Where to move??? Start Over?
#1
Let me give you some background first. I am 30 year old gay guy that has been living in the closet due to the small town I live in and the disapproval of gay people within the community and my family. I recently had a relationship that lasted three months and fell for this guy hard. He lived three hours away which I would travel every friday and come back on Sunday. Me being the nieve trusting person I am now realize that I am pretty sure I was just someone to make his ex jelouse and when it worked he was done with me but thats another story. Anyway, I am at a point in my life where I need a change and the company I work for is on the downhill slope and my days are numbered there anyway. I have many friends and family here but I dont think I can ever be truly happy or accepted if I was to ever bring a guy into my life here. I am sick of being alone. so.... I have my house, my Harley, snowsled and truck for sale right now so that I can move somewhere. I just dont really know where that somewhere is haha. I went to college and my profession is high demand and there or job openings everywhere so I dont think I will have an issue. I went to school in Wyoming and that is as far west as i have been. No offense to anyone but I def dont want to live in the eastern side of wyoming state. I have been all over new england and been to florida a few times. My profession has been in heavy equiment maintenace management but by background is Diesel hydraulics and metal fab and Heavy equipement operator.
I guess what i am really asking is where the hell should I go? I am at a dead end where i am now. Help me out guys! :biggrin:

Don't move to Wyoming . . . east or west if you are looking for relationship opportunity and to get away from small minded people. It is beautiful, undoubtedly, but Jackson Hole is the only relatively progressive part of that state, and it is only a resort town full of the super rich and those who cater to them . . .

From what I am hearing, truck, sled, Harley, etc. It sounds like you are fond of smallish towns with outdoor activities close at hand. Yet, you also want some place with a sizable population so you can find other gay men to date and people who are used to diversity.

With that order, in the western United States, I would suggest Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and . . . perhaps Northern California. Each of these have larger population centers that are also easy to escape for the mountains. Each of these have significantly sized socially progressive populations. And each of these have smaller, rural town that you could live comfortably in if cities are not your bag.

Those are my suggestions. If you don't mind the heat and perhaps picking up a second language, the South West can have some decent opportunities as well.

Yes, you are right. Someplace that has a larger population nearby that is more accepting and open minded. As it stands right now I am a four hour drive from that kind of city. Thank you for your help. I appriciate you taking the time. Like I said I was in wyoming for college but went to Fort Collins CO just about evey weeked because they had trees and it felt more like home. haha I think Colorado would be ok near Denver.
