I would love to move, but I have a job with benefits right now. It's not a great job, but it's a job. It takes a lot of money to up and move to another state, money I don't have. Money really can buy happiness (in the form of freedom).

Thanks 1brokegirl (BTW love your username but, sorry to hear you're stuck because of finances in a place you dislike)

If you were given or had all the support you needed where would you move?

Probably the midwest somewhere (Wisconsin, MN, etc). I am tired of the heat and exhorbitant rents and every want ad stating that you must be bilingual.

I live in a winter climate, but it was only bad this year because we had next to no snow. I'll take the winter tradeoff w/snow for mild weather the rest of the year? Texas!? That is like living on the surface of the sun

awww.. I can definitely relate to the HEAT! I won't be able to stand another scorching summer here, at least the last day or two has been comfortable, but this year I have yet to turn my a/c off for more than a day or two!!

I've been looking hard at Grand Rapids, Mi and its surrounding neighborhoods, it seems to have a lot on my list of the ideal location for me...

Tiluha, I've been to FL three times- to DisneyWorld. But we always dreamed of moving there (FL) due to the fact that we hate the long winters here in WY. We have lots of sun, there aren't a lot of cloudy days, but we do have times that are below zero even with the sun shining! I worry though that we would move to FL and then would the heat bother us?? We've been there in April, May and October and even though we had some pretty warm humid days on those trips, I'm guessing maybe we didn't feel the full force of it. I spent the first six years of my life in IL and I know it gets humid there. As a teen I remember going back to visit and taking a shower, then stepping outside and being completely soaked again by the humidity. We hate the dryness here, but I worry we would grow to hate the humidity. Where is that perfect place???!!! I'm going to keep looking.

The heat and humidity in Florida can be pretty brutal. That being said, some people do adjust to it.

It's true that once you step out into it after taking a shower you will be completely soaked in sweat! The humidity can be so bad that if you don't run your a/c it can wreak havoc in your house (i.e. mold, mildew, dry food storage) and just a general feeling of "ick". The heat can also do damage to the interior of your car if you don't have covered parking, the sun and heat has melted and deformed plenty of dashboards.

At its peak it gets so hot that your car will feel and is hotter than an oven and the steering wheel is often too hot to touch until the a/c cools it off, that is if... 1) you have working a/c 2) time to sit while your car cools off 3) you don't mind feeling like you're roasting or 4) the feeling of slow suffocation...

I know the same can be said for frigid temps and also having to dig your car out of the snow, but in my opinion dealing with the extreme heat and humidity is a whole different animal...it changes people's attitude...

It may be great when you first get here, but you may find that after awhile the heat just goes on for too long and the cooling off period is way too short and you find yourself longing for the cold...

Exactly what I worry about. And yes, we will find our spot someday!
