I dont hate where we live now, but I once lived somewhere that I hated. I did everything that I could to move but it did take some time. 

I am from the midwest and still live here, do you mind sharing where you live? that way, maybe I could suggest some things that you could do that could help until you can move πŸ˜€

I dont take offense to your opinion, but I personally love the midwest. Maybe, it is because that is all I know. LOL I love the city that we are in but I do really wish that our commutes were not so time consuming (but that is what city traffic and cta is like) but with our great jobs it is worth it. I do wish I could talk Darling Husband into moving closer to downtown but it si not going to happen…

I love where I live, but we’ve grown out of it.  It’s a college town, and we are 28 and 32, so it’s getting old. The evening life is all about partying til stupid. We hope to move in July but might have to stay 1 more year. 

At least there is a lot to do outdoors. I’d go crazy somewhere like you are describing.

I’ve been depressed my whole life. I’ve never felt like I was “home”. My SO are going to move until I feel most at ease. Right now I live in one of the most expensive counties in CA, but it’s great, just expensive. It’s a very liberal community with mostly family run businesses.

I hate where I live. Mr. Coyote and I are planning to move within a year after the wedding in hopes of a better life for both of us. I think I’m looking forward to our move more than our wedding!

Here, me! I only moved here last summer to live with Fiance and thought it was a dream. I vacationed here before and the beaches are great and the weather is good most of the year.. but I never realised how truly boring it is. Especially when it’s winter and all the tourists are gone. There’s basically nothing to do here except for super expensive stores and restaurants. And 90% of the people our age move away because the whole area is geared only towards tourists. 

I’m not fluent in the language yet, I can’t find a job because it’s the country with the second-worst economy in europe and I have no perspective here. Don’t even get me started on the people. I used to think living somewhere with people that smile all the time and are laid back was great, but since I came here I haven’t met one honest person that cares about anything but themselves. Even when they’re supposed to be professionals and you pay them to do something, you can’t expect to get it done right nevermind in a timely manner. Nothing is taken serious, everything is about appearance and judging other people, especially women. 

I already told Fiance that I can’t see myself living here forever, but he has some money tied up in a business and we can’t give up on that yet. I’m trying to take it day by day now and learned to do some serious research before even moving to another city, let a different country.

@cbee:  oh, interesting. I go to Madison for business trips like once maybe twice a year. Have you heard of Epic (Healthcare Software company)? They are technically in Verona. But, I stay in Madison and I actually love going to Madison πŸ˜€ Darling Husband also tries to go with me when I go too because he likes it. We actually debated on moving there but instead came to Chicago. Wisconsin is on my top places to live. So, it is VERY interesting to hear you opinions. I got the idea that Madison was a very bike and walk friendly city. Is that not the case? Maybe it is just the area I go to when I go there (downtown)? One of the things I liked about it was that you always saw people outside biking, walking, jogging and playing sports. They have really cool co-op grocery stores and resturants that we have been too. It seems very earthy and cool to me. Maybe we just only saw what we wanted to or where in the only area like that? I do understand the party town thing though. That is one thing Darling Husband and I talked about. We are not drinkers at all. We are actually very “quiet” people and odnt like to be around loud parties or people. Dont get me wrong, we go to parties and like to have a good time. But we go to “grown up” dinner and wine parties not keg parties in a college dorm or the woods. LOL 

Oh and you are so right about Chicago. I feel like I am always walking places and i LOVE it. I love walking and seeing a lot of people on the street too. I am from a small town where you have to drive everywhere, it is very nice to not have to do that!

I HATE where we live, we have moved to a really dodgy part of Glasgow, kids smashing windows, drug addicts screaming in the middle of the night, loud neighbours, crazy high crime rate, I could go on and on…

BUT it’s allowing us to save for a down payment on a mortgage much quicker than we could elsewhere, so I look at it as a means to an end, most of the time….


…NOT when gypsies stole all our water pipes…. No, not a joke.

I’m not a fan of where we are living right now, its a town just outside Chicago and we moved here because Darling Husband got an internship. We have no friends or family here and that has been really hard on us, me especially since at least Darling Husband gets to interact with more people than I do. The cost of living here is way more than what we are used to, and the people are so stuck up! The good news is, we are moving back home to Michigan, where we belong, in SEVEN days!!!! πŸ˜€ ahh I can’t wait…
