What do you think of living there?
I live in Dallas. Love it.
How are the women in the Big D...cowboy?
How long have you been there? Where else have you lived before that?
Jag I especially like the pic where the one girls nipple is showing!
Correction, now that I went back to study it, I have concluded that it was not a nipple but just a small portion of the areola.
Jimmy Buffett didn't like it way back when.
I lived in Dallas from 96 - 2011. DFW is a nice place to live, there are lots of things to do from great sporting events, cultural activities, good restaurants, etc... The economy is diversified enough that the normal downturns don't seem to have as much affect in Texas. You can fly out of DFW airport and get anywhere in the country with relative ease.
The things I don't like are the traffic, it gets too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter (I hate even
1 day if snow or ice), and the City of Dallas politics.
Just moved out here to Fort Worth in January this year, moved from Pensacola... Incredible economy, cost of living, fun and lots to do... negatives are it's hot as shit and landlocked.
I moved to DFW from Phoenix 18 months ago, we really like it here. Now you have to understand our situation: It is the difference between inorganic (rocks, boulders, dust storms etc. which is Phx) and Dallas (which is green with some water and nice parks but tornadoes). We like green and water and snow.
I used to think Phoenix was a big huge city and it is the 7th largest US city, but it does not even come close to the sprawl that is DFW. This place is big.
Other things I noticed, I have never seen a city with so many restaurants they are everywhere. Unlike Florida, where you can go to a Publix and maybe get a BBQ and Sushi at the same mini-mall, this place will have every imaginable flavor you want. 50 restaurants per square mile. And it shows!
Don't be fooled by the pics by the OP, the women here are big-so are the guys. I haven't seen this many 300+ men and women anywhere. The Scottsdale women were an order of magnitude hotter than these so called 10s. It's not even close.
The downside is there is no nice beach within a 10 hour drive. In PHX we had Mexico 4.5 hours, San Diego 5 hours and LA beaches 4 hours. The Texas gulf coast is a toilet. You have to drive east of the Mississippi River to find a nice beach or Corpus Cristi which is the same distance as Atlanta to Miami.
Nevertheless, I was very welcomed by the Gator club here, I haven't attended any events yet since we have three young children. This is a place where you can see any type of event that you want whether a first class Opera, a Picasso exhibit or a Jimmy Buffett concert all in one place. We like the conservative nature of the State and I think we will stay here for a decade or so, until we are empty nesters.
um....Kansas is landlocked.
Texas has the Gulf of Mexico.
Just head south to Galveston.
But NO state income tax, just like Florida.
Jag... :clapping emoticon:
I have been here since 2009, moved here from Boca Raton. I've lived in Atlanta, Boca, Jacksonville, Gainesville and Orlando so I have a big slice of Florida to compare Dallas to. Yes Dallas is land locked but there is a ton to do here, it has a phenomenal business community and the people are nice. I do find that the Dallas women where I live are very nice. I does get super hot here and that is the toughest part of living here but you also get a change of seasons. Overall, I love Dallas and would not go back to Florida unless it was for a house on the beach.
Dude. We're talking about DFW.
I did three years hard time in Denton. Had to head south to Dallas from time to time in order to rejoin the real world. DFW is probably my favorite airport in terms of efficiency. Very easy to pick up/drop off. Plenty to do in Dallas and the Gator club (is it still in Lewisville?) was fantastic. It's been since '96 that I was there, but I don't recall many trees in that region. Just rolling hills and the temp could change 50 degrees in a matter of an hour. Wind would come whipping in during winter and here came the cold. 100+ during the summer was more brutal than the FL heat imo.
How much water do you need?
Been there twice , 110 degrees both times and downtown closed up pretty early. The highlight was going to a Rangers game. Coming from Fla, i could never see the attraction to Dallas, seemed like it was in the middle of nowhere, but most of the locals i met thought it was heaven. Great economy tho, good restaurants, good airport, wife goes there on business quite often. Thankfully, we are not relocating.
Enough to regulate the climate.
