    i'm sure this topic has been done in the past, but i'd like some more personal advice:

    I'm looking at my rapidly approaching graduation date next Spring, and wondering where i want to end up.... i hate the city i'm in for school, and while i love Maryland where i'm from, i want to try something new.... there's nothing limiting me but my own hemming and hawing at moving to a new city, which won't keep me from doing it (i hope)- my question is, what city is YOUR favorite, not just to visit, but to live in?
    consider the cities culture, beauty, diversions (shopping, food, museums), weather, gay population quality, etc.
    i find myself initially drawn to Denver and San Francisco, maybe Boston or Chicago... i like cool weather, larger cities, lots of sunlight, and water- or in Denver's case, mountains....

    looking to tap into some RJ guidance and spark good convo here...

    France, Japan or Canada

    Possibly in that order or maybe Japan, France or Canada..

    It's nothing to do with the gay population or anything, unfortunately I went about things differently, I haven't done much traveling, but, reading, watching, learning I have done, I've love France or Japan for the culture, the people, the food, the life style, getting to immerse my self in new ideals and thoughts and habits of life would be an amazing experience and I think really open me up to more that life has to offer.

    Canada.. well.. I like the cold, I LOVE snow, I've also met LOTS of really wonderfully nice Canadians. Also so many of them are incredibly hot so, there is a gay side to canada icon_biggrin.gif

    Canadian's are obsessed with Aussie accents. There would surely be lots of action waiting for you here.

    I recommend Seattle. Cool weather, great local outdoor activities, beautiful environment, and very laid-back and progressive culture.

    Personally, I love lots of rain and proximity to mountains and water. Plus you would be very close to Victoria, BC which is like a European city in North America.

    If you have the opportunity (time and money) take a road trip and to cities that interest you - call up friends and see if you can crash with them along your way. I think Seattle is a great city.

    But if you want more sunlight, Denver might be for you - Boise also ranks high in my books.

    I would consider Seattle. It seems to have a pretty good mix of people, culture, history. I'm not too crazy about the weather, but I'll survive.

    Didn't realize that Japan, France, and Canada were cities. By chance are you related to Sarah Palin ?

    LMFAO!! I really like your style.

    Last summer, I was at a tea-dance on a sunday afternoon. There were about 100 guys there, and one (1) of them was hot. 6'3" shaved head broad shoulders blue eyes and just sexy as fuck. He looked like Mr. Clean. (LOL)

    Anyway, a bunch of us were talking about how hot the dude was. Against my friend's wishes, who had "called dibs" on him, I approached. He was from Australia. I was in his hotel room exactly 1 hour later. That accent. Yum.

    I am in Paris right now for 2 weeks, nice place, but expensive.

    Lived in both SF and Denver, both are great places, but I think anything in CA is tops. I would look at SF, LA and San Diego. Seattle is nice, but people get depressed there because of lack of sunlight and the rain. I am from Minn, so never want to see another snow flake in my life.

    If it were me, I would vote SF, so Eurpean, good climate, many opportunities to do what you want with your life.

    Good luck

    thanks for some of the advice so far..... i hear a lot of votes for seattle.. my only concern is i hate the rain, which also keeps me from considering London lol. aside from how gray i hear it gets, it sounds like a nice city....

    weather-wise, i know that up North enough, its Winter for much of the year, and down South enough (FL) one can live in near-perpetual Summer... I want to go wherever its perpetual Autumn lol. i just don't like heat and humidity unless on a beach, which i can always travel to- i err towards winter, but: i get seasonal depression if its a dark sunless winter, so i'd prefer it be cold but sunny. any ideas, given all of that?

    i probably won't end up moving to another country out of college, though i'd love to visit some for extended periods...

    That said, I think San Diego or San Francisco would work for you.

    I would do NYC all the way... and someday I may.

    Denver is really nice, too but I like the idea of not needing a car. Denver kind of needs a car.

    Brisbane! Now I know all the haters from Sydney and Melbourne will razz me about how Brisvegas is a backwater and that there's more gay life in either of the other two, but Brisbane has absolutely perfect weather and it's in a beautiful setting. That, plus its only a bit over an hour away from my absolute favorite place----Noosa! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
