Which US states are friendly or unfriendly?

Postby zacb » Sun Dec 29, 2013 4:34 pm

Could you give me your experience with various states? I have lived in Michigan (Northern) for most my life, and it seems what while they are nice to you at first, after a honeymoon period people don't like you as much (with a few exceptions). It seems unless you are in a clique, you are kinda screwed. What have your experiences been with various states and provinces (for Canada)?

Illinois, hands down, is the least friendly state in America!

Liberal states on average are less friendlier than conservative states.

Haven't tried to join a clique in recent memory, but (outside of shady places and one-off idiots) customer service is trending better and better. :D

Yeap. I learned that the hard way. Well except Alabama. Alabama wasn't mean; it was just closed-minded
when it came to interracial dating and miscegenation.

But states like Arizona and non-gringo Texas (San Antonio, El Paso, Southern TX), I was smashing White women and light-skinned Tejana/Chicanas 2nd naturedly.
Even Houston I was doing alright with Black American and South African mulatto women.

But Dallas and Austin, I don't do so well with any race of women there.

I'd agree with you on that one. I'd also say the farther north you go the least friendly folks become.

Interesting responses, especially comments about more liberal states / northern states being less friendly. Depends on what you mean by "friendly".

As recent as ten years ago, I used to do a lot of travelling in the U.S. My observation and experiences was that I found most people in the Southern states to be unfriendly (read: wary, intolerable, subtly racist) to strangers, "Yankee city-slickers", non-Caucasian types and anybody considered to be an outsider or foreigner. This was also applicable if your experiences and ideas differed from them. As I got to know some of those "good 'ol boys', I found them to be very closed-minded, opinionated, and discriminatory in general. This was especially evident in small/mid-size towns.

The Midwest and Northern states were more tolerant, civil, open-minded and accepting of diversified ideas and people, albeit indifferent, which I didn't mind. I had no problems in Vancouver, Victoria, B.C. either.

Depends on what you mean by friendly. Most people think politeness is friendliness, even if no one wants to go out out or hang out with them or invites them anywhere. So their definition is their different from ours.

If you mean superficial friendliness then some states are good for that such as Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Texas, etc. Basically I find that people who live around beautiful nature are more calm, relaxed and easygoing, such as in Colorado or Utah. They aren't as toxic or angry as people in Los Angeles for sure.

I have a question for you all. If we moved to conservative Republican US states such as Utah, Texas, Kentucky, Wyoming, Nebraska, etc, would have better social connection and make friends more easily, since those states have people that share some of our values and are probably more down to earth than liberal states like California, Washington state, and New York are?

I agree, there is no southern hospitality in the northern states, everyone seems to hide in their houses and not socialize with anyone.
