Urban/Suburban Area for me.

I don't see myself ever living in the country. They are some nice scenic areas most of the time and there is nothing wrong with the country, I am just not a country person.

As much as I love skyscrapers and major cities... if I was given the choice between living in an urban area, or having sex with a broom stick, I'd totally give the broom stick a good lesson in sodomy. I have way too many bad experiences with cities.

I've lived in a rather rural area for 5 years and it was sooo boring as a teenager.
I also dislike suburban areas. They are in most cases too far away from the city center for me.

Rural is better than most urban areas but good urban can easily defeat rural landscapes.

I love pure rural areas...especially Montana and old country towns. I also love the downtowns and midtowns of "real" cities. However I despise suburban developments since the 1950's. The worst are gated communities and cul-de-sacs, so soul numbing. I like beach towns too.
Ideally a place in both would work for me. I prefer motorcycles to cars.

Outside the city I can deal with these environments.
Wyoming

Montana


Pennsylvania (i like old towns with density in the country)


New Jersey Pine Barrens


New Jersey shore


Places that would kill me.

Im pretty well setup where i live... im out in the country surrounded on three sides by forest and fields, there is a wide variety of wild animals and birds. But, i also live with a half hour drive of six cities of over 100,000 people and im only 75km from downtown Toronto. I like to best of both worlds scenerio!
