. It's easier to break into a lower market but Las Vegas is still in a Top 50 market. It not Top 10 but it's not in the 100's either. Depending on what level you're coming in at and school connections you may be able to break into Las Vegas in Radio or TV easier than Seattle as a beginner outside of school. School experience counts too and any awards.

Since the rating markets are based off of population that also means unfortunately that there won't be as many medical resources available. I know there's a good autism support group for families but I'm not certain what resources they have for asperger's in Las Vegas. You'll want to research that before starting off new some place if it's important to you.

Seattle has an established medical school and medical community. That brings people from all over the North Western region with their WWAMI program. Las Vegas is in the process of building a bigger and better one. It's like 48th or 49th in the country of doctors per capita. Where it should be in the Thousands of Doctors per captia it's in the Hundreds. The Doctors are good that they have but Nevada really needs more doctors overall. So people often say on here they fly to California for treatment. You'll likely have a better experience with medical care in WA.

Now dating scene for a single male in his 30's I'd absolutely pick Las Vegas for the babes alone.

Just saying.

I'm a married woman for over ten years so what do I really know about the single male dating scene anyways? I just think there's more and better opportunity for that down south than I've seen up north anyhow knowing both the different cultures. It's definitely a culture shock too coming from the PNW to the desert southwest.
