Des moines iowa single female dating
It does seem like we get a lot of sunshine despite the snowy conditions. Frankly the cost of living there seems extremely manageable- ie for about 800 bucks a month you can get a really nice apartment. I am hoping that des moines has a lot of things to do and even though it can be wintry- I assume people will still want to go out downtown. The taxes are high in all regards, but the cost of land and building is so low that rents can remain low even after the landlord factors in property taxes.
While it can get really bad, I'm fairly sure it's nothing you haven't seen before. Would you say the city downtown is relatively safe? I think 800 gives you room to get some really great apartments out there.

The city isn't dead, but it also won't compete with much larger cities. The winter will put a major damper on things, but there will still be some people who will fight the cold for the opportunity to do something. When I lived in Iowa, I rarely made a trip out in the winter unless it was required.There doesn't seem to be the opportunists looking to mug people or as much of a homeless presence as you might find in other cities. The problem you might have in Des Moines is that it can feel desolate downtown, which can make it seem unsafe. There's a skywalk system, and there's not a lot of foot traffic on the sidewalks at times (especially when it's cold), so that can contribute to that desolate feel as well.While it has improved greatly over the years with numerous activities downtown throughout the year, it can still feel quite barren at times during weeknights and on the weekends. It used to be that people just went downtown to work, but it has quickly grown into a place where people live, work, and play. If you've lived in upstate New York, a Des Moines winter should be no problem for you. Some years they're pretty mild and there's not as much snow, ice, or below zero temps, and other years winters are miserable and can last from November through May and we constantly get pummeled by system after system with a plethora of snow, ice, heavy winds, and below zero temps.Please register to participate in our discussions with 2 million other members - it's free and quick!Some forums can only be seen by registered members.
