Hi there,

I made a similar post a few years ago asking specifically about Chicago. Now I wanna know what other young (I'm in my 20s) frum single communities exist beyond the New York area. I'm looking to a move to a place with a relatively low cost of living (i.e. not places like LA, Chicago, or Boston). I don't need (and certainly don't even expect) some big social scene or amazing dating prosepcts or anything like that, basically just want a place where I'll still have a frum social life and not be lost among a community comprised almost entirely of families. I heard there's something in Houston but don't know anything about it, and would love to hear about other similar kinds of communities as well.

Thanks for the help!

Honestly I think this is going to be somewhat tough. I'd recommend looking into where big colleges are and hopefully you find a nice amount of singles. Would DC / Baltimore work? Another suggestion would be to look into regular (non-frum or non-Jewish) singles are living; usually wherever a big group of those singles are, the frum ones make their way as well.

But there is going to be far less in terms of dating prospects and singles opportunities than in NYC

Best of luck.
God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

The frum U.S. is a wasteland outside of NYC. That's just the way it is.

Baltimore, Atlanta and Miami may be options, but they are far inferior to NYC.

Does NJ count? I know there is a bit of a scene in Teaneck.

New Jersey does NOT count! :p
