    No one mentions the fact that bigger cities are full of dicks and stuck up rich people.
    I moved from a small kansas town to seattle for college (transferred), and the first thing I've noticed was that everybody was rich as shit. If you didn't live a lavish lifestyle as a kid there's no way you can relate to these people. But the work opportunities are great.

      Yeah, this is how I felt going to a big university from a small town. Didn't get a penny from my family, had to get a job the whole time to pay rent with 3 roommates while studying STEM, only to find most kids there had everything paid from their parents and didn't give a frick besides partying. I even slept in my car + school gym to shower an entire semester because one of my student loans didn't pay up. Didn't relate to anyone at that school and now I'm blackpilled from the experience, but i did benefit from the degree. I just work from home and try to live a simple life. Kind of wish I didn't put myself through all that trauma though.

    Most jobs in the city will be better paying. In small towns, it's dollars general, dive bar, gas station, or waiting for a tradesman to die so you can advance. The jobs are worse enough that, unless remote (which you'll only get after building trust in the city), you aren't actually saving money. Dating environment is total shit unless you grew up there, and if you did and didn't meet a decent girl by 22-23, it's a wasteland of fat, b***hy, single moms. So you might as well move anyway.

    I made the mistake and wasted two critical years of my 20s, and I was working remote with a good salary. That didn't make up for everything else.

      this just proves that women are fricking stupid. Big cities are full of women, NYC actually has a large surplus of women. Because they are npcs who fall for the hustle bustle meme life. They'll work at a gas station in a big city because Hollywood told them it's cool, so in rural areas there's a surplus of men.

        Women are in NYC trying to land a winner husband (banker, ceo, etc) while pursuing some career like marketing as a fallback. Silicon valley has historically been a sausage fest because it's full of unattractive nerds, despite the money. Rural areas have fewer high-status men. Most women who don't land a winner in school thus aim higher by going to the city. Many fail and become spinsters, etc but at least you have anonymous funtime city life as a consolation prize.

          I've never lived in a big city, but I've lived mid size places like San Diego or Scottsdale and in my experience, most average guys don't even find average girls to date.

In contrast, average guys are going to have a much easier time dating average chicks and maybe even a bit more attractive as there isn't much dating apps and people to go around.

            Small town America's dating pool is abysmal. If the median age is 10 years higher than the national average, and the population is low, your choices are extremely limited. If you go to outdoorsy clubs, it's just the same 12-15 people and it helps to socialize a little bit. Then if you go to any mid size city in the US, it's like playing on easy mode, even sausage fest tech towns have a large enough female population and you just have to put compete some neck beard reddit types.

            Sometimes there can be class/culture differences muddying the waters here. "Mid" girls might be more into military guys or tougher blue collar types. Especially if you try going to clubs and shit. If you want to get an nerd girlfriend in the US you need to go to a place where nerd girls congregate. Find a place with a strong biotech economy.

                All I'm saying is that your position can change based on city-specific factors. For example San Diego has a large military presence there that will influence the local dating culture. You'll find different kind of people there than you'll find in Nashville.

                Maybe you're onto something though. American women don't actually like that sort of stuff and what they really want is a boyfriend with Black person ahem, "urban..." tastes who wants to go shopping, wants to go to Disneyland, and things like that, not hiking, in their free time.

        Wages have been skyrocketing in Colorado mountain towns lately in response to a severe labor shortage, but so has the cost of an apartment. Everyone wants to work from home and live in the mountains. Expect all local business to charge absurdly high prices. There's nothing south or west of Durango but desolation, natives and the shithole called Farmington, so it is a very desirable place to live, despite a fair number of homeless people. Pagosa has also become very pricey.

    >Has anyone found it worth moving from a small town to a big city?
    Anyone in the world? The numbers scream yes. The global population is predominantly urban and getting more so.

    Me personally? Also yes. I spent a total of more than twenty years in big cities and mostly loved it. I’m in a very small city now, and mostly like that too, but I still live right in the center. I have small town/suburban/village options and don’t want to take them.

