I live with my parents, and its getting to be a little annoying. I still feel like I'm a little mama's boy. "ooh that's nice he's helping his family, how cute, but he's still worth nothing socially"
Sure it wouldn't fix everything, but it would help in meeting people and stuff.
(Or maybe I'd just lock myself in my apartment and never leave >_>)

Or buy a condo in the bigger city. But seriously, theres nothing you can really do to change the hell of living in a small town. **** it's gay.
I used to live in a small town (went to high school there), but I isolated quite a bit, didn't go out on weekends etc. Still I go back there every once in a while and I'll recognize people from school, but they have no idea who I am. Like being a spy almost. It's very odd. I'm a ghost except to a handful of my friends. I think that's both a good and a bad thing.
Living in a large city is also good and bad, bad because it triggers my SA more (more people, more anxiety for me), but good because it is exposure and I can blend in
