Do you think wizards are more suited to living in a medium/big city or the countryside?
I was more of a country guy but recently I began to wonder if living in a city wouldn't be better and would like to hear your opinion

 No.176317

wherever your parents chose to live

 No.176327

I like cities. I dont enjoy nature for some reason, but i love to take long walks and look at architecture.

 No.176328

if u like living around niggers live in the city.

 No.176337

I have lived in both and the countryside is 1000x better. Friendlier people, an actual community that cares about you, people have an actual culture and not just CONSOOOOM, you don't met mugged by niggers or stabbed by muslims. I used to live in Paris so… yeah. I guess it's different if you don't live in France.

I do live in France and live in the country actually cities just seem more practical. I don't necessarily mean giant metropolis like Paris or Marseilles but a medium sized city with public transportation, jobs, a train station and shop in walking distance sounds better than what I have

 No.176345

I've only lived in medium and small cities.
Small is way better. Bigger cities are louder and of course more crowded. People here complain about stupid bullshit like "we don't even have mcdonalds" or "there aren't any big discos here"… But we get local produce way better than you'd get on a supermarket, you can go on a walk at night without niggers stabbing you, there's a forest like five minutes away on foot, businesses are rarely full of people, people are decent and help you if you're in trouble.

City would be easier to live in if you don't have a car, but rural will have cheaper property.

they used to all live on farms

 No.176349

if you have the choice, always go to the countryside. i wanted to cry the first time i slept in the countryside, everything is quiet, there are no trains, no inexplicable high pitched noises, no neighbors smoking weed at 2am that make you get up and close the window. just being in the countryside is like taking a huge weight off your shoulders. its like living your life with blurry vision then putting on glasses. i cannot stress how retarded it would be to live in an urban area over a rural area.

It's relative and everything you listed comes down to personal preference.
Both have major disadvantages as well as advantages.

In the countryside you get to enjoy bydlo peasant mentality (have fun being alienated by the community for being a weird fuck) and constant gossip. You accidentally did something embarrassing and one person saw you? Well, tomorrow everyone knows about it. At least in the city you can be a no body.
There's also the matter of practicality. Usually you need to drive long distances once a month to a city in order to do your shopping because it's difficult to find anything locally. And if things break and you are in trouble you better be a handyman and learn how to sort out your own problems, whatever they may be.

Cities are better. No people trying to force you into some fallacious, manufactured "community" like in a small settlement, you're completely ignored on the street so you if you left your apartment to get food/drink or something you wouldn't be accosted by everyone you see. In addition, the aesthetic is better, the steel and glass portrays a high-tech environment fitting of an introverted lifestyle. I live in the suburbs and would give anything to be able to be a NEET shut-in in a personalised apartment.

 No.176744

The cost of living is insane, though. Cities are for normgroids with careers, not penniless NEETs.

 No.176745

Oh no, I'm such an autistic virgin wizard NEET I'm mortally wounded by people saying good morning to me when I go for a walk. Fucking normalgroids shouldn't be polite to me, they should treat me like dirt instead.

Stay in the city. We don't want you here.

You have a point. For me though nothing could ever compete with the access to nature I have where I live (not quite countryside but the edge of a small town). Just being in the city for a few days gives me an existential crisis and makes me want to kill myself. The hustle and bustle, endless crowds of normgroids, ever-present cheap consumerism and absolutely degenerate culture is literally nightmarish and extremely oppressive to my every sensibility. The only appealing thing about cities to me is having access to every kind of store you could want and having some great architecture to photograph right on the spot, but there are alternatives to both and they're way not worth it. There's no gossip in a small town like there is in the neighbouring even smaller villages, and I have access to all the stores I need as a wizard NEET. The only thing I'm missing is a cinema – the nearest decent theatre is about 40 minutes away, but then again, there's rarely a movie coming out that I want to see.

>There's also the matter of practicality. Usually you need to drive long distances once a month to a city in order to do your shopping because it's difficult to find anything locally

Covid has pretty much killed the few benefits of the city with the constant lockdowns. I will say in the age of amazon even the argument of unique stores ring hollow because brick and mortar has been forced to streamline so much that only the major things survive like groceries and auto parts stores and anything that is a niche thing you pretty much have to have it mailed to you.

However a huge HUGE downside to living rural is the traveling if you have to drive anywhere. I used to not care about driving but the older I get the more I hate it and the more I don't want to commute the 2 hours a day. The only thing that stops me is that I know city life and how dangerous, annoying and all of the bad it can be since I grew up there.

Online food delivery is easier and faster. Get it dropped at your door instead of driving to town.

>2 hour commute

Where the hell do you live where you drive that far each day? You're in a job too far from your home if that's the case.

Take your strawman garbage back to 4chad. I'd love to stay in the city, unfortunately "trad" fetishists and other cottagecore roleplaying regressionists would prefer to force everyone to live in their dessicated rotten wood shacks.

