    The west side is a pretty solid “pocket” from the Medical Center up to Garden Oaks.
    It's more like a tunnel and it illustrates the point. The ghetto to the north and north east of there is still vast and entrenched. It's culturally isolated where they speak very differently than any area around it. Houston is a unique US city.

    DFW is quite a boring place to live. You have a decent six flags, top golfs, golf courses, Main Event's (which is fun even as a young adult, not just for teens) and are within driving distance of a couple casinos just on the Oklahoma side. That's about it. It's landlocked, hot, continental, humid, nothing interesting outdoorsy like lakes or mountains or beaches.

    As far as the jobs go, yeah they've been a lot less selective since covid and more willing to hire tier candidates if it means they can pay them half as much.
    Main Event
    driving hours to a casino

    goddamn that sh1t is 100% true and just depressing to read tbh. I guess it really
    is just seeing eating more and more at fancy restaurants, drowning yourself in alcohol, Toyota Music factory , and seeing whatever the latest Jewish Avengers movie bread and circus imho. Sounds amazing

    OP, let's trade Apartments
    OP lives in a house in northwest Montana. He hasn't lived in DFW in years.

    I just hope he and the other soft voters of MT vote against Jon Tester in next year's senate election. That fat dude may not be THE problem, but he's a key cog in the problem. Don't let his fake "centrist" appeal sway them like in the past 3 times he's been up for election. He's absolutely 100% a part of the problem in the US and votes the wrong way on almost every single important issue on the federal level that is against the will of the vast majority of Montanans. Jon Tester does NOT represent Montana.

    I've lived in most of the major cities and never had any issue finding things to do. Of course I have friends.

    I see old man crying as he walk into a Marvel movie listening to the Jazz Festival or any of the other hundreds of events put on in major cities every year.

    Hungary seems like one of the best places to live in Europe. Do at least half of people speak decent English?

    It's called realism, smarty pants.

    Texas is boring, expensive, hot as , humid, and full.

    Move to a different state. Travel wise there isn't much to see. Take a selfie with The Alamo. The JFK Memorial. The State Capitol, if you're going at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning when there's lighter traffic. HEB, Bucee's if you want. Go to both six flags parks, they are each worth a visit... Sea World San Antonio is just okay, and not nearly as good as the one in Orlando. Not much else to do compared to other states.

    Neither have I. Actually had great times both in DFW and Houston. I've already laid out the blueprint on this site and how to make the most of living in big cities as a young adult.

    Point I'm making is that neither city has anything unique about them that you can't do anywhere else. And like you said, DFW has an "arrogant" culture that is very real, and as someone who has traveled all over the country, I was surprised not to find any other city that has that even comes close to the " bag" level. and both cities are getting more and more ghetto tbh

    never said i disagreed with all the garbage you posted and not even defending hole texas

    but im old and dont need to “entertain” myself by seeking out picturesque places and when i do- i travel to beautiful places like california, northwest usa, hawaii, etc…

    if the OP is still young, texas probably will be boring

    the west coast is gorgeous if you are young and looking for the ultimate playground

    if you watch faux news
    1) you are an idiot
    2) you will think cali is a cesspool because
    3) you are an idiot who watches faux news

    California's problems are mainly that it's expensive and full of hoboes and illegals who settle there because the weather is nice and such.

    I drove through south central LA in August 9, 2021 and actually saw, with my own two eyes, tents full of savage families under all of the bridges and even in the myriad construction zones on the sides of major thoroughfare roads in the sun in broad ass daylight. No, they weren't armed and trying to shoot at my car, but it was still a traumatic experience. The government needs to defund Ukraine and start building housing projects out in the desert on BLM-owned land to place all these people, get the hoboes off the streets and transform them from savagery to civilized.

    yeah yeah… perspective…

    i lived in l.a. for 20 years and saw the same and here is what you are missing:

    i NEVER drove back or had to deal with any of that in my EVERYDAY life…just like i dont drive under austin overpasses near downtown too ing often either

    i actually spent years in hollyweird and saw homeless every day, was approached by them every day, was asked for money everyday and dealt with the issues in a myriad of ways including at times ignoring them

    i also traveled all over that state and witnessed gorgeous gorgeous places , mountains, beaches, forests, deserts, and found paradise among the vastness

    still is the most beautiful state in the country despite faux news agenda

    i always remember thinking to myself when i had had an eventful day where i navigated amongst paradise to the holes back to paradise and thinking: “man, i love this ing place- it has the absolute BEST and the absolute WORST of everything….


