- Wedding: December 2014 - 13th ~ TN
Because they seem to be flying around the bee right now I thought I would throw this one out there.
Some oldies but goodies I think I will squash right now: No we do not eat dirt, no we are not all Bible thumping, gun toting, redneck, white supremacist who shoot at everything that moves, and there are city and country girls / guys with style in the south.

@MrsUPS: well, I do associate it with conservative racist homophobic Biblethumpers. Obviously you all aren’t that way, but the fact is, the epicenter of that mindset in the U.S is in the South.
I also think of super friendly people, really good food, heat and humidity, green landscapes, awesome music (Nashville!) and bugs.

Good food, nice accent, but too hot!

sweet tea, green tree frogs, the Bible
Actually I pretty much lived in the South for awhile even though I’m not from there and I don’t live there now. I’d also throw humidity in there.

Mint juleps, willow trees, big white houses, muggy hot weather, drawls, politeness, big hair.
I think I’ve seen too many movies based on Nicholas Sparks novels.

But I realise y’all might think this is barely scraping the surface!

I’m just gonna throw this out there…
I’m from Kentucky and while my cousin is quite good looking, I am not attracted to him. Or anyone else I’m related to. And I do wear shoes in public (but the second I’m home, they’re coming off!)

I’m a southern girl through and through. I say y’all and ma’am like its going out of style and I am a bible thumper to boot. But racists homophobic and all of that is far from me. What I learned from the south is to give respect to everyone until they lose it. I’m a more modern souherner and christian though that believes in following the true teachings of jesus and not the hatred the old school church taught.
And there is jo denial that our food and music is incredible. tHe humidity though I could go without
Sorryvfo the typos. ThIs phone has a really small keyboardr

Peach pie. Humidity. Southern hospitality. Cute accents.

Country and bluegrass music
Friendly people – less uptight than in the Northeast
Walmart. I know Walmarts are everywhere, but I still think of Walmart
Rich people (oil tycoons, LOL)
I’m from the Northeast but I went to college in Austin, Texas. I remember when I first told my high school friends that I was going to Texas for school they all were saying things like, “are you going to ride a horse instead of using a car?” and “don’t come back as a cowgirl.” Ridiculous.

Im born and raised southern, sweet tea, football, warm weather, manners, hospitality 🙂 im southern and proud of it and no we are not all racist, baptist, homophobes but we do have some values that other parts of the country may disagree with (im in georgia and we are very conservative here outside of atlanta) but that is culture and every area of the country is unique.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
Pickup trucks, cowboy boots, rebel flags (ugh), gun-enthusiasts, hunting, country music, “yall”, high school football, NCAA (SEC!) football, sweet tea, BBQ, Tex-Mex, pecan pie, biscuits n gravy, grits, hot summers, mild winters (except this one, wtf), crappy but affordable/close beaches…
….and a little bit of chicken fried, cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right….. lol

i’m a georgia girl! i’d say football and tailgating, summers on the lake, sweet tea (although i hate it), country music, farm land and nice people!
I lived in DC for a while and I loved the city but people were much less friendly!

I’m from KY (we’re at the very northern edge of the South) so my views are slanted towards the positive, but I think of good food, good music (I adore bluegrass), warm and friendly people, big close-knit families, amazing accents, heat, and inability to deal with snow.
Not saying this is really ture, but many of the guys I grew up with claim that there is a direct correlation between percentage of attractive females and latitude (at least in the US) with southern girls being the prettiest. Apparently they kept notes while scouting colleges all over the country. I think it has a lot more to do with southern girls just putting in more effort. But there you go…
