Went on a date in the city with a girl from Tennessee. At 42 years old she lived almost all her life in TN, did an internship in Europe, finished her master's in Memphis, moved to NYC in 2017. She is a psychologist.
There was this one time when I lived in Minneapolis near uptown (the liberal section of town) and there was a girl there that was conservative. We chatted a bit and to my surprise she didn't believe in all the liberal nonsense. Now I can post about it on Anandtech 20 years later, because... I'm cool like that, just like your post. High five. Cool story bro!