    Tastes and personal styles vary a lot, as do cities. Some people hate big cities and shouldn’t live in them. But I found small town life unsatisfying in some ways I decided were important to me (among other things, I hate having to drive all the time—I have learned that my quality of life is dramatically improved by having stuff I need in my everyday life that I can walk to, and I also appreciate access to transit), and I find urban life scores better by those metrics.

    But ultimately, do what you want. Big cities are almost always going to be more expensive and crowded than smaller places. Often dirtier, too. They’re also usually going to pay higher salaries and be better educated than smaller places, along with offering a greater variety of things to eat, drink, buy, and do. Maybe the pros will outweigh the cons for you, maybe the cons will convince you that you are not an urbanite by inclination. Neither is a bad outcome.

      My experienced are based on living in an area with two closely connected 12k towns. I moved in with my parents to save money after getting a shiny new remote job to save a bunch of money compared to being in a big Texas city.

      The money was good; and it was a decent area. But there's not much point, as a normal person, getting a house if you don't have a spouse. I just didn't fit in with the redneck stuff (even though I'm not even liberal), and the realistic dating options were embarrassingly trashy.

      The money I saved was good; but wasting several years only made me less dateable in the long run. It may be petty, but I felt that if I stayed, I would die alone or settle for wigger trash. Run-through girlbosses are an improvement to that.

      The Colorado town where I chose to work summers has 5000 people, and everything is one mile away. And I mean everything...mountain trails, whitewater rafting, live music, street festivals, grocery stores, health food stores, boutique shops, bakeries, a library, liquor stores, weed shops, public shower, laundromat, etc. Entry-level wages are also higher than in the cities due to a severe labor shortage. People often fall for the stereotype that all American towns with a Main Street at their center are lifeless dead-ends, but it's not true.

      Has anyone found it worth moving from a small town to a big city? Or is it a very expensive meme unless it's for a better paying job?

      Living in a wealthy American city as a poorgay means you are excluded from enjoying almost all of the consumer experiences on offer. Sure, it's fun being around all that energy at first, but after a while, you get tired of watching everyone else have fun. Of course, this is an incentive to hustle as hard as you possibly can and climb the corporate ladder. Personally I would never grind away at a career in an American city when there are so many amazing cities around the world where I can enjoy a life of leisure and bountiful consumer choices on a very modest budget.

There is a liberal arts college so there's a lot of women albeit with awful personalities.

        Yes, but I also don't vibe with those "Ban hate, not books" hicklibs either. They're insufferable.

          You have to be a special kind of stupid to consistently run into those people. Are you going to like the 1 or two "Craft beer" places or some shit? Or are your "small towns" just college towns full of morons who are riding out their parents cash funds "finding themselves".

            10-15k towns 40-60 miles from a major city. There's a shitty community college in one, but that's not even where you see it. It's just literal 40-50yo redditors, just out in the country; who think they're really cool for sticking up for anal sex.

              What town are you talking about, this sounds very specific to (you). Are you living in some gay retiree town in Florida?

      >What exactly does SighSee consider rural america?
      There are several levels with very blurry lines between, there are a variety of factors that contribute to "rural character." Generally speaking I go by the size of the "metro area" but some US metro areas cover a very large area with a "not exactly happening" mid-size city as the nucleus. Contrast Rochester, NY with say, Nashville, TN. Rochester metro is 1 mil and Nashville is 2 mil, yet Nashville's urban center is 700k with a thriving music culture, so is popular with young people. Rochester metro is mostly rural and suburban with a tiny and decrepit urban core.

      The "levels" for me are basically

      1. Legit rural.
      2. Small rural city (<50k with no larger city within 50 miles).
      3. Rural "hub" city. You're technically in a city, maybe even fairly large (200k+) and have similar amenities to other cities, but not necessarily thriving with youthful economy.
      4. Legit major city with a vibrant metropolitan area with well-contained ghettos catering to young and ambitious career-oriented and socially-oriented people.

