    So I am moving to Omaha in January for about 6 months or so.

    To be honest I am scared to death about this. I'm going for work, but I am going go use it as a time to find myself and re-align my self with reality. The last year of my live has been pretty rocky (my own doing). Relationships have been non existent.

    I am going to fufill some contracts that my dad has secured. The main reason for going is because of the financial implications.

    Any one have any advice about boys from the midwest? Ive lived in New Mexico till I was 19 and then in Phoenix for the past 10 years. This is a step out of my box and comfort zone.

    Any advice?

    Did the re-aligning thing…prolong visit to Ohio.

    Went back to school and concentrated on myself; consequently met my partner.

    Good Luck !

    The only things that come out of Omaha are steers and queers. Good luck and be safe in your travel!

    Apparently a few queers get into Omaha every now and again too. icon_lol.gif

    Edit to add: to the OP - it's cold as hell there, but it's not too bad a town overall. Good luck.

    I think Omaha isn't bad, just alot colder than where I'd want to live.

    You will either like it or hate it. If you have to have something going on all the time to be satisfied, you'll hate the place. Also the bars close earlier, if you frequent bars, you'll have to go to Council Bluffs, where they stay open later.

    If you aren't into that scene, you might find some interesting things if you just look. Nebraska isn't that bad (well sorta)..

    jprichva saidAdvice? Sure. Leave your poisonous personality out west and try to develop into a good-natured human.

    You just dont know how wonderful I am.

    Omaha has a surprisingly active gay scene. One of my favorite gay clubs in the entire US, and one of the most beautiful, is in downtown Omaha:

    The MAX

    Many of us fear change and the unknown.
    There's some reason that you're supposed to go there.
    We all go to where we're supposed to be.
    You will learn something new there, and meet some new people, that will somehow change your life.
    Maybe you'll even love it enough to move there.
    Try to keep an open mind, and give it a chance.

    I would love to read an update when the 6 months are over.
    I'll bet you'll say, "What was I so scared of ?"

    With good reason. Don't fail to check it out. Also right around the corner, with more of a western flavor than the urbane feel of The MAX, is this place, founded by the same gay couple, that carries the nickname of one of them:

    DC's

    Just watch out for those Scandinavian Lutheran Midwestern boys. They make a great pot of coffee, but are nothing but trouble!

    Omaha is supposed to be wonderful - I'm visiting for work coming up soon and can't wait. Nothing will irritate them (justifiably, I might add) more than an attitude of, "Oh *Gawd*, I have to be here. This sucks, waaaaaah. I'm going home as soon as I can." And let me tell you, I've spent time in Arizona, and despite there being some very attractive men there, I'm going to have to admit it's on my "avoid as much as possible" list.

    From a guy who has had to move a few times for work for the short term, enjoy the move. There are always positives and negatives in any place. If you look for the positive you will find it or if you look for the negative you will find it. Everywhere i have gone i have met great people and found some great things. I have always taken it as an adventure, not as a short term sentence and it has always been a great experience!

    Hope that helps.

    Well, it's a big state. It really depends on where you're gonna be. Northern Virginia has Tyson's Corner, southern Virginia has rednecks.
