I have never been to Texas but I live in So Cal. Numerous people I know, have been to Texas though and they say how way more people there are less socially retarded than people in So Cal. They say you can have WAY more friendly convos with strangers BEYOND SMALL TALK, than here in So Cal. Here in So Cal MOST people don't get so deep in convo with strangers beyond saying," Hi" or "how is your day?" And if you do go deep in convo with a stranger in So Cal, most of them look at you like you are on crack or get uncomfortable. That is what many people notice how people are here in so cal.
