    Prefer to live?

    This is a paragraph of mine. Please correct it to me. Thanks a lot.

    Some people prefer to live in a small town. In contrast, Others prefer to live in a big city. I think it depends on each person and their habits, hobbies and another reralation. Although I am young person, I like living in the a small town.
    After I finished university degree, I moved to a small town to live. My parents and also my friends obsolutalely oppose the transer but I still did as my
    intend.

    Hopefully, other members would give you some better feedback.

    Do you really need In contrast there? Does the reader need help figuring out that there is a contrast?
    Some like it hot. Some like it cold.
    Some like them big. Some like them small.
    Some like them short. Some like them tall.
    Some like to be alone. Others like crowds.
    Some like peace and quiet. Others prefer excitement.
    Eh?

    After I finished my degree at the university, I moved to a small town to live. My parents and my friends absolutely opposed the transfer, but I still did what I intended to do.
    What do you think?
