I did. In the early 90's I wanted to move to San Francisco. I thought it would be fun to live in a very large city. I ended up in a large town and I'm actually glad I never made that adventure. I wouldn't even mind a smaller town at this point but some amenities and conveniences matter also. I don't want to live where I would have to drive a long way just to get something. My mother was from a large European city and loved San Francisco. She liked the business of the city. But I don't know if she would have ever wanted to live in one again.
