Okay, I was too brief in a previous thread so I'm remaking it since I don't know how to Edit it.

How many of you hated where you were living, then found a city you LOVE that feels like home, moved there, still live there, and still love it?

Where is that new place and where is the old place? And why did you love the new place so much and not the old place?

I have never really moved more than 50 miles my entire life. And I frequent all places I used to live so it really isnt old nor is it new.

I love Living in Indiana

I used to live in Milwaukee and hated it. Being cold all the time had the most to do with it. But I also didn't like the accents, most of the chicks were ugly, tons of snow, sports teams blow sans Brewers, people weren't real friendly, food was bland, beer sales stop at 9:00 and the radio stations suck and no football. A city that size with no pro or college football...no way.

I now live in Lexington, Ky and love it. People are friendly, weather is fine, chicks are hot, beer is sold at gas stations, UK is in the SEC so there's football and the rolling hills are beautiful with all the horse farms.

Um, you are from Milwaukee and didn't know you had a pro football team? Ever hear of the Packers? Also, what did you do about your "ugly" accent when you moved to KY, just didn't speak?

The Packers are in Green Bay, silly!


I left Tennessee for Chicago and never looked back. as flawed as it is, Chicago is the only place i've ever felt at home.

I'm not talking about a football team that's 2 hours away. Why would I wanna drive 2 hours when I already live in a big city?

Again, Milwaukee has no football. Unless you like watching Pop Warner on Sunday's.

I graduated college in 2008 living in rural Arkansas. I desperately wanted to get out, and I dreamed of moving to a big city such as Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, etc. However, because of the state of the economy and pressure from family to remain close I had to accept any job I could get and ended up in Little Rock. While I will say Little Rock beats Podunk, AR pop 500, its hardly my ideal place, and I am making plans to get out of here in a few years when the economy recovers. This town is too small, too car-centric, and too conservative to be my ideal city. On the flipside, the natural beauty here makes it bearable.
