[ - ] We are fed up with the cost and stress of living in NYC and want to find someplace to move without having to be surrounded by just strip malls and chain restaurants. We want a place that has some culture, good restaurants, walkable neighborhoods, relatively sophisticated people, good quality of life, and access to good schools. We can do our jobs from anywhere but need to be near a big airport that will allow us to fly direct to most other major cities. East coast if preferred to be near family, but we're open to anywhere. Where should we move? 27 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

np- that's how I feel about St. Louis. My born and bred NY mom moved to STL three years ago, when she thought DH and I would be settling there permanently. We have since moved a few hours a way, but she adores it, and St. Louis is home for her. Has the most incredible life you could imagine. Her one big regret today is not considering a move there back in the 90's when my dad had a job offer there. Yet when she first heard we were moving there, she was horrified - thought it would be some terrible place [ Reply | More ]

I cried like a baby for a week. Then I took a hard look at them (crazy) and me (not doing what was needed) and swore it wouldn't happen again. It did, and it hurt. But each time I learned something and worked harder next time. Now I've been here 14 yrs and am well respected. The key is to pick yourself up. [ Reply | More ]

This. I had a similar experience - realizing that A) the company really was a horrible, toxic mess and it was better for me to be gone, but B) I also was capable of doing much better work than I'd done there. Part of my issue was I disliked many people in management for good reasons but ended up being passive-aggressive and refusing to do certain tasks - all within my control to fix. You can and will find something better. Give yourself about a month to sulk a little bit and then start looking, giving yourself a fresh start. I have a much better job now. [ Reply | More ]

This happened to me and I ended up somewhere way better for me. You grow and you learn. It hurts but it’s a lot like getting dumped. You eventually meet someone new and you move on. [ Reply | More ]

I don't feel like looking for a new job. I want to just stay home. Not forever but for now. [ Reply | More ]

I did SAH for a few months, really enjoyed it, but ultimately went back. This coincided with youngest starting K so the timing was also good. FWIW I think it was much better for my self-esteem to find a new job that I was good at. [ Reply | More ]
