friendsoulmate Posted November 20, 2011 Share Posted November 20, 2011 There arn't any good meetup groups where I live, near my hometown (population is approximately 140,000), but there is a good meetup group about 40 miles away from where I live, so I joined it. About 60 miles away from my hometown, there is a city(similar population size of my hometown) which has an abundance of good meetup groups, with potentially affordable housing. It is not in a major metropollitan area, but near a major metropolitan area. I am considering finding a new job there first, and then moving there, because of the abundance of better meetup groups, as compared to my hometown. The pros of living in a city with better meetup groups, is how easy it would be to make friends and find soulmates, if that is what two people are seriously there to do, at a meetup. I have been to some of the meetups in the city I am considering moving to. My experience from talking to both men and women and their information included in their meetup profile, is they explain that they just moved here for a new job opportunity, far away from their hometown where they were living (such as accross the country, thousands of miles away), and it is uncertain where they plan to settle down. My situation is different, in that I have lived near my hometown most of my life, and if I happen to meet a new date/soulmate, then it would be easy for me to introduce her to my family(only 60 miles away), without long distance traveling. On the other hand, if she wanted to introduce me to her family, then I would need to go with her on a long distance flight elsewhere, in order to meet her family. Would getting involved in a relationship like this be worth it? To me, it seems so unfair that people are forced to move around, because it is difficult finding the right city which fits a person's wants and needs, such as the right job opportunity, affordable housing, affordable housing which is close to where they work, and an abundance of needed social meetup groups for singles. There are good and bad meetup groups. The city I am considering moving to has better groups, which are large groups, which attract what I would consider a more attractive and desirable crowd of clean-cut people, who take care of themselves. This describes me and I need to be with others, who are like myself. Some are professionals, some are not. Link to comment
