Considering moving back to Lauderdale after a long absence. I went to high school in Lauderdale and know it has changed a lot since then. But I'm in my mid 30s now and wondering what the single life is like for someone my age. Is everyone still a transplant from PA/NY/NJ/MA? I mean no offense, but I've lived in the northeast and know from experience that true southerners (and even people from the midwest) are more my type (which is why I definitely won't be living in Boca, BTW). Anyone else understand what I'm saying and have a constructive comment?

IMHO there aren't many "True Southerners" in S. FL. You need to go up north for that, as contradicting as it sounds.

Yeah its mostly ex-New Yorkers and Latin Americans down here. For Southerners, you have to go up to suburban Orlando and Tampa. Even those cities are mostly transplants. The Deep South doesn't begin until you reach Gainesville and Northern FL cities like Jacksonville and Tallahassee.

Why is Lauderdale "so bad" I guess I'm one of these people thinking about becoming a "transplant" from PA. lol I didn't know that was such an issue in FL but it sounds like if I move down there I'll have more in common with people than I thought.

Nothing crazy about fort lauderdale, you could go to the beach where everyone is at and no one will bother you. Maybe just a few friendly ppl that spark conversation. There is something for everyone, if a particular area or scene is not your style then dont hang around, but fort lauderdale is all around amazing in my opinion.
