I moved from the Miami area to the Nashville area about 8 years ago and still feel like it was a mistake coming here. Our family is very hippy/new age/freethinkers. I knew this area would be pretty "Bible Belty" but have found it difficult to make any friends and I feel so different from most of the people that live here.
There are things I do like about this area, the schools, my house, the scenery etc. and the people are pretty nice generally speaking and most in this small town do pull together to help each other.
I miss a lot about Fl but I especially miss the diversity of the people. I feel like Nashville is such a growing hot spot there have to be other people/families that are open minded or mot "the mainstream". Everyone in my town assumes everyone else is Christian, the store signs quote the bible and even in restaurants and other businesses they have bible verses painted on the walls. not that I have anything against anybody but the fact that it is assumed bothers me.
I convinced my parents to move here a few years ago, they pretty much hate it but would never consider moving again at their ages. Now I feel like I boxed us in and we really are stuck here at least until my folks are gone which could be a long time still, not that i hope it's sooner.....
What would you do, or have you moved and arent happy? I dont know where we'd go if we did leave here, maybe another part of Fla like Tampa.
