  1. I love NY! I thought about moving there because I love the city so much and to also find Mr. Right. The only issue I have is based on a recent, I believe Forbes, article I read online regarding which cities will be bouncing back from the recession and when. New York was not projected to bounce back until 2012. I live in Dallas now and the Dallas/Ft. Worth/Arlington area (due to the new Cowboys Stadium, I suspect) is high on the list of cities that will recover sooner…like next year if I’m not mistaken.

    The dating market for a highly educated Black woman in Dallas sucks…gotta find better crop somewhere…not sure I can wait for NY to bounce back financially before making the move…

    I was going to Florida for a while – I suppose it’s not too bad overall. But hey, doesn’t matter where I go as long as I can spot another SHI Symbol wearer I’m happy – and so are they!
