It all, already runs into each other!

Why in the hell are people arguing over this non-sense?

The DFW Metroplex. Get it?......guess not

The city cultures of Dallas and Fort Worth are very different plus Fort Worth would get subsumed into Dallas instead of it being a partnership of equals. Have you lived in the cities for any length of time? The suburbs don't count.

Yes in both. Neither are as isolated from each other developmentally as they once were. I've met people great, and not so much in both. And, also the suburbs of each which do count these days.

I would not necessarily call it "homogeneous" as far as "city culture" goes, but certainly much less isolated than say 30 years ago.

Yes there is a difference between the "Stockyards" and "Deep Ellum" oh for sure.

But I think people make far to big a thing out of all this, many times remembering the bad experiences, and nothing else.

Someone who was not familiar with the DFW Metro area could drive from Mesquite on I30 all the way into Ft. Worth, and if they didn't know any different, they might mistake it for one sprawling Metropolis, which in many ways it is. So much of it "all seems to run together".

I've lived all over the DFW Metro area since 1968.

Perhaps my perspective is different than at least some since I do not have this absurd "us vs. them" mentality about all this.

I love most all my North/South/East/West Dallas/Ft Worth brothers and sisters.

I don't meet many strangers and am generally a people lover.

It's all one area......Ft.Worth is a large neighborhood in DFW and Dallas is larger neighborhood in DFW.

Simple as that.

Fort Worth has 9 fortune 500 companies 7 that is within city limits. Some major cities do not have one. The Texas Motor Speedway is in Fort Worth, but yet commentators still refer to it as the Texas Motor Speed Way in Dallas. This is very disrepectful to the citizens of our great city. These type of things have to stop and needs to stop now. We are the fastest growing city in North Texas, the state of texas, and the nation needs to know that we are a force to be recond with. FORT WORTH PRIDE!!!!!
It has everything to do with sports teams.

Until FT Worth gets its own sport franchises it will always be in the shadow of Dallas because of the Dallas Cowboys, Mavericks and Stars.

The Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable sports franchise in the entire world.

People from out of state tend to be surprised when I tell them that FT Worth is a separate city from Dallas. Most of the people I work with thought that FT Worth was just a section or suburb of Dallas like Arlington.

If any of yall are familiar with Phoenix a lot of people thought that FT Worth was another Tempe, or Glendale.

Section or suburb of Dallas like Arlington.... nice try... but Arlington is a suburb of Fort Worth. Commit a crime or be subject to a lawsuit there and your trial will take place in downtown Fort Worth.

Sorry, just had to put that out there, lol. Dallas people have trouble staying in their lane. Hehe (I'm joking by the way, just keeping the rivalry alive)

Im curious if people from Arlington state they are from Ft Worth or Dallas.

Most people I know from Grapevine, Southlake, Colleyville will tell people they grew up in a suburb of Dallas.

Not sure. I know a lot of people from Arlington but they say they are from Arlington. It's probably different depending on where they are when they are asked. Stubborn FW people are probably the only ones that would be in Belgium telling people they are from Texas and when pressed will say Fort Worth and mention it is close to Dallas. Everyone else in the metro will probably just say from Texas. Then just say Dallas. Lol
