Review of Loveland, Colorado

Worst place on earth
Star Rating - 8/2/2017
I have lived here for 20 years and it used to be a quiet, cheap, sparsely populated and nice place to live. It took 10 minutes to go to the bank or drive across town now you need 45 minutes to an hour. the cost of living has more than doubled while wages and benefits have been gutted. We voted to legalize marijuana and now 50% to 60% of the plates you see aren't even from Colorado. People drive like mentally deranged airheads. I don't know if this is due to the weed or the privileged entitlement of these cretin. Which, by the way, you will be drug tested for for every job every month consistently even though it is legal. So there's nothing to rent and no jobs to pay for the rent because it's so exorbitant you would need at least three of them. They don't allow pets, roommates or unmarried couples. They are all so filthy and horrifying you would think we lived in midevil times. I am not exaggerating and if you disagree it's because you must be a filthy nasty slob who lives in Colorado. So now we have crowds and loads of fast food chains to cram inbetween all our banks, churches, and mountains and pollute this once decent town all because it's cool to pay taxes on weed. Oh and don't forget the polluted toxic water from all the Fracking. But oh the economy is great right? Yeah, as long as your not a native.

Read the original comment. Read the reply. That is what it is like to live in Loveland. There are some cool folks around, but people generally hate each other and hate their lives.

I think you're an absolute idiot. We get it, you're an upset privileged (or not, clearly you can't get a job you low life) "native" who can't handle the hardships of life and cry over every bump in the road. I am 18 with many unmarried friends who have pets that live in loveland, not to mention your perspective on fast food is incredibly inaccurate. I am from Michigan, one of the fattest states, and the fast food in Colorado is pathetic comparatively. I have had three different jobs in loveland and not one has ever asked to be drug tested. Not to mention everything you say has nothing to back it up. I can agree with you that the drivers are awful, but this is because they are from all of the country, and Colorado's driving requirements are little to none; 18 year olds are getting their license with hardly any experience and begin driving on the highways the next day. Weed is not the issue. While it is illegal to smoke and drive, there have been studies done with high drivers and the results were inconclusive. The drivers showed no sign of becoming less attentive or more aggressive drivers than when they were sober. Stay home and cry about your "deteriorating" town if you would like, but don't complain about it to the rest of us.
