I live in cali now and am "crunchy" well a little crunchy. I have been afraid of hating nc. My cousin lives in Apex so we were thinking of moving there. Would Cary be better? I need crunch around me!!!

Cary is much more creamy than crunchy, but everything is close enough. You can live happily in Cary and go play in Raleigh, Carrboro, Durham, where ever. Hell, I drove across the entire country to go see the Grateful Dead, I can drive 20 minutes away to get a good groove on here

I'm not saying that there's no "crunchy" folks in Cary, because there are certainly a few, but there's a much higher proportion in Durham and Carrboro.

Come visit us, check out all the towns in the triangle (preferably try to spend an evening in each one) and then make a decision.

Yeah, this thread has me thinking I wish the crunchy people (or anyone else who is 'alternative') wouldn't seek to be so isolated...they are a refreshing change for the rest of us. Mix! Mingle!

And just because I don't look crunchy on the outside, doesn't mean I'm not crunchy on the inside! So if you saw me at Whole Foods you might not think I would share similar values, but I meet most of the criteria on that crunchy list.

I live to mingle I have friends.from Nevada who are opposite of crunchy. But I don't want to be all alone in Apex. Apex seems cheaper than Carrboro.

This might be a good place for this question. I want to get a small tat on the inside of my wrist... In cali this is totally fine but if I move to nc and I shooting myself in the foot when it comes to finding a professional job? My other tat is one my foot and I can cover it when need be. Obviously wrist is harder.

Get it far enough up your wrist that it can be covered with a long-sleeve shirt and you won't have to worry. But yes, I think getting a tattoo where it can't be easily covered will prevent you from getting jobs depending on what your line of work is.

You'd do better in Raleigh than in Cary, Apex, or Holly Springs for that. All of those towns are very nice, but characterized mostly by suburban neighborhoods and cul-de-sacs aimed at families with children. Not that it would be a hostile place to live, but (stereotypical) Cary is kind of the opposite of "crunchy" for this area.
