I was born in sunny Mazatlan, Mexico. I live In W. Vancouver, BC., Canada. I'm flexible in traveling to meet the right person when the time is appropriate... the distance isn't important, what is important is to find the similar soul friend & companion with similar interests. God bless you, I wish the best in your search.

Well, from the results of this poll, people either stay put within 20 miles of their home, rebound to their hometown after being away, or move a long, long way away (more than 250 miles). Hmmm..... I wonder what that means? Just found it interesting that there was an apparent tolerance level for distance from home. I guess if you're going to live within 250 miles of home, you might as well live within 20 miles of home. Otherwise, it seems pointless according to this poll.

I have lived all over the country, but have even had dreams about walking down the country road where I grew up. When I got a chance to move back to Tennessee, I jumped at it. Since I consider becoming a Catholic as 'coming home' also, you might say that I've come home to two homes, Catholic abd Tn.

I grew up in a smaller town in Northeastern NY. There weren't any jobs there after graduation, so like many people in the 80's and 90's, I headed West to where the jobs were. I am finding the the central and Western parts of our country have lower taxes, are more family friendly and are more friendly to religion and the cities are cleaner than the East where no one cares.

Haven't yet voted in this, but just want to add my two-cents worth. I live in, Canberra, Australia the place where I grew up in. It's a political, Public Service, town, that empties out when the Parliament's not sitting, and many people don't to be "chained" to it by Convenience. I would see it as an achievement in life to move from here, although it really is a convenient, clean and peaceful place.

I grew up 15 minutes from the ocean north of Boston. It was a wonderful time in my life. We could walk to the beach and spend as much time as we wanted next to the ocean. I really miss it in the summer and one of my bucket list things to do is to go back and spend the summers next to the ocean. I now live in the Midwest and lakes & rivers are not the same.

I grew up on 11 acres of land in a rural area, moved to the city of Philadelphia for college and my frist job and now live in a seaside community. "How different is your geographic area from where you grew up?" would make a really interesting poll as well.
