Agreed. I preferred the Post to the Enquirer. I just happened to run into an isolated jerk.

Anywho, when I lived there five years ago, I remember that it was a fairly friendly place. Now, it's more of a mixed bag. I didn't think Florence, in particular, was a very friendly town at all--not rude, just that the folks are rather sour and expressionless. The service at the restaurant I ate at there was nothing to brag about, either. Oh yeah, I called up to NKY last week to inquire about a job, and the particular employer's rep was, to put it nicely, brash and arrogant. I guess enough "sour folks" have moved to NKY to, well, "sour" the place, and word has it that they're mostly moving over there from Cincy and Dayton.

I'll go back up there once more next week, as I am "re-scoping" the area to find new "singles-friendly" places to live. If it has changed as much as I think it has, then I will rule out the Cincinnati-N. Kentucky metro area...which would be sad , since I've ruled out and generally have a feeling of "bleech, I why would anybody live here for life?" with practically every place I've lived and visited in my native Kentucky.

Anywho, I've about ruled out Indy, St. Louis, and Denver. The "middle America" types of places aren't for me at all, the more I look into them.

So, I'll stick with the Southern and Texan cities, particularly the latter genre, as those are what I was considering in the first place. The more I think about it, I guess Kentucky is more of a "Southern lite" state and isn't Southern enough for me in terms of culture, hospitality, weather, and now educational and career aspirations...I can't wait to leave Kentucky! I am a friendly, outgoing individual and want to be around people in a place and culture that fosters that.

Good luck to ya.
