Hey folks,

I am at a stage in life where I am looking for a place to settle down. I am an older single male and thinking of moving to Oklahoma City. I used to live in Edmond, Ok back in the 80's and liked it.

How does Oklahoma City view single males? How is the dating life there? Someday I would like to be married, buy a house and settle. The great appeal to OKC is the low cost of living, decent job market in sales. It has been a while since I have been back. I love the wide open spaces, country lifestyle, and fresh clean air. I cant remember but is it dusty there?

I am also considering moving back to Chicago, Ill since it is home. I know the area well, my dating life would be outstanding, but the cost of living is too high. Many people moving out even though Chicago is a great city.

Not sure which city to choose? Can anyone tell me about Oklahoma City these days?

I think you'll like OKC, I really like it here. I'm a single male and don't get viewed at differently than anybody else. The city itself is not dusty, but rarely dust blows in from the west from strong fronts. OKC has grown by about 10,000 people every year since 2010, and the metro as a whole has grown by about 20,000 people every year. The economy here is strong and diversified; despite the recent oil slump, the unemployment rate of the metro has remained below the national average. There's lots of activity downtown now, along with a growing core and a good deal of construction and developments.
