I've lived in the City all of my life. I would love to live in the Country.
I lived in Dallas, TX for over 30 years and when we retired and I inherited a house in a town with a population of 997 people and the nearest town with a mall was 60 miles away, I thought I would hate it. I thought every drove ridiculously slow and sometimes on the highway 45 MPH would be the norm. Now I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. I also think it depends on your age and what you do for a living that dictates where you live.
After 39 years in Southern California, the past 26 years in a town of 25,000 in NW MT has been quite satisfactory. Rural, but not too rural.
I have lived in the country ( in a small village ) for over 30 years now. We moved from a small city. Both have their perks . I don't miss the people on top of people part of living in the city but so miss the walk-ability, especially since I don't drive.
I have always lived near the big city (Denver)- never thought I would live in the country- when we moved to Ohio 2 years ago thought we would be in one of the city- but a perfect house for us (upstairs for my son and his wife- and a walkout basement unit for me) came with almost 2 acres of landand 15 miles from anything. Really like it now- some adjustments- but OK.
I love the country. I can go to the city when I want and leave it behind me when I return to the serenity of home next to nature.
