Are You More of a City or a Country Person?

Ask a Question

I grew up in the city and am unfortunately currently still living in one (in a suburb), but I prefer the country by far, and as soon as I am able to do so that is where I will be moving to. To me, the countryside smells and looks a lot fresher than cities do and are also a lot more peaceful overall.

I prefer the suburbs so that I can go into the city whenever I want and it’s not too far away. Although I do like the odd trip away to the countryside you are right lots of fresh air and peace and quiet does good

I am with you on this one RC90. I do envy my sister and try to get away to hers for a break when work permits, and if ever covid let's me. It is a long drive but worth it. I tried to move nearer 3 years ago but won't go into it again as spoke about it on here before. Although I love my house and garden, when I open front door gloom descends as I venture into the concrete jungle!

I grew up in the wilds of North Northumberland where the only things you saw was your sister and sheep! You had to have a car, if lucky, to go anywhere even to get the school bus. Moved to a small village (24 houses) near the coast when I got married (73 houses when I left) now live in a small town in next County and love it, so close to shops etc and no need for a car.

I do like the hustle and bustle, but as I get older, I appreciate the more tranquil settings, and some country settings are simply divine

I agree - I grew up in a posh little suburb and I hate the city, I feel really uncomfortable there and quite on edge the whole time... I also couldn’t deal with the noise all day.. equally wouldn’t want to live in the middle of nowhere - but somewhere in between!

I used to love living in the centre of Cardiff because there was so much going on, but that was 25 years ago and I was a lot younger.

Now I live in a small village (which is getting bigger and bigger by the day ☹️) and it's very nice besides the boy racers and the road building.

I couldn't go back to the city now, but I am an old fart.

I find the city is nice in small doses.

I'm much happier in the countryside nowadays.
