I liked it for cheap housing but now that’s a wash

Affordable, tons of space, kind people, nice airport.

Not really. Super cheap and great for starting a career and traveling but terrible for my hobbies of surfing, snowboarding, mtn biking etc and meeting like minded folks. Came here for school at SMU and been here 8 years...stockpiled a ton of cash, paid off student loans, bought a super car, traveled overseas a ton, but can't manage to find my groove here. Might be time for me to bite the 10% tax bullet (25K for me) and move to SoCal (can you tell, haha)

I like it because there are great options for food (especially Asian food), easy access to things, and lots of indoor activities. However, the heat is a pain in the ass and then those people flooding here from cali and ny

Used to live in Dallas until I moved to the Bay Area. I miss Dallas’s space, miss the big houses with big lawns and wooden flooring!

I love it here!
Life got easier once I moved here. Slower pace, people are nice, I live in a very diverse and safe neighborhood. Variety of food options is great. Always things to do (concerts, sports events.. ). I like the weather, don’t mind the heat at all.

I moved here from west texas. While there might be some things that could change I am much happier here than I was there.

I have only been here for about a year so I still don’t really know anyone. And all my friends and family are still in WTX, however my mental health is so much better here that I’m ok with the slow going of making friends.

I moved lol- just a lot of bars and eating out

So you just got out of Dallas? I'm moving in for work lol

I like it. For kids and housing. Good neighborhood and school

Moved here to be with my ex and didn’t care about the place then. But now I’m trying to move back. Not a fan of the winters here.

Right! Nothing compared to last years

It’s ok for six months of the year

Travel around a bit and you’ll realize dallas is really worth it for value

I hate Dallas. But I'm too lazy to move.

I have 1 one year old and have told my husband that I want to get divorced. He is being immature about the process and is just trying to make everything difficult. Sometimes he says he will move out, then he says the baby and I should, sometimes he says he wants custody when the real reason im leaving is his lack of interest amd resppnsibility toward our family. I can tell he is hurt and is upset that i dont love him anymore and want to get everything ready to make the exit easy. How do I start?

When I started at a big advertising agency 12 years ago, every young single person was dating someone from the agency. Some of them grew into serious relationships and one of them got married.

I think it’s wrong to forbid romantic relationships at work. What does everybody else think?
