I am a married mom with 2 boys, a transplant from Texas to Florida. I greatly dislike Florida and I am using Sperlings to select a new place to live. I run a jewelry store and my husband works for the electric company. We are very conservative.

Very nice and quiet........... Posted On: 8/7/2008 7:58:14 AM
I live for 15 years in Decatur and then moved to Florida 6 years ago. I hate Florida and desperately miss the friendly, gentle people in Decatur. It is very quiet with family values but still enough community to keep you from getting too bored. There weren't any bars or nightclubs when I was there and no malls. The people there like it that way. They are very well mannered and generous and helpful. It has a very strong community feel. If you are wanting the nightlife go somewhere else, if you have a family and children and want a place that is safe and conservative this is your place. The climate is a bit harsh and that is the main reason I moved. All in all it is a good place to live.
Women Beware, Great Disrespect for Females in St P Posted On: 8/6/2008 7:09:19 AM
If you are a woman from somewhere else you are in for a shock when you arrive, This is the Bimbo capital of Florida. I am a transplant from Texas and I have never seen women treated with such disrespect as I do here. The Pros of ST Pete are it's Geography and Climate, It is beautiful here and the climate is perfect if you are heat tolerant, lots of sun and a tropical feel, the water is clean and clear and nice, Unfortuanately........ The horrible people ruin it, The men here are beer guzzling, fishing, football, Hooter guys who think women are here to ogle. They treat women like prey to be hunted and sadly the local women go right along with this mentality, when I first arrived I thought there were hookers everywhere on the streets and then someone told me that is just the way the women dress here. This is NOT a place to have children and it is not a place to be married. Marriage is a joke here. This is one of the swinger strongholds of the United States and it shows. It is truly shocking, women will walk into the grocery store in a swimsuit. There are bimbo billboards everywhere and the Tampa Bay area has over 100 strip clubs and they are mixed right in with the main traffic areas. If you want to party and be chased around by men with the IQ of a doorknob then you will like it here, otherwise you need to turn right back around.
