I live in Southern Ontario, a couple hours from Toronto.

1. What are some of the positives of living in your area?
It's a gay-friendly, interracial dating-friendly area. As for fat... I really haven't had much experience one way or the other, so I'd say it seems neutral, which is better than unfriendly. Also, this area is quite friendly toward the recreational use of marijuana :P

2. What are some of the negatives?
High unemployment rate in my particular area, high rate of hard drug use as well.

I live in Ottawa, Canada.

Positives: There is a lot here for a city this size (many museums, some good cultural institutions, decent night life, pro hockey team, but the whole urban area is probably something like 1.25 million people), lots of outdoors stuff near the city, quite multicultural and accepting, decent public schools, quite safe, good bike trail/lane network, the core of the city is quite walkable....the place really is a pretty decent spot to live.

Negatives: Some times you really do remember how small a city it is, in that there is only one or two places that sell something, or major musical acts don't bring their tours here, or there just aren't so many options of things to do so that it seems everyone is doing the same things. Not so many fat folk here compared to many other places, and no size acceptance culture that I'm aware of. Excessively white collar town, limiting opportunities for people who aren't into desk jobs. The only bigger place within day trip distance is Montreal, and even flights to almost anywhere go through Montreal or Toronto, making it a bit harder and more expensive to get away from here.

Anyway, I'm in England. Newcastle for now.

Pros: It's not where I grew up, but it's home geordies are generally really friendly!
Good (and cheap!) local music scene.
Good (and cheap!) bars / pubs etc...it's such a studenty city!
Really pretty area of the country.

Cons: It takes forever to get back home to see my family. They're way down south.
The wind, oh dear lord the wind! It often comes over from the east...so, Scandinavia. Brr!

Catonsville, MD BBW Lover Here!

Pros: The Baltimore metropolitan area has a lot of interesting sports activities and a few interesting museums.

Cons: For a city of its size, Baltimore is a very minor city. There really isn't much to do here and the crime rate is very high.

The BBW scene just doesn't seem to take hold in Baltimore. To find BBW groups, you have to go to the DC area. Even there, the BBW scene is miniscule.

I need to go back and contradict what a previous MD area poster said. Interracial dating does take place in MD, but it is not as widespread as it is in larger states. Baltimore is still socially segregated, but it is possible to meet people of other cultures in the DC metropolitan area.

Bay Area California!

Bonuses to living here are what msot people consider pretty good weather.There is always something to do here,and San Francisco is pretty Rad in my book.I lived here my whole life so i know alot of people.

negatives-Dating here proves to be more difficult than in all the other places i have lived.Which is alot.And people here are very clicky and stay in their groups.

And there's essentially no interaction between the townies and the students here in Hanover, so the population shrinks down to 4000, from the perspective of most students. We also rarely leave campus (to say, go to the residential area of town).

Great movie indeed. I don't think the animosity is that high, but I've definitely seen some Dennis Quaid's "Mike"-types lurking around.

This poll brings up a question I've often wondered. Do you think there is a relationship between location / FA attitude? Meaning, do certain parts of the United States foster and cultivate an FA more positively then others?

For example, a location known for it's bigger residents such as Mississippi, an FA would have a far better time being an FA, where as a place known for its lean customers like Colorado, an FA would have a diffacult time explaining his tastes to others.

It seems like pretty simple Math, but I'm curious if this situation is as basic as it sounds. Also, I wonder if anyone has actually made a migration to another state based on FA preferences.

I think having more big people around could affect number and attitude of FA in a number of ways. Maybe more people would realize they preferred bigger partners....or maybe less would, because they think they just happened to fall in love with someone who happened to be big.....or maybe they think it is normal enough that they never really pay attention to it.

Certainly when you consider it, something like coming online to look for a community supporting big people is a kind of odd thing to do, and maybe most likely to happen in places where big people are either most rare or most shunned.

In short, while there could be a link, I doubt it is a totally simple one.

Ummm, far away from anyone and everything it seems...

Pros: it's beautiful here! I live in the Middle East. In one instant I can walk through a thousand worlds; I live in the centre of history; I wake up every day with the sun streaming through my window.

Cons: I live in a war zone that is probably the thinnest place on earth. (Actually, rephrase that: I live in the thinnest place on earth, which is also a war zone).
