I don't get it...many of you want diversity and but your prejudices get in the way..

"Wv women...fat and expensive...bad...uneducated and trailer living...ugly...fat people everywhere, uneducated people everywhere...

women with no teeth..."

Make up your minds...do you want diversity or not.

The overall beauty of the state. The mountains and lakes, Blackwater Falls, New River, small towns, etc., Some of the most beautiful in the nation.

Least: Politics and the Charleston machine. Old style Yellow Dog Democrat politics brought to you daily since June 20th, 1863.

Worst thing for me is the rude people I encounter and the potholes I hate! I feel sorry for my poor vehicle. But the roads here are the worst I have ever driven on. Not all the people were rude but up near wheeling they sure were.

I like the caring intelligent old-fashined people!!! the beautiful countryside, the dense nature/animals such as deer, chipmunks, birds, and the relaxed way of life, no rude hustle bustle I've experienced elsewhere. On the otherhad I dislike the great amount of run down old building/ eyesores that are everywhere.

pros:
peaceful
relatively safe, can still leave my doors unlocked
first in line for govt development, FBI, raytheon, lockheed
spoiled by great skiing, outdoor activities to do within a couple hours drive at most

cons:
white trash mentality
kids getting pregnant and married in HS or right after then barely scraping by
non-progressive attitude
racism and general intolerance
lack of ethnic racial diversity
few social/cultural activitiesdoes not foster young professionals (educated locals worth hiring are peacing out of the area)
DRUGS.. so many people abusing/selling painkillers and various drugs
general attitude of low ambitions/expectations among native students both k-12 and college
poor health habits, so many fat people, people that smoke like chimneys and don't take care of themselves

Hate to sound like a shallow b****rd but after being through my share of WV and the country WV does have an awful lot of big women and women missing teeth. Although it's true the women in WV are also probably lower maintenance than women in many parts of the country and appreciate the simpler things in life. As blinkerfluid pointed out WV women marry young so WV has a lack of women in general, at least a lack of available and desirable single women.

Totally agree with your list of cons...huge non-progressive attitude, and all around intolerance. New ideas are not welcomed with open arms or looked at with an open mind. In WV people still look at interracial relationships like it's a sin or something. It's really laughable how backwards and behind the times the state is. People in WV believe all the stereotypes about different ethnic groups and so on, they don't even try to learn anything about their culture. All they know is WV hunting, the Steelers, steak frys and Bud Light lol.

Oh well I guess we'll always have our low crime rate, lack of traffic, and outdoor activities...we don't have much but we'll always have that lol.
