I am graduating college and might have an opportunity to move to Pheonix. I am single and wanting any opinions on my possible move.

Phoenix is great for a young single person. However you have not given enough information to determine if the move is right for you. I moved here after college and loved it. I did grow up here, but by the time I came back I moved to a different part of the city and lost all ties to my high school friends so it was pretty much like starting over. Around the Tempe are is great for recient grads. Close to ASU for lots of young activities. I spent alot of time hanging out with other recient grad friends on Mill Ave.

Also consider Scottsdale for a place to live. Lots of great condos, small houses and you are close to some of the best places to hang in the city.

Thanks. For JoePAz, the move might be great for me because of the amount of money that I could be making within the next couple of years. However, I want to be happy where I am. I'm single and like to go out and have drinks. I usually do not have much trouble meeting people, however, I've never moved somewhere that I do not know a soul.

Well, other than learning to spell it right...the Phoenix area used to be a great place for young college grads to start work and buy a nice shack...now most college grads will struggle to buy something decent and rents in nice apartments are pricey...especially in a service industry dominated economy...good luck.

Well, you didn't really say how SOON you might move, so I will just assume a few months or more.


This is what I would do:

1.) If you have never been to Phoenix, you should go in the summer, so you KNOW that you would enjoy living in the desert. I live in MI and I LOVE the summer in AZ, but it is NOT for everybody.



2.) If you don't know anyone there, try to change that. What kinds of interests do you have? Whether it be in your new profession, a hobby, a sport...whatever, I'm sure you could find a local group that has a website and begin conversing with members online. And if they have any meetings or a place they hang out, try and plan your trip around that and stop by and say hello. (I know a man who met his wife online before relocating to NY. He was asking for recomendations for a good veterinarian in his new city. They both had the same breed of dog and chatted for a few months and then they met at a cafe...with both their dogs...when he moved. Now they are married!)


3.) LOTS of people like you are moving to AZ, in fact, I am not sure where you live right NOW, but I would bet that if you went to the board from that city and post a "Anybody else thinking of moving to Phoenix?" thread, you might get some responses from people who live by you right now, wanting to move to AZ, but not knowing anyone. Just think, they might even be really hot! lol! I'm just saying.

Good luck!!
