This is really the most accurate answer ever.

The best part is that it's pretentiousness over… things we're all fairly/commonly aware. For comedic purposes--

Me: What would you like to drink?

Houston friend: Oh… *sigh/eye roll/half drawl* back in Houston (or at home) we have this like perfect mixture of hydrogen and oxygen… I don't think y'all have it here though.

Me: Water? You're describing water. We have water here.

Houston friend: No… *sigh/eye roll/half drawl* I'm pretty sure it's not free.

Me:

Everything is a constant comparison to H-town. I can't stand that generally. Have nothing good to say about where you currently live? Can't adapt? Constantly comparing it to where you used to be/live? Then, frankly, work on taking your ass back to where you came from and stfu.

It may take time, but clearly you (and the people you bore with this) would be happier.
 
Yessss!  I keep my Houston friends at arms length.  Lord they so effing annoying with the "Well here in Houston we have/are the best......."

You are young, single and with no kids...enjoy yourself in Houston. 

...TX has lots of opportunities, take advantage of them. If you are thinking of starting a business, Houston has a lot of support groups for black women business owners as well.

Yup. And there is always something to do in Houston. It is a fun city.

Houston has been increasing their prices unfortunately. 

Medical Center is an expensive area. A 1/1 for $1000 is considered a good price in that area smh.
Try har.com for condons/townhomes, but they are kind of pricey or just google housing with the area codes: 77054 and 77030 (medical center).

Rice Village is nice, but same price as medical center. Rice Village is 10 min from medical center. Downtown and midtown are very close to medical center as well, but sorta the same price range, but you might get lucky googling midtown or downtown apartments.

Pearland area is a suburb and about 20 minutes from medical center. They have affordable priced housing in that area. Try area code 77057 when searching for housing.

Southwest area is very affordable, but it is 30-45 min from medical center. Traffic is horrendous going from southwest to medical center during rush hour though.


PM if you have anymore questions.
