I'm a Type A and husband is a Type B. I'd say we are in a Type B area which is ok with me. I don't like crowded cities where everyone is always in a hurry, lots of traffic and just tooooo many people. I am working on becoming a Type B LOL if that's possible.

I'm a Type A and my DH is a Type B and we moved to a Type B city. I almost pulled my hair out the first year here. Things are very different. Even different from Texas where I live for almost 2 years. Not good or bad just different. I came not trying to change anything (as if that's possible anyway) but ... moving to a smallER area where people are not so receptive to new things sometimes makes them think that's what you are going to try to do when you move there ... change things. So, I went through the fire this last year and half and while there are things I do like for all the reasons other posters stated above plus some, there are the minuses.

All in all, I think the biggest challenge for me is learning the hidden language that exists here - learning the common language of the area. Just because most of us speak English doesn't mean we are always 'hearing' what's actually being said. Imho, if someone looks too different from what someone else is used to, they aren't hearing too awful much of what that person is saying. So, I'm still learning, but at least I'm open to learning.

I absolutely love where my family moved to. I get very nervous and become very shy in new places...but this place i felt none of that. I feel this place is home..even from where i grew up.

I'm a clear type B. I lived for years in a type A place that got more and more intollerable. Now I've moved to a quiet, secure and peaceful type B place. Nobody ever would convince me to go back to socal. I would love to convince the relatives to follow too.

I wish I would have found the courage to leave behind all that was familiar and go to a place I wanted to be a long time ago. I'd encourage anyone who is teeting on the brink to take back your life and make the move.

I used to love it, like the neighborhood and other neighbors, unfortunately my one NDN has ruined it for us and shown himself to be a sociopath who is on a personal quest of hatred against us. Would love to move.

Next door neighbor. It took me a minute too. I'm still trying to get used to the short versions. See; I'm really getting old.

I am very thankful for where and how I was raised but you couldn't pay me enough to live in that stressful rat race again(although I do miss the food).
Lisa, I was raised in N.Jersey, moved to S. Jersey, and now in East Tn too. It was a schock for me too. Sept. will be 2 yrs ,it has taken me time to adjust, but now, I would NEVER go back!I love the mnt views, I love looking over at Clinch mnt lookout! It is beautiful in TN isn't it? P.S. love looking at your photos!I give you much credit! Your home views are breathtaking!
