    Hey I thought I would get this off my chest icon_razz.gif

    For some reason I am really atrracted to midwestern and southern guys icon_razz.gif

    I don't know why, it's just something about them lol

    I think they are all very good looking and are good ppl deep down icon_biggrin.gif The best ppl I have met in my life are from TX, Iowa and Nebraska.

    I don't know but southern guys that move somewhere other than the south seem to hide their accent. One guy told me that people would think he was dumb, etc. What the hell is wrong with people in America? You aren't dumb based on your accent. Don't hide who you are!!!

    Yes, thank you. icon_wink.gif

    In reality, there are nice people and agonizingly bad people everywhere. Is there actually a larger concentration of nice guys in the Midwest? I don't know. I seriously doubt it. For example, the vast majority of people I've met from California appeared a little conceited. Does that mean there are a bunch of arrogant people in California? Absolutely not. My experience has just not been a representative sample.

    I've only dated one southern man. Born and raised in Alabama. Loved the accent and the southern manners. Real humble. Pretty rare type of guy around here in LA. Wish there were more. icon_biggrin.gif

    I used to live in Missouri, and I still have my accent. See we rednecks talk in a sort of manner that make us sound like we has no smarts. icon_lol.gif

    I feel dumb when I do speak like that though. I hide it all the time being as... Not many symphonic metal vocalists sound southern/midwestern. They're either Finnish, Dutch, or something else. o.o

    Just so everyone knows Colorado is not in the midwest. It's a common misconception.

    Thanks. Ohio here, born and breed. Live in New England and much agree. Midwesterners are nice and waaay hotter, comparatively. With a few exceptions.

    Yes indeed, Colorado is not the Midwest. Midwest states touch one or more of the Great Lakes. I'm from Ohio. Loves me some midwesterners!

    Cause my parents are from Mississippi, I was raised there from 13 to 16, spent a good deal of my time in MS still, and I get teased about my accent, cause it's so mixed between southern and Irish. So normally I try to hide it all the time, but if I'm really tired it definitely comes out.

    Born in Tennessee. Grew up in south Georgia. Was there through college. Now I live in the midwest. I think midwesterners are far more grounded and level-headed people. Southerners are great people too. But the deep south does have its share of pettiness and backasswardness. I mean a great many of them still wave the Confederate flag in their front yards every day of the year. Not saying everyone down south is like that. But there are enough to make it a place I never want to move back to.

    Regarding the loss of accent, I've been told by many that they are shocked that I grew up in the south because they say I have no accent whatsoever. On the other hand, if I get on the phone with my parents who still live in Georgia, I've been told I swing back into sounding southern immediately, as if I never left. I don't even realize I do it. So I'm when you say "Don't hide who you are," not everyone is hiding just because their accent goes away. For some people, like myself, it just happens without even a second thought. I'm not ashamed of my southern roots. But my accent is not something I control. It comes and goes based on whomever I'm in a conversation with and I don't even think about it.

    I sometimes miss the overall friendliness of people back home in Nebraska but other areas have nice guys too in my experience.

    For me if a guy is open-minded and is not resistant to learn new things & have an adventurous personality to progress and live the life with me, wherever he's from, is just great.

    People generally define themselves as grounded, down to earth, when they're from Midwest & South or any country side. This is nice, only & only, if they are ready to embrace the outside world as it is, since they moved from their ex-places. I found them little resistant and stuck in their local conservative outlook for some reason. They idealize their old way way of doing things & local town too much. That creates a rift between us.

    But I totally appreciate their hospitality & manners, which is important to me

    I'm glad that I grew up in Ohio because I think, in general, the people there are more down to earth.

    I agree that they are hotter, and it is because guys from the south and the midwest tend to be a lot more down to earth and less full of themselves.

    That is the hottest thing a guy could be.

    I was born in Texas and growing up I spent a lot of time in California. I would sometimes get teased as a kid for my accent or use of words. When I hit middle school, I started to hide my accent and removed a lot of southern slang from my vocabulary. I now totally regret it, but I totally got used to it.

    I now live in California but I get the question nearly on a daily basis, "If you're from Texas how come you don't sound like it?" and I have to go through an explanation. LOL

    But hearing a Texan accent makes me all nostalgic and I can spot it from a mile away. Now it is really hard for me to make the accent and it makes me really sad! Oh well. My best friend is hardcore Texan Cowboy with the thickest accents I've ever heard, and even after living with him I have never been able to pick it back up. icon_sad.gif

    I spent the later half of my childhood in the south (Georgia). I guess I can say it was an overall good experience with a few exceptions. I found small towns to be friendly. People know one another and tend to trust one another more.

    I also got to do things I would not have done growing up in the city .. work on a farm, drive trucks and tractors at 13, explore the woods, etc .. it was an adventure I have many fond memories of. I also managed to pick up a bit of an accent ironically after being teased about my accent when I moved Georgia from California.

    Living in rural America can really be peaceful and it has an effect on you.
