You know what I find tedious? I find people who feel some sort of urge to put down other regions tedious. I really don't get it. You like NYC? That's great! Is it possible to talk about what you love about NYC without insulting other areas?

I love Texas and the south and I'm not crazy about urban areas - not even Texas urban areas . But that's just my own personal take on it. For me, it's entirely possible to talk about what I love about east Texas or the south or wherever, without insulting or stereotyping other regions.

But hey, that's just me.

It just comes across as someone who builds themselves up by tearing others down when people do that.

Houston and Dallas are far from boring. Same could be said for Austin and San Antonio. Texas is diverse and has two of the larger cities in the US.

Hey now!!!!! Stop making fun my Friday's and Sat's nights, nothing wrong with booze and "cheap girls". I did find a lot of what you described when I traveled all over Europe. I do agree that European women are more friendly and easier to hook up with than American girls.

You are crazy. Texas boring?

I went to Austin a few weeks ago and it is bustling with creativity, food, music, and unique culture. It was one of the funnest cities I've been to.

The more I read your posts IRENE the more I realize that you are not well traveled like you pretend to be.

I agree that was a stupid post. Austin is an amazing US City, Texas is anything but boring. The South is not boring either, its an amazingly diverse region geographically with great cities like Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, Miami, Charleston, SC. No clue what this guy was babbling about. Lot of stupid people commenting on City Data, you get numb to it.

Yes I have been to Atlanta too and liked it.

People on here really like to talk out of their a**...I try to ignore them, but sometimes it is just too much. Lol

I do not know ANYONE who thinks, even subconsciously, "I need some social activity, I think I'll go grocery shopping."
But you do know that many people do exactly what you said they don't do, right?

Let's step back, you admitted that you are familiar with farmer's markets. Are you aware that farmer's market sell grocery and people hang out there? Just a simple yes or no would do.

This is an example of a gathering at a particular farmer's market:

Yes it is.

Just because it's a chore, does it mean it must be boring?
