I've definitely thought about it but there aren't really any jobs in my field there and its too far from family and friends :/

You are correct about the job situation here in Florida and being too far from family and friends. When I first left where I'm from in NYC it was tough, but I tried moving back a few times and it just didn't feel right, so I'm still looking for a place called "Home". I was laid off in September, no real prospects, I'm looking to leave Florida as soon I figure out where to go...even if there were jobs aplenty I would leave, it's way too hot for way too long for my taste...

I'm orginally from Memphis but have absolutely no desire to live their again, I just go back to visit my family. I spent four years in Indiana and now I'm in Boston. I love Boston and I think it's an awesome city, but I'm tired of winter all together lol.

Mostly love it, sometimes wonder what the heck I'm doing here. Both for the same reason: it's a crazy, crazy place.

The only thing I like about where I live is my house, yard and some of the shopping around here. Other than that, this place has nothing for me. I would be more than happy to discover a niche but after 3 years it hasn't appeared yet. We can't leave for another 3 years. My problem is I can't move back to where I came from and nor do I want to. I don't want to stay here but haven't a clue on where to go next.

It's good to hear someone loves the place they live...too bad you couldn't magically tone down wintertime

I hope so! I wouldn't mind living someplace where the winters are not so bad.

What did you think of indiana? That is where I am now. I just can't fit into the "culture" here.

I like a lot about the SF Bay Area: Stanford, Berkeley (city and Cal), BART, the views of the SF Bay, the views of the Pacific, the drive along Skyline, Marin Headlands, Stinson Beach, HMB, Highway 280, taquerias, great sushi, the ability to fly nearly anywhere in the world, three major cites essentially in one, SF's architecture, the various well-kept suburbs with stories and character, and a low crime rate in most areas.

However, the people often tend to be surly, narcissistic, and even impolite. Not many people seem to smile here, and I live on the peninsula which is, IMO, comparatively friendlier and more laid back than SF proper. As a man with obviously a male perspective, the women here are okay to decent in looks but crappy in attitude. I've met few women here in their 20s that just didn't have some kind of chip on their shoulder.

To be honest, the Bay is good place to make a career move or start. But I can totally see myself in another part of CA (not L.A., unless it's for a "right" job offer) or the West over the next three years. As I say, the Bay would be a damn near perfect place to live...if not for the people.
