I was simply asking what type of area he prefers. Obviously not everyone likes Boston. If you hate it, I could care less. No city or object is universally loved by all, and I don't expect that to be the case. However, there's nothing wrong with asking why someone doesn't like a certain place, is there?

Miami
Houston
Atlanta
Phoenix
Baltimore

I don't like being hot, and like snow. Baltimore gets thrown in because it never crosses my mind.

I just find a lot of big cities to be overrated. They may have a lot to offer, but a lot of that is stuff I don't want/need. I find small cities to be the ideal mix of city and nature. I need some natural scenery; I don't like to just look at buildings. I hate cold and snow as well, so I prefer Sunbelt cities. There are some big cities I like, though. The reason I picked big cities for this list is because the title was asking us to pick major cities. The reason Boston stands out as a place I dislike is because that just happens to be where I am now, so I talk about it more. The Northeast is a bad place for me anyway because I am starting college soon and only 5% of entry level jobs in my career field are in the Northeast.

That's cool. I actually have a couple friends who prefer the outdoors to the big city too.

What field are you going to be studying?

While I'm not speaking for the guy who lives in the New York area, a lot of people find their own hometowns unliveable (Is that a word?) and I'm one of those people who thinks my town is not a good town to live in.

Yes, but you spelled it wrong.

I agree though; With my hometown, I love it, but when I'm here, I hate it.
