I was thinking between the Columbus or Roanoke area but then Raleigh seemed like a better long term option. Tbh, the biggest reason why I'm leaning towards Raleigh is bc my dad will likely be moving in with me and he has a staffie and Raleigh area seems to have the most choices for restricted breeds. I know it sounds like a dumb reason but he's so stressed about the dog and cries thinking he might have to put it down or surrender.
As for me, cheap, safe, not locked in the state (like Texas) and no regular severe weather. I don't really care about anything else. Every nice suburb is pretty much the same. I just work and live until my time is up.
Places I've lived
Northwest Indiana
St. Louis
Holland MI
San Antonio
South Bend
Orange County NY

South bend is affordable but too much snow. I had a nice 2 bedroom by Walmart and Meijer area for $625. I think it's $715 now.
I hope you believe there's more to life than this.