      The Colorado town where I chose to work summers has 5000 people, and everything is one mile away. And I mean everything...mountain trails, whitewater rafting, live music, street festivals, grocery stores, health food stores, boutique shops, bakeries, a library, liquor stores, weed shops, public shower, laundromat, etc. Entry-level wages are also higher than in the cities due to a severe labor shortage. People often fall for the stereotype that all American towns with a Main Street at their center are lifeless dead-ends, but it's not true.
      [...]
      Living in a wealthy American city as a poorgay means you are excluded from enjoying almost all of the consumer experiences on offer. Sure, it's fun being around all that energy at first, but after a while, you get tired of watching everyone else have fun. Of course, this is an incentive to hustle as hard as you possibly can and climb the corporate ladder. Personally I would never grind away at a career in an American city when there are so many amazing cities around the world where I can enjoy a life of leisure and bountiful consumer choices on a very modest budget.
      [...]
      The reverse is also true. There are plenty of unattractive women in cities, but they are basically invisible to single men who only have an eye for stuck-up Stacies.
      [...]
      Country women eat too much, it's true. And they spend less on beauty products and clothes. It's amazing how plain Jane most girls look without makeup and designer outfits.
      [...]
      Partially true. If you are a citygay, then sure, you will click with your fellow citygays who love talking about gay shit like TV shows and the latest fashion trend. But if you are a hardworking godfearing white man whose idea of small talk is crop prices and weather patterns, you aren't going to click with city slickers, no way. Whereas such a guy can drop in at any country store, shake hands and make friends right off the bat.

      >The reverse is also true. There are plenty of unattractive women in cities, but they are basically invisible to single men who only have an eye for stuck-up Stacies.
      No, not nearly to the same extent (and your pathetic bias is revealed by assuming that all pretty girls are stuck-up). But more importantly, it's not just "big cities," the point is that women go to the big cities in the first place in order to be around the high-value males, leaving lower-tier men in the rural areas a choice: accept rural celibacy or move to the city and compete. The "unattractive women in cities" are invisible because there aren't as many appropriate men there for them in the first place.

    >downtown is socializing made easy compared to the city life
    >easy to socialize in these environments since trailer trash/college poors gets filtered by anything more than 3 dollar well drinks
    >never step foot in the poor peoples places like the casino's or applebees so don't have to deal with fat karens everywhere
    >holiday events in the city always good social meetups
    >probably would have landed a girl if I haven't been travelmaxxing
    >looking to buy a house in the next 2-3 years after saving a bit more but apartment is so cheap not ideal right now
    Dunno city life was harder to break into with women for me than a small town. Telling some of my travel stories have given me a lot of friends.

    it is worth doing because it exposes you to a new life. you are not required to stay if you do not want to. but better to have tried and not liked it than to have been a pusy and not tried it.
    a year goes very quickly regardless of where you are.

      And it's easier to downsize from a HCOL city to a LCOL exurb or small town, than the reverse.

    Do you guys just not go to the gym or are you those anons who only go to the gym at like 11PM when no one else is around? Anytime Fitness or Planet fitness in small cities are literally easy fat filters for women and generally insanely easy social meetup places.

    The way you guys talk about smaller towns or rural parts of the US is like every place being a copy of Shamrock TX or Wales AK. I don't think there is a single anon on this board who is actively discussing living there or

      man, I mean, I guess it's an option, but I don't really like interacting with people at the gym at all. I ended up getting some stuff for my house, partly because of this, partly because I like training outdoors, partly so I didn't have to drive. (I also ended up pivoting to mostly endurance goals later, but that's a separate point and only related insofar as it's an expression of underlying autism.).

      That's where the cliqueishness of small towns fricks you.

      Yeah I also do all my grocery shopping and errands and gym after 7 pm if possible. There's no annoying people around especially no single mothers with bratty kids. I guess that's why I don't meet people.

      I go to the gym regularly and have never once spoken to a girl there. I’m there to exercise, not pick up vapid prostitutes who film their ass during squats for social media validation
