I feel your pain. I love the city, but we just can’t afford to live here for much longer. We’ll be moving right after the wedding to a little podunk town in the middle of nowhere, and while it will be nice to be closer to my horse, I’m really going to miss the city life.

@noopnoop – Out of curiosity, where in Ontario? I’m in Ottawa but from Halifax, and in the winter I find it hard!! It’s been so cold here the last week and I just want to move home lol.

Just saw the part about a Toronto suburb, yuck! I refuse to move to Toronto… no offense to the T.O ladies, that big of a city is just not for me!

I actually really love living in Oakland.  We live in a great neighborhood and so much of what we like to do is within walking distance.  What I hate is that we will not be able to afford to buy a house for several more years if we want to stay where we are, and apartment living is starting to get old.  Plus, Oakland’s schools are pretty wretched, so once we have school age kids we will have to face the conundrum, do we move or pay for private schools?

Being a Miami Native, I hated it when my family moved us to Chicago, so I ended up going back to Florida for undergrad… and then hated the weather/storms etc. So now I’m in grad school in the desert southwest (Phoenix, AZ) and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t deal with snow/rain well. But it’s much easier to deal with when it only occurs sporadically.

I don’t hate where I live but I can relate to the no friends thing.  I moved from Philly to Seattle a year ago and it’s been hard trying to meet new people.  It sucks.

@noopnoop Where in Toronto do you live? I live north of the city, but I have a pup as well. We could totally plan a puppy play-date!

Although I have to say, I’m not a huge fan of the area I live in either… We know a lot of people and have a pretty good dog community, but we are pretty isolated and don’t have a car. It’s a huge pain to go grocery shopping and out on date nights. I’m excited for the summer because I think we will be moving more into the city… Which means take out and shopping all around!! Wait… that might be a bad thing…

My Fiance and I moved for his schooling and we both hate where we are. It’s been hard to make friends (FI has made some friends at school but most of them are married with little children and aren’t able to do too much out of school). I have made some friends at my work but like someone else said, the city I live in is very spread out and my friends all live far away from each other and from us so it’s hard to see them a lot of the time, too. We are moving back up to my hometown after the wedding and I can’t wait.

I hate where I live too!! I’m in Lexington, KY and missing sunny Florida where I was born and have lived my whole life. I am stuck here in KY until August when my lease expires!

I haven’t decided if I like it here for not.  I have no one to talk to which makes it a lot worse here.

I used to hate the town I live in, but it’s slowly starting to get better. I guess I just dislike it now… I would love to move back to Portland but my husband isn’t really sold on the idea.

Can I say this here? I actually love where I live. Well, except for the drivers and the fact that you HAVE to have a car or live right downtown. It’s sunny here 300 days of the year, we have plenty of outdoor things to do, our economy is bouncing back (90k people moved here last year), and the schools can be pretty good.
