I am thinking of moving to the country. I am currently living in Toronto (population 2.5 million) and while there are a lot of things going for Toronto such as public transit, and huge library system, festivals every weekend in the summer ect, the cost of living is huge. for a basic 2 apartment bedroom I am looking at about $1200 a month.
If I moved to the country I could get 4 bedroom house for $600-$700 a month, that would be with at least 50 acres of land. I know I would be giving up a lot as far as what there is to do in the city, but we wouldn't be broke all the time like we are here in the city. I have no idea what to do.
What are some of the pluses to moving to the country that I haven't thought of? Part of me just wants to pack up and go. But a big part is scared that I am going to hate it.

I moved from the East Coast to the Mid West...
I absolutely HATED it...
What ever the city has to offer the country did not... The country life is beautiful, don't get me wrong...
but it did not for me have what I was so used to having...
I cried weekly for 2 1/2 years and even got divorced over all of it...
But I am now back at the East Coast, paying way too much money for anything..
But you are where you come from..

I had lived in town all my life and then moved to the country and love it, but I am not the kinda person who needs to be less than 10 minutes away from every possible convenience. I may have to drive farther to get to things but its so worth it. I love how quiet it is here when we were in town there were people everywhere all the time. The only thing my husband and I miss is being able to get pizza delivery lol
