Upland, CA
I live with my mom, and she lives here. I like it okay. Yes. Eugene, OR or somewhere close to it because I miss Lyle and the weather and people there are much better suited to me, I think.

Why do you live in the city you live in?
I moved here to be with my fiance', whom I met on the internet.

Do you like it there?
I love it here. The social scene is great (when I feel up to going out). The resturants are fabulous. There's a ton of stuff to do from bowling and pool to museums and theater. The weather is beautiful, and while I hate the insanely hot summers they're worth it for the mild winters and the gorgeous spring. I do miss Oregon autumns though.

Do you wish you lived somewhere else? Where/why?

I haven't been very many other places. I remember driving through Colorado Springs, CO thinking it was beautiful and would be a nice place to live. I've always wanted to visit Sydney, Australia, but I don't know if I'd want to live there.

we live in ottawa ontario canada (as you know) and i'm not even sure why. i guess because TLB's dad lives in ottawa and my parents live in a village nearby. I'm kinda sick of living here. love my friends, hate the city. very government & money oriented, often snobby. TLB and I want to eventually move to montreal because over there live is more relaxed, tons of stuff to do, a more hippy/bohemian atmosphere, and appartments are cheaper to rent... among other things. I love montreal...

I live here because I moved here to go to college and really like it here. The weather is well suited to me (I appreciate it a lot after 12 years of snowy, cold winters). I think I might like to live in Santa Fe, NM for a while, but I think I could happily live in Portland/surrounding area for the rest of my life.

I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I grew up in the MN suburbs and only landed in the city because after I left my ex, I had no where to go. My sister, at the same time and by strange coincidence, was also in the process of leaving her man, and so we joined forces. She was employed downtown at the time, and needed a place by a bus stop, there's a bus stop in our front yard, so whalla!
I like it here.
I'd like to live in Alaska, but only briefly. I think I'm pretty content to stay here in Minnesota. Main reason: FOur distinct, beautiful seasons!

I live in Hammond cuz I like the peace and quiet. It's like going to a cabin every night after work. :)

Close enough to the Twin Cities, but far enough removed to relax on the weekends. :)

That's what I'd like! Except in Oregon 'cause Wisconsin's too far away. And we have better cheese. :P

I live in Morden, Manitoba, Canada. My husband was from a city nearby here and we bought a place in this town instead of the next one only because it was a good deal. I like it as it's a nice small town, but we do everything in the town where my husband was from so we are trying to buy a place there instead. We go to the gym there, both work there, have family there, go shopping there, everything.
