I spent from 1995 through 2014 in the Seattle area and now I'm in So Cal. It is not just them. Its you and them.

Go to where it is sunny and you will find more life.

No, it's not a legitimate question.

Your question is a non sequitur at best. The fact that you asked it makes assumptions. Those assumptions are focused on what, exactly? Do you think, based on my post (mentioning good values, traditions, class, dignity, and pride in being a woman), that no reciprocity in values would be returned? Did you think I would advocate locking a woman in a dungeon or what?

Yes...a non sequitur question for sure.

Southern California has more "life"?

Ok...I'll bite. In what way, exactly? What do you mean by "life"? And why do you think the sun has anything to do with it?
Just curious...no insult intended.

I've spent two decades here in So Cal to compare two decades in Seattle with. It is personal experience.

Ok...I just thought you could clarify so that I could better understand what you mean.

I've also spent some time (very briefly) in California. I've spent a fairly good amount of time in sunny Arizona as well. I was trying to understand how a sunny location has more life.

I guess we don't get an explanation.

I owned a home in super-sunny Arizona for a while. It was indeed a nice climate in the winter...and I even enjoyed the brutal heat in summer. But more "life" going on because of the sun? I never noticed that. If anything, when it was hot, most people stayed inside and were rather anti-social.
As for California? The most nasty drivers and rude folks I've ever encountered...including Seattle in comparison. They seemed to be angry at life....not enjoying it.
Just my observation.

Where sun coincides with beach, there is more life. I agree with you that in the desert SW, the sun tends to discourage life; everyone hides out indoors w/the A/C in the summers, and the hot summers can last 5 months. But in coastal CA, there is definitely Life.
