My sis lives in Florida and has been looking for over 18 months so I am aware of your job market. Florida's unemployment is about 8% Seattle-Washington's almost 7% and climbing each week.
There are jobs here, but many people applying for them. Our winter weather can be dreary, traffic bad and our cost of living is high. Seattle is a hard place to make friends and hook up with dating. As the Times recently said, it is a difficult place to connect.
I've been here 31 years and it is my home and I'll stay no matter what but I have a home, a wife and two kitties. And I am unemployed...again, as I have been off and on over the last 8 years.
Apply for jobs here but keep looking where you are. Keep the faith, keep trying and work at being happy. WORK AT IT
