Recently, I was talking to a guy that I've always been interested in but we are both very shy. I mentioned that I like country music and would love to move down south or would be perfectly content living on a farm. (It came up in conversation) He was shocked. He said he assumed I would love the city.
When making plans to go to an amusement park with new friends I mentioned I was excited. They all asked why and said there's nothing for me to do there. I LOVE roller coasters and rides, but they said they had all assumed that I'd hate them. They said I just don't look like I like them.
I'm not going to start dressing bad just because of other people, but I'm really not high maintenance AT ALL! Do they think I am because of my looks? How do I make people see me as not high maintenance.

Farms aren't as easy as you make them out to be. I highly doubt, once you got down there, you'd want to live on a farm. To start you'd give up that fancily dressed, make up and accessorized life style, which it really doesn't seem like you'd want to do. I know it's a stupid thing to point out but growing up on a farm then going to college in the Northeast has shown me just how different things are. And a lot of people say they'd like to live in the south, on a farm, a simple life style. It's anything but simple, I promise you. Just a pet peeve when people think that because they listen to country, drive a truck and know what a horse is they can handle living on a proper farm.
A lot of the time if you dress up and look very professional and proper men assume you're high maintenance because you look like the upscale New York women. They assume your life style is expensive and that you expect your boyfriend to keep up with it, but more than that, to help fund it. You also might have a "high and mighty" air about you. If you look, walk and talk like you're proper and stand up and professional and that kind of stuff then you'll probably give off the vibe that you're "better than them". Or "out of their league" in a money, status, maintenance kind of way.
