There he goes again... taking after trump with the lies and manipulations. Everything he can twist he does. And I have lived there. But keeeep reaching my friend... not for dreams or wealth or the westside, but for ways to flip people's words around to perpetuate your anger and feel better about yourself. It's a really good philosophy. #MiseryLovesCompany

It's hard to imagine getting all that, then losing it to come back to be around family in Boston. It seems like it might be easier to just stay around, even though Boston is not big and open and cool and exciting.
Dude its expensive as hell and traffic is horrible. In boston at least you have some decent public transit.
If you want to live in LA make good money and have a reliable car.

Although I am not from Boston and have never lived there, I was born and raised in nearby Providence, RI.

Despite being 1/4 Irish by ancestry, I generally despised the Irish Catholic vibe of Boston and eastern New England at large, since I am 3/4 Italian by ancestry and very Protestant by faith.

Most people from eastern New England who do not fit the Irish Catholic mold are often very happy and well-adjusted in Los Angeles, Orange County or wherever else they end up.

In my experience, the people who move away from eastern New England and almost invariably return are Irish Catholic people from large, clannish extended families and/or are nostalgic for the Irish Catholic vibe of Boston and New England in general.

Why do you think all the Yankees left New England for Upstate New York and the Upper Midwest in the 19th century?

Yes the beaches in LA itself aren't great, but Malibu, OC, they're closeby and have awesome beaches.
Any beach in SoCal is going to be crowded, and getting to them is a huge challenge in itself.
On a weekend(if you are driving) it would take over an hour to go from Santa Monica to Malibu, and most of the beach is taken over by the people who live there.
I don't think there are many public access ways to Malibu beach.
As for OC beaches, traffic getting to them is another huge headache.
Like I said, you have this bay watch idea of what SoCal is like, and believe me, it is nothing like that.


Bob.

I don't blame the OP. But actually he SHOULD move to LA. I hate New England and can't wait to move away from here.

And they don't have to be. But what you shouldn't do is place your own views on others as if your perception is the only one that's correct. Just because you value a sunny climate and "banging hot chicks", doesn't mean another person's decision to live in a cold climate and be around family is less than yours. Different strokes for different folks.
Yes it absolutely does mean that that their decision is less than his. New England sucks. I hate it here. I was born in the middle of winter and it sucks. Nothing like seeing the leafless tree limbs standing in relief black against the sky as you become one year closer to death. Seasonal depression is real af.

I wouldn’t expect my family in Boston to open their arms to me upon returning from the den of iniquity, the city of sin that is Los Angeles. Dog forbid.
