    My home town is good because am from a nice estate, where I can take my dog for walks, go to a couple of fields in close proximity and fly an electric r/c jet (and also take my dog for walks ), go rollerskating on (apparently) Europe's finest rollerskating rink and go to another field that is like a 45 min drive to fly proper r/c aircraft. You generally get bigger houses outside of cities as well. However, from a social perspective a City (such as Nottingham) has amazing cinemas, generally a friendlier attitude, a great student vibe, good shopping, great bars, pubs and clubs. The thing is with a City such as Nottingham is that it's also quite rural outside from the city.

    Neither. I am a country person through and through.

    I certainly appreciate cities. London is (IMO) one of the best cities in the world and I enjoy spending time there when I can. But, I would never live in a city if you so much as paid me. Give me the fresh country air and the peaceful way of life any day.

    I live in the very outer-suburbs in between Liverpool and Manc but I would much rather be living in a city centre. I am definitely more of a city person, I dislike having people I don't know saying "hi" to me although that doesn't happen much around here anyway.

    I love going to the bustling city for the day but returning to the town for the evening. :love:

    i've been living in a town all my life, but living next to big cities.
    Same here.

    Perfect situation for me really. I'd like to live in a town (less noise, pollution, nicer houses at lower prices etc) but be next to and in contact with the city daily. Best of both worlds!

    now now - you forgot the pub for every two shops and five people there must be a pub

    the more isolated/depressing the town = the more pubs,so people can drown their sorrows

    Definately a city girl!!!! I was born on the outskirts of London and I absolutely love it. So many places to go, very multicultural, lots of choice, good transport etc. I go to uni in Exeter and its waaaaaay to small for me.

    Neither. Absolute desolation, please!

    Although, I was driving around in the 'deep' countryside last week, and ended up wandering through a large private estate. It really had the air of some creepy mormon commune. A small village with an adequate shop and decent distance to the nearest town-with-supermarket place would do me fine.

    I prefer small secluded places, as long its not like a run-down, crappy-shop place...

    City definitley. Been born & brought up in the suburbs of London and even thats too quiet for my liking. It's my dream one day to live in a more thriving part e.g. Camden. Hoping to go to Leeds or Sheffield for university.

    There. Sorry, but I keep seeing people do this.

    Um Ive only ever lived in a town but there is always something to do, plenty of shops, leisure centres, libraries, restaurants, cafes, bars and plenty of night clubs in the town 15 mins drive away. I wouldnt say hello to everyone in my town, it's not a large town but that doesn't mean I know everyone. Probably a town person as a city to be is just a big town.
