Friend, be well. Be bold. Be brave. Be you, because you are incredible.

I’m glad you’re here.

  1. I moved here from Chicago about 1.5 years ago. Like you have said there are things I love about this town and things I don’t. If I were a dude in my late 20s or early 30s I would think Fort Wayne is awesome. I’m a 46 year old woman and I have to say while there are some amazing people here I don’t feel I have value here. I’m a politically aware, artist, hard working, tax payer who supports local businesses as much as she can. While I’m grateful for the lower cost of living, I’m disappointed in the job scene here as there are so many low-paying jobs. I’ve been job hunting every day since I have arrived. I’ve met a lot of people but I have only made a few friends. When people meet me and find out I’m single, have never been married, and I don’t have any kids . . . . they respond like I’m sort of alien. I don’t think I have encountered another single 46 year-old woman here. I still root for things to work out for me but I have to say I’m disappointed.

    • Gosh, I’m so sorry. I wish your story were unique in its details. I sadly know it is not. I hope you can continue to find people and spaces.
