Mystic is cool, and there are a couple of gigantic casinos (Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun). Beyond that, little to nothing. You could safely partition it between n*w y*rk, Massachusetts and Rhode Island and no one would be the wiser.

Anything to do around Hartford? I really want to meet a millennial woman who is a weirdo like me. Not sure where I should go exploring.
>>
>>2295223
Hartford is one of the worst cities in New England. In fact, all the larger cities in CT are shit tier, and since NE is small, I will throw in Providence as also shit, and Springfield MA

The casinos are neat once or twice, Mohegans is better across the board... I grew up just off the road that connects the two. Mystic is comfy. I do like Newport RI and seeing the gilded age mansions on the beach there.
>>
>>2295236
Ok, but how do people meet in central CT? I mean, people do somehow get married and have children in this state. As a 32 year old single guy, what are some good places to go to in order to approach single women?

I'm from the Midwest originally and we would hear stereotypes about New Englanders being cold and reserved but I didn't think it was actually true. Even when I go for a walk in the park and say hi to passersby, I often get stared at as if I did something wrong.

I've been here only a few months and I'm already considering moving.

CT is the ass of New England, literally go to any other state. Massachusetts and Rhode Island have better history and beaches, New Hampshire and Vermont have better wilderness, Maine has better... meth or something idk Maine is kinda shitty too.

Come on now. Providence is way, way better than those two absolute shitholes. No comparison.

These are the only contexts where I could see a younger adult (21-35) being excited to be in Connecticut. It's not that it's the worst place in the world or anything like that it's just really not a "happening" spot. It's a state to raise kids in mainly.

Yeah probably not the worst idea, there's fuck all to do in central CT.
>>2296360

Nature, coastline, gun laws, crime rates etc. I'm not saying Maine is incredible but at least it's a proper outdoorsy state unlike CT which is basically just a big suburb with some lame small "cities."

Florida or Texas

>I think people are far more aloof/materialistic here
yeah, I completely agree.

As for not being ugly, well not much I can do. I'm in my 30s and not aging well. I used to be a decent-looking guy before I lost my hair but now that I'm bald, I don't look very appealing. Only thing I can really do is stay in shape.

I'm from Bridgeport and there's not much to do here if you're not into skeazy nght scene stuff.
If you want cheap hookers though we've got those in spades, like literally a 2 minute walk down the street is an Asian massage parlor for me, which is down the street from what used to be a strip club I could get laid at easily, which itself is down the street from a grimy little bar with a backroom you could get laid in if you're really desperate for smelly, STD riddled pussy.
>>
>>2299372
Why don't you move
>>
>>2299387
Because I already have a house here, have a well-paying job a couple of towns over, and in general I stay to myself anyways so I don't need to live in a place where there's a lot to do.
Ngl, would be nice to live in a place where I feel safe walking around at night, but there's not that many places in America like that anyways. I'd need to move to a first world country for that kind of safety.
>>
>>2299372
OP here. With all due respect, I have no interest going anywhere near Bridgepor or any area with a high crime rate.

Fucking whores sounds tempting, but I travel a lot and I'd rather just do that in some European country where it's legal and the women are a lot hotter. Besides, I'm looking to settle with someone. I'm getting old and I need a life partner.

Still looking for some interesting places around the Hartford area to meet weirdo women. I tried going to some board games store recently but that place was full of fat dudes and no women.
>>
>>2299919
Damn, even people not from CT feel it necessary to shit on Bridgeport.

For all of those not from here -- It's really not that bad if you don't live here and walk around regularly, It's not like the bad parts of Chicago or Detroit, It's just a really hideous city that looks more dangerous than it is.
>>
>>2296501
Yeah, send him to spic country. That will be so much better.
>>
>>2299926
All CT cities are shit. Tourists are much better off going to Mystic, New London, or some other little seaside town where they can walk around touristy little shops, see the shore, or take a ferry to one of the islands. Though you have more impressive beaches further east in RI or MA
>>
>>2295236
Rhode island as a whole is a massive dump. Its literally there to launder money
>>
>>2300601
It used to have legal prostitution. Funny how 49 states just love cucking men.
>>
>>2299926
If it's any consolation, I don't like CT in general. People here are rude and I'm not a fan of the reserved attitude I constantly come across.

