I feel pretty much the same way about where I live. I was smitten when I first met her, and now we're getting settled down. Though I have a bit of a track record for infidelity at times as other cities pull at my heart strings. You could call it wonder lust, though I'm still deeply in love with Albuquerque.

My relationship with Portland is sort of just a "friends with benefits" thing at this point... She knows I've got eyes for other cities.

I wish I could feel the same about my city, Corpus Christi. I grew up here, so I do have some "love" for it. But, its basically a like/dislike relationship. It has the potential to be so much more than it is, but is a lot better than what it has been, or than other areas... It is definitely better than anywhere else south of San Antonio.

Either way, I do plan on moving away from here when I retire in 20 years or there-abouts'. I want a large city with four seasons and mountains. I think I have Denver in my future.

I consider Los Angeles two be a very beautiful and MISUNDERSTOOD mistress, who happens to have complete control of my heart.

San Francisco is cool too but, she smells funny...

....so i think its more than me looking through rose colored glasses.
The place has the same affect on me. I can't wait to get out of FL. I am strongly trying to get back there or else, Austin or San Diego. I kind of miss the seasons, though. I think for some reason, native Chicago and MI, and northern Ohioans have more love and appreciation for Louisville than longtime natives. That said, it seems to be the kind of city where some of the young people move away, but they often return in their 30s and 40s.

The renaissance and cultural dominance of the place in its region in the last 3 years has been phenomenal.

It seems like most people have affection for their hometown. Same here.

After I left Kansas City, I began to realize how much character the city has: hills, bbq, art deco skyscrapers and so on. I've also just recently started to get into jazz, so having KC roots kind of makes me feel proud.

I also love my other hometown which is a small township about an hour or so away from Kansas City.

I wouldn't say I'm IN love with it (my emotions aren't THAT strong), but I do love it. I've been here two years now, and I'm pretty sure I could be happy living here for quite some time to come.
