Catch 22

Where are the most friendly people in the USA

Recommended Posts

I have to say that I`m getting fed up with the overall attitude of people here on the east coast.

The last two times I became unhappy with my location ===I moved.

I`m getting that feeling again.The trouble this time is that I`m addicted to salt fishing and don`t want to do without an ocean,but I also love the sweet water too.

In  your opinion, where to go to find a better class of people.

Thanks C22

Get a bigger boat and live on the ocean.  Less people the better.

Abraham Lincoln is attributed with saying, "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be." A new location won't change that. Good luck.

PA is landlocked so we are out of the contest. Besides we are mostly grumpy and surly with an occasional dose of crazy thrown in for good measure.

At your local Walmart.  They're called greeters.

I have met some grumpy greeters lol

Good ol Kentucky son. Man I love it there. Good friendly folk. (Usually) and that is refreshing being from an inner city in Michigan

I agree. My wife and I moved from LI to upstate NY a few years after 9/11 It was too crowded and unsafe for us to raise our son. I got laid off and thought a change of scenery would do us some good.

The people up here hate us "flat landers" even after a decade plus of being here. They hear that accent and you can see their whole complexion change. We met a few good people but they are few and far between.

Being a retired member of the Military I had the opportunity to visit many of the States in our great Nation.   The friendliest people that I personally have met as a whole reside in South Carolina.

I've met plenty of great folk here in Virginia.

Only a few knuckleheads worthy of ... well,
chastisement, or outright anger. But you're
better off letting them have whatever than
facing them. They most likely should be on
medication and are not....

Definitely not up here. They call us "MA***OLES" for a reason ... Mostly how we drive...

Cemetery. Nice, quiet folk, hardly ever complain. You might even come across an old stone that says "gone fishin'."

I'm pretty sure that everywhere you go you'll find a ratio of around 60/40 miserable to decent.  Plus or minus a few points on either side to take into account genuinely good people and grade A A-holes.  But I've read that Vermont was voted the "nicest" state as far as people were concerned.  Although I'm sure my numbers are pretty solid there as well.

Not that I've been to a lot of places, but of the places I've been SC was the friendliest by far. I loved the diversity there too. Everyone was just another person there, nobody seemed to notice color, gender, any differences, they all smiled and spoke to each other the same regardless. It really confused my wife coming from a place where everyone looks out for themselves and that's about it. 

Small towns are usually a good bet. Since we moved out of the city, everyone smiles and waves when you pass them on the road, our neighbors look out for each other and help each other when needed, very different from what I've grown use to and I really like it. Of course, the 3 of us make up .01% of the total population (225 people), so you kind of have to play nice with each other.

Ditto. The best place i have visited/lived is the low country of South Carolina, Charleston area. Wonderful people.....But East Tennessee isn't bad either.
