How’s the Las Colinas area for a 25 year old with no kids? Is it more for families or is it okay for someone my age? Not looking to be in the city but within a reasonable drive if I need to be there.

Pretty young and hip if you're near Lake Carolyn. Celanese, Wells Fargo (Building large campus), Accenture, and other HQ/regional offices near. Great location for both airports. Near DART if needed. I lived in one of the apartments near the lake, and there are a lot of young professionals or college students.

Totally agree with all of this. 30F, no kids, married, and we love being by the lake. So much entertainment close by! Currently enjoying seeing the Christmas DART pass by every night 🚆🎄

I’m in the lake Carolyn area of Las Colinas - renting a 3 br. Easy commute to downtown (office) and to the airport (client)since it sits in the middle of both. Restaurants and bars in walking distance. Highly recommend

That’s the Lake Carolyn area but if you look at Las Colinas proper/Royal and MacArthur that whole area has a lot to offer. Also depends if you’re the party type but I wasn’t anyway so I loved it when I lived out there. Wish I could move back

I mean, as someone living in the city, reasonable drive to me is within 10 mins. I basically uber everywhere and sold my car. It's awesome. But def depends what you are wanting to pursue (stay home, start a fam, focus on work or go out) mostly.

Las Colinas is definitely safer. Good security and way lower crime than Dallas, which is awful in Dallas if you don’t live in a gated community.

Los Colinas is very family oriented but there are younger people too I think? I mostly see families whenever I’m out there

Born and raised in Las Colinas. It’s a beautiful area that had some highly innovative design back in the 80s. The recent developments, while necessary to bring new life into the area, have gravely missed the mark.

General city planning has been lackluster at best. What could’ve have been a highly, highly convenient and walkable area was overrun by cookie cutter apartment complexes with very little in between. All this was soured by a lack of entertainment and accessibility to basics such as grocery stores.

That being said, Los Colinas remains one of the best places to live if you’re active and want access to nature in the DFW. The nearby trail networks are some of the best, and it’s hard to beat some of the local gyms (e.g. Las Colinas country club, the Four seasons).

I don’t have the desire to ever get married or have kids. I’ve built a good/healthy life for myself - emotionally, physically, financially, and socially. Life continues to get better ever year & I love my family, friends & hobbies. It’s crazy to me that there’s such a negative connotation & disconnect with the fact that people can be fulfilled and whole without marriage or kids. If someone comes along who changes that, I’m open to it. But I’d rather be alone than compromise to fit expectations

Do you think you and your significant other should have similar personalities? My significant other and I are doing long distance and I feel like when I FaceTime with him, I emote more and show interest by asking more questions but from his end, he doesn’t always have a reaction or just nods, and it makes me feel like he’s uninterested. On his end he sees it as he’s comfortable.

My husband has become extremely scatter brained and inattentive to details. He leaves his dishes out after eating, forgets when he turns on the gas/oven, and just forgets a lot more.

I feel like I’m always on duty and am worried about how much worse this will get once kids are in the picture. Anyone else married to a scatterbrain? Ways to deal?

Federal government needs to lift the cap on the dependent care FSA or childcare tax credit if they want people to return to work.
