Well, hello, MMM community!
I'm 28yo, architect, and I live very far away from most of you - in Brazil. Things are different enough around there to make me spend a lot of time searching for alternatives to the common solutions (the hardest being the lack of craigslist and used goods for sale in general), but that only adds to the challenge! I live on a huge city, so most of the problems are the same (namely food prices, terrible commutes, rent, etc).
It wasn't me who found MMM, but my husband (well, we skipped the whole getting married thing, but we do live together). It was great, because since forever I've been the crazy one in the couple: I wanted to have a less time-consuming job, move to a smaller city, find a job that allowed me to work from home, have my garden, chickens and whatnot. It was close to early retirement, but all I could make him picture was a life of frugality and no pleasure, with uncertainties and hard to sustain. I almost fell from my chair when he came home all happy saying he found this awesome blog where he figured he could get financially independent or close to it very soon, and moving to smaller city was cheaper, and who the hell needed a new car or clothes, or expensive toys? He suddenly realized simple life can be good, and I'm all the happier for it.
Now we're working toward this goal, and of course I must admit I'm still learning and fighting with "needs" myself. We're excited, though!
