Well, bless your heart. This is why I recommended for your own sake that you return to where ever it is that you come from. They no doubt probably miss your presence in this place and you will be much happier. It's OK, the South isn't for everyone.

Passive - aggressiveness is a predominant trait down here. They seem to prefer it to honesty! ok,maybe that honesty is a bit -in-your-face and sometimes somewhat confrontational, but, at least you know where you stand.

Reason number _______ for staying to yourself and not being friendly. Much less work at trying to figure out what people mean when they say something. Personally, I find it exhausting!

I also said earlier its the actions that count, not the words. As in I'm not the one complaining about an empty social diary, not being able to get anyone to date, and what was it you said again.... oh yeah,
"...I have had run ins with southerners sizing me up...guys come on, I am 6 foot 2 and 241 with plenty of life experience, the last thing anyone wants is there ass handed to them. "

I suppose the reader will have to decide for themselves, but I'm thinking it's not the Southerners, transplants, bug eyed martians, and anyone else making a home here that has the issue. Take my advice, find a place where someone of your character is appreciated and move there. The South isn't it. This topic is titled "Straight Answers" and that is about as straight as it gets. (in a nice sort of way)

Again, my point..... passive aggressiveness....keep it coming!

I am not complaining...just stated a few facts...look it up on forbes.com

"...I have had run ins with southerners sizing me up...guys come on, I am 6 foot 2 and 241 with plenty of life experience, the last thing anyone wants is there ass handed to them. "

OK...now Ill type slowly so you can understand honey! This means that I do not want to fight! Not worth it....No one, I mean "no one" including me wants to have their ass handed to them! I actually spent 16 years of my life also assessing situations and protecting the public from themselves..did I mention that...didn't think I needed to.

as far as actions...your passive aggressiveness through your words has proven my point 10 fold! Thanks!

That's an insult and I'm sure he knows it is.

That's not a "Straight Answer" or a friendly and honest response. In fact, that very well represents what he was talking about.

Well done

Wow, the poor OP must be looking elsewhere to move to if she has been reading these posts (she hasnt posted since the opening post). I have been reading the posts, but wish the 3 or 4 of you could get over it and move on, its getting boring reading you quote each other.