It's a shame because CT has some great companies to work at for folks with STEM backgrounds. It's not enough to persuade me to stay here though. I'm moving back to the Midwest as soon as I get a decent job offer.

If you're going to Connecticut, be sure to check out Mianus. You'd be surprised what you might find in Mianus. I recommend people go into Mianus at least once in their lives.

How similar is New England to the original?

This anecdote >>2295933 about getting looked at like a weirdo for talking to strangers is making me think that there may be more similarities than just then name.

Maybe London isn't the best example, but when I went for walks there, it seemed fairly common for random people to greet me.

I can't believe you're gonna try to do Providence like that, anon. Providence has actual soul, on many levels. Hartford and Springfield are basically fake.

>>2295933
A girl from just over the border in MA used to send me nudes, every single day like clockwork. We never even met, she just sent me nudes every day for 3 years. One day she sperged out about me taking screenshots, but not before I had literally 900+ nudes of her.
She got knocked up and has a kid+husband now, so that's basically it, I think, send a lot of nudes and marry whoever knocks you up.
(all whites in this story btw)

New England was settled by Puritans. In my experience the actual English are way more chill.

anyone know what the situation is with legalization or decriminalization of prostitution in New York? I've been hearing for at least a year now that the state legislature might make drastic changes to prostitution laws.

Would be pretty sweet living in a peaceful state like CT and having the option to drive next door for a little coom.

You can find something to do no matter where you live, you just have to put in the effort. There isn't some obvious thing in the state that will provide you with entertainment, which means you have to be an interesting person yourself, and have money for hobbies: take up biking (trails not roads), boarding, fishing, kayaking, golfing, etc.
Nice towns to meet friends and dates for lunch/coffee:
*Farmington - Canal Heritage Trail
*Avon
*Simsbury - Metacomet Trail, Talcott Mountain
*Glastonbury
*Barkhamsted - reservoir
*Middletown - restaurants, arts, food
*New Haven - restaurants, arts, food
*Coastline from Clinton to Old Saybrook
*Niantic - old famous book store
*Fairfield county in general is interesting
*UCONN - Dairy bar, Haunted Depot
*Go for a drive - Google: "Connecticut scenic roads"
*Fall things: Apple picking, pumpkin patch, cider farms, leaf peeping, hiking
*The Big E is coming up next month (it's awesome, def check it out)

Yes, Blue Back Square and West Hartford in general is nice, Elizabeth park has a walkable garden and places to eat, we just had CTCon a few weeks ago.
>>2295933

Tinder, like everyone else.

Those who say CT is boring are typically boring themselves or poor. Personally, I'd only ever live here or Mass.
>>
>>2299372
Bridgeport Anon, where do you usually hangout? I need to find some stuff to do in this city.

I have a rich friend who's been living full time with his family in Woodbury, CT since the covid lockdowns started and he's lost his mind with painting Warhammer 40k figurines
there's nothing to do in connecticut

Tinder isn't that great for older folks in CT. Most women in their thirties are married. The ones who aren't are usually fat single moms or mentally unstable.

Every person I know who has left CT has not regretted it.
>>

Maybe you should stop being a degenerate living to coom, maybe that's why you always crying out in pain about how unsatisfying it is, find God or some higher purpose or healthy activity rather than simp for blown out diseased whores

>>2307914
I'm not looking for a hook-up on Tinder. I genuinely want to find a life partner to settle with. Someone weird like me and sort of nerdy, but not a 300 pound whale. Is that too much to ask for?

I don't even know where to look for someone like that though because no one has really given me any good suggestions for places to approach women who fit that description.
>>

>Someone weird like me and sort of nerdy, but not a 300 pound whale. Is that too much to ask for?
Yes, if you are living in a simp country like the US, and even more if you're looking for one in male-majority Tinder (another sign of desperate simp coomer culture btw).

CTer here, live in Madison

There’s an okay amusement park lake compounds in Bristol

Mystic aquarium is “okay”

There’s a quaint little ski slope mount southington in my old hometown

Hammonasset beach is pretty famous

Otherwise not much to do. Avoid the big cities they’re death traps
