I am thinking of upping sticks and moving 25 miles south to Sheffield. Wakefield hasn't been a happy place for me, or successful in terms of jobs. I have a chance of a job in Sheffield, although not a terribly well paid one. However, progression may be available, and I can always look for a better role once I'm there.
The thing is I don't know anyone there apart from person, so is it easy to make friends there? It may beg the question why I want to live there, but I have a son in Leicester so it's only just over an hour by train. Also, I have also lived in Nottingham and have friends there, so closer still. Also, my friends in West Yorkshire won't be too far either.
As for the city, I like Sheffield and it's one the edge of the Peaks. I'm not overly keen on parts of the city centre, but it's being done up so good things seem on the way. Also, I have to be honest, I find Sheffield people just normal and nice without anything to prove, unlike Leeds and Manchester (sorry if you hail from either).
So, for an outgoing, friendly, 43 year old male, is Sheffield a good choice?
