Only if you swap for the land of sunbleached sand, snakes and scorpions.

I'm stuck in So California, for now, and want OUT. I've lived here all of my life. Its not for me anymore. I prefer a very small town with maximum 3,000 people.

-Cheers.

Stuck in the south. I'm ready to move somewhere with more diversity. More stark weather changes, moderately liberal politics. (less conservatism and religion being stuck down your throat). Maybe Chicago, Boston? I like the desert southwest, too. Phoenix (specifically Tempe) is nice, though relatively conservative. Thought about Seattle. Still need to visit.

I have lived here in Richmond, VA for all but 10 months of my 23 years, and am ready for a change. Weather just turned from 80 degrees to frigid cold in a matter of a few days. No family nearby except I live with my mom and my sister (who I don't get along with). Also, very little work in terms of what I do within about 100 mi. of Richmond. COL isn't too bad, but higher than I want to pay.

I've been reading posts from a lot of unhappy people, and it's good to know I'm not alone. What I'd like to know is, how do you deal if you really can't leave? My husband refuses to move. I hate it here in orange county, ca, but the only way I can leave is if I get a divorce, which I don't want to do. I love my husband, and he is a good provider and father. The kids want to move too, but isnt it better to have your parents together than live where you want? So what to do? Suck it up, I guess. How do you live somewhere you're miserable? Would antidepressants help? The grass is definitely greener in MN, so how to deal with it here without going crazy?
