Quality of life in Lisbon is one of the best in the world. The weather and temperatures are great, you can easily go for a walk in January because the weather is excellent all year.
Public transportation is delayed sometimes. The prices are very low but the housing is getting more and more expensive because of the tourist boom. I've never heard a man insulting a woman like someone said in the comments, and I've been living here for decades.
In my humble opinion, and having travelled to more than 30 countries, Lisbon is one of the best cities to live.

The public transportation here is a joke. Everything is delayed every single day and every single day they are asking sorry for perturbations. You can easily wait for metro for 8-10 minutes in a rush hour.
It is almost impossible to rent an apartment in the city, only in the cities nearby and if you work in Lisbon, you will spend around 3 hour for commuting every day, can be even worse.
Only private doctors can help you, in the free health centres their job is to get rid of you in fast and rude way.
Extremely hot during summer.
Men insults women, especially foreign women by whisteling and saying dirty stuff.
