  • You are from the North? Most Northerner's do not talk like that. We pride ourselves on proper dialect. I've never experienced any problems moving down south.

  • I'm a proud Yankee from Maine and I have many southern friends. The war is over and didn't know this was still going on, but hold your head high and be proud of being a Yankee.........It will be interesting to come back to this question and see the feed back you will get if any from the southern girls.

  • Because they lost the war. Back in the day. That's why they act like that. LOL I am originally from Washington state. Live on Oklahoma now. I'm a Northerner too.

  • i think alot of northerners make fun of people with deep south accents and assume they're stupid rednecks. so i think it goes both ways. and then again there are people from both sides that could care less too lol

  • My family moved to the NE from the South when I was in high school and I was terrified! All my friends had told me that NE was all Yankees and that they were snobs and mean! lol
    I think it is just a difference in style - I've found people in NE to be less superficially friendly & more reserved. And the pace of life is faster. But believe me, those sweet Southern ladies - butter wouldn't melt in their mouths, but watch your back when you turn around (not everyone, but any of you all from the South know what I mean).
    I do know that most Southerners have a big problem with anyone trying to seem dumb putting on a Southern accent.

  • Heck no, I was born in Louisiana and raised in Ky. and we always meant“ come back " I feel we're very kind and good-nature people. When I moved to Oregon I thought wth, these people are such snobs! Say hi to them, and they look at you like you just took their first born. Was always asked when am I going back, they didn't want me here, LOL But I stayed, figure they could use some good ole southern hospitality :)

  • No, I don't have anything against people from the north. I just wish that they realized sometimes the way we were raised are different. I know they can very from family to family, but typically people from the north and south were raised different as a whole.
