Yeah, but I bet Cadiz doesn't have a Phat Gear...

Shocking to most people......i'm happy in the Youngstown metro. People need to realize that in most cases a town/city is what you make of it. The grass isn't always greener on the other side.

I am, but not because of the location. I'm not too fond of it, but I'm happy with my life here because really, life is for the most part made up of your friends and loved ones, professional life, etc...

I'm quite happy here. I've got a great mix of urban and rural, and it's very affordable. (city in the front yard, metropark in the back)

I think there are a lot of unhappy people here because many found this site while searching for a new place to live. They find their new place, (or are still looking) and then come back to talk about all the things that made them want to move in the first place.

i wouldn't think so because the majority of people did NOT choose the general location they live in (like metropolitan area). most people stay where they are born. that's why it takes balls to do what you want and move where you want! that's what i am doing.

I wasn't happy where I lived on socal. Maybe the socal I remembered but not the one that exists now. I chose to leave and am very happy in Oklahoma, where its green and open and there are no huge crowds of people. Went back to cali for Thanksgiving and all it did was reinforce my decision to leave. Couldn't wait to get home.

I love where I'm at... I have had several opportunities to move to other parts of the country and have declined each of them - primarily because I do like where I'm at, what I consider a great quality of life and a great cost of living.
