Thank you so much for chiming in guys, I will certainly make use of the mentioned FB group and its resources !!!

It is encouraging to see that the group of FSP supporters is voluntarily diverse, and there are single men in their 30s to potentially connect with socially, as I have no family in the US.
I am moving from the communist state of Illinois (Chicago), by the way, where I have lived for the past few years.
How windy is it in the South NH?

There are a lot of singles in their 30s (mostly male) in the FSP, and they tend to be located in the Manchester-Nashua corridor or around Keene. We have a fair number of immigrants as well: Russia, Brazil, UK, and South Africa come to mind. For finding housing, in addition to the usual resources like Craigslist, I would recommend this Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/123673281001783/?ref=br_rs .

Hey Kolpakoff,

Just wanted to chime in, even though I don't really fit what you're looking for. I live in my own place in Hampstead, about 1 hr (without traffic) from Boston, where I work. I'm also single, and only moved to NH last year from MA, where all my family and most of my friends still live. Not sure about any immigrant communities in the surrounding area. But feel free to contact me if you need to a place to stay for a night or two. It is a bit weird when everyone is moving here with their family, and you're just rolling up by your onesy. I've managed to meet some people and settle in a bit. Doesn't happen overnight, but it's not all that bad/difficult.

Send me a message if you want, and I'll try to answer any other questions you may have.

Keene's weather is about the same as where where I grew up in western New Jersey. It can get pretty darn cold in the morning during a month or two of the year- but that's why you got this thing called a heater. Use it! The summers are relatively mild, but it does get warm during a few months of the year just as it gets cold during a few months of the year. An air conditioner is recommended, but as someone who hates heat I did manage to get by without one for a good percentage of the hot season last summer just fine.

Talking rents... I don't think Keene is that expensive. But I'm also probably coming from a relatively well off and more expensive area. However it's nothing compared to places I've visited. A small 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment in Seattle is apparently going for $2,600 these days. That's more than my mortgage in Keene! I rented a relatively small 1 bedroom apartment apartment in New Jersey (the living room was pretty decent size actually, but it was just 1 living room and 1 bedroom, and walk through kitchen) for $900 3-4 years ago. I'd be shocked if you couldn't find something a lot cheaper than that in Keene. A quick look on Craigslist I found a place for a little less than $900 which included heat and other stuff that was a lot nicer than what I was renting back in New Jersey. I know people who rent rooms here for a lot lot less than this and I suspect whole apartments near, but not in Keene.

Greetings, fellow Libertarians!

I am planing to move to NH  sometime in June/July, depending how quickly I will sort the situation out with the job in Boston.
I am starting to look for a fellow libertarian roommate. I am willing to pay up to $600 rent for a separate room per month; will need a parking spot, if garage then is a plus. I will mostly work from home and will need some ample space for a computer table and very fast and reliable internet connection, and the area needs to be located within 1 hr -1hr 30 min commute to Boston ( Nashua, Salem etc). Does anyone know anyone who could be interested to be a roommate?

I saw many people are moving with families and I have concerns whether the community is welcoming for a single man in his 30s.
I am also an immigrant from Eastern Europe and I speak 4 languages. How big is the immigrant community within the free state project supporters, did anyone count countries/languages represented?

Thanks to anyone who is able to provide any guidance, opinion  and recommendations!
This is my first post here and I am looking forward to becoming an active participant.

I'm in the Nashua area and also working in software. There's a few tech companies in the Nashua/Manchester area, a couple in Concord, and several more down in MA between Westford and Burlington. Obviously, there's always working in Boston, too. The commute into Boston is about an hour one-way, which sucks, but there's bus and train options that make it slightly less awful. So, you could easily live in NH and work in MA. It'd mean paying MA income tax, unfortunately. But, it's a necessary evil for a lot of folks.

I doubt you'll find many Free Staters interested in Maine. It's a lot less free than New Hampshire, and the whole idea of the Project is to free New Hampshire. :) That said, a lot of the features you praise in NW Maine are also found in northern New Hampshire.

I was for Macron. In general I am for immigration. If immigrants end up on welfare, cut welfare. Macron is also more free-market than Le Pen, who favors keeping France's system of repressive labor regulation and also wants to enact new tariffs. Macron is no libertarian, by a long shot, but at least he would make a few reforms to free up the labor market.

P.S. I have some interracial couples as friends I can try to put you in touch with if you want to hear what their experiences have been.
