stagnant is an understatement. it is NON EXISTENT as far as i have experienced! but hey, if the OP aint interested in ever having a romantic relationship, getting remarried etc, or dating casually, she might be satisfied. from the newcomers that i have met around here, after the "newness" of the area wears off, there is very little to keep them here. think about it...the pay is higher here than probably most any area/region of Texas for RN's, but every hospital in the greater Corpus Christi area is suffering critical shortages, and very few out of state folks taking the "bait" of large sign on bonuses (i was one of the very few "fools" who sold my soul, but i was under the impression that Texas is Texas-HA! boy was i wrong). i can almost say that Savannah GA offered a better quality of life, and i HATED Georgia and couldnt wait to get back to Texas. i am thankful to be back in Texas before my TX DL expired-because my Texas pride wouldnt allow me to get a GA DL-but i wish i had not taken this little "detour". i look forward to moving to the Texas that I am familiar with-the areas of Texas that are quintessential Texas....the things we romanticize about when we have visions of Texas.

I moved to Houston and the options were endless

Putting your info into Yetti's Tx city compatability computer... I came out with the following list.... Austin, Corpus, Galveston, Victoria, and San Antone. Hope this helps! What is SWF?

I have been researching different areas, states, cities using criteria such as housing affordability, safety, job outlook, taxes, government, growth potential. I like the South, I love the West, the Eastern and Northern states were not a consideration. I prefer a small to mid-size city, but will consider a large metropolitan area.

Maybe I am wrong or interpreting the data incorrectly, but it seems as though a lot of Texas cities might be a well-kept secret, they kept popping up in a lot of my searches. I didn't even consider Texas until I was forced to really look at this data and I realized the Lone Star State might very well be the place for me!

I have narrowed my search to the following cities:

Arlington/Fort Worth
Beaumont/Port Arthur
Corpus Christi/Portland
Galveston/Texas City*
El Paso?
San Angelo
San Antonio

there are a couple of other cities, but the above seem to interest me the most. I am in my 40's, have a college degree, 15 years in healthcare field, job longevity/stability..........so I don't worry to much about finding employment. I want to find the right city, near the beach, home comparable to the one I own (your real estate seems quite affordable), decent job.

What can you tell me about Texas? I just might become a CowGirl.

I live in CC and have posted on here about CC in recent months--mostly in answer to questions like yours. If you search for recent Corpus Christi posts you'll turn up a lot of information, or at least a lot of my opinions on CC-related stuff. I'd be happy to answer any additional questions you have, either here or via PM.

In a nutshell, I think CC is a pretty good place to live. The single 30- and 40-ish women I know seem to have fairly active social lives. I guess it depends on what you're looking for.

Victoria is a great town, however the main complaints i have heard are nothing to do and no social life. it deserves further researching!
