Not the Right Place for Me - Could be Good for Many Others

I lived in Denver for around 2 years. I was fooled by visiting a few times before that it's a dynamic US city that can compare to the coasts. Well, it isn't. As others have said, if you're used to living in larger cities like Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, NYC, Boston, etc Denver will more than likely provide disappointment and regret. There are PROS: The weather is ideal. Winters aren't bad at all compared to say MN or NJ, but snow can and will start in October and happen as late as May. It does go away fast as temperatures can be 80 degrees as early as February. Outdoor activities are abundant, but if you're a homebody you can stick out like a sore thumb. There are many affordable bars and restaurants. Denver can be walkable and good for biking depending on where you live. Neighborhoods are quite charming. Despite my type A personality, I met and retained a lot of good friends in DEN even after I moved out. The BAD: People are very passive aggressive - there is a lot of Midwest influence here as many move from places like Iowa or Wisconsin to get out of their small conservative bubbles in favor of the "big city" (lot's of sheltered adults, you catch my drift.) The service at bars and restaurants is SLOW, that will piss anybody from the coasts off. In the workplace, I've never witnessed more games and indirectness. HOA associations are crooked and stupid. They also play games. Anybody that works hard and is direct will likely become an outcast fast. And that's just sad. The dating scene here is horrible, I never encountered so many self centered sanctimonious women. It was rated the worst place to date in the nation last year. It's easy to rub people the wrong way by having any kind of an outside opinion here, or giving people advice. The local neighborhood bar for instance has "Monday Morning Meetings" to discuss the behavior of their regulars. Seriously? Who the hell does this? I go to bars in L.A. where I live and I'm beloved there, what gives as to why I'm not liked in Denver is beyond me. Cost of living and traffic is going up, but not nearly as bad as many larger metro areas. And altitude sickness is real, you'll get hungover fast and feel like you want to pass out. You'll have to drink so much water that you'll be peeing every 15 minutes. I can't see Denver being a good city for old people because of the altitude and exposure to extra radiation. Denver is probably a great city to move with a family, or if you're a stable couple in need of change. But for most other direct and smart people, I can't recommend it.

The Good and Bad about Denver, CO I've heard a lot of really good things about Denver and some not so good things on Denver. I'm hoping some locals can shed some light.
