As for how SD girls are, my experiences are that they're pretty much laid back and easy to talk to. As long as you don't act like a douche (aka put up a front), most are pretty friendly and will give you the time of day. Plenty of stunners.
As far as other places to live in SD do you recommend any near a college scene? Not necessarily right next to SDSU, but where a college crowd normally hangs out.

@bnewms87 do you go to Tech?

Also, maybe I should rephrase my question. Where do all the SDSU girls hang out at if not on campus.
No I went to Arizona State, but am looking to moving to the PB area

I'm probably getting a rep on here for being the bearer of bad news, but the party scene and the women here will disappoint you greatly, especially coming from GT.

Being a young single male here is quite frankly disappointing, even worse if you aren't well off financially yet. There just aren't enough women in San Diego to go around. When you walk into a bar crowded bar and realize there are just only 5 women...

The women in Atlanta are not more conservative at all. You may be in for a rude surprise. Atlanta is a party town with a great gender ratio. Bars in ATL close an hour or more later than California, for example.

Your commute from PB(where I live) to Poway will probably require you to take medication after a few weeks. There is no real reason to live in PB just to be close to sausage fest bars. You'd probably be much happier living near the 56 freeway and going directly west to Encinatas, etc, to hang out.

I kinda wondered about the guy to girl ratio at the bars considering all the military in the area. Do you think the commute from PB to Chula Vista is bad?

Also why do you live there if it sucks and is full of meat lol?
I have also heard good things around the balboa park area for young adults, any input...

Sorry for stealing your thread pride

It's cool. You and I are seem to be on the same agenda haha. I usually go to Athens GA over Atlanta. (UGA territory).

I'm surprised sHoT by your feedback. Where do all the SDSU girls hang then?

Perhaps if you switched from gay bars to straight bars, the M/F ratio would be better. You might have better luck with the ladies too .... just a suggestion....

Anyone know how the commute from Pacific Beach to downtown SD is?

Considering the price of Gas I started applying for jobs closer to PB.
