I grew up in a Midwestern town of a couple hundred people and moved to DC.
I couldn't take it. I loved the food, museums, and nightlife, but I couldn't think or breathe. It was stifling. DH, of course, loved it and wanted to stay as urban as possible.
We ended up compromising (DH is from a suburb of an even larger city) and found a lovely small city/big town with great music, awesome art, good food, and nearby dark skies.
It's not perfect, though. I'd much rather have a real winter.
Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.
