Personally, I am usually optimistic and adaptable. While Aberdeen will be farther from people I know in Scotland and will be significantly more expensive because it is a bigger city (third largest in Scotland), it IS a CITY--loads more of everything! I have found a lot of interesting restaurants, several bike shops, several cinemas (Cineworld Cinemas has an unlimited card for £16.90/month!!), lots of coffee shops, including Starbucks, an Apple store, running and cycling groups, and I am still exploring. It is a university town which I tend to enjoy. It is close to the mountains, forest, and beach, for nearby outdoor pursuits. So, living in Aberdeen could be pretty cool.
