IMO your first priority should be your business. What good is living in an area where the women are hot and you can't survive? Get your business off the ground and then go from there.

On a side note, if you do come here, I have mad adversiting/admin asst skills, let me know if you're hiring

Well I'd say there are some pretty stunning women and men in this town. I'm thinking you haven't looked in the right places yet.

There are gorgeous women everywhere. Any large metropolitan area will have a plethora of beautiful women, you just have to look! I don't know where the idea that there are no pretty women in Orlando came from, it couldn't be farther from the truth! Sure, there's plenty of fat and ugly tourists walking around Disney or at I-Drive, but I'd much rather look for women in Orlando than San Antonio (where I lived for 5 yrs, although small towns in Texas have lots of gorgeous girls) If there's a lack of pretty women anywhere in Florida, it would be Cape Coral (my hometown), it is seriously lacking down there. Glad I left

No this isn't a troll. It's a legitimate question, or at the very least it's a guy question lol. I'm happy to see the incredulousness in this thread since it's in my benefit to be proven wrong lol. I wouldn't mind comparisons to other places as there are definitely some places more .. barren than others. In a nutshell from my POV right now , LA has the girls/culture but too expensive to start anything small, San Diego would be a half ass compromise and Orlando imo seems to have a lot going for it except the girls! but it's looking good that you guys are screaming murder on that already

Ive been through most of the major cities in North America as well as some in other countries but when I looked at Orlando online, and yes some of the Disney pics it was shocking. IMO the worst places in North America for singles are Seattle and Vancouver. They both have a cold and stand off-ish culture where Seattle is overpopulated with single guys and '5 or 6's in other cities' that suddenly find themselves a 10 in Seattle, while Vancouver can easily boast many of the hottest girls in North America there are MANY singles not connecting from the superficial/shallow, cold and unfriendly culture. Few true friends let alone relationships kinda deal.

As for the business, game dev is mostly a lot of work, endless overtime and often quite solitary so it can get even more lonely if the city itself is not accomodating. Lets keep it to the girls, and not derail tho. This is a *living* question, not a business one. I could almost do this anywhere and hire from anywhere but it's nice to have a strong local base too.

However the one gotcha is that when I do look at sites like POF and OkCupid, just finding someone somewhat attractive is an "OMG" moment. I also found another article that said that even the Magic cheerleaders aren't hot at all.

My other choices are San Diego and LA. Hotness is not 100% the factor but still.. pickings seem to be very slim. While Miami is nearby, it doesnt strike as a place where the women are particularly nerd friendly lol. San Diego would otherwise be the best compromise but lacks Orlando's film/video game focus.

This is pretty much the only dealbreaker factor, otherwise from an entrepreneurial pt of view, Orlando is a slam dunk. I will visit in August or as soon as I can, but until then, what do you guys think? lol
Beauty is (and always has been) in the eye of the beholder. Deciding based on something so shallow is not a good idea.

LOL
I lived in Vancouver for 11 years it doesn't have the hottest women in north america. Not even close, to say so is hilarious in fact one of the many reasons why I left is how plain, bland and amish they all are.It didn't have an obesity problem, but it's plain jane central up there. Don't get me started on the attitude.it's only a couple hours north of seattle, the culture and lookswise are very similar. I doubt you have spent allot of time in Vancouver, if you had you wouldn't have said that, still it was good for a laugh. I am in Orlando now, and the women are much better here, One thing I notice is that they look allot less trashy here

Wow. Doesn't every place have it's share of pretty and ugly women? How many do you need? Sheesh. I was gonna say that you only need one, but then realized that I might have a different perspective on life.

It's just like any other city, hot girls will be hot, ugly ones will be ugly. The host sounds like he doesn't see much action though.
