    East Central Il

    I'm a white single male in east central IL, about 200 miles south of Chicago. Are there any fun people in or near this area? I'm 6' tall and athletic build, with brown hair and eyes.

    Chicago Girl

    I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago. When I went to college in Decatur I learned pretty fast that Chicago isn't like the rest of Illinois. Hopefully I will be relocating in the future, Illinois is a pretty boring place and our politics are a joke.

    I Am An Illinoisan

    I live in Northern IL and the only thing better than that might be to get out of this state entirely. Don't get me too wrong, Illinois itself isn't that bad of a state, there is lots to do with Chicago being about 100 miles away, and a 2-3 hour drive can lead to some other...

    Hi Everyone!

    Illinois is mostly country boys,

    don't get me wrong they are okay. There just needs to be hot tattoos guys who love the same music as me. Like where are those guys at?!

    I grew up in the Chicago area and moved down to southern Illinois for college. After growing up in hectic traffic and busy life styles, it is nice to relax in southern Illinois. It is a really beautiful area, although there isn't a lot to do here. Out west is where I'd really...

    Ugh, I Hate This Place.

    I live in Lansing, which is on the south side of Chicago. I've basically grown up here my whole nineteen years of life...and I'll give you one word of advice: don't move here. This place literally has NOTHING to offer ANYONE. Anywhere in Illinois but here. Yuck.

    The Illinois government is corrupt

    and incapable of fixing the problems of past officials who are either serving prison time or attempting to be the president of the United States. If it weren't for family & friends, I would leave this horribly governed state and go to a state that has their **** together.
