I would like to put a disclaimer that I am not trying to offend anyone and as ignorant as I might sound, I’ll admit that I am. I do have a lot of stereotypes that I’m guessing are not really that well based in reality, but at the same time, I have never been to the east coast and I really don’t know anything besides what I have heard.
Well, my boyfriend has recently decided that he wants to live back on the east coast where he is from and where his children are. And I love him and of course want to support that. However, I have lived 23 years of my life in the San Francisco bay area, and the other 6 in Hawaii. Everything he tells me about where he is from makes me feel like I might have a hard time loving it there. I’m pretty much a big tree hugging, hippy liberal, health food eating, outdoors-type social worker. I need need NEED cultural diversity. I know that there must be parts of the east coast where people live progressive lifestyles and have the mindset that goes along with it. Obviously big cities have all this and more, but I don’t want to live in a big city and I need physical beauty, which I know the east coast has plenty of. Does anyone know of areas in Pennsylvania or the surrounding states where someone like me might feel at home? And where interracial couples aren’t even looked at twice? (or their bi-racial children).. Where health food stores and diverse eateries and yoga studios and shops that sell sage and minimal Wal-Marts exist? I think you get the picture. Thank you for your time 🙂
thanks for the first two answers, but guys! i really wanna find somewhere out there where i could vibe! he is pretty open, just wants to be within an hour flight or so, so i was thinking maybe north or south carolina or something? near the ocean? or maybe upstate new york? thank you for your reply, but i really don’t want to live in a big city… there have to be some great little cities, right? cool college towns or something? where i can find my “own kind”..lol.. and to the second respondent — you should dig out. life is too short!
