I'm starting to lose my patience with this place, and fast. I came here admittedly with some preconceived notions - basically a more tolerant, liberal, open-minded, compassionate, and civil populace - but I'm consistently let down with this place.
You come to Canada and want every one to socialize with you before and after school but no one wants to socialize with you?,and you expect all the girls to accept your advances?,you are consistently getting subjected to the cold shoulder when confronting Canadians?, now all Canadians fall under your negative stereo type?......

Seems to me you might come off too pushy,too bold,too used to getting your own way immediately,too demanding.Canadians might not be the problem,the problem may be your inability to adapt to social situations that require a bit more tact and diplomacy.
Unfortunate that all Canadians will be subjected to your stereotype just because a few circumstances didnt meet with your approval in downtown Toronto..
Lets hope before you return to the USA you find a group that can change your current ways of thinking about Canadians as right now your perspective needs an adjustment ..

Well you can all rest easy. This member quite likes Canada in some of his other incarnations. If it walks, talks and sounds like a duck . . .
