    You think NYC will solve your problem? This isn't Sex and the City: the gay version, ya know?

    Sure living in a big city has its perks but sometimes it's worse. My friends who live in Manhattan tell me that even though they are surrounded by people, they feel lonelier than ever. icon_cry.gif

    Don't get me wrong. NYC is great. But you should want to move there for the right reasons.

    Well maybe if you looked beyond just 'damn cute' White guys and paid attention to some of the other plethora of hot guys down there then maybe lonely wouldn't be an issue. Find some good Latino friends down there and guarantee you will be invited to a party most EVERY weekend.

    FYI, Miami is considered the 6th borough...and replicates NY to some degree. However, I did experience some lonely times there as well but they were very temporary and the opportunity to just go out and meet someone, anyone...is very real. I have yet to go to a city where you can actually meet someone on the way to the club, fuck them...and then go back to the club at 230 am and drink for another 3 hours. Here in Denver it's lights on at 130. What the FUCK?

    I find miami/ south fl very much like the nyc metro area in many respects... if you 'feel alone' there it probably wont be different for you in nyc

    A good point actually.

    I made a really good friend that used to live in nyc. He ended up in a ldr with a guy from atlanta cuz he couldnt find what he was looking for there I guess. Guys are the same every where you go I think. The bigger cities do have more to offer like Miami & nyc. Try living in fucking rural va where the nearest gay bar is an hour away & everyone is a bible thumping homophobe.

    No one is alone in NYC. Think of a big family of 8 million people. I guess we could use one more member in our family...When are you arriving? We'll wait for you at JFK.

    Guess what - you're not alone! In a recent poll half of all young people in America wanted to move to NYC. Even though your problems may follow you there must be something to it.

    .....NYC is overrated.

    I know. I've been living here since I was 18.

    I still remember living in Montana and driving four hours to hit up AmVets, the closest thing we had to a gay bar (The owner of the American Veteran's bar liked our money). And we liked it!

    ugh why would you want to move to nyc? especially since you're in miami.

    you would think it's easier to meet people with a bigger city, but it tends to be the opposite. NYC, LA and SF tend to attract and is a melting pot of the biggest douches around.

    WTH dude. Don't make that kind of insensitive over-generalizations. We city-dwellers just don't have time to deal with retarded people with IQ less than 70, or ugly people. That doesn't make us douches.

    I lived in NYC from '03-06, having moved from L.A. New York is a really expensive place to live. And I found it really tough to develop friendships there. Having grown up in California, the weather was the toughest thing to adjust to: Winters with snow and cold and Summers of heat and humidity. I'm glad I experienced living in NYC, and it's a great place to visit, but you really need to know what you're getting into before you move there.

    I can understand not wanting to feel alone and finding a larger gay community, but you might want to find a more reasonable place to move to before moving to NYC.

    Remember to, there are tons of people in Miami from NYC. As a matter of fact, most of the people there that I developed good friends/relations with were from NYC. I didn't really get along with Florida people that much LOL.

    But truth be told, I don't blame you for wanting to move out there. Especially when the oppurtunity to present itself is there, and the image that NYC gives that you can be anybody you want, have access to whatever you need to make your dreams come true. That's what Cazwell said LOL.

    Even though Miami 'seems' like NYC, they usually refer to the 'small' strip of South Beach. Rest of Miami is just as country and Strip Malled up as the rest of Florida LOL.

    No, but I been to Boston LOL. So Rhode Island? Hmmm....Wait, no that's Providence what am I thinking. But that's way out there. Sounds like Key West.

    NYC-- where there is someone hotter around every corner!

    I've heard it can be great, but not if you're hoping to find something long lasting (not to say it can't or doesn't happen).

    Thanks for confirming the existing stereotypes about NY and LA.

    I'd love to hear your definition of a douche.

    Try Chicago. I know its not a coast (OMG where is that? There's cities outside ca and ny?) but it's a good practice NYC. This way you can test the weather and have a fairly large gay community without throwing away your savings in the first two months. I, too, want to do NYC but the jobs right now are ridiculous in my field so I'm waiting it out for economic change. Hopefully It happens before I'm 40.

    NYC isn't for everyone, but it might be for you arronarron. Many people told me NYC wasn't for me. I moved anyway and love it here. People will try to convince you to stay and you can stay if you want to settle. But if you want to risk change and usurp your ennui I'd suggest you move to New York, or any other city outside of Florida.

    I don't think you can handle it. It's for your own good that I don't tell you. icon_wink.gif something's better left unsaid. icon_sad.gif. I didn't mean to come off like a bitch in my previous post! If I did it's not my intention. icon_sad.gif. In my own defense if I wanted to be real bitchy there are much meaner things I could have said.

    I have to disagree...

    I went to Chicago and I did not feel all that much of a New York vibe. Chicago seemed very blue collar, hard-working, 1 brown brick building after the next. It also seemed kinda slower pace than east coast. New York is FAST. I don't think it'd be practice of NYC. Chicago is midwest, NYC is northeast...Chicago is 70+ miles from SE to NE while New York is 18 million in a much smaller radius. The similarities are just not there. So therefore one cannot actually practice New York in Chicago.

    You can easily blow thru your savings in 1 night in Miami LOL. But you can buy clothes on the cheap so it almost evens out. In Miami, you can spend $20 on a shirt and look like a million bucks...Ditto in New York.
