Are You A Country Person Or A Townie Person ? And Why?

I’m more a country person as I like the quieter more simpler life and nature and fresh air to breathe.

I'm 100 percent a country girl. I actually live in a town of 2800 people. We no bars and no shopping centers.
LilPrincess · 41-45, F
@mindlessdrifter its beautiful here and only crime is someone getting pulled over on the main highway for speeding
@LilPrincess I will have to pack up and move there. Low crime rate rocks my world
LilPrincess · 41-45, F
@mindlessdrifter does mine too.

I'm not sure anymore. My favourite village locations are now inhabited by city types with enormous vehicles who barricade themselves behind security fences and contribute nothing to the community. Meanwhile my city is slowly becoming cleaner and less frenetic and people are taking time to get to know their neighbours.

@SunshineGirl definitely an in between.👍

I'm a Country guy. I like the pleasantries of nature and being in the woods a lot as a kid was fun. I like to walk along the beach and sit at the creek that's at the bottom of the cliffs in my home town. I love living in the country. Everyone knows one-another and the spots to fish were plentiful. Walking around the town down the road was fun. My father and mother were EMS and saved more than 10,000 lives in the 12 years they served. Everyone from Buffalo to Farnham knew of my parents. I love the country side so much that I would love to have my ashes placed in specific locations in a small necklace hung where I hungout as a kid and teen.
I grew up in the city, but I'm surprised to discover I'm very much a country person.
The city is still within driving distance when I want to visit.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@SethGreene531 me too.

Country person, I born and raised in big major city and hated it.

Here are the major reasons why I hate city living.

Too much spying. Now cities have cameras and microphones everywhere. No privacy

Everyone anything in your business

Permits and licenses for everything little thing

Last time I was in a major city. Everyone was a cellphone zombie. Everyone was walking and looking a their stupid phones. These people will die if they had no cellphone for 2 hrs

Most country areas cellphones don't even work, but their working on that and that a problem. We need places that are cellphone free.

The fresh air and freedom is nice, but when you are in the city, it is so easy to buy things, and you can always go on long vacations.
I guess a country person would go to a city to vacation?
slorollin · 41-45, M
Definitely a country person. Closest neighbor is about 1/2 mile away. This so my front yard.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@slorollin That looks amazing!👌
slorollin · 41-45, M
@Primnproper thank you 😊
Paladin · 56-60, M
I don't mind living in the city as long as the population is less than 5000. But I prefer living completely away from other people.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@Paladin my husband would love that.
I live in the country side with feilds and farms all around. Woodland walks. Best place i have every been
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@nevergiveup sounds wonderful.
SageWanderer · 70-79, M
I definitely love the country for the peace and quiet but close enough to the city for the culture.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@SageWanderer I can understand that as well.
AlchemyFox · 36-40, F
I'm a country girl. I'm moving to a city though 😬
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@AlchemyFox wow hope that goes well for you. I come from a town then moved to the country and absolutely loved it.
AlchemyFox · 36-40, F
@Primnproper We'll see... I love the quiet and space, but development has destroyed everything I knew.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@AlchemyFox it’s very sad how it does that..
Barny52 · 56-60, M
City’s make my feet hurt !!
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@Barny52 Yes everything is so spread out. Lol
Barny52 · 56-60, M
@Primnproper can walk ten miles easily no problem but doing same in a city hurts my feet thinking that the floors harder !!
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@Barny52 that’s very true.
Degbeme · 70-79, M
I`ve never lived in the country, I`m in a town. It`s not bad.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@Degbeme that’s fair enough..🙂
Justmeraeagain · 56-60, F
I live in a small town but I really like the country
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@Justmeraeagain yes I’m the same.
Convivial · 26-30, F
I don't trust air i can't see....
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@Convivial 😁
Convivial · 26-30, F
@Primnproper but i do secretly agree with you ;)
I'm a townie!!! I HATE being forced to try to live in the countryside.

In fairness, I think I might have adapted better to country life if I'd been in a less toxic environment and I'd been left alone to do my own thing.

I had found my little niche where I could contribute to the household - and I wanted to be left alone to get on with it.
Preferably country
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@mindlessdrifter yep me also!👍
exexec · 61-69, C
I would die in a big city, but our little town has grown to over 120,000. Fortunately, I am on the edge and have access to country landscape and wildlife.. I am a country boy at heart since that's the way I grew up.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@NoThanksLeon are you? a simple man?
@Primnproper Let's say...not complicated.
Primnproper · 56-60, F
@NoThanksLeon lol..thats good enough. I like that 👍
Strongtea · 22-25, M
Can I sit on the fence on this one? I’m a city person who loves the country, but misses the city when I’m in the country and misses the city when I’m in the country. 😂
Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in town
Sometimes I take the great notion
To jump into the river and drown.
fun4us2b · M
City for work, country for home, I like both....if I had to chose one, it's country...
Houdini · 56-60, M
Out of the two I would say country. But most of all I would say the cost
Sevendays · M
I prefer country living but also love short city visits
I’m a "city mouse", born and bred. When I lived downtown and couldn’t sleep on Friday or Saturday nights, my husband and I would get dressed, go around the corner to a hole in the wall club and dance the rest of the night away. Then we’d drag ourselves down to a nearby diner, have breakfast, then finally go home and sleep. Those were the days…

I live in a small town, I prefer it over the city.

I'm a country bumpkin at heart, though I have strong social ties to the heart of a big city. I was born and raised on a 1000 acre tobacco farm which bordered Lake Erie and my sisters and I had 2 miles of sand beach in our back yard which was the south border of our farm property. Driving little farm tractors and pulling wagons filled with tobacco leaves for the hired help, then hanging out at the beach with friends on weekends (and sometimes with the hired help when Dad wasn't watching), became normal routine for my sisters and I throughout our teenaged years.

Then one day the bright city lights lured us away from the farm and before I knew it, I was surrounded by people and concrete. I get back to the farm about once a month as do my sisters and what I hate now is returning to the big city at the end of our visit. There's something that really sucks about city life, despite having a very successful revolving door social life beneath those city lights. I'm not saying that I'd eventually follow in my parent's footsteps because I already know what that looks like. But I will say that I already know what big city life is and what it's all about, but I'll find it easier to leave the city behind than to leave the country behind when that decision is eventually made for sure!

@swirlie how wonderful

I was born into a dairy farming family in northern Sweden and our little house on the prairie sat right on the Arctic Circle, a fact I discovered later on in life during a high school geography lesson! Moving to the south at 20 years of age where all the city night life was happening in Stockholm, it is not exactly shorts and T-shirt weather for 10 months of the year because I'm still 500 miles north of the most northerly part of the USA in comparison!

What I like about city life in the south are the social contacts I never had in northern Sweden. What I like about country life to the north is the connection with the earth and the sky that I don't have in these southern latitudes of Sweden. Fortunately, I travel on business a lot and I get to see a cross section of what other people experience from one country to the next. The most unhappy people I have ever met are those who have never experienced anything but city life and clearly could not survive without their high speed internet and cellphone in hand.

@SandWitch understood.
