San Diego, CA
The most highly overrated city in America
Posted On: 2/28/2018 4:14:57 AM
I lived in San Diego for two years back in 2013-2014. When I moved there, I was received nicely. But, the longer I lived there--the more I hated living there. It's a beautiful city and all but it seems so superficial...no depth. It lacks the culture and diversity that you'll find in Miami, a similar city. No real entertainment, nightlife and boring superficial people. It's sunny 24/7 most days, except during a few months out of year there's a raining season. The job market is worse. You are expected to look like a Vogue model to get a job bagging groceries. The jobs pay low for California living. Racism runs rapid against blacks, ultra conservatives, fundies bible-thumpers everywhere. Fake, backstabbing, smug types everywhere. This place is like a mirage---a beautiful city but with a darkness to it. It's something that's completely opposite of what you expect it to be. People judge you on your possessions, not your character... especially your clothes. You are not welcomed in most social circles unless you're Latino or a Spanish speaker. So, making friends there is almost impossible. The homeless population is ridiculous, homeless children, men and women sleeping outdoors like animals all over Balboa Park and cops. The cops are aggressive towards the homeless population out of boredom. I've seen homeless people treated more humanely in cities like NYC and Atlanta. Every one thinks that if you speak to their child... you're a child molester. The city is boring and conservative, so if you're looking for culture and friendlier people...LA is your best bet. An overpriced rental housing market makes it impossible for most people other than government employees or the military to live there.
Oklahoma City, OK
The most oppressive place to live

This place is cursed! I've never lived or been to city or state this depressing in my life. I'll suggest that anyone from the east coast not to move here. If you do, you will regret it and move back only after a few months and hate yourself for making the biggest mistake of your life. I'm going to start with the goods first. 1. If you're extremely conservative, judgmental and a introvert then you'll like living here. 2. Its a midsized city, less traffic than larger cities. 3. The job market is still relatively decent despite their recession. 4. OKC is a family oriented city, so if you're single and liberal...you need not to move here. 5. The housing market is affordable but the rental market is not so...its cheaper cost living is relative because most jobs here pay lower pay scales. The bads outnumbers the bad. The bads are...1. Extreme weather that involves Earthquakes, tornadoes, hailstorms, hot miserable summers. 2. Lack of real entertainment and nightlife...your nightlife is basically going to a Wednesday night bible study or church service. 3. High crime/high poverty rates. You will become a victim of theft or burglary if you live here for some time. 4. Lack of infrastructure and decent public transit. Riding a bicycle is your public transportation. 5. Fake, mean spirited people and deceitful. They seem nice on the surface but they will backstab you, lie and steal from you without any conscience but get this they are CHRISTIANS! Lol. Misery loves company and this is a very miserable place to live. 6. Low teacher salary. The teachers are paid food stamp wages! 7. High child abuse, high incarceration rates for women, domestic violence rates, divorce rates, obesity, meth and drug use out of any state in the country. 8. Very boring city overall and not as attractive as other cities its size but there are some beautification projects underway downtown. 9. Bad schools, the schools are better in Putnam and Edmond. 10. The most backwards alcohol laws in the entire country. 11. Racism is acceptable...especially against blacks. This is the most racist dump that I've ever seen and the minorties live it and do nothing about it. 12. Thirty years behind every city in the entire country...you've been warned!!!!!!
re: Single Women Over 40 Do Not Move to Nashville

I couldn't agree more with this post. If you're moving to Nashville, think again. This city isn't the place for singles of any age. Herd mentality runs deep here and the ridiculous hate for outsiders. There are better cities to live in.
This is not the city for singles or transplants...

Nashville is NOT your typical southern city. Lived in many American cities but this one is the oddest one towards transplants ever. If you're not from here or have family that lives here or married, forget it. There are better cities to live for single transplants, Boston, Buffalo, NY, NYC, etc. You will quickly realize the fakeness of the people here and their herd mentality. The expensive cost of living is overrated for a city that doesn't even have many sidewalks, no real outdoor activities, narcissistic, conceited rude people? And this is a southern city??? Really? I've met friendlier people in NYC, Atlanta and Boston than here. If you're looking to live in a "southern" city then live in Atlanta, Charlotte or even Birmingham. The jobs are mediocre and pay low wages. High crime rate, bad drivers and the public transit is a joke. The blacks are the worst. They're too busy "pleasing" whites to even notice the racism here. The people here also has so anger issues. This city is to visit only and move on to someplace else.
The most backwards and ignorant town in America!

Under any circumstances move to this town--I repeat do NOT move to Tulsa unless you're a low-class redneck trailer park trash or a ghetto black person. I've only lived in this town that its somehow called a city for two months and I'm planning my one way exodus out of here ASAP! The most dumb, stupid and racist place to live. Bad schools, bad low waged jobs, poverty like a third world country, ignorant rude drivers who detest pedestrians and black people! If you're a black woman here, expect to be hated by both whites, Latinos and most black men. Black men here find it acceptable to hate black women and chase white women. The landlords rip you off and make up a fake lease for the tenant and then try to illegally evict you if you're black or not from here! Stupid, dumb, fat lazy people everywhere who think they are smarter than you because you're not from Tulsa. High crime! Racist dump! The KKK runs many businesses there. Tulsa county DHS neglect the most vulnerable citizens on society's children! Children are always abused, staved here because they continue to deny aid to biological parents when they need help and ignore child abuse. Felons everywhere. Never live in this dump. Never!
Omaha isn't the good life!

Whoever said living Nebraska is the good life, they obviously have never lived anywhere else. This place is pathetic. The unemployment rate is false. Most of the poor here are ostracized in bad, violent neighborhoods with low waged jobs and bad schools. The job market is overrated because it lacks entry-level jobs and most professional jobs are blue collared. Most businesses here only hire native omahans. If they hire someone from somewhere else the your managers and coworkers will give you a hard time on the job for no reason at all. You will get fired or quit your job due to harassment. There is this annoying small town mentality, snobbish attitude that most of the natives have. Its very difficult to make friends here because everyone is so afraid that someone will air their business. Rude, bad drivers. The public transit is very limited despite the bus routes been modified in May. The people are boring and monotone without any personality and hang in high school cliques. The poverty rate among minorities is astronomical and the government don't care. There is shootings, gangs and other violence on a daily basis. If you're not from Omaha, you'll find this town a drag and the cheap COL wouldn't matter anymore. This city needs to attract more people from the coasts, really or it will continue to be a lifeless midwestern town. There's nothing cosmopolitan about it. Just drappy and extremely conservative.
