Aussie here, and looking around Australia is looking like a worse and worse country to live in (high cost of living, shitty infrastructure and culture unless getting drunk and eating overcooked meat suits you), curious about people's experiences moving from one country to another and wherever they currently are.
Fuck, forgot to say that. Yeah, don't know any other language, though after experiencing aussie internet I'm prepared to learn any language to use proper internet for a change.
>worse than Aussie and NZ
Australia just has this attitude of "that'll do" and sooner or later shit is going to get much worse (survived the GFC pretty well but now are in financial shit because "she'll be good" government the last few years)
Shit posting aside, your UK? How is it?

Yeah, I get that, I'm a kiwi myself. I do have family in both the UK and the US, and I've heard from them that it's less...moderate over there. Everyone just seems to have stronger views about everything. I don't know about you, but I'd rather our apathy than that.
Let's see. From all of the BS I am hearing the US is significantly better than the other English speaking conuotries. If you are willing to live in a non English speaking country then your options get better. I hear good things about Poland, Ukraine, Russia, The Philippians, and South Korea. I think the Cato Institute has a list of the most free countries in the world.
Can confirm, people like me can't be in the middle. You're either far left or far right. My conservative friends call me an SJW cuck, while my liberal ones call me an insensitive bitch. I like this country, just not the politics.
Have you travelled/moved countries though? I understand the risks, but as i said in the OP, most of Australia kinda sucks, and the chief advantage is the weather (which I prefer colder weather) and not being shot or being killed in a natural disaster (bushfires aside).
Kk, I spent time in the US (when i was 6-8 so it doesn't really count) but i remember my parents saying stuff like that. Our apathy just means everything is so-so, and i just want to consider other options rather than just saying "eh, Aussieland is good enough".
Interested in that list too.
Have you tried places like Denmark or Sweden or... Uh... Finland? Some Nordic country where prostitution is legal, the women are naturally beautiful, the country is beautiful, etc. Fuck don't come to America that's for damned sure. This place is fantastic if you're rich and good looking but other than that it's shit tier.
So OP you're a highly qualified, attractive and somewhat well off dude?
Because that's what you need to be to live anywhere else other than Australia, with the same quality of life or close thereto.
If you're a poor or average fag then you won't find better in a holistic way but maybe small things are better while other things are worse).
I've lived in US, England, and Japan. I've spent a few weeks in Israel, Costa Rica, and Germany.
Each and every place is what you make of it. People are people, it just depends on which side that particular area or culture shows you. I've met Australians abroad. They were exactly the same as US citizens in that some were drunken messes of people. Some were thoughtful and quiet. Some were hilarious and very Indian.
Before you run off living anywhere, I suggest visiting places. Backpack around. Do a guided tour. Study abroad. Do what you gotta do to exposure yourself to multiple places. Each place and people has a feel and culture and it's important to find a good fit.
What, you need to be 2% to get the same level quality of life as in Australia? Have you lived in Australia and other places? Because otherwise I'm calling BS on that.
Not planning on going off anytime soon, finished up a bach of Elec Eng and wanna get a proper job locally for a bit before considering going elsewhere.
I know people always say Australia is a great place to live, but they either don't say why, or are clearly cashed up people living in Sydney or Melbourne, ie the two places that somewhat resemble proper cities. My main point of view of Australia is here: >>16808419
