It wasn't that you moved to the south, it was that you moved to a small, rural town. That is a problem indicative with small, rural towns. You would have had the same reception anywhere.

I try to be as pleasant and nice as possible. I am originally from RI, but lived in AZ where people wave and talk to their neighbors. I had alot of people who were quite nasty to me because I was a Yankee or just really cold. It made my job that I usually love really unpleasant. I
do work with the elderly population. my husband who works with young adults didnt have same experiences. I also
didn't have that same experience when I worked closer to Charlotte. Here in SC, I have never had that issue. I think because the military bases were here people were used to transplants or maybe just friendlier to begin with!! We felt more at home here after 6 months than we ever did in NC.
Funny, I have tenants from RI who tell me they're amazed at how friendly everyone is down here compared to there. It does seem true that most of the people I meet in Charleston are from somewhere else and not a small number of them from Ohio (and Michigan for some reason)
