I like the Midwest. Most places in that region are more openminded than those in the Northeast and the people are friendlier. Would take the midwest over the Northeast anyday

I would not mind living there at all

..you want someone to save you?

I don't think that there will be many volunteers; I think that you'll have to save yourself.

Not to be mean, but if you look at that poster - he signed up and had 9 posts in a matter of an hour that were all freaking out about being tortured by living in Ohio. It was like a housewife who just found out her husband had been cheating and went on a rage breaking all the china and running around in front of the neighbors screaming.

I don't understand why we live in a country of 300 million people, and instead of moving where we want and making a change, people sit and whine about what they don't like and trying to convince everyone around them that they should all be feeling the same way..............just because.

If you don't like it move on with your life. Otherwise, don't expect everyone and their mother to just blindly follow you. 66 million people live in the Midwest and are doing just fine. Sorry you don't like it - but don't expect everyone to start spending their personal time caring.

That does get very annoying after awhile. From most people I have communicated to it is either that they are too young to chose to move or are having money problems, so decide to sit there and complain why life isn't the way they want it to be. But whatever, not my problem.

I left Ohio years ago because of the climate and now live in the south. I wouldnt move back to the midwest for anything after getting used to living somewhere warmer. As for Ohio itself, it definitely has its charms.

Lake Saint Louis is what makes living in Missouri tolerable. It deserves its rating. Two nice lakes, a friendly, well maintained community, lots of outdoor and community activities. It could use a "downtown" area, and some restaurants that are not the usual franchise eateries.

The only bad part is when leave this little enclave of normal, to travel on the worse stretch of I-70 in the country to get anywhere, and realize that you are still in Missouri.

I left the Midwest and went to Florida. I was extremely happy at first.

However, during the last couple days of my weeklong vacation I realized that I live in a pretty awesome place, and went home.
