I just did. I moved from Portland, OR to Cleveland, Ohio last June. It was a very good move for me. I don't think people should stay in a place that ceases to work for them.

No plans to do so.

Left home ten years ago, been in three different metros since.

Unless there's a drastic work change or something, I don't see a need to.

This isn't paradise for me, but it's at least on the better half of the scale.

Chicago is a good city with large swaths of bad but I think the winters would do me in.

Mine would have to be a region. I've lived all over Southern California, 3 different counties. I really hate to leave the area but it keeps getting worse here. So places like Scottsdale, Dallas and Nashville are on my radar as possible moves in the near future.

Yes, Des Moines is great, but I want to go back to Honolulu so bad. If I can't ever live there again, I will at the very least make plans to die there.

I missed being able to go into a bar, club or restaurant and not smell cigarettes.
I missed honesty and sincere friendliness.

I have the same attitude to NY (except that weather thing...)

Missouri didn't offer anything that I value.
I lived in Louisville, KY and Cincinnati. Yeah, the Midwest wasn't for me, either. (And Louisville is not only a Midwestern city in demeanor for the most part, many of its residents would rather not claim Kentucky as their home.)

Oh god yes. In fact, I can't get out soon enough. In fact, if I wasn't flat broke, I'd already be gone.

I definitely like living in Monterey County and have the convenience of being reasonably close to family and many friends here, but when I retire in 7-10 years I may move 3-4 hours south to the more affordable cities of either Santa Maria, Buellton, or Lompoc. Don't ever want to be too far from the Pacific Coast if I can help it and admit to being spoiled by the weather here!

Fayettenam? I'm guessing that's Fayetteville, NC. Yeah, I don't blame you, either, if that's the case.
