Re: Quality of Life: Cheyenne, Wyoming
It all begins with what an individual expects and wants out of life; but, for me, Cheyenne, Wyoming is a dreadful, depressing place to live. I am single, and have generally lived in larger cities where with your free time there are venues--beaches, swimming pools, nightclubs, coffee shops--where any single person can go and be certain that he can meet someone spontaneously and have fun. In Cheyenne, no such concept exists. The bars attract the same people, there is literally no man meets woman dynamic; people go to bars, get drunk, and talk to the people they came there with or already no. As a siongle man you will not sit back jealous at other men picking up women and you cannot: no one is meeting women spontaneously and publicly in this town. All people do is go to bars or out to eat, and they meet people at work or church or wherever, but not spontaneously in vibrant social environments like a beach or urban nightclub. WOrse, the number of single women is not only the lowest anywhere, when you meet one they are the least sophisticated and dumbest. But, to be honest and scientific, the number of single women that you meet, who have there own apartment or home, a job, an independent life so to speak, is absolutely and utterly rare, and could be said to not be part of the culture here.
However, if you are ok with one partner for life, and kids are your thing, and your threshold for entertainment can be satisfied by Texas Roadhouse or Walmart and seeing the same people over and over, and if you think access to little towns like Ft. Collins, or sterile Western cities like Denver--which is nothing like L.A. or New York or Miami--then drab, windy, boring, Cheyenne with the lowest physical attractiveness index for its citizens, might be the place for you. But if you can be happy in a place like Cheyenne, there are thousands of places, rinky dink as they are, all over the country. if you've had a taste of Miami, or Atlanta, or NYC, and liked it, you will hate the shabby, hick and hillbilly aspect which is and always will be shithole Cheyenne.[read more...]
