Not all people are weird here. The common and friendly folks are the ones born in farming community's. Those are the friendly ones. We say Hello to anyone.

What utter nonsense. As though people born in the city like me are not friendly. If no one speaks to you, maybe you should examine the face you're showing the world.

Weird people can be found EVERYWHERE in the world. If you want to socialize with non-weird people in KC (unlike the ones you're describing), there are various places (clubs, bars, restaurants, and other social venues) you can hang out at across the metro.

Getting along with people here isn't as hard as it seems. The best thing to do is to listen to what someone else is talking about, and join the conversion. Impress them by sharing your knowledge about the subject (or try to at least act interested in what they are saying). Be positive, but don't interrupt or monopolize. The next step is to get to know that person and allow them to get to know you. Don't act too excited, but don't act bored either. Just approach it in a calm and collective manner.

Also, feel free to shake hands with people you're meeting for the first time; it's a sign of trust.

I have no problem starting up a chat with say, people in the grocery line, etc. Even in the "large city" such as St. Louis. Maybe I'm the weird one. Folks seem only too happy to say "HI".

I'm still having problems dealing with the younger guys, say in their 20's calling me "sir"
