Unsatisfied in Sacramento, CA. I would leave today if I could. Not sure where I would go though...I am definitely ready for a change. Sometimes I think if I lived in a different part of Sacramento I might be less unsatisfied, but really, I don't find it to be a very attractive place, and I don't like the sprawl. I have some great friends here though.

I am unsatisfied with New Jersey. I can't wait to leave.
It's a combination of bad politics and high cost of living.
Plus high population density and sprawl.

My ex boyfriend had a condo in Ft Pierce along the A1A and we visited a couple of times. I loved the condo,the pool, the private beach and the seafood restaurant down the street but the town itself seemed shady. I felt it was 2 towns stuck together.

Very Satisfied.

I live in Chicagoland. I guess the weather could be better, or the landscape (wish we had mountains), or the cost of living, etc. But the main reason I love it here is the people.

Well, the weather could be better everywhere in some form or another, and the cost of living here isnt that bad, really. I do agree about the mountains though. They might buffer sprawl some. And yes, the people here are great. I love Chicagoland, havent found anyplace else that makes me feel the way I do here. Im addicted.
