What do you mean, "meant to be"? Were they trying to have the WOAT system of roads?

Transportation is a major factor. Would you really want to live in a city that time-consuming to drive into, out of, and around? Their attractions are overrated too. **** the entertainment industry.

Three of my friends are engaged at 20.

One of my friends has a child at 20 and is pregnant with another. She's also getting a tattoo.

Wasn't talking about living there, just for tourism only.

Yes. But the stereotype isn't fair.

She constantly complains about her boyfriend/partner.

I'm hoping I at least go on a date with someone this year.

Well it's a factor when you're just a tourist too. Why go to a city where you have to spend hours and hours driving around when you can go some place you can travel on foot or with short train rides?

If I need a car to live in a city I might as well just live in a suburb and pay less for rent.
