Dude... You should start a new interracial dating trendI live in Maryland which is a southern state since it's below the Mason and Dixon Line.
1. Positives in my area are that there is a great deal of bbw's and ssbbw's and that there is some racial diversity.
2. The negatives that I find in my area are-There is not much interracial dating, There is no plus-size scene as far as events. The area isn't fat friendly.
I loved this area! When i was in the states i spent about 6 weeks around here with family friends. We stayed in Tarpon springs. Wish i could have stayed there forever.Florida here, Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater.
Negatives: Traffic, the risk of hurricanes, and a high unemployment rate
Positives: Glorious sunsets, beaches, usually comfortable weather in the winter, and more diversity than I expected when I moved here (which, admittedly, was not much)
