Hey guys,

New to the forum and looking for some advice

I'm currently living in the St. Louis Area and I really miss the "country" living/lifestyle. Sure the big city has it's ups, but I really enjoyed the "simpler" lifestyle, if you know what I mean.

I've lived in MANY different places in my life (I'm 24 and have lived in roughly 12-14 places. Mainly in 4 states) and I've always liked the "country". I'm single with no children. Love country music

What I'm really looking for is a town/community no bigger than 6000-7000 people. I'd like it to be "somewhat" close to a bigger city (not St. Louis Big though). Can't do the farm thing (though I'd probably love it) because I have asthma and allergies pretty bad.

Things I'm looking for in a town... Hmmm.

- I like nightlife, so hopefully it has something to do after dusk.
- I don't want any big stores there (ie: walmart)
- At least a couple pubs/bars to play pool and relax after work
- Opportunites for employment (no college degree)
- Bad credit, so will be renting (maybe contract for deed?)
- More girls than guys preferable... haha
- People around my age is definately a plus!
- A hospital somewhat nearby
- Cost of living, below national average, is a plus
- Just things to do in general... Hate being bored, but hate the city life!

Oh yah, and one more thing... If anyone has seen the movie "Sweet Home Alabama" with Reese Witherspoon or "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray... Those type of small community with diners, friendly people, etc.

Does a place like this even exist? haha


I'm A Nomad.
