Rural or urban?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Are you a city person or a country bumpkin? Do you have a lust for the 24hour life, or are you happier lazing the days away in a field listening to the cows?

Put simple, what's best, city or country?

    City, definitely.

    The bigger, the better.

    I like a healthy mix of the two. Yes.

    I'm happy living on the rural/urban fringe :p

    Nah, I've got the city 20mins away - country 20mins away the other side - I'm happy :D

    I live in a village. 20 minutes away is a town, 30 minutes away is a town. IT's a big village with lots of shops, I love living here. It's beautiful as well. I wouldn't like to live in a town or a city, they are too busy for me and I hate the smell of pollution.

    A large town would be best. London can be pretty expensive to live in and when I go up there the crowds drive me mad! I don't mind guildford to be honest, there's always room for improvement but I guess its got its pubs, clubs, cinema, theatre and gigs, though that kind of stuff can be better up in London. However, if I were forced to choose, I'd go for a city anytime.

    city, i love living in London, i don't think i could live in a rural area, it'd drive me mad. One of my criteria when choosing unis was that it had to be in or very near a city :D

    I don't mind either.

    City centre (like where I live now is OK), and the middle of nowhere would be nice (probably better), providing I had transport.

    A bit of both.
    But I'd prefer to live in a medium sized town. It has all the comforts, and services, I could need, but without the bustle and crowds. Country is nice, but nothing is convenient, and you absolutely must have personal transport or you can't get anywhere.

    Its got to be the country for me, Ive always lived in a rural area and its what im used to - a country bumpkin:) although I wouldnt like to live out in the sticks, preferbly the rolling hills by the coast with sea views - -- my soul needs a daily sight of greenery , hills,fresh air and SPACE - The city is dirty and depressing with concrete colours I dont mind the transport problems as I only ever drive everywhere anyway , I cant stand public transport.

    im originally from a sleepy little highland villge with sheep for company. everyone knows everything about you (including what you are going to do before you know!!) i hate that. i much prefer living in a city where i can walk down the street and not know a single person. however, the country is a nice place to run away to when things get too much or too stressful.

    The city or somewhere very close to a city or with good access to a city. I couldn't cope living in the middle of nowhere!

    I prefer a town or large village. I wouldnt like a tiny village, but I hate London. I live in a town at the moment, but id prefer somewhere a bit quieter.

    I live in the country side.......and i love the quietness and how you can get away from it all..i love walks in the fields when its raining and the fresheness of the air....

    BUT I love the city life. I live an hour away from london and i love all the shops..the hustle the bustle.....so many people..lives..lifes...

    so ill probably go to uni in a city and then move somewhere i can get the best of both worlds :)

    I`m adaptable. I`ll live anywhere and I have done, from really remote places to the inner city.
