If you don't want to live anywhere else, why?

Houston ---> NYC or somewhere in the NE, SF/Bay Area... but I'd settle for Chicago. I want to live in/near a large, dense, walkable city so I can get rid of my car.

Now are you going to answer your own question?

I hear ya. I live in the DC area which I like. But I want to live in New York or Chicago later. Especially New York.

I have lived in "small town America" all my life (so far!). I can't see living in a city. The entire county I just moved from, not town but county, only has around 20,000 people in it. That's how I like it. You know your neighbors. My wife, on our first date, reminded me that small towns get the news out quicker than CNN. We were at the main restaurant in town and, in a little over an hour before we got back to her house, her invalid mother she was taking care of, already had 3 or 4 calls wondering who that was her daughter was with. Everything is more relaxed and laid back. But that's me! Several people seem to enjoy the city life. More power to you! Come out and visit sometime. We'll get an extra lawn chair out under the shade tree for you!

I live in San Diego ---> but when I get older and more professional, I might want to attempt working and living in lower Manhattan at least for a year if not longer or forever. I have thoughts about living in a large European city every now and then, probably won't ever happen! I don't have the guts.
