But it really depends on what your education, income, social level and environment is like in DC and if you comfortably venture out of your social circles.You mentioned professional AA men but if you are just as happy and comfortable around regular blue collar or government workers and just want a simple life, Dallas might work well for you.
If living the "DC life" or having other professionals around you that are African American, Dallas might not be the place.Perhaps going online and joining some dating sites and hooking up a few Dallas dates before you arrive and find out the happening hang outs and see if you can deal with the environment before making the move. D Magazine : Why Young Black Professionals Are Wary of Dallas Oh: And to answer your questions: Suggestions on areas to live? In order to answer this: where do you live now or what areas in DC do you prefer for living? Which airport will you work near--DFW or Love Field so you can avoid traffic issues?If near DFW, Las Colinas is an area that is mixed and some single professional African Americans will frequent if they are transplants.however, the fact that you asked about specifically dating an AA man, leads me (possibly incorrectly) to believe that you may have a slight preference for AA people primarily, in which case check out the Bishops Arts District and other parts of north Oak Cliff which is south of downtown.Any of the south suburbs would be slightly heavier on AA population than the northern suburbs, but then you lose the "cool vibe" of walking to restaurants, etc.
