(This has been discussed extensively on the forums of CD, especially Pittsburgh.)
The problem is "the midwest" is a terrible descriptor for the region that comprises midland, northern, and appalachian areas.

Hey, I didn't say I agree!

Although there are disparities in the sub-regions of the Midwest, there are cultural similarities that do bind all the Midwestern states.

There are cultural similarities that bind all 50 states. Pennsylvania, New York (Buffalo is often considered "midwest") and Colorado are not the midwest.

Stayed there for a month. I didn't like it. There's too much crime and it's kinda boring.

Can I use one Ive already lived in? If so I will never move back to Las Vegas, the city I grew up in, or Denver where I stayed for three months and left without looking back for a second. Denver and I did not fit at all. Other than places Ive already lived I would have to say I would never move to anyplace West of St Louis/Chicago/Minneapolis. I guess I would consider Seattle but probably would probably still say no.

I also wouldn't ever move to Las Vegas. Dallas, Austin, Houston, Omaha, Oklahoma City, and Kansas City would also be at the top of my least favorite places to live list. Good question.
