RE: Information on moving to europe.
Yeah true. I think a lot of people on this forum exaggerate the shittyness of the US and the women there. I myself think Switzerland or Austria are way shittier.

Also, suicide rates are among the highest in the world int hese countries. Have you ever thought about why that is so? As someone who has lived in Switzerland for several years, I can tell you. It's boring as fuck, its expensive (to the point that your additional gains get eaten up quickly unless you live like a balkan imigrant) and people are cold.

There's way better options in Europe. Although it really depends on 4 things.

Language skills, what is your job, do you have a problem with cold weather and how much do you value the easyness the women

The working language is English in any company worth working for. Outside of London, German-speaking Europe has the best job market by a longshot. You will find a job but the question is why would you want to live there? As you put it, those places are boring as fuck. Everyone follows the rules and and live in this collectivist/group-think little world. Either integrate and 'become a part of society' or... Plus, the women are worse than American women. I lived in Vienna for a year and I would have killed myself if I had to stay one day longer.

RE: Information on moving to europe.
I get what you guys are saying. What works for one won't work for all.
By all means I don't think its the worst country in the world here in the US, but I have my ideas and opinions just like everyone else.
I started learning german already. I'm positive ill be fluent by the time I'm out of the service and I'm considering picking up another language during the time there.

For language I'm fluent in English and Spanish. At a conversational level I can hold my own in Portuguese.
Job wise I plan to do software engineering professionally, not just dabble in it as a hobby. Although lately I've been considering learning carpenting on the side if time permits.

Cold weather isn't an issue.
How much do I value the easyness with women? Not much if at all anymore.
I'm more concerned with realizing my full potential and pushing past it.

Though to most of you it may be boring as fuck, clicky, conservative, and what not. That's fine with me. I'm not looking for Vegas in Germany, Or NY in Switzerland. If I want that I can just travel or go to Vegas.

@Ice the information you provided did help. Much appreciated.

@trainwreck in your opinion what are the better options in Europe?

I'm always open to the knowledge, opinions, and ideas of others.

How are you going to remain in Europe?

Your not a citizen and you will need a work permit.

Are you a software engineer now?
