GAG users, what country are you from?

Do you like where you live or would you prefer to live in a different country? What things do you like and dislike about your country?

*Note: I realize that there are many other countries where users here are from but there are only 5 poll options so I just included the ones I thought would be the most common for users here. I apologize if your country is not listed. If that is the case, just select "other" and include the name of your country in your answer:)

    Do I like where I live?

    Hmm, well, that's a pretty complicated question, really.

    I don't really care to live outside the US, although I wouldn't dismiss the idea entirely. It'd really have to be something big though, to get me out of everything I know... I hope that makes sense.

    Do I like where I live, regarding city/state? Absolutely not. I was hoping I'd be getting out of here sooner rather than later, but a family member's health issues prevent that from happening anytime soon. So I'll be here for a while longer, it seems. Without my parents though, I'm gone. To a place completely new and unlike where I am and I'll never come back.

  • Finland. And yes, I like living in Finland. I especially like the usual winters, the way most people respect the privacy of others, how safe it is here, the nature in general is pretty nice. I dislike the lot of drunken fools we have, some of the laws we have in place and the sometimes quite harsh judgementality present.

  • I live in America, and I like where I live. I wouldn't mind moving just to get away from the area that I grew up in, but whenever I do end up moving it's going to be a small town kind of place. I hate cities. I live in Michigan and on the west side. Which is basically the beautiful side of Michigan compared to the south east part of the state. Not to mention we got Sleeping Bear Dunes. Voted the most beautiful place in America! Can't get any better than that!

  • I'm from the USA. Hmm I'm thankful that I was born here over some other places but it wouldn't bother me if I lived in another country. I'm a traveler at heart and want to live and work in many places in the world. I'm glad there is variety in the world and I hope to absorb as many cultures as I can.

    • I don't find it boring at all. But I suppose it depends on your interests. I'm an outdoorsy person and there are a lot of things to do in that aspect. I also like that there are mountains on one side of the state and the ocean on the other. But obviously it's just my opinion.

  • I'm from the good ol' US of A :-)

  • I live in America. I don't hate it, but I am not really happy here either. I would love to move to some other countries and see what they are like first hand before deciding where to live for the rest of my life. I don't really have any country picked out, but I know I don't want to stay in the same place forever, and always wonder what I missed out on.

  • I live in the U.S. I like it enough, but I do think some countries might be cooler and even better to live in, such as England. Unfortunately, I don't have the money and am horrified of planes, so that likely won't be happening anytime soon.

    Other than England having a bit better healthcare, I just think it looks and seems nicer.

  • I'm from America but I live in Japan. I like both countries for different reasons, but between the two I'd prefer to live in the states. I love Japan and it's been a great experience, but it's not a permanent place for me due to less job opportunities for women (especially a foreign one) and the fact that it's harder to find certain foods/products that I enjoy having (example: whole grain bread, noodles, or wraps are practically nonexistent. Fruits and veggies are super expensive-etc.). On the upside, I do feel much safer here, and find the people to be much friendlier than in America which is a huge plus.

    I'd like to try living in Europe or Australia though. It would be nice to explore other places and compare them all. :)

  • I live in the US, and yes I like living here.

    It's OK, but I don't see where everyone is getting this whole," American Dream", idea from maybe it was at one time, but it certainly isn't right now. Every country has it's flaws. (Shrugs shoulders)

    Now I've always dreamed about living in Britten. Especially since 1D those charming British lads came out.

    It's the same with me and Australia... Its just something about guys with accents that drives me nuts xD

  • I live in Germany. I was born somewhere else though...

    Yeah I like it here. I like the german punctuality and the directness of the people (mostly). They're a bunch of reliable people. They focus more on quality than quantity.

    Dislike: I wish people would be more friendly towards strangers. Also people really like to complain over here, mostly about first-world problems.

  • Australia.

    I love where I live and realistically I think that no matter how much I travel, I'll always call Australia home. Beautiful beaches, laid back people with open minds, and a lot of opportunity (high wages, etc).

    I dislike the institutionalised racism inherent in our culture and how isolated we are (especially where I live, which is the most isolated city in the world).

    • Out of curiosity, just off the top of your head, how cold does it typically get there in the winter?

    • -20 is normally as cold as it gets in the south.. nothing so bad as the -40ish we've had lately

    • Ugh, see I would not survive in that level of coldness. Lol Like I commented to Janson. The low was about 10 degrees Fahrenheit here this past week and I hated it.

  • US, I do like where I live and appreciate how good we have it right now compared to others in other countries. I like the idea of moving to another country but realistically I wouldn't see it happening. I would like to go to Spain but I don't know really. Here in the US a lot of things are being shined on like politics, media, celebs, but about the truth of how it really works.

  • Polish born and bred.

    It's not BAD here, but people seem to have this obsession with "doing things the Western way" and we have retained little culture of our own. Plus, prospects are not too good for my intended area of study (and work) so I choose to study and then probably continue to live in the UK instead (in 18 months I'm off to the Isles). Or Australia. Or Canada. Or to hell with that, I can just travel the world. Weeee~
