Pros and cons of living in a big city

Some people dream of living in a metropolis, others do not tolerate the bustle of a big city and are eager to leave it. And how to make the right decision and understand whether this option is right for you? To do this, consider all the advantages and disadvantages of living in the city.


First, consider all the advantages of life in the city:

  1. Interesting and useful acquaintances. Indeed, it's much easier to get acquainted with interesting people and establish promising connections in a big city than in a small one. Megapolis attracts people, especially ambitious, educated, active and purposeful.
  2. The opportunity to get a good education and a prestigious profession. There are more institutions of higher education in the metropolis, and personnel training is at the highest level, and therefore there are so many nonresident students, each of whom dreams, after graduating from the university, to get a start in life and build a career.
  3. Living in the metropolis disciplines. You have to get up early every day to get to work, to look after yourself, to look good, to keep fit, to attract the attention of the opposite sex.
  4. More opportunities to build a personal life and start a family. Even the most modest girl in a large city is easier to find the second half, because still many residents of megalopolises of the male do not differ in shyness. The representatives of the stronger sex are also much more options. There are several explanations for this advantage. Firstly, there are more public places in which acquaintances usually take place in large and developed regions. Secondly, residents inevitably come into contact and interact with each other. Thirdly, you can register on a dating site and meet with a virtual interlocutor.
  5. Developed infrastructure. In a large city in each district there are schools and kindergartens, polyclinics and hospitals, large shops, shopping centers and other institutions that people need for a full life. Inhabitants of small towns sometimes have to go to large regional centers to obtain qualified medical care, solve housing problems and other reasons.
  6. Diverse leisure options. In any metropolis there are cinemas, shopping centers, restaurants, bars, fast food chains and cafes, museums, water parks, night clubs, theaters, zoos, and much more.The entertainment industry is developed, and new establishments are constantly opening up, where you can have fun, have fun, and even have a good time.
  7. Availability of different categories of goods. Many manufacturers and suppliers are focused on large cities, and therefore we can safely say that they can buy almost everything, including ultra-modern gadgets, exotic products and unusual things.
  8. Job. There are much more opportunities to build a career in the metropolis, as there are many enterprises and various institutions that need employees, including young, active and creative ones. There are much less vacancies in the villages.
  9. The ability to open a business and develop a business. If you are an enterprising and smart man, then you will be able to become an entrepreneur.
  10. Earnings in megacities are an order of magnitude higher than in small settlements, this is a fact. Therefore, the standard of living is better, which opens up opportunities for development, improvement of status and financial situation.
  11. The ability to travel. In all cities there are international airports, railway and bus stations.In addition, there are embassies and travel agencies, so organizing a trip abroad from here is much easier than from the village.


Now let's look at the disadvantages of living in a big city:

  1. Bad ecology. In the metropolis there are many factories, plants and other enterprises, the emissions of which pollute the environment. Some compounds get into the air and are inhaled by people, other substances penetrate into the water and also inevitably rush into human organisms. In addition, in large cities there are much more cars, whose emissions also have a very negative impact on the ecological situation.
  2. Enumerating all the shortcomings in their list is to include the rhythm of life. In some metropolitan areas, it’s just crazy, so it will be very difficult for people accustomed to measured existence to adapt to it. Some, having failed to adapt and learn to constantly rush and keep pace, eventually change their place of residence.
  3. Big competition. To get a good position, you need to make a lot of effort, because several people are probably applying for it. It is important to be able to show yourself from the best side, highlight your positive qualities and prove your capabilities and strengths. Not everyone is ready for this.
  4. Frequent illness.Unfortunately, the inhabitants of megalopolises are sick more often than living in small settlements. First, the frantic rhythm undermines the immune system, which is why the body's defenses weaken and the person cannot withstand the attacks of pathogenic microorganisms. Secondly, due to the accumulation of people and high population density, all infectious diseases are spreading rapidly, which often leads to epidemics. Thirdly, it is sometimes simply impossible to limit contact with the sick, because often they are in close proximity to healthy people.
  5. The modern metropolis is a huge number of people, and this feature is not for everyone’s liking. If you prefer loneliness, you are a modest person, an introvert or, all the more, you cannot be a sociopath in society, then you will have a very difficult time.
  6. The next minus is important for car owners. Since many residents of large cities have personal transport and have long been not a luxury but a means of transportation, this inevitably leads to the formation of traffic jams and traffic jams. The situation with the road traffic situation is much worse: in megacitiesthe movement is more lively, and accidents happen more often.
  7. A huge flow of information that is far from being handled. To keep abreast of developments in the city and keep up with life, you need to use modern gadgets, regularly study the media, be an active Internet user and be able to process data, sifting away all unnecessary and highlighting the most important.
  8. Small spaces, cramped. Megapolises are quickly built up and settled, new people constantly come to them, so at some point you may get the impression of a lack of space, especially if you are accustomed to space and freedom.
  9. People. Since many of them are constantly in a hurry, are laid out at 100% and get tired at work, they become withdrawn, irritable and indifferent, and this is sad.

Life in a big city has both advantages and disadvantages, so you should not rush to the metropolis if you are in doubt and are not ready for change. But before you can open up new opportunities and prospects.
