Hi there. I’m a southern boy from Savannah, GA. Though I haven’t lived in the South in over a decade, the personal sense of pride I have about being southern is something that has never escaped me.
I’ve been in LA for two years, and after meeting a fellow southerner on Friday, I realized that I’m batting 10/10 with southern strangers out here. Its inexplicable but there seems to be an innate magnetism amongst southerners that lends itself to immediate chemistry.
I think once you experience living outside of the south, it’s hard envisioning yourself back in it, though I think the yearning for southern people never ceases to exist. I just desperately miss my southern people and thought this group could potentially bring us together.
I don’t have a particular vision for this group. Just an assortment of meetups across the spectrum to get southern folks together.
