I am going to be stuck here at least a few more years, and all I can do is hope I don't go completely insane before then. If you are thinking about moving here, consider the following. No major league sports, limited shopping and dining, very few cultural opportunities. You'll have to drive to Kansas City or Oklahoma City if you want to attend a popular concert.
Also, there seem to be monopolies on grocery and drug stores. There is only one decent enclosed shopping mall. They seem perfectly content with what little is here, or they are OK with making road trips to get those things.
Between here and there is a whole lot of nothing. And the flights you can get are ridiculously overpriced. Just because you're smack in the middle of the country doesn't mean easy access Wichita ks worst dating city anywhere. Summer is sunny, windy, and hot.
Winter is sunny, windy, and cold. Spring and fall last about two weeks each. It hardly ever rains, so if you have a lawn, you'll have to water it frequently. Mosquitoes and other insects are everywhere. If you
Wichita ks worst dating city allergies, plan on taking meds nearly year-round. Moving here, you will always be an outsider. And if you don't care about KU or K-State, you won't have anything to talk with them about anyway.
There are of course parks, but no real "wild" areas within a short distance of town or public lands. For example, you have to drive a couple of hours to find some decent hiking trails and forested hills. Otherwise, it's flat and featureless here.
When if someone comes to visit you, good luck finding something interesting to show them or somewhere fun to take them. Old Town is kind of fun for a date night, but can be dangerous and often seems like a ghost town. The zoo is nice, but since it's usually too hot or too cold outside, you won't want stay long.
Sure, new houses in other cities are cookie-cutter too - but at least they often have some attractive features. In the south, there is a traditional look; in the southwest, there is a southwestern look.
Houses here are often plain boxes. Also, many people don't fence in their yards, so their kids and dogs roam free. And liquor stores cannot sell mixers or snacks.
I could probably go on, but 10 is a good place to stop my rant. You have been warned. Where did you move to Wichita from? I lived there 3 years moving from a smaller town in Central Kansas. Now I'm in Kansas I think with ANY city before you consider moving there you should make many visits and get to know your surroundings and listen to everything good and bad said about the city.
I actually miss Wichita in many ways but realize for now and probably for a while that its employment situation is pretty poor and I don't see how I'd get a decent job there. "Wichita ks worst dating city" frustrating but I'll let Kansas continue to hurt itself and hope it changes its ways eventually if I want to return. So why did you move there? Yep, winter is cold and summer is hot.
