Oh and to add - the "slowness" UGH! I grew up on the East Coast and the overly chill vibe of the city gets to me as well. I feel like L.A. or Dallas is like 50x faster than Denver. People are writing checks in line at the Safeway like in Denver - that's for sure ;-)

Honestly, the city has changed so much since you lived here that I probably don't know. As someone who's about to turn 30 and has been here a little over a year, I always have the idea of leaving in the back of my head.

Dating scene here is rough - girls really do play games (or maybe it's the lack of oxygen questioning their judgement, who knows?) Talked to an EX that I'm now friends with again and she's like "you should be killing it out there." I'm like "I do OK, but not for all the amount of awful dates I've been on."

And BTW: It's not just me. I've seen many good looking guys get railroaded by awful young girls in this town. I can't imagine it being a lot better for someone single and a little bit older but it's possible.

Last night I went out with a bunch of co-workers as well as with mgmt from SoCal. Everyone was talking about extreme sports, this camping trip, this zip line trip, this mountain biking trip. And he's joking like "Well everyone but N598UA does this extreme stuff since he used to live in SoCal." I laughed and was like "ha, yeah, it's kind of true." The thrill seeking is starting to be a turn off and the mountains are too far away for me prioritize them with my job. Which is kind of funny since L.A. has mountains but nobody obsesses over them either.

I've met some really great guys out here, but every now and again there's always a warning that even they want to get out of here.

Bottom line: I'm still evaluating but to be almost 30 I'm not sure if it's worth staying here. I feel the high altitude heightens my depression and anxiety in the form of anger which was not the case when I lived in SoCal.

If I do leave, it will be to Austin or back to Los Angeles. I was just back out in L.A. for work and immediately felt more level headed upon hitting curbside at LAX.

Yeah, not a good sign. The choice is yours, but I'd be careful about coming back.

Well Said - I'm a guy form the Northeast and agree with every single point you made. Including loving L.A.

Still Self-Evaluating - Too Much Midwest Influence

I've lived in Denver for a year and moved here for work from CA. I grew up in the NYC-metro area in the NJ suburbs. Let's just say I'm a rare breed and it was a "roll the dice" move on relocating to Denver.

I will say when they say it's the "Queen City of the Plains," It truly is. Despite all the transplants from CA, TX, or the Northeast, the city is molded by Midwesterners. It's "their" town, with their intoxicated passive aggressive rules. It's either fit in or get out. And to me that's a dysfunctional mindset to have.

I honestly go back and fourth. Last month with the exceptionally mild weather was pretty great. But when there are low, man, there are lows.

I echo many of the comments about how professionalism just isn't relevant or cared about out here. I was terminated from my old job for reasons that were unexplained. My bosses were totally aloof and had their heads literally up their a**es. Direct people in the work place are generally frowned upon - thankfully I found a new job with MUCH better and direct people.

The dating scene for a laid back, sarcastic, fun guy is cruel. Girls here are largely damaged and/or seriously dumb upstairs. Many like to take advantage and/or use you. One wrong move on a date (mannerisms, topics of conversation, jokes) and the date is dead on the table.

For a city that's so "chill" I've never met so many single women who aren't. Never have I been in so many heated arguments by pig headed thrill seekers or gold diggers. And good luck defending yourself even if you're right. You'll be berated by lying into how wrong you are. Honestly, I wouldn't consider Denver to be filled with intelligent people by any means.

Other lows include literally the worst drivers in the nation, dryness (always picking my nose,) a local population that is hooked on soft and hard drugs, rising cost of living. Coming from CA, I don't see traffic as too much of a problem.

As for the highs, coming into the fold within the last few months is literally realizing how within a year I've casually met friends, built a small network, and have become reliable. They have literally backed me up in a fight a few months ago. My friend network in CA was pretty dried up, so I'm grateful for them.

Also if you like drinking, Denver is your place. This place has a fun and walkable bar scene, even if the service tends to be slow and terrible (it is.)

I'm happy that I've met some great people, but I'm not convinced if it's enough to stay. Life is too short to be meeting oddball women and feeling drained by it.
