I am curious to find out city-data members' opinions regarding where they live and how satisfied they are living there. I tried to make the poll as unbiased sounding as I could. Please vote. If you would like to extrapolate futher, post a comment!

I live in a "city" (21,000) in Florida. No, I don't like it here, or in this state period.

I wish I lived closer to the grocery store, coffee shop, you know.
It is not easy being alone in the burbs and wishing you were in a city.
BUT I do like my house and I love living in NM.

I live in a town with about 20,000 people, its very boring, nothing to do, extremely over prices, due to its close proximity to Dublin. It sucks big time. Though I'm moving to a city of over 200,000 in Sept, it'll be great

No real choice for me on the poll. I live in a small town (population 1200) that is an hour or more away from anyplace that MIGHT reach 100k in size, and 90 miles to a city of 1 million in its metro area. I love it here and worked hard to get back here after living away for a long time. I will never leave again as far as I can see. So we are not Urban, or suburban, but just rural small town and loving it.

Downtown Sarasota...than "what he said"....lol.....some of the people are very mean and rude. Crime is high but we dropped down from the "meanest city" in the country to the ninth meanest...so I shouldn't complain.

I live in a mixed-use urban neighbourhood and don't like it. Not because I don't like urban areas, but because of the city it's in.
