In the city, but where I live used to be a small village that just got sucked in by London 🙂

Country. I live on the edge of a rural village so I have a handful of neighbours and when people in London capture foxes and save them by releasing them into the “wild”, they release them behind our house.

City in the mid-west but its tiny compared to the cities ive lived in-in the UK and so isolated. Were 90 miles from the next nearest big city and surrounded by farmland. Its nice though, crime is low and everyone is friendly.

Boring, upscale ‘burbs. Where everybody is the same and the main focus is getting our kids to overachieve. Where we are shocked if not every kid gets a trophy *gasp* and bad things don’t happen here. It’s nauseating at many, many times. I would love some diversity of thought even.

City in the Midwest.  I hate it.  I grew up in a more rural area outside of a smaller city.  I miss the privacy that smaller towns/land have.  When we buy a house next year, we are going to go further out into the suburbs.  Hopefully we’ll be able to have a nice/big lot, with lots of trees around it.

I grew up on a farm but currently live in our capital city. I hate the traffic, noise and neighbours everywhere. We are currently house hunting and are looking at rural country homes with a few acres of land outside of the city. I want privacy and peace and quiet where I can grow veggies and re-home rescued battery hens. That’s my dream.

Mid-sized city on the East Coast, in a great mixed use neighborhood with stores, restaurants, one of the best public parks in the US with mostly townhomes, but a few apartment buildings as well.  No single family homes in the neighborhood, though.

On Saturday we are moving to a suburb consisting of older homes.  I’m super excited but also a tiny bit sad.  Our parking woes will be over, but I’ll no longer be able to walk to the gym and the grocery store. I’ve been an urban dweller for 8 awesome years.

Big city in Texas. Originally from socal! So pretty much only exposed to city and suburbs. Well what I consider suburbs a lot of Texans consider urban so… I guess I’m just a city girl? Can’t imagine living so far away from so many restaurants! I LIVE TO EAT🤣😋

Foreverblonde345 :  lol “where bad things don’t happen here”… and going off experience, I’m sure there’s a ton of drugs and parents pretending like it doesn’t exist.

We have always lived in the burbs. I grew up on 30 acres in the middle of nowhere, but it was one of the fastest growing counties in the country during that time. Then me and Darling Husband moved to another one of the fastest growing counties and it was very affluent suburb. However, we moved to a small beach town a little over a month ago and love it!

On the 33rd floor of a downtown apartment building in the largest city in the US.

I severely underestimated how annoying it would be to wait for an elevator anytime I want to leave my home or how frustrating it would be to live in a studio as an adult. No realt complaints, though… can’t beat the location and I love living in a big city.

Suburb in one of the biggest metros of the Midwest. 

I love it. I love how quiet it is, you wave at people as you pass them, your neighbors talk to you about how best to care for your lawn. I’m 20 minutes from downtown, I have a wonderful mall, all kinds of shopping and restaurants.

We live in the outskirts of a small-but-growing Southern city. There’s a university here, and plenty of good restaurants, breweries, shopping, etc. However; I was raised in a very rural town in Alabama and would like to move back out into the country.

Pretty big city on the East Coast. Lots of historical stuff around here and a great foodie spot too! 

I’m originally from an upscale suburb of THE city, moved to a smaller suburb in a different state when I was a kid, then when to college in the south.

jewellight : Country. I’m about 10 miles from the town of my mailing address and 3 hours from the nearest real city.  Love having a few acres of land, decent immediate neighbors, fewer dogs carrying on and hearing the river at night during snowmelt.  It’s a real rich man/poor man area in general though, so we’ve heard rumors of meth-head neighbors further on, breakins, literal crazy people. Our next door neighbor sends warning shots to the deer in his yard.  And yet I’ve never felt unsafe.  I must be one of the crazy ones, lol.
