Is there something wrong with me for liking cities, and wanting to live in one?

Asked by Aesthetic_Mess (7887points) September 16th, 2010

I mean I like nature too, but I like living in big cities, and it seems like everyone else wants to live near a beach or mountain or valley etc. Is there something wrong with me for liking what I like

Of course not. To each his own. :)

I don’t think there is something wrong with you for liking cities. Perhaps you enjoy being amongst people, the noise and hustle and bustle of a city.
Everyone is different, so enjoy what you have.

No. A lot of people like cities. They like not needing a car and having a lot going on around them and being around a lot of people and having everything being nearby….not for me, but it is for many.

Well, everyone else? What about all the people choosing to live in cities? No, there is nothing wrong with you. Cities have a vibrancy that is unmatched.

My perfect life would be a place in the country with a pied a terre in the city.

I like the idea of living downtown in a city and walking to cafes twice a day to eat then going to stores without getting in a car. I’ve never been able to do it. I know a couple who lives near Times Square in NYC and they Love the “energy.” We bought their Texas vacation house and there’s no energy here!! LOL

Like whatever You like. Life would be boring if everybody liked the same exact thing. It’s the diiferent things people like that gives life some contrast.

Not at all. I am exactly the same way. I loved living in the city as it was so alive with activity, I love living in the suburbs and someday I hope to retire on the side of a mountain in SC. Best part of living where ever you are, you can always go visit the other places you may desire.

No, there isn’t anything wrong with that at all. and that’s coming from a country boy

That’s something right with you.

Not a bit. I like cities, too. Too long (say, over a week) in the countryside and I’m not a happy camper. I will say I like living in a place on or very near a huge body of water, though.

Nobody lives in the city. It’s too crowded!

While I general prefer the country, I have lived in a couple of cities in Europe and a couple in Asia. I loved it there.

Wrong with you? Certainly not. There are pluses and minuses in most areas, and how they balance out for anyone is personal.

I have a dear friend who is as private and quiet-loving a person as you’ll ever meet, and yet she loves to live right in the thick of an urban area. From her high-rise apartment she can’t hear any city noise, and when she walks out her front door, everything she wants is right there: coffee shops, theatre, restaurants, parks. I’ve never been able to figure out how a reclusive person can love the city, but she does.

Hmmm… fresh air, dirt beneath my feet, the sound of birds in the morning…

Or being able to get sushi delivered at 4 am.

I’ve spent about equal amounts of my life in both city and rural areas and all I’ll say is that I’ve tired much quicker of city life.

Yes. You and the millions of other people who enjoy living in a city are mentally deranged. What you don’t know is that those cities are set up to keep you loonies round-up in one location. Like “Escape From New York.” Except you all don’t want to leave so they saved money on building big walls.

Win-Win.

Not at all. I love living in a city and would never dream of going back to the country. Well, not for more than a couple of weeks at a time. If I lived anywhere else I would die of boredom and loneliness.

jca's avatar

nobody can say any opinion is “right or wrong.” it’s your opinion, you are justified in feeling however you want. there are benefits to living in cities and there are disadvantages to living in the country, so…..

Nope. 80% of America agrees with you.
