LOL!!! Thanks for explaining the post to me. Otherwise I never would have guessed that it was written as a putdown of Charlotte. It never would have occurred to me!! I mean, why would anyone bother to compose a post that implied that Charlotte was a small rural town where he could learn how to farm? Now I realize it was a very humorous, clever post. Otherwise I would have simply thought the op was an idiot.

And no offense, these post couldn't have been written by an adult. Only children would write such rubbish.

And ATL is not a "big city" The way described in the OP..... That's more NYC, LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, San Fran.... Not Atlanta lol.


Calling Charlotte overgrown small town is the same as calling Pittsburg, Cinncinati, Austin, Portland, Denver, Detroit, Baltimore, Columbus, Nashville, Memphis, Cleveland, San Antonio, etc. a small over grown town with farms....


Do you realize how ignorant your post are? We are perfectly content here. I personally would hate living in Spraw-lanta. You can dish it so I assume you can take it; Atlanta, for a large town, lacks culture, lacks density and Wayyyy to suburban compared to its peers such as Boston & Chicago by a longgggg shot. (I wouldn't even put ATL & Chicago in the same category, but I'm just humoring you).


There's really no reason anyone from CLT to go to ATL anymore that we can't get here (and what we don't, there is Columbia). Our theme park is going to be phenomenal, our airport also has tons of non stops (just got 4 new Euro flights today to Brussels, Lisbon, Manchester, and Barcelona and already service to Madrid, Rome, Munich, Frankfurt, Paris, London & Dublin and also Brasil (Sao Paulo & Rio De Janeiro).


Besides, DC is close also.

(for the record; I love Atlanta... And Charlotte and most all cities)

I am thinking about moving to Charlotte because I have heard good things about it. I am a little nervous about the change of culture though. How will the natives react to me? I've seen in movies where a stranger walks into small town restaurant and everyone goes silent and just stares. I know that is most likely an exaggeration, but it still makes me a bit nervous. I'd like to meet people because I have no friends or family in NC.

I also need to think about employment. I know nothing about farming, but I'm very eager to learn. I just need to find someone patient enough to take a chance on me. The thought of working on a farm with the open fields all around me really excites me.

Maybe I'll meet a pretty woman and finally settle down. Anyway, I'd love to hear suggestions from those of you that live in Charlotte. Any advice is much appreciated; like how to speak to the locals or the best places to live for single guy in his late 20's.
Oh.

I did get a chuckle out of the OP's post. It does, after all, satire many of the questions we see in the CLT forum...

What a weirdo. What is the mental process of someone who has...anger?...toward a city and spend energy on a public web forum "pretending" to....never mind.

That is really weird.

Well, I am going to do something I swore I would not do in this thread or the others started by the OP (and his new user ID's). I am going to "feed the troll" by posting an answer to your question. Having minored in psychology, I see it this way. This poor soul does have issues, we all know that. He is clearly lonely and begging for attention. As long as we keep responding, we make him hungrier and hungrier. As far as why he "loves" Charlotte so much, well....I can only assume it is "city-envy". But the root of his issues go way deeper than that I am sure.
