I Am From Illinois

    Grew up in Chicago, but moved away when I was younger. Still close by, as much as I want to leave, I can't imagine not being by one of the greatest cities in the USA. Not much else in Illinois, the south is almost like a different state, kinda has that Kentucky feel to it. Where...

    I was born in Illinois,

    Hazel Crest to be exact. After my parents divorced, my mom and I moved to Florida. I miss Illinois but since my dad lives up there I get to go back often :)

    We Did It

    YES! Illinois ranked 35th in the most peaceful state to live. I mean what do you expect. We have problems with animals, citizens, and politicans. 35th out of 50 is alittle generous don't you think.

    Chicago Girl Looking To Meet New People

    Hi, my name is Katie and recently many of my friends have gotten into serious relationships and dropped their friends or have moved away. I am 21 and I am a full time student, I also work in the city. Just thought I'd give this a try in an effort to meet new people.

    Been Here My Whole Life

    I grew up in the NW burbs. About 10 years ago I moved out to the country to Deer Grove. Lived on a farm for a while and love the country. Now I'm on the outskirts of Sterling, Illinois.

    Is anyone in this group NOT from Chicago?

    I don't ask that to exclude Chicagoans, but as a legitimate question. I'm from a tiny town in rural Southern Illinois, and St. Louis, MO is about forty-five minutes away from my hometown. To give some perspective, Nashville, TN is a closer drive than Chicago is.

    I miss being in my home state sometimes.

    I moved from Illinois 11 years ago and now live in Arkansas. Hopefully I get to go back to visit my grandma soon. Shes pretty much the only family I have left there.

    Finally A Group

    I am from IL. Lived here all my life. But for me it's time to move on and explore new territory. Somewhere where I dont get to see snow. I live in the suburbs of Chicagoland and I hate going to Chicago. I would rather be in the countryside. But now I am in beautiful IL.

    A Chicagoland Gal

    I was born and raised in a suburb of Chicago, about 20 minutes west of the city.  I am a complete suburbanite, with no city savvy and no rural roots.  Sort of caught in between!
