1) Current City and State = Los Angeles, CA

2) Why do you want to leave = Los Angeles sucks. I thought I loved it here growing up until I decided to get married and wanted to bu ya house and start a family. This is not the place for such activities.

3) Where In Colorado and Why = Colorado Springs, Fort Collins. These are beautiful areas close to the mountains with seemingly same neighborhoods and high qualities of life.

4) 2nd and 3rd Place States = Oregon and Washington

5) What’s currently holding you back from moving = Money for a home down-payment. The fact that I've never even been to these places (fixing that soon) and my wife's inhibitions.

6) Anything else you want to tell us that we dont know? = I work in advertising, but I can take it or leave it. I guess one of the hold ups is the job market. I wouldn't know what to do. Although I'm not sure what to do here in LA either. We're not looking for a big place or much at all, just a home to call our own so we can start a family in a nice place with good values.
