The Dallas/Fort Worth area is one of my favorites. I have never lived there, but I have traveled to there often for work and pleasure. I use to work for BNSF Railroad, headquartered in north Fort Worth, but I worked out of the Topeka office.
Many of my friends made the move from Topeka to your area to follow their job with BNSF, but I was not one of them. I also took almost three months of training broken up into about four trips at the UNT in Denton.
If I had been single, I would have loved to make the move.
I am not an active user on forums and social networks such as this, but I do log in often to see what is happening. I am such a slow writer though, that most of my time is spent reading instead of participating.
Hope you find some good active friends though and I am usually around, just quiet.

"Happy Holidays is a good enough saying for anyone at Christmas time. I support the phrase "happy holidays" rather than the bullshit most Americans were taught. Let's go back in time to look at meanings here. "Holidays"…"
