    Default Why do you live in London?

    Is it due to a job/school/family/friends? or do you just love it here?

    Whats the story?

    My hubby worked briefly for the RCMP.

    Now we are here because I LOVE it here. It is the best city that I have ever lived in, and I have lived in a lot of places.

    My parents came here because my dad was transferred here when I was 2 years old. Mom, dad and little bro are the only family in London, everyone else is in the GTA. But its the fam that keeps me here.. well.. keeps me coming back anyway. And now that I have a family of my own we'll be here for a while... although, DH and I have just talked about our plan to move back out west in 7 years (compromise between 5 and 10 years.. lol) ..

    I'd definitely prefer to stay because its where I feel most comfortable and at home. Everytime I've lived outside of London, its never felt like where I should be. I always call London home, and probably always will.

    my a tad different. Sperm donor told me " you move to London or never see D again" I agreed. In his warped mind I would be easier to control not knowing anybody lol in reality I had known bf was here and was a drug and alcohol counsellor and thought he could help get my life on track little did I know we would end up together mind you sperm donor says me and bf conspired to get together and even planned it to the day we start dating LMAO

    Now I stay cause I love it

    We have always lived in the area (stratford for me and st. thomas for hubby - since 10 yrs old). We moved to London specifically after we got married for school.
