Nice weather, but no jobs. Boise isn't too far, you should come visit for a long weekend and check it out!

If you're not looking to date, now that you are newly single, I'm sure you will like Eugene. It's a wonderful town in a great location - especially if you like the outdoors and nature. However, if you're a newly single lady looking for potential new fella or fella's to date - I've heard Eugene is a bad place for that. Many a single lady has whined and griped to me about how lucky I was to have been happily married BEFORE I came to Eugene. Evidently it's a hard place to meet good men worth your time with any sense of manners or knowledge of how to treat women. I don't mean to be negative, but it's something to consider.

If you want to meet men - the Seattle/Redmond/Bellevue/Issaquah, WA area would be great for you! LOTS of single eligible men up there. When we lived there I was constantly being asked out by men who owned nice homes and made six digit salaries, who wanted to settle down and start families. It got to where I would make a point of holding my hand so that my wedding ring was always showing. I felt tacky, but I got tired of always being asked out. Microsoft, Boeing, etc. bring them there from other places and they seem a bit desperate for good women up there. I've heard the same about Alaska, too.

Those areas lean more Republican/conservative. If that's your boat you'll like it there. If you lean more independant/liberal you might want to look to Ashland, Eugene, Corvallis, Portland...

There are community college campus scattered along the coast. Personally it would be my dream to plunk myself down on the coast somewhere if finding jobs weren't an issue and access to a community college was my only real need. But that's just me. I love the coast.

The lack of adult socialization and dating opportunities are not gender specific in Eugene. Unless your a young adult, or live where mature single women can be properly approached, there are few opportunities for meaningful interaction. If your not reasonably local to Eugene or willing to make "cold calls" on strangers, as experienced by Mrs. HH, you better like Eugene for its many other assets.
