My sister had a laundry list of items.
First, she said the humidity made her sick and she couldn't adjust. Rich people have the permission to not adjust.

Separately, she said the Wilmington water was hurting her skin. Apparently, there was something to that and she had to start seeing a dermatologist and she was breaking out and had other problems.

No friends in NC, they both claimed they didn't like the food that was available.
Husband struggled with flight availability out of that airport for his business trips. Further, he opined that it was easier for him to travel and work starting on West Coast and he didn't anticipate that.

Likely the most important reason, 2 of their kids still in San Diego. One graduated, one still in SDSU and they missed each other.

In the end, they could afford to do it and did. Insane to me, but I do love San Diego and have enjoyed my yearly visits.

I would agree, yours is likely a rare opinion.

But, my damn Sister did the exact thing.

Peak of pandemic, my Sister and her Husband decided that San Diego was no longer for them. They lived there since 2001, raised three kids but were done.
Sold their house outside of El Cajon and moved East.

Bought a house in Wilmington, NC, 5 minutes from the Ocean. They were in the Wilmington house for less than 9 months and were miserable.

Sold the Wilmington house after 10 months, somehow somehow more or less broke even/some profit and moved back to San Diego.
They are in an AirBnB near Mount Helix in San Diego right now and are browsing for their next home.

All in all, they estimated they are out around $80 thousand dollars in miscellaneous everything costs related to moving coast to coast, twice, basically within a year.

I found it colossally ignorant, but they are rich and I am not.
10 months doesn't really sound long enough to fairly judge a place, settle in, and build a social network.

One factor took them to Wilmington.
She works in media (Producing/Acting) and during pandemic, everything was in flux and apparently several things she was interested in (or already committed to) were going to be done in Wilmington.

That was apparently the level of research that was done to buy an 850k home and sell it within a year.

Rich and regarded. An odd yet unsurprising combo.

Random issues or depression and some people will run from their problems seeking happiness in a new environment not realizing what they're really doing or that it isn't going to help. Or maybe it was the dumb fucks everywhere with constant loud and in your face shitty opinions and politics.

VA suburbs suck that’s your problem.
lol probably true. I did live in Richmond and the fan before. I still remember hearing gunshots in my first Richmond apartment and hearing about someone getting killed during a robbery.