    but keep swallowing faux channel propaganda and stay away as i am sure california and its people will be better off without you cultists

You have a decent six flags, top golfs, golf courses, Main Event's (which is fun even as a young adult, not just for teens) and are within driving distance of a couple casinos just on the Oklahoma side. That's about it. It's landlocked, hot, continental, humid, nothing interesting outdoorsy like lakes or mountains or beaches.
    This is such an oddly specific group of "places to go" in DFW, like are you a grown ass man who just wants to go to adult Chuck E Cheese all the time?

    Most Texas cities are landlocked and flat, but DFW has plenty of decent lakes if that's your thing. Growing up in Houston I got more than my fair share of Galveston and its brown muddy beaches, I'd rather be on a boat on Lake Lewisville at this point.

    I'd never put DFW on a list of best places to live in the world... but if we're talking Texas only, I can't think of anything I need from a home city that I could get in another Texas city and not DFW. It's way less humid than the other cities, you've got teams for all of the major 4 pro sports, you've got like 10 concert venues in the area that bring good bands, a great and broad selection of food options (you can find a great restaurant for any kind of food you're looking for), art, theater, a major international airport with as many direct flights to as many destinations as you're going to get anywhere else, a ton of corporate headquarters, and it's got a better rail system than any other TX city (even though it's still pretty ty compared to cities that got this right a long time ago).

    I wish Dallas had better public transportation, less heat, and mountains... But again, you're not going to find those things in any other TX city either.

    Except for the 50 times a year the tornado sirens go off and the watermelon sized hail that comes with it. One severe storm can wipe out what took you to build the previous 15yrs. I know because I lived there. Hated it.

    This is really the key to being happy wherever you live. No one really does the touristy stuff in their own city anyway. There's good social pockets in probably every city. People in the Lakewood/Lake Highlands area of Dallas are more my vibe, you don't have to deal with as much of the Dallas baggery if you steer clear of places like Uptown, or Legacy in Plano.

    Rather deal with hail than flooding from hurricanes tbh. Only time I got bad hail, it got me a brand new roof. Score!

    Tornados scare the ing out of me. I still remember when one passed over my house when I was a kid and we were all huddled up in the hallway with all the doors closed and I felt all the air rushing out of every room from under the doors into the hallway and up through the attic and thinking well I guess I'm dying here. But luckily it just only took off a bunch of roof shingles, shot a big burst of hail through a window, and tore up a tree in my front yard, though it did a neighbor across the alley from me pretty badly.

    I think CA is a great place to visit if you know where to go and where not to go. You can hack it and use the left wing policy to your advantage to do stuff for cheap there and it's not hot at night year round and humid like TX and places in the east half of the country. use temperature to your advantage, stay nights in your car at a nice upscale park in hidden locations, they're all over just not in the uber populated areas. One issue I found out in person about CA is the lack of 4G cell reception in non urban/suburban areas, though.

    Adult chuck e cheese >>>>>> ty bars, lowlifes, drunks, smoker, potential for getting shot imo

    I lived near Lake Lewisville. It's ok. Nothing special. Some decent hunting in the forests surrounding it in November. Full of bugs from April to mid October.

    DFW is like the Atlanta or LA of the center part of the country. Very much urban and suburban sprawl. Takes way too long to drive from one side of the metro to the other. Lots of options for everything but like you said it's not some great destination and the weather sucks for the most part outside of like December to February. And from December to February, if there is an inch of snow in DFW once every ten years... you lose power and water for a week.

    Even if it was inexpensive and not full of the social negatives, I probably wouldn't settle in California for the simple reason of geological flaws. Don't want my mansion to burn down, fall down in a mudslide, or break in pieces due to an earthquake. I value immortality and want to settle somewhere where I can reasonably live forever.