 No.177530

Nature gives chance to grow food if you have the land. But you can also do that in a house in the city.

The city also gives more chances to shoplift and steal so that's also a pro

I guess it depends on your lifestyle but in the city at least you are a number and can disappear in the multitude

How about something in the middle, whenever people talk about cities they usually mean like the MASSIVE megalopolis' of the world like newyork and such. How about a small to medium sized city? One where the suburban sprawl hasn't touched it yet.

living in a large city is hell. Extreme shortage on cheap rent house means I live in a single room house where i can hear every sound my neighbours make. The kids upstairs walking, the neighbours on one side having sex, fights, watching their shitty movies after they come home from wageslaving. There is nowhere you can go to be alone without traveling 3+ hrs. One gaze on a random street and I count 20+ people at least. they stink, make noise and stare at you. Fuck cities. I would leave if I could.

I moved out of a very small country town a couple of years ago to move to the big city for work. Now I'm trying very hard to get back out of the city and into the country again. I'd rather work the counter in a gas station in the country than get paid good money to live in this hellhole. At this very moment, 10:06 at night I can hear some asshole revving his car up for no reason. Maybe it's one of the kids who races sportscars every Saturday night 100 feet from the house I rent

 No.178570

i live rurally but my next door neighbor is a car fixing guy and there is engine noises and revving and banging and welding nonstop

he sounds like a swamp monster and always has a million relatives over hooting and hollering

add in their dogs, and my other neighbors dogs, which both bark at anything all day and the coyotes screeching and the redneck kids on loud ass dirtbikes

Used to live near a "unofficial gun range" for a few months in the country.

Being dead serious it reminded me of growing up in the inner city in the 90s.
Like it was actually nostalgic and shit heating gunshots.

Now I live in a small town where people actually mind their own business, which is really nice both personally and as a wizard who enjoys solitude.

Isn’t it funny how normgroids lie and flip it to the opposite? They say
>in big cities everyone minds their own business and is tolerant!
>in small towns everyone is super mean and gets in your business!
Yet reality is literally the opposite. Big cities are hellish and people there seem to constantly want to be in your business.

 No.178621

>>178610
Thing is they aren't necessarily lying.

Different towns and cities have vastly different cultures.
Some small towns really are as gossipy as people complain about, but there are plenty of others where its standard to mind your business and it's seen as super rude to gossip or get involved with stuff that ain't any of your business.

It's why if you have the option when looking for a place to live, you really should scope things out and maybe spend a month or so there to get the vibe and culture of the place before committing.

 No.178637

here in Brazil small towns tend to be whiter and safer
as the other anon said there is lots of gossip though, and everyone knows everyone
I'm kind of a shutin and a few days ago I went to the bigger supermarket around, the cashier said to me "are you X's brother?" and she was right. Sometimes older people will look at you and say "are you Y's son?". It seens people can recognize who is related just by the way they look similar.
Small towns also probably have better education (again, because it's whiter and safer here). My town of 15k people is ranked around 30th for best schools in the country (we only have 2 high schools)
My worst fear of small towns is running into former bullies but so far it only happened a once or twice.

Cities are convenient, but I want to get out ASAP

 No.179294

An interesting question and I can see good arguments for both sides. I grew up and have lived in a city of 10m+ people all my life, so I'm used to the amenities that the city offers and I'm not sure I'd be able to live in a rural location, where I'd be forced to drive frequently, perform upkeep on a vehicle and in general just be more self-reliant. I also don't particularly enjoy nature and prefer to stay in my room, but I think that's probably just because I've spent my entire life living in an apartment building in a concrete jungle.

I like feeling like a nobody in a big city.

 No.179316

i dont like seeing people

 No.179380

Small cities or large towns. I have no compelling reason to move from the one I'm currently in. Here's a few reasons
>enough shops to keep me happy (including a couple dude weed lmao stores and a couple video game stores)
>close to nature
>most stuff is within walking distance
>job that pays enough for my needs/comforts
>not a huge amount of people, so I don't feel overwhelmed even going down my town's main drags
>big enough that I don't know literally everyone
>high speed Internet, so I can buy books or games online if I want, and stream music

Where? There are a lot of small town and cities but not a lot of jobs there. Born in Dalarna and that’s where I intend to die. I miss it so badly, Stockholm is hell on earth.
No one gives a shit about each other, you can’t even use a public restroom because the druggies have occupied them and the cops do nothing because they’re “refugees”. And when they are cought they only get a month of probation effectively for things like mugging people because legally they’re 16-17 years old (actually more like 22-24). If you try to take the subway in central Stockholm there are most likely going to be homeless people asking for money by walking up to you. If you are assaulted you can’t even really legally defend yourself. You can’t even carry pepperspray. If someone breaks into your home you can’t use more violence than they are going to do towards you and the burden of proof will be on you if you defend yourself. Some granny had to pay a large chunk of her pension money to a burglar who slipped on his way out of her house.
