    145 in Dallas is middle class, while 145 in Bay Area is slightly above poverty line.

    This is not an apples to apples comparison. A salary of $145K in Dallas could only compare with about $240k in SF. See this: https://www.bestplaces.net/cost-of-living/dallas-tx/san-francisco-ca/45000

    Job will be better in the bay. Life will be better in Dallas. You choose.

    There is no tech scene in Dallas. 145 there is great though, while it’s bleh here in Bay Area. If you are a TC chaser then come
    To Bay Area and switch companies every 2-3 years

    You can buy a house for $300+ in DFW, while in Bay Area same house will cost you much more.

    If you wanna work in tech then come to Bay Area and get a higher paying job. Otherwise Dallas.
