Cost of living is relatively high. And in winter you won’t see the sun for weeks. So kinda depressing. And only place I’ve seen that has a volcano evacuation plan. Also isolated from rest of the country. But other than that it’s a wonderful place!!

Grew up in Seattle, strong job market, fastest growing major city in the USA. The most well educated city which shows in the quality of people. The least ghettoest city in the States in my opinion. Our worst neighborhoods are nice neighborhoods in other cities.

It's lovely. I have lived here for 3 years and cannot dream of moving out. On a sunny day (which is rare) , you can see snow capped mountains around the city. 30 min to any hiking spot, lots of lakes , greenery etc. If you love nature, you would love the city

What's taking you there OP? As a Seattle resident, I absolutely love it!

Seattle seems pretty cool if you have a family but if you’re single, I found it extremely boring

My so might move there for a job. And we have completely diff tastes . I love the sun he hates it . So he thinks Seattle wetaher is perfect and I not so much. But home is where the heart is. Just looking out for options now

Also I have zero friends in that city.

Seattle is absolutely amazing. However, if there’s one things it’s not the best for its making new friends. I went to school there and had friends from college, but those that didn’t often complain about the ‘Seattle freeze’ essentially people feeling no need to step outside their existing social circles, which mostly comes from the majority of the population going to school in or around Seattle. Amazon sorta helps with that but it’s limited. Essentially it’s no nyc / sf / dc / la but it’s up there, and even more so if your are outsoorsy what so ever. Experience one summer there and you’ll never want to leave.

I am more a bar/ restaurant kinda person that outdoorsy

Any good neighborhoods for a consultant for a 1 BR around $2100 a month or less? Guessing not.

Well there’s just about unlimited greats restaurants and plenty of solid bars for any age range, but same for most cities. The outdoors being so accessible is what seals the deal.

2100 is on the lower end of new build 1br. Doable tho

2100 for a one bedroom. That's insane. I thought Seattle was cheaper

Hi, I been working for Lloyds Bank for almost 9 years now , I recently attended a interview for Barclays and offered an Senior Business Analyst AVP role in Wealth and private banking area.

Hi everyone, Is £48k a decent salary in London? That's roughly 3k net/month. I'm a 27M, single. I'm thinking of renting a room for 750/800 a month, that leaves me with ~£2100, if I get the Oyster card that's another 150, and for groceries/going out I guess I won't need more than 600/month. That allows me to save ~£1400/month. Am I being too optimistic/unrealistic? Thanks!
