(Closed) How far do you live from your hometown?

posted 8 years ago in Home
  • poll: How far do you live from your hometown?

    What? LEAVE paradise? I love my hometown and have always lived here and always will.

    I still live in or near my hometown, though it's not paradise. I do love the local pizza joint.

    I live in another state/province/shire, but it borders the one where I grew up.

    I live in the same general area as where I grew up (Northeast, MidAtlantic, Midlands)

    I grew up in a very different area from where I live now.

    I live in a different country.

    I live in a different country in a different part of the world.

    I live on Mars, actually.

    I grew up in New Jersey, living in Tennessee right now. (moved down for school, stayed for fiancé) can’t wait to get back north!! Fiance has a year and a half left of school and while he’s happy to move after he graduates, I think he’ll have a job offer with his current internship too good to refuse πŸ™

     

    ETA: I do REALLY miss the local pizza. And Dunkin Donuts. And Shoprite. And Key City Diner.

    I’m about four hours away from my hometown. Still technically the same area (Northeast), but it’s so different that it feels farther, I guess.

    Grew up in NJ. Moved down to NC 2 years ago when my Fiance got a job down here. I will always love him for getting me out of Jersey! πŸ™‚ SOOOO much happier here! I feel like I was set free! πŸ™‚ I’m not a city girl. lol

    Same town, can’t say I even enjoy the local pizza joint. lol But we started out here and have kids in different homes in the same area so we are stuck. We want to move South but we can’t imagine being away from the kids while they are still in school. It kind of depends on what the decide to do on wether we leave the area later on. I don’t want to be a long distance grandparents either.

    I have lived in my hometown (in central(ish) NC) my whole life, minus 4 years for college when  I moved to eastern NC.  I am about to move to VA so I’m in a bordering state, just 3 hours from my hometown/parents/family.  I am equal parts terrified, sad, excited, and happy to be moving with my husband.  We’ll come back here in about 4 years (or are planning on it) but I think this move out of my comfort zone will be really good for me and both of us together.  Time for me to fly the nest briefly and learn a little bit about living away from family…then we’ll be back to live in NC forever πŸ™‚

    I grew up in a small town in rural Wisconsin, I now live in the biggist city in Wisconsin.  I live about 3 hours away from my ‘hometown’, not too far, but just far enough.  I love it here, I was never a big fan of rural, small town life.

    I live 1100 miles away from my hometown. I’m not sad about leaving at all, but I’m sad that my parents live so far away and that they’re not considering retiring closer to me. (You get to choose where to retire, you don’t get to choose where the jobs are).

    I’m still in the general area of my hometown, or what I guess I would consider my hometown, but poor SO, we’re almost 2 hours away from his hometown! The things he’s done for me… *swoon*. Haha.

    • Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast

    We are an hour drive from my childhood home, and an hour and 15 minute drive from Mr. LK’s childhood home. So we’re far enough away to give us space, but close enough to friends and family to visit whenever we want to. And the move to farm country was the best decision we’ve made, other than the decision to get married… cuz THAT was an awesome decision. πŸ™‚

    Both Fiance and I grew up in the same town.  Both sets of our parents still live there.  We now live one happy little town away….literally about a mile away.  

    Another 2 or 3 towns away would be preferrable…..or 5 or 6.  Lol.  But we love our house and town!

    • Wedding: June 2010 - New York Botanical Garden

    I’m about 30 minutes from where I grew up – I guess I would call my hometown one of the NYC suburbs, close to the city, and I now I live in Manhattan.  Close enough to my parents, and most of friends have moved back to the area, so it’s nice that we’re all around. The farthest I have lived is 4 hours away, and that was really hard!
