    Overall a good place, but I wish it was a little more progressive

    Also wish I could find a few more liberals here, everyone seems to be a conservative Republican

    Would also be nice to find more gay people here too LOL

    I moved to South Florida for a job or otherwise would have never chosen this area. While the ocean is beautiful and the weather is amazing (in the winter), the people are worse than anywhere I've ever lived. I grew up in Ohio, lived in Orlando, Martha's Vineyard, New York City and Portland, Oregon. Never have I experienced such shallow, conniving, untrustworthy and just mean people than I have here. It's really disheartening. Otherwise, I like it. icon_smile.gif

    we don't live there, but right now really hate South Dakota.

    ... just ask YngHungSFSD, better yet, go look at his topic about being terminated for being in a gay bar.

    The rents. For what I pay for a 2 bedroom apartment could get you a mansion in many other cities. But, of course, that would mean I'd live in a grand but most likely not as interesting place... icon_smile.gif

    The State One lives in is Victoria. Multiculturalism, has help the Suburbs of Melbourne too be one of the best Cities in the world to eat out in, as well it is one of the worlds most livable cities too.

    Multiculturalism, is also becoming it's down fall, as there are times One feels like one is in a foreign country, because as an Aussie, One feels the minority.

    Where are these conniving people? All I've met are really nice people since I moved here. Of course, some of them are a little shady, but hey, that's South Florida.

    TX, USA

    Chain store/chain restaurant strip malls.

    Bible thumpers.

    Massive factory-agriculture operations.

    Wal-Mart and the resulting death of small Texas towns.

    Cornyn and Hutchison (Senators still living in 2003).

    Big SUVs (still).

    The Dallas Cowboys (AKA rehab for wayward footballers).

    Drivers. Seriously, they'll pull any life-threatening move just to save 30 seconds and continue their phone conversation. They drift about as if their lane was 100' wide too.

    Maybe they're all up here in Palm Beach County? Or, maybe I just have really bad luck meeting people?

    Philadelphia:

    I don't know how to describe it, but there's just something "not right" with this place - I can't put my finger on it.


    Cue X-files theme

    Lynchburg, Va.

    I live in what I consider to be the most homophobic state there is...and I live in the town where Jerry Falwells legacy lives on...does that even begin to give you an idea of what life is like here?

    ugh!!!!

    well there's certainly that element here of guys who have never really lived "out in the world" but yet think they know more than they really do. as a result they tend to have a lot of pissy attitude to try to compensate for that...it's really unattractive. The kind of guys that are like in their late 30's or 40's who have lived here their whole life, never gone out in the world, still struggling with their identity, and usually trying to "hook up" behind their "boyfriend's" back with someone for unprotected/bare sex, while professing not to be that way.
    I guess there is a certain element of small minded, not-so-nice attitude here.

    But that element could be found anywhere I guess (it's just more apparent here) ...so I suppose it's not that bad really.
