dating sites like espin - East coast vs west coast dating
Let’s just say talking about world issues and politics is not what you typically hear at dinner conversations, more like drugs, threesomes, who is that sitting beside you, and what five parties can you hit in one night.
Long gone are the days when I lived in Washington, DC and a guy I went out with was thrilled I was a teacher because it would help his political career, if he married me. In Connecticut, where I was raised, tattoos were considered “bad” and something only naughty girls got.
The thing is the look on the west coast is to look effortless all the time, like you just threw on what you had on with no care in the world and still look fabulous. Creativity and entrepreneurship are alive and well in all parts of California. Now I can tell you how to grow a garden and what fruits and vegetables are good for each part of your body and why.
No more Brooks Brother wrinkle free button down shirts and pearls for me! People don’t want to work for someone and slave in an office all day. Everywhere you go in LA there is a cleanse you can try or a miracle juice straight from the earth or vegans proclaiming meat, eggs, and milk should not be consumed. The East Coast is more down-to-Earth when it comes to bars.
Since it is all around us, it makes us laugh when East Coasters post pictures of some reality star from ten years ago and scream for joy like it was the best event of their life. I have found people on the West Coast (who most come from somewhere else) are not raised with the same educational whip. I use to get giddy over boys in whale pants, Nantucket reds, green cords with sailor belts, Docksiders with no socks, tassel loafers, bow ties, Vineyard Vines ties, monogrammed shirts, croakies, khakis and navy blazers, hair swept and combed perfectly to the side, but NOW it makes me want to puke.
