    What region or state do you prefer to live in or what reason? I lived in New Jersey and New York both for a total of about ten years. I hated every second of it. Whenever I visit up there I hate how things are so cold. I mean they aren't mean but they ain't nice either. What I love about the South and especially in Florida is how people are usually always so friendly to you regardless of whether or not they really like you. I've had pleasant conversations with people who I hated. We both knew the score but there was really no point in being assholes to each other in public.

    What I love the most about Florida or at least Central Florida is that driving from just one city to the next is like a fifteen to thirty minute drive. You really get to have time to enjoy the ride. I mean because I work in Melbourne it annoys the hell out of me that the bus ride is two and a half hours but when Im driving I mind it less, lol. And as much as it gets on my nerves sometimes I find it quirky that it could be raining like a tear in a big girl's tampon but to the north of you and the south of you it's dryer than an episode of Good Neighbors.

    What about you?

    I lived in Indiana for seven years until my mom married a guy from Florida and I lived down there for 15 years till I moved back to my home state of Indiana. I love it here because you can fram here.

    I'd like to go back to New Jersey but I'd also like to go somewhere else...I've thought of living in New York, like White Plains or somewhere outside of the city since it's so close to home but.............the Tappan Zee is very creepy to me and I refuse to use it so home wouldn't be as close as I'd like it to be hahaha that's all I really want is to be close to home icon_redface.gif

    I'd love to live in NYC, if I had financial and artistic freedom. Seattle would be fun for awhile. Or maybe just whore around LA.

    Ahhh, America, land of the free and gay.

    Although I worked there for 3 years, I prefer the Southern accent (Virginia).

    Visited NYC and Boston a lot, not really into it. Lived in San Francisco before, now I'm back in Southern Cali. I really love the LA-OC metro area, ideally I like the West L.A., Culver City, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills area. I'm all about the white picket fences, with 1 dog, 1 kid settled down suburbs home with my man !!!

    i have only been to the four corner states, but seattle seemed the most like canada, so what i am used to. florida was scary, LA was just boring, an NYC although fun, lacks gardening. haven't been to other places but based on the virgin sacrificial 20 year old boys the mormons keep sending to the door, I am guessing UTAH would be nice if they ever get their act together.


    Why was Florida Scary?

    West, west, west...

    Grew up in Iowa and lived in Boston 6 years. I've found something to appreciate everywhere, but nothing really compares

    California's not overrated...sorry, it really isn't.icon_smile.gif

    I'm a born and raised New Yorker, and I plan to stay here for the rest of my life. To me, the rush and feeling of so much going on outside yourself is inspiring, and I wouldn't have it any other way. icon_smile.gif

    Been to a few locations. But my favorites have been Philadelphia...So Cal....Love the season changes that happen in the midwest.
    Always wanted to try DC area, Boston, NYC. Though I doubt I could afford living any of of them.

    Been living in the great state of Texas for 23 years and know I will love to live here for the next 23. Love everything! Big city life and an hour away form the country. Got my whole family all over the state. Love the ppl, love my privacy, my hunting, love my land, the weather. Today woke up to 28 degrees now it's 1am and it's 65 degrees. More likely Xmas will be in the upper 60s.....just love Texas...

    Your country is the worst first-world country on the planet and the only place worth even considering is NYC because it's the only place that's anywhere near as diverse as Toronto is.

    Born and raised here in the southwest specifically northern New Mexico and northern Arizona. Need my sunlight, dry air, desert, and I can't forget of course the red and green chilli you can only get in New Mexico. The thought of not having is scary to think about icon_eek.gif

    You obviously have not been to Miami, New Orleans or L.A.

    I've been to Miami. New Orleans doesn't seem interesting in the least, and L.A. is apparently full of pretentious fags and literal shit in the streets.

    You're just intent on starting shit? Canada is cold, boring and America is better cause we start with the first letter of the alphabet.

    A larger city in the midwest. I love the people there, the sense of both community and individuality that you get in equal parts, I love seasons, and I love scruffy guys icon_lol.gif.

    Fingers crossed for my move to Chicago!
