Regardless where you live in the dmv, watch out for the Diplomatic plates. worse than d/m/v or mini vans (say thank you carlingtonian ) combined.

well, that's a given, but really I don't see too many cars with diplomatic plates around, at least not as much as cars with MD plates, I mean like every other car on 66 seems to have MD plates. Are they here on official business? Are they visiting? Are they just passing through? Why do they have to do it at rush hour?

I have many Diplo. cars in my apt complex. Living in Eastern FFX, I see them as often as PA auto plates.I live near the"Ministry of Culture/Saudi Embassy" here in Nova. Diplo. cars are not limited to business. They drive them everywhere- Mall, Wegmans, etc....Remember, In Sharia Law countries like SA, women are not allowed to drive. But, I see them driving here so they must get "dispensation". Yes, driving in Niqab.

seeing all these maryland plates on 66 reminds me of that old song by The Cars "I don't mind you coming here, wasting all my time, cuz when your'e standing oh so near, it makes me lose my mind, yeah!"

I agree overall NOVA and the school systems as well are better. But the top 10 in Montgomery County seem comparable to the top 10 in Fairfax Co. I can also say for a fact that George Mason is ranked near the top in the nation yet they don't send kids to the top colleges at even close to the rate that B-CC does (even when taking size of school into account). So maybe the way schools are being ranked is not in alignment with what the colleges find important.

No. Anywhere from VA to Southern areas has better looking girls. Apparently, it skips MD, then PA girls are amazing, NYC, Boston, etc....

So, Norther Virginia girls all look like models, but the thing is, all the amazing girls that look like Victoria Secret models live near where I live and not Clarendon, Ballston, or VA Square. You'd think that, but they all live else where.

Why would you want to live somewhere loud and crowded all the time? I rather date a girl away from there, then take a 10 minute cab to Clarendon, and spend $200 on food and drinks, then live at Clarendon and spend $50 on food and drinks, because Clarendon housing market is that opportunistic for poor construction (wood floors, and not concrete).

Besides, the people who live there are superficial, and all from california or have rich parents that pays for everything. - Yes. Honestly, that's not someone who I want to have a relationship with. What does that say about the girl? Someone who never had to go through struggle? She defeats all feminism and hard working guys who had to pay for their college education (1st tier), and had to work hard (without connections) will think they're idiots, like K or Paris. The biggest thing is that most of those guys, who's self made, and will succeed sooner or later and will always survive will think about "what sort of mother this woman make for my child". Yes, this is what guys don't tell girls. All guys think about this at one time or the other. The guy who marries a prostitute without a college degree, if he isn't a dumb ass, he thinks, she's strong, able to handle herself, and able to make it on her own if I'm not there. The guy who marries a billionaires daughter, "she's funny, she got her stuff together, she's down to earth, and she understands that I am not marrying her for her father's money, but I'm ambitious enough to make enough money than the father in law without any financial help, because my balls are made out of steel".

That's how I was raised... But it's hard to meet girls like that in the city, because everyone wears a mask to protect themselves int he public...

Why does it feel like I'm leaking brain cells when it comes to reading some of the responses on here?

Also it is my perception that MD is older and NOVA is newer since the post 9/11 boom, and to me that is contributing to the additional cleanliness as compared to MD urban and suburban areas.
My wife, who grew up in Howard County and later worked and lived in MoCo, said this exact same thing after moving to VA.

You will also see Saudis, Kuwaitis and Qataris partying hard, dropping big $$$ bills on bottle service at all of the DC lounges/clubs.
