Hehe, I know what you mean, my GF is from Texas, she fun, silly playful, ect. ^^
I don't think it matters entirely about where they are from, but what they are raised around/brought up to be.
I don't know all that much about the females around my part of town, but from school experience, I'd say kinda com petetive, some shy, like regular girls I guess, it's not like I see prostitution or anything, heaven forbid
About us "shy men" being out there, yeah, it's true, cause I'm on of em! =P
