10 Signs You Need To Move Out Of Montreal

A lot of people are complaining about Montreal not being a good fit for them... Well, guess what? If you're not a fan of our city, then you can totally move out to another place. It's really annoying to hear people complain about where they live... Remember this post? Yeah, Montreal doesn't actually suck, you suck. Here are ten signs proving that you might want to think about moving out of here and testing your luck someplace else.

1. You're not cool enough

Montreal is for cool people only, sorry not sorry. Did you know that Montreal's Mile End was ranked #2 most hipster neighborhood in the world? Now you know. So if you're not hip enough, you know what you gotta do.

2. You're not a fan of winter sports

Montreal is the best place for snowboarding, skiing, sledding, tubing... Oh, and if you're not a fan of hockey, then you're definitely going to feel like an outsider in our city. We love our team! Twenty four stanley cups, baby. Go Habs Go!

3. You hate food

If you're not into savoury, gooey, yummy things like poutine - you definitely don't belong in Montreal. We love our food.

4. You don't like to have a good time

Montrealers love to party. Here is THE place to have the time of your life. There are parties literally every day in Montreal. If you're more into "Netflix and chill", you can totally stay in and relax. If none of these alternatives look plausible to you, then you're free to leave our glorious city.

5. You don't understand festivals

Montreal is a city of festivals. Early to mid summer is when the festivitiespeak and then they continue year round. If you're not a fan of Just for Laughs or Formula One... then you're obviously not normal, sorry.

6. You don't like the language of love

We all know that Montreal is a bilingual city... and French is the language of love. It sounds like sweet melody of birds singing among rainbows and butterflies. If you don't like French, then you definitely need another home town.

7. You're closed minded

Montreal is a very liberal and open minded city. We encourage and support different cultures, ethnicities and races. We're super friendly too! Like, if someone steps on our foot, we apologize.

8. You're not romantic

Montreal is one of the most romantic cities in North America thanks to its perfect integration of European architecture and class. Not convinced? Take a walk in Old Port at sundown... if it doesn't take your breath away, we have a serious problem.

9. You're not good looking enough

If you haven't been blessed with a beautiful face and a great physique, we don't want you here.

10. You have a bad sense of humor

If you didn't understand the sarcastic and humorous undertone of this post, then you might want to move to another place where everyone is grumpy and serious.
