I moved here after 6 years in Los Angeles, but grew up in a small mid-western town. I can say the people here are very similar to those in Los Angeles, in fact life is very similar... people are preoccupied with their own lives, busy, not-interested in making time for new people. I've been here two years, I came to be with my partner. Most of my attempts to reach out to locals or expats have met with brick walls. I admit I will NOT make random trips to Palermo, where everyone seems to be (not that I know for sure or that I'm 'stalking' anyone as one of our fellow members suggested yesterday, but then removed his post). There are a lot of people who only look at the value of friendship from the point of view of what's in it for them. (Yes, worldwide, but especially here (an in SoCal).) I tend to be more of a giver than a taker in relationships in general.

Your ¨not typical?¨ Your commentary strikes me as absolutley typical of what I found in the US and why I live here. Your whinny, simplistic, and if not arrogant lacking in humility.

I am not saying this to be harsh, I am advising you to study the native women, you will learn alot.

Of course if you are super hot, I can recant all this for salesmanship purposes given the opportunity and tell you how great you are. I have been learning from the Argentines.

Alot of what happens in terms of relationships with casual friends has to do with where you live. When I first moved to Argentina, I lived in Microcentro, not a place to make friends at all, I then moved to Barrio Norte, which was somewhat more friendly but became more and more transient as time went on. Last year when I moved to Villa Urquiza I found really nice people and awesome neighbors who will do anything for you I feel like I am back with my old time neighbors when I was a kid!!

So the other night in bed, Jennie and I were taking a break, I was eating a sandwich and she was smoking of course, but I asked her to blow it towards the window...

Anyway, she turned to me and said "You know, I don't think you're someone I'm going to be longterm friends with." And I thought for a second and replied "Meh, I'm ok with that."

I only asked because I grew up in a town of less than 5,000 people in rural Missouri, so I figured we had different perspectives. This ain't rural Missouri! haha :eek:
