I head that people in Texas are not very friendly towards transplants, or at least not as friendly (treat transplants differently).....is this true???

Where did you hear that? My experience has been the exact opposite. There are many, many transplants here. If you act like a jackhole, you'll be treated as such. Otherwise, you'll have no problems.
Don't believe everything that you hear.

What happened to North Carolina? Dallas? Austin?


C'mon down for a visit and see for yourself.

Yeah...I have to concur. I've never met a native Texan who wasn't overly polite, which is one of the reasons we decided to move back after a short stint back in the midwest. I grew up in Illinois and couldn't stand the general rudeness that I experienced. That's not to say everyone up there was rude, but there was a far greater number of them than I ever experienced in Texas.

Really? You must be an upstater. I grew up in Central Illinois and those are the friendliest people anywhere.

Who on earth would say something like that?! Of course, if you come to Texas and promptly take to trashing it and everything related to it, you will be on the receiving end of some serious unfriendliness. However, if you treat others as you'd like to be treated, you'll be hard-pressed to meet a friendlier bunch of folks!

I am one of the newest transplants, and have no clue what you are talking about when it comes to local people not liking new people. Everyone I have talked to, even the young kid working at OfficeMax, have been really friendly!

I grew up in Normal (go ahead, snicker). But when my wife and I moved to the Chicago area, it was horrible. I also experienced it downstate in the St. Louis area too...so yeah, I guess it's a bad generalization, but it's how my view of Illinois is colored now even though I spent 24 years there before moving to Texas.

Not true.

I lived in New Jersey for 40 years. Then moved to Conroe,TX 77302 almost three years ago and have only seen and experienced the nicest people.

Moving to the Houston Area was the best thing I ever did.
