“I’m a small-town girl. And that’s all I’ll ever be. I’m just a small-town girl. Hey, that’s alright with me.”

I don’t know why there is such a rush to move to a big city because I love living in a small town. My friends from big town keep asking me questions like “When are you moving?” or “Why would you want to be stuck in here?” and to all those, I only have one thing to say “BUZZ OFF!! I love my small town, and I am proud to be a Small Towner.”

Why do you ask? Here are some of the awesome things that happen in the beauty of living in a small town:

So much less traffic:


In big cities, no matter how early you leave your house for work there are chances of being late, thanks to their traffic. Growing up in a small town you don’t have to worry about traffic because there is so much less traffic than in a big city. Plus you don’t have to wait an hour to get a cab like in the cities.

You stay connected with your childhood friends:

When you live in a small town, you are likely to be friends with people you grow up with; putting aside your personal issues. Even when you drift apart, you guys stay connected. While in big cities you struggle to keep up with your schedule, reconciling with your old friends seems like a far cry.

People know each other:


Living in a big city; people don’t even say hello when they pass each other in the hallways, and that is just sad. However, in a small town, people know each other, and they can rely on each other in times of crisis. The small town has a sense of community which makes it a better place to live.

Dating is easy:


Dating in a small town is easy and safe because you tend to know the history of most of the people. And for the people, you don’t know much about, one of your friends always knows them. So basically no one is actually a stranger which helps you in filtering the jerks out.

The breath of fresh air:

This is one of the best reasons to live in a small town. The city folks are breathing in so much junk that smog and fumes are a part of their daily lives. It makes me so happy that I live in a place where if I open my balcony and I am greeted with fresh air instead of pollution field air. A place where we have naturally grown flowers rather than flowers with chemicals and stuff.

The calmness:


In a big city, the cacophonous hubbub is your background day, but we small towner enjoy our peaceful surrounding. The roads are mostly clear, there is no constant horn blowing, and you can actually let your children play outside. Can you do that in your big city?

People have time for each other:

The best thing about living in a small town is that people actually have time for each other. I love it when we have the whole family together (which is mostly) enjoying a hearty meal. No amount of city light could replace this joy.

The Reasonable price tags:


Big cities with their big prices; and people actually pay for all the unnecessarily expensive stuff just to show off their big life. However, in a small town, if you want to be a success; have fair prices. People here don’t believe in unnecessary spending and show-offs; they would pay only for those things that they actually need.

A much less complicated life:


Living in a small community, your life is much simpler. You have limited options which contrary to what people believe is a very good thing. Plus, you always stay connected to your root, and you get more quality time with your friends and folks.

It is SAFE! :
