Escape from Southern California
Are you planning to leave southern California? Or have you left already?

Where are you going...? What's your time frame?

(Why would be a plus although, since I live here, I already have a good idea of why..)

Everyone from Nevada to Arzona to New Mexico to Colorado to Texas can tell you that enough have left already.

 Quoting: B-Flat




Californians (specifically southern Californians) tend to have a hard time getting along in other places. They are more abnoxious than the Irish on St Pattys and the Mexicans on Cinco de Mayo put together.

Most southern California residents do not realize how whiney and lazy they are. They act as if they are a gift to where ever they go. So when locals are assholes to them, the Californians tend to think it's just because everyone is jealous because they are from "SoCal" (Good God that is GAY), but this is not the case. You are just assholes.

They tend to tick a lot of people off. Here in Colorado there is a t-shirt you can get referencing this. I have also heard complaints from people who live in other states where Californians have moved.

Just a bad, snooty, self absorbed culture there, and that does not fly well in the rest of the nation. Well, except maybe in Dallas. LOL

But I'm cool with northern Californians.

In my own experience, it's usually the wealthy S. Californians that are like that, everyone else, except those on public assistance, have to work very hard here just to spin your wheels and get nowhere....

but now the economy here is making it impossible to support yourself no matter how hard you work, or how much you scrimp and save...

Went to SD for 3 months in the USN. They tried to make me stay. Housing cost way too much.

Recently built a house in Missouri. Three of the workers had just moved in from SoCal. And i'm in a small town of only 5000.

Call them roaches.

They are permeating through the border into Baja California.

And you're correct. They think they are a gift to us, snotty motherfunkers. They arrive with no money at all, and think we should give them hand-outs.

Re: Escape from Southern California
I moved to Oregon in 2005, nobody wants us. it's impossible to conceal where you're from they will ask "where did you go to high school", or you will mis-pronounce something, or you will be ignorant of some local fact and the cover is blown.

they say we are the self absorbed ones, but you will constantly hear "i've been an oregon native all my life" --sounds pretty much the same, as well as contains retarded redundant logic, find a way to make it work in so cal. I may be back one day.

also DO NOT move to the NW if you are a single male.

Re: Escape from Southern California
I'm in Long Beach and our neighborhood has been selling well, essentially another mini-bubble fueled by government intervention. We bought our house before the boom and still have plenty of equity in our home. So we're selling this summer and hoping to move to either Dallas metro or Colorado.

Of course the weather and sheer beauty (I know other states are beautiful in their own way) of this state cannot be matched elsewhere, its not enough though to keep us here. We're a family of 5 and my hubby earns a great salary, but we still live paycheck to paycheck. With 3 kids, we're also very concerned about public education. We haven't ruled out moving to South Orange County or North San Diego county where houses are a bit better priced. Yet, with all the crazy taxes and fees, we'd be wise to move out of state ASAP.

I left LA in 2002 after 12 years. Home prices suck and 98.5% of the people suck. The most arrogant, narcissistic, cynical, self-important stupid fucks I have ever met in my life. The people there are not worth a bucket of warm piss. And I've been EVERYWHERE- NYC, Canada, Europe, Asia, you name it, and the people in SoCal are a waste of oxygen. It's really sad. Sorry to be such an ass, but I just have to call it like I see it.

I moved from LA to Dallas. Nothing compares with Cali geography, hardly anywhere in the world. I luv it.

You might like west Plano, very good school system and big bang for your buck housing-wise while Dallas is just minutes down the tollroad. $400k buys you a 3500 squarefoot home with all the fixins.
