Country Side or City Life?

What type of person are you? Are you the kind of a fast pace or just a laid back individual? Nevertheless, if you are given a chance to own a house or a place, which side or location would you prefer? Countryside or the city life? I myself, want both. Even if I have a car going home to the countryside or lets just say the suburbs I can't imagine myself not taking part of the action in the city. The traffic, busy cafe's, wide variety of shopping spree, and a lot more. Also, when I get tired from all these I would want to also indulge living a quiet serene life in the country side. Somehow, its a stress reliver taking a time out from all the noise in the city. The only thing that bothers me in the countryside or suburbs are there are no 24-hour food delivery which it kinda not very helpful because I don't know how to cook. Lol.

I grew up in a fairly rural area, then moved to a big city a couple of years ago. I also enjoy all the action in the city. I'm actually within walking distance of our pro baseball and football stadiums, so that's really fun. I like the area I live in, but I would like to move it just far enough to have my own large yard area and the peace and quiet with nature. I need both. Now I'm just trying to find the exact spot that has both!

yeah id rather have both. i mean each of it has its own characterisitcs and benefits that i know i like and i enjoy. in the city, its fast paced, as you have said 24 hour delivery, malls, shopping, everything at your doorstep, fit for someone who is young/ feeling young (LOL), energetic, loves the lights and coffeeshops but on the downfall, theres traffic, pollution, stress that "city life" gives, etc. on the country side, health benefits like fresh air, less pollution, very relaxing and a very nice getaway from the busy city life but if you go home to the country side and your work is in the city, now thats a different story :) LOL

I do love the life of country side, simple and everything is cheap and people are nicer. but I think I could not get away with the life city gives me. Everything is very convenient, you can buy everything, everywhere. A lot of things is almost just a hand away. I am glad that I am living in a place that still looks like suburb but it is in the middle of the city.

Country side might be beautiful but life there isn't very easy. So i'll go for urban city life. Its much more convenient.

Hello. I'd make the same decision like you. I'm a very laid back person but sometimes I need the city life or else it would be too dull. But the two houses can't be two far away from one another as I would want to move from one another at ease. On weekdays I'd be in the citylife, working and one weekends I'd be in the country side to unwind. I'm also thinking instead of having a house at the country house, I'll probably would want it next to the beach.

For me I would prefer city life because a country side type of life is a little boring mainly because you dont have anything much to do and I dont want to be idle that is why I would prefer city life which is you are alwaays doing something and always on the go.Hope you liked my response and have a nice day.

I like living in a countryside. Its peaceful not crowded fresh air and nice people. In the city pollution and very crowded. Lots of people and its so smoky because there are a lot of cars, factories..Better living is always at the countryside of course.

I prefer to stay in the city. I can not drive, and neither can my husband. We need to live somewhere where we have access to public transportation. My mother lives in the country, and it's fun to go visit her out there, but for us it's easier to stay in the city.
