I'm a recent transplant from the east coast. Had to move for my husbands job. I've been told recently that southerners don't readily accept those who aren't "from here". Is this true?

Hickman County is a tough nut to crack though. Even if you are from within the state it takes an awful long time to break through the "outsider" thing here.

Thanks for the help! I welcome the slower pace of life here!! Much easier than the east coast!

We love you then talk sh it behind your back. Never put to much trust in us... We'll turn on you especially if other people don't like you. We put on fake smiles and pretend everything's okay when it really isn't.

Depends on where you are. I'm a Southerner by birth, and have been transferred to the West Coast, Midwest, a new to me region in the South twice. The first Southern town was a surprise because people were very unfriendly to outsiders. I didn't expect that. For my most recent transfer back to the South from another region of the country, I chose a town with lots of transplants. A much better experience, although in my experience in my new town, the natives are very open and welcoming, too.

I hope you're in an area with lots of transplants.

Find something you like to do, a hobby or sport, and jump in. Get involved in a church. Volunteer.
