I have found this to be true. I have met some very nice people in and from California!

And for the record, the MO suburbs are not much better. This is why I continue to say that I really like KC a lot (between Briarcliff and Waldo and between State line and 71). The rest of metro KC? Not so much.

The central urban corridor of KCMO seems to be only getting better though and with all the new residential going up, it looks like KC central KC may be finally turning a major corner. If you live in downtown, midtown, plaza etc and only interact with people in those areas, I think your time in KC and your opinion of KC will be drastically different compared to people that might even live in KCMO but have to commute to suburban jobs.

I personally would not move back to KC unless I could live AND work in the city. I never want to deal with Johnson County culture again. Like I have said before, it's the main reason I don't miss KC. And the MO suburbs? Not enough going on there to move back for sure.

Having said that. KCMO sure looked pretty badass on Sunday Night football on Christmas. NBC did a good job showing off the city. You know that central urban corridor of KCMO .
I think a lot of people who like the urban core and hate the suburbs is a cultural/political reason or values, etc. I for one really can't stand the people in the urban core and prefer the values/cultures of the people in the suburbs. It's all one's perspective, if you're far left mentally, you will be fine in the urban core, if your values lean to the right, you would prefer the suburban locations.

I like suburbs and cities. I really like many of the suburbs around DC and Baltimore. I have always like the burbs around Denver. MSP has some nice burbs. So does Seattle. KC's suburbs are just average. Not great, but not terrible. JoCo would be okay if people there didn't think that JoCo was god's gift to humanity especially since I don't find JoCo to be impressive at all. I don't care about KC's politics, I just like the urban core of KCMO. The built environment etc.

The poster posted in another thread that put down all of KC, saying that KC women aren't friendly. People suggested it was the POSTER, and not KC, that was the problem. It would be nice if KCMO posters would stand up for our entire area instead of jumping in to put down Johnson County when an outsider puts down our area. I note that in the other thread people jumped in to defend the entire KC area when someone mentioned women on the Plaza being rude to him. In this one, though, KCMO posters jumped in to put down Johnson County. Sad.

Nuff said.

I don't disagree in theory, but there is a divide in mentality of people living in the city and those living in the suburbs on both the Missouri and Kansas side. Thus, many things this poster stated aren't completely made up, specifically JOCO white collar office environments. It's an interesting, but weird Metro.

The two areas are indeed quite different but the ugly butt-hurt stereotyping followed by the piling on by some other posters is sad. Especially when it seems that the persons core issues were inter-personal and based upon their post here they had to be at least part of the problem but haven't reached that step yet.

Some people are just unable to understand that not everybody thinks like they do or likes the same things and so view that as *wrong* while ironically blaming everyone else for being small minded.

I've lived in towns with 5000 people, urban\ethnic and gay parts of Chicago, semi-conservative suburbs and never had problems getting along with everybody to the point where I had to rant about an entire area and label them with ignorant blanket statements.

Perhaps some personal introspection is in order.
