When I was at age 7, my dad moved the family to a rural community from a city in Southern California. My sister was 16. Brother 14. We still had family in the area, so I would visit there alot and occassionaly spend a week with my grandma down there. After high school, I spent six months attending a college in the San Fernanado Valley region of LA.

All my dad's relatives still live in southern CA and I see them three times a year.

I want to move based that I feel my family is from the area and that I used to live in that area when I was younger, and I feel when I lived in LA for 6 months city life came to. I'd also like a wife who is a SoCal native and even a local of Ventura County.

Can you say that since my family and myself (for a short while) lived in Ventura County that I can say it was a home?

If you feel comfortable in that area and can afford to move and find a job there, it seems like a good idea for you to move.

You can choose to say where home is for you, it really doesn't matter if you have history there or not.

Home is where you make it. Better to do it now before you have married and family obligations than later.

I agree, if you feel it is home, it is home for you.

As long as you can find a job that keeps up with the cost of living go for it.

Home is where the heart is...more power to anyone who wants to live in Ventura. I felt like I lived in my car all the time when I lived in LA, everything was an hour or two away. Commute to work, gym..do you pick one close to work, or home? It was just too complicated for me. I lived in Santa Monica...too much big city life for me.

Yeah, definately not ever going back to LA. I enjoyed my six months there, but I had to leave because my friends were dragging me down. VC is awesome
