Some people may take this the wrong way, but I have noticed the difference between Minnesotans and Oregonians. I have heard people talk about Minnesota nice but actually view it as Minnesota ice. The truth is Minnesotans do not care they just want you to leave them alone. When you befriend someone, they tell you what you want to hear and then you never hear from them again. The difference between Minnesota and Oregon can be seen more clearly if you live in Oregon and move to Minnesota.
Some of the characteristics I have noticed are, In Oregon people are brutally honest, if they don’t like you they will tell you they don’t like you, also if you are in Oregon you will realize everyone talks to everyone, people are very open unlike Minnesotans who are very close minded. I have tried to date a number of women in Minnesota with horrible results. They expect you to read their mind. Some other things I have noticed are Minnesotans will lie to your face or tell you what you want to hear. I have come up with a new name for Minnesotans, Minnesota ice. I am the type of person who likes to communicate so I guess that is why I have such a problem with Minnesotans. I have experienced the difference enough to realize I want to leave; the problem is I am stuck here because my family lives here. I guess I just wish people specifically in Minnesota would truly be more honest about what they really think. The truth is I should not care about your opinion but I would like to meet people and make friends but have not had much luck in Minnesota.
