I said I've met good ones, that was my opinion of the rest. I'm not judging anybody, I simply stated blue collar wages (even trade workers) are not all that great.

Don't worry Sox. Most people in GA are very welcoming, and at least in the Atlanta area they've quit fighting the civil war. There are many transplants and people from all over here and it's never been a problem for us. If you live further out you may encounter a bit more of the more hardcore southern types, but most people are very nice here.

As was mentioned, you can't come here and tell everyone how you would have done it where you came from, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be yourself.

Thats the biggest thing. You are welcome if you can at least partially assimilate. I am one of those farther out, more hardcore southern types. I am just tired of hearing from northerners that they don't like it here once they move down. Find out a little about the history and culture of an area before you jump in feet first then, you know? I have no problem with people moving here. I think it's a great place, being fairly well traveled in North America for my age. But just don't start whinin' please!

I do see alot of people on here complaining about the slower, conservative lifestyle they've moved in to. It makes me wonder why they ever moved to Georgia to start with. My goodness, that's why I am checking into the area. The slower more conservative lifestyle is what we are looking for. That's what's so great about the internet. Information, information, information.
