Central Kentucky. Somewhat, bordering on very, unsatisfied.

Very satisfied here in Central CT...couldn't imagine living anywheres else (unless it's a vacation home in the Caribbean or something, but that would only be for a couple months at a time)!!

Northern Maine. Would be gone already, but waiting for the kids to finish the school year.

yes and no. /I'm satisfied here because I am used to the city and state. Shreveport Louisiana. I have friends here, a nice income, home and family, etc. These things can make a world of difference in how a person feels about where he or she lives. Believe me, I know all of the shortcomings of this city and state.

I love to travel, something a lot of people I know for some reason don't care for. Two places I would like to see would be western Colorado around Grand Junction and the tri-cities of Tennessee. These cities are about the size places I would like and roughly have the kind of climates I would like. I would consider these probably before anywhere else.

Why we haven't moved is a rather complicated matter, but sometimes you can't get everything you want. If you make bad choices in careers, sometimes you are stuck with it. Be careful out there with what you choose for a livelihood and a domicile.

Very satisfied in Westlake Village, California.
Beautiful, warm and sunny nearly everyday
Friendly, intelligent, well-mannered people.
If I could have 2 more homes I'd have one
on Maui and one in Martha's Vineyard.

I am quite satisfied living in Pittsburgh. However, I would love to experience other cities for a time, then head back to Pittsburgh. I'm really in love with the Northeast--I really just love the fabric of our cities, and would like to live in a bigger Northeast city. Although, I may have a job in Los Angeles, and think that would be a wonderful experience as well seeing the sun for a change and the gorgeous Pacific Ocean.

Somewhat satisfied with Little Rock, AR. This is a tolerable city that has sizable ameneties. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, and a few good clubs. I am not big into sports so the lack of major league doesn't bother me. Little Rock is a huge breath of fresh air from backwards, conservative rural Arkansas. If I ended up staying, I wouldn't be dissappointed, but if the opportunity came to move to a larger, more cultured city I would take it. Little Rock is adequate, but not much more. There is nothing really exceptional about it that would make me want to stay if I had opportunities elsewhere aside from the fact I am close to my family. If I ever did relocate it would be out of state. Little Rock is the only place in Arkansas I would be happy living.

Las Vegas: Somewhat satisfied, bordering on very satisfied. It's not perfect, but I actually really enjoy living here.

That said, I probably will be leaving next year. I'm going because I want to pursue an advanced degree though, not because I dislike the city (UNLV just doesn't have the program I want).
