Ive been here 5 years and this has been the most uninspiring place Ive ever lived. I never thought it would be true, being surrounded by beautiful mountains. Ive met some wonderful people., but few and far between being here so long. Its not like any other major city where you can just walk up to people in teh supermarket, on the street, and strike up a conversation. You can actually do that in other major cities. Here, everyone keeps to themselves and are uppity. Its hard to make friends and Ive never had a shirtage of friends, until I moved here. If you are single, this is by far the worst place to live. All the hype about it being great for singles is BS.
Only if youre hanging out at the bar at a ski resort, but thats not in Denver.
If you are single stay far far away from here. Chicago and NYC are the nest places to be single. You can actually talk to people and they wont think youa re wierd. People hold back here, they seem to lack sarcasm or are just restrained in some way. Its very very weird, and unfamilar to me.
I cant wait to leave. I also think they think they are so great not wanting other people from other cities or states to live here. What City is against having other folks move in? Denver. That tells a lot about the mentality here. The income here sucks compared to more expensive places Ive lived. I was better off financially in the most expensive cities. I got paid more, my food bill wasnt as high, and my health insurance was way cheaper.
Also, there is no Trader Joes. NO TRADER JOES!!!!
