The Dallas/Fort Worth areas is one of the best places to be right now as we have not been hit very hard economically compared to some areas. I have friends up in the North East and in California who talk about how bad the economy is there, but here it is much better. And believe me, the cost of living is much cheaper here than in most places. You can get a lot more for your money here. I really don't think you will have that hard of a time finding a job. There is a ton of companies here and the whole area here is growing fast. If your boyfriend is in construction and oil field, then he will have no problem either. There is construction going on everywhere here and there is many oil companies drilling in the area since we have the Barnett Shale.

I hope this helps! And if you need anymore info, just ask me and I will be more than willing to help!
Thanks so much for the positive vibes! I will definitely let you know if you can help me with anymore info.

I agree dont listen to loves2read there are a lot of areas in FW that are reasonable and the COL is not bad at all. Myself I want to get as far away from TX as I possibly can After several trips to the New England States my family and I have found a whole different style of life there, almost like stepping back into time. So for us we are trying to do whatever it takes to relocate there. My in-laws live in the Wedgewood area in Fort Worth and if we do stay in TX that is where we plan to buy a house. I don't think you will have any problems finding a job and the big natural gas boom that has hit your fiance will have no problem either. Best of luck to you and your family

Dallas area(Fort Worth) & Houston where voted the 2 Strongest Markets in the USA by the Wall street Journal. We have alot of jobs and creating more everyday. Two many people listen to the news and think they know everything. We have a little thing under us called natural Gas. We get more people moving here to work it then we know what to do with. I personal own a real estate company with 10 agents, we get more leads for folks moving here then we can work in a day. My agent are out showing home every day, They tell me they will have to get help if and when the market changes. I sure hope i get more agents by then, or I will be in trouble. I am interveiwing like crazy trying to find the right folks

I seem to be in a similar situation and I was wondering if you found a good area and how is it working out as far as your job search and everything.
