Do you prefer living in the city or country...and why?

I live in the country and love it but sometimes feel that I'm missing out...

  • I am a city girl Hubby is, has been always will be a country boy. We live in the country about 15 miles from town in a subdivision on our own acreage so it's not like we have close neighbors but close enough they have your back. It is nice, peaceful and quite out here and we can do alot more things then we could in town with that being said I so want to move back to the city I want to be closer to my dd's school, closer to our jobs, closer to the stores I worry about how much gas we are using daily to get us into town sometimes multiple times a day, the wear and tear on our vehicles for driving them so much.
    My hsband lived in town with me for about 5 yrs and hated every minute of it. On the down side though people don't like to drive this far just to visit so we don't have much company & I am a social girl.

  • I want to go back to the country! Curvy roads, no street lights, no neighbors in spitting distance. Now that's home! I like the convenience (sp?) of the city, like a midnight run for tylenol or something but I miss the country.

  • The country... a little town in the boondocks, farmland,etc, is quiet. But....BORING.
    I would love to live in a nice .classy city environment near everything. I am living in a boring place ....

  • I live in the city, but wish I still lived in the country and plan on moving back to the country one day!!! I miss being able to see all the stars at night (I know corney but it's true) and I hate how noisy the city is. It took me weeks to get used to all the noises at night. Also I miss seeing wildlife, I have lived here almost 7 yrs and have never even seen a squirrel!!!
