They do lol. You get 40 year old moms who want a Lexus GX470 and a dog and a husband who works as a partner at a big downtown law firm or some kind of business exec down in Chicago. They will go to Starbucks and cart the kids around and act icy all day long. I've seen some pretty women up here in Chicagoland and Hilary isn't bad looking at all but man their personalities would turn me off. They want too much, into the consumptive culture and all of that, too high strung, high maintenance women.

Vasinger you should at least acknowledge that there are good looking women up north if you don't happen to care for them or their personality.

I am not interested in Northern women because I wouldn't share that much in common and I find they lack a lot of the qualities that Southern women have : easy going and laid back personalities, sweet and supportive, charm, faith. And indeed the South has more of a pageant culture and women who want to dress femininely and have good manners. I'm not a stereotypical man but some southern women are pretty good cooks too and of course that's something nice that comes with the territory and if you think I'm a lazy man I like to cook too and will do the barbecuing. That stuff I learned from daddy.

I find the Southern accent charming and ingratiating. Southern women really know how to make a man feel good and treat him well. And what do they get in return? Well some guys aren't nice and then that's a terrible arrangement but some guys are nice as well. I find it weird that Northern women want to find jerks or dumb jocks that are go nowheres during college and then they do a total 180 and are looking for a guy thats rich in their late 20s and early 30s. Human nature I guess, I've always considered myself self sufficient and I don't care if a girl has a dime to her name or gets $10,000/month in trust fund checks.

I echo your observations on the northern culture but I had also lived in the south for awhile,long enough to get to know 'what's going on'-
From what I see sure the southern women can be sweet and all but in my experience kind of 'drifty' with men,meaning they don't always commit fully to one man and also get around alot. So they're not all as subservient as people might think

Yes, they are drifty. However, the south has more beauties per capita than anywhere else. I think the ugliest of the uglies come from 3 places: upper New England, Upper Mid-West, and the Pacific Northwest. Just my opinion, though.

I must agree that the Upper Midwest is not a place you go to find attractive women in general.

My girlfriend from Japan visited in February and we went shopping on the Mag Mile. Yes, she went shopping, I went to the cashier with the credit card.
Women the world over are the same.

Still, Chicagoland has the mass of these people in such large quantities that I cannot stand Deerfield or Schaumburg unless it's late on Saturday night and most of them are inside watching their plasma TVs!

At the Greater Cleveland or Metro Detroit or St Louis level, the crass consumption suburban culture is tolerable. Chicagoland is just nuts!
... I hear Los Angeles is worse.

The gorgeous ones make you regret you went after them, Polish women especially. They want to wear the pants in the family, even the ugly ones!

Pacific Northwest. Hands down. The problem with the folks there is that you never really know whose the guy and whose the gal. The guy usually has long hair and the girl is wearing pants, hairy armpits, flannel, and has short hair. Yikes!

Girls in Colorado aren't too bad. The south is quite obviously the most beautiful people place in America.

This whole thread is hilarious! I rarely read posts in the Gen. U.S. forum, but the title of this one caught my eye!

Anyway, I'm pretty sure that every state has its fair share of pretty and ugly people. But being from the South, I guess I'm biased and think that we have the best!

Ugliest? Miami has a lot of short, fat, dumpy girls and guys, most of the hotties are tourists. Here in the Keys the women are sun-dried raisins and quite scary, but since most men here are too they get along fine. Best looking tourists I have seen were from Minnesota and Iowa. Everyone was just too old to tell the difference.

That only says that states like mississippi place a greater emphasis on girls being in contests from an early age on up. by the time that they are in their late teens, they are much more practiced in beauty pageants and how to win them. my sisters were born and raised in texas (as I). when they were aged 4 or 5, they were in beauty/talent contests for little girls and then teens. there was an emphasis placed on it just like football is for southern boys.
