Shoobie-
Let me make myself clear when I say that I no longer live in a rich neighborhood, just a stuck up neighborhood with people who think that they have money!
This aside, I agree that everyone expects you to be so PC now a days, and it's almost too hard and too difficult to keep up with!
Anyway, please invite the rest of us over when you move to your new rich neighborhood so that way you want be a loner anymore!!! !!!!

lol Yep. I got ya. I say down with being PC and up with more parties. I still say we should all head out to a bar and grill one night.

I say we trick one of the "rich" peoples to pay for it, ea?

I lived pretty close to you in Deep Creek before I moved to Charlotte. I also came from the North and found the friendliness of Virginia to be refreshing. Personally, I think it's just the folks you run into are pre-occupied with their own worries. Right now, alot of people are losing their jobs, homes, etc...Expenses are going up for everyone and a lot of people are worried about how they are going to live from one check to the next. It's hard to turn off the worry when it's such a huge concern with no end in sight. Like ever other city, there's also a few jerks who are jerks because they can be.
I still maintain that Hampton Roads is a friendly place overall.

Sad to hear of your unhappiness. We too live among a lot of retirees. When we go to a party it's quite often that the retirees out number the working folks ! Very few seem to mind the kids. ( we have two also) Quite a few of retirees that I have sold homes to specifically tell me that they want to live in a neighborhood with younger people.

We are not unhappy because the pros outweigh the cons. The area, overall, is a safe place to raise a family and has so much to offer. We have contemplated moving out of state for hubby's job, but every time we get serious about moving I tend to resist and we do not leave! Anyway, just my opinion about what we have encountered over the years. ~~~On a side note- Glad to see you back on here! Haven't seen you post in a while! Finally found a house that we liked but the listing price was incorrect..by a lot!!! Go figure!!!

Just got back from Jax, Fl today. I always have a good time when I go there to work, but I don't think I'd live there. The folks in the hotel business are so darn accommodating, you can tell that they HAVE to depend on these jobs to get their bills paid unlike some areas where they could take or leave what they do for a living and look at you like you should be glad they're there. I also looked at property along the coastway to St. Augustine. We love that area, but still, the cost of real estate compared to ours is about half, but the insurance is OMG sky high! Yep, the weather/storms/hurricanes has driven the insurance rates up. We'll stick around here for awhile. I may be heading out to LA for a week or so soon, if you want to know what unfriendliness is like, I'll give you a report from my hotel in Beverly Hills.
