Not in the least bit, especially Boston but I suppose because it is the 1 of the 5 I am most familiar with and is the most similar to my own city albeit worse location and weather. I love Boston but if I were to move it would be for a different climate.

I would love to live in a warmer climate on The West Coast or The South for a while but Seattle and Portland do not immediately come to mind (although my sister recently visited Portland and loved it). I would love to live in The Bay Area but I'm pretty sure I'd want to live in Oakland over SF although I haven't been to Oakland yet. I would never pay the price to live in SF even if I could easily afford it. San Diego has really interested me lately though.

Austin seems like an awesome place to visit but don't think I could live there. New Orleans seems more my style but I haven't visited yet. I know I intend to always return to The East Coast but I've kind of been itching to live somewhere new lately.

I'm a twenty-something and I have no desire to live in any of those cities. I'm perfectly content in San Diego. If I absolutely had to move, I would probably pick Portland or Seattle. The other ones are nice to visit but for various reasons I wouldn't consider living there.

I don't envy anyone living in those cities. Most of them I've never been to. What is stopping me from moving to any of them - a complete lack of interest!

No; living in Chicago the only city I ever really get jealous of is LA.

No... I honestly don't. DH & I are in our 20s and we chose to move to St. Louis after he got out of the Marine Corps, mainly due to the low cost of living coupled with wonderful cultural amenities. Although I love Seattle, and it would be my second or third option as a city to live in, the cost of living (mainly housing) almost completely rules it out as a permanent location.

So, no, I'm very, very happy with St. Louis

Don't be jealous! Chicago is WAY better than LA (In my personal opinion anyway!)

Haha, I guess I'll be the first to admit that I am! Every time another one of my friends moves up to Portland I feel like I'm missing the party, but then I realize I like it here and that I really just miss them!

Not in the least. I have no desire to live in any of the cities you listed.

The only cities I even think about other then the one I currently live is LA and Chicago and that's only because I have previously live in both.
