    In the US? Really anywhere rural and 'flyover'. The more agrarian the better, because the people there will not care even slightly about internet bullshit.

      nope. if you don't have roots at least *somewhat* nearby, you will not fit in. I can get by in the Great Lakes region, but as much as i would like to maybe live in small-town New England someday, i know i would immediately stand out. not my culture. OP would be better off in some small, random college town.

      New identity as in "I identify as a woman now", or new identity as in "nobody cares about my past"?
      If the former, go to any queer-loving place.
      If the latter, go to a city or town that sees a lot of transplants and newcomers. People are so used to seeing unfamiliar faces and transient wanderers in such places that nobody will care about you. Of course, social isolation will be your lot in life in such a place.

      If you want to be invisible, do NOT go to a place that rarely sees newcomers, like West Virginia or rural Ohio. You will stick out and arouse curiosity, usually friendly, but it sounds like you don't want to deal with the nosiness.

      NYC is the peak of "fricking off to where no one knows you"
      I never saw a single person I knew while living in NYC for 4 years and never got to know a single person by name unless I actively tried. No one gives a shit about you there so you pretty much have peak privacy, highly highly doubt the rural south is like that

      What you say is true, but NYC is also a place with a lot of cameras. If you are on the lam, it may be hard to stay unnoticed.

      It's ironically the opposite. In California and the northeast you are one of millions of rootless transplants who moved there because they hated their hometown. Nobody questions your origins as everyone assumes Ohio is boring and poor so you moved for that reason.

      Puerto rico or American Somoa

      You need proof of onward travel and a passport just to visit American Samoa, as an American. Yes, really. This is one of the few places in the U.S. where this exists, because American Samoa has a great deal of legal autonomy. Puerto Rico is a shithole but you can move there easily.

      Unless you are content to hide out deep in the woods, you would definitely be noticed in rural Arkansas, and if nobody can figure out who you are and what you are up to, the police WILL stop you on some pretext.

      Northwest Arkansas is booming and has lots of people from outside the region due to the Walmart HQ and many companies that deal with Walmart have offices there. Anywhere else in Arkansas? Lmao, I've been questioned just for stopping at a gas station. Nothing hostile but like "you really drove here from there?"

      Yea this small town meme needs to die. If you’re a rando the small town morons will quickly realize you’re some fricking weirdo intruder

      More than people realize. Everyone knows each other, at least in passing. The bank teller will recognize you from earlier that day while you're shopping for groceries and start a conversation.

      Personally, I've been all over the US and the places I can recommend for OP are:
      >Vegas.
      Very few people grow up in Vegas so you easily blend in with a ton of losers who end up there. Reno though has a small town vibe where people know each other well and are suspicious of outsiders.
      >Phoenix
      Most people in Arizona are from somewhere else. It's very libertarian, so full of crazies already, and nobody gives a shit about you. You can legally carry guns if not a felon.
      >Florida
      Which is a lot like Arizona, but flatter and wetter.
      >Colorado and California
      Snobby, but full of transplants. Denver is a lot cheaper than California.
      >Alaska
      There's good jobs for the able-bodied and people from all over go there for them.
      >Special mention, Oregon
      If convicted pedo/sexual predator, Oregon has the most lax laws on this. They won't even put you on the registry unless you did something really bad.

        Yeah, every inch of rural Arkansas is already in somebody's fiefdom. NWA isn't a horrible suggestion if OP has a trade and wants to find a cash job. Not to be /p*l/ but making more than poverty wages under the table will probably go away everywhere within a few years.

        Yeah, OP isn't gonna stick out trying to illegally work a factory job an hour north of Bangkok like he's a Burmese migrant for 500 USD/month. Are you really this moronic?

        maybe he should get a education for free. what is he going to do, work at one of the only factories left in the usa

    Although the poster above who recommends the middle of nowhere someplace might have a point, a stranger from somewhere far away in a place with few people (and in the quietest agrarian/flyover parts of the country, most are going to be a few generations local at least, unless you try to get some kind of job on a vanity ranch for some interloper billionaire) is always going to stick out. Almost certainly easier to blend in inconspicuously in a dense population center (far from wherever you started) where a lot of people chose to move from somewhere else.

    I have no idea how hard it is to literally assume a new identity, which seems like it would require new identification, new social security number, scorched-earth approach to prior digital and paperwork footprint… doubt most people can pull it off. But if it’s a lower-key matter of living under a fake name for a while, moving somewhere that other people also like to move, not near wherever whatever a person is running away from is, seems feasible.

    But they’re probably going to catch you eventually if they’re looking.

          this is counterintuitive but true. i've lived in a couple big cities and a couple small-medium cities and you meet way more people in a town less than 500k than you do in a city of 5M. you can be anonymous in NYC, Chicago, DFW, LA.

          I find that even in big cities like NYC or Tokyo, when I'm out and about every single day, even if I don't stick around the same neigbourhoods, I often see people I've seen before in different places.

    I assume you would still want access to a bigger city for career opportunities. I would say DFW, TX suburbs. Probably more on the Fort Worth side.

    Starting a new blank legal identity you'll need to do more research than we can possibly offer here. Depends on your personal situation ie do you already own property, have a record, how much family do you have, what are you trying to escape from, and so on and so forth.

    If you simply want to pack a bag and go to a new city, pick a large city in a state with generous welfare benefits and renters protections. The first few years will be an immense grind but immigrants with no papers and barely any command of English do the same thing every day.

    Not OP, but I make 75k+ and want to get out of my podunk Tx town. Where can I move that isn’t going to frick me with exorbitant rent and cost of living? I just want to meet new people and as little blacks as possible. I have nothing against black people but virtue signaling embarrasses me to no end. Preferably somewhere with no state tax.

    Appalachia or the Mountain West region. Rural idaho, Montana, Utah, maybe eastern Oregon. Would be hard to find work in some of those places but you'd be left alone and they're mostly cheap as frick. You can buy a decent house in West Virginia for $140k

    Denver. Every person I’ve asked isn’t originally from here.

    There’s so many frickin jobs. I got fired twice in a year and had another job in a few weeks

      Yes, Denver is also quite an anti-social city, so the likelihood of people you meet trying to be nosy about your past life is very low.

    Why would you stay within the US? Already the wrong mindset.
