Would the area be good for me in your opinion: I am 44, divorced, well never married (would like to meet someone special). Work in Customer Service, degree in Marketing and taking medical coding courses. Avid mtn biker. I would like to live somewhere where I can develop my career, afford my own apartment, meet someone special, and enjoy a lot of mountain biking, road cycling, and get my gym workouts and enjoy outdoors.

Okay, 44 years old - not yet married but would love to meet someone special. Degree in Business, work for a large health insurer. I moved from Boise, Idaho BACK to S. California about 4 months ago - and it is just not the same. Family is here (Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, aunts, etc), but there are just too many negatives about this place and I need to leave.
Crazy people on the roads and freeways (seriously), way too crowded, way too intense, unnecessary, and way too expensive. Yes, weather is good but doesn't matter.
I am a "late starter" and need to get my career going, I need to work full time. I'm making about $41,000 here now, which is not much here, and I can only afford about $800/mo maximum in rent somewhere (such as Boise or Bellingham). I am a democrate but middle of the road. Athletic and an avid cyclist (mountain and road). But #1 will be my ability to get a good job and/or one with growth in my field (marketing, health information technology or customer service). I am willing to switch fields to get there, i.e. take a job at T-Mobile call center for a while, or similar.
I am into community service as well, from trail building and maintenance, to charitable work, charitable fund raising rides through my own or corporate efforts. In addition, I think I'd be a good "addition" to a community such as yours, or Boise (again). Job market is terrible in Boise.......still....
So, in your opinions (which are valued, give me the 411, please), would Bellingham be good for me?
Thank you so much for your opinions.
