I’m 26 and feel like I’m missing out by not living in a city (can’t date or make friends where I’m at, literally middle of nowhere). Thoughts on sacrificing the next two years of my social life and saving money OR moving out to a city and burning through an extra $30K in expense per year ($60K in total)? I have the money just not sure if it’s worth it…

Youre the only one that knows this platform. You’re working right?”
