It’s impossible to give decent advice on a single sentence. Add more details- what lifestyle are you looking for? Do you value space or convenience to Manhattan things/office? Age? Dating/single? Price range? How big an apartment are you looking for?

Wait, I need some advice, too. Should I buy a house?

Yes

Brooklyn

Depends on life stage, preferences/priorities, and income. I’ve lived in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens; Brooklyn is my actual preference, but the additional space I get in Queens makes living here the better option.

Went on a date that was around the corner from the guy’s apartment. We drank a good amount and I was a bit tipsy. It was a little past midnight and he walks home and leaves me on Canal Street.

Yes, I said I would get a cab but it’s also after midnight, freezing cold, I’m tipsy, in heels, etc.

I don’t care if I split a bill but for god’s sake, ensure your date gets in a car home. Even if you aren’t calling her again or whatever, wait for the freaking cab with them.

End rant.
