I like less crowded areas with nice people who talk to each other. Boston is not like this.

I think urban areas in general have a sense of unfriendliness or inconsiderateness that many may not get because they are used to a fast pace. Also, in general, the younger generation wants things instantly and have a hard time appreciating things that require more patience and listening.

Philadelphia as a whole is particularly overly sarcastic, hence shows like "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." (btw I like that show.) Sure, there are nice people, but it's harder to find. Pittsburgh may be worth considering if you can get a job there. It's got a small town vibe and people are generally friendly. They can be too cliquey though. Rural areas suit your general idea of friendliness, but of course there's the inconvenience of distance from desirable activities in an urban area. Suburban tends to have a little bit of urban and ruralness in a mixed clump, or that's my impression anyway.
