Nope. I did live somewhere I didn't like living, and yes convenience played a part in it, but I didn't hate it. I hated the drama that sorrounded my life there, at the time, and the painful experiences but the place wasn't terrible for me. Only place I hated was my hometown, Miami. Nowhere in the country I loathe more for living. Hell, I'm visiting in 2 weeks for my birthday and part of me is excited to see my family and have a good time, but the other part is cringing cuz... its Miami.

In addition to the fact that I just don't like small metro areas, OKC is way too conservative and is smack dab in the middle of the ugliest area of the country in terms of natural beauty. I really hope to move somewhere else within the next five years. Honestly, I'm not that hard to please. I don't have to live in paradise. I just want to live somewhere I find tolerable i.e. metro area 1.5-2 million or above and at least moderate politically. I would prefer to be within a day trip of the coast but there are flyover cities I would be perfectly happy in.
Does Houston fit that bill? Harris County is blue-leaning, but not heavily so. Harris County is also much more scenic than OKC, with the bayous, pine forests.
