Havin' grown up in the DC/Metro area (DC/MD/Northern VA) this area has little to offer me. I spent the last five years in and around Raleigh, NC, and I enjoy everythin' about that area more. I'm sure part of it was that it was just different than where I grew up. But other than the music venues of this area I could care less.
There's nothing wrong with a showmance here and there, but this does not seem like the environment lends itself to that this time. Then again, after I've had some vodka infused watermelon, someone may need to quote me on this.
Well no idea when you were last here or where. City has changed a lot in the last 10 years - some cool venues (just had Flaming Lips here at The National), cool new places at the water, and Carytown is booming. I live near a gorgeous reservoir. Does it have its issues? Sure - but having lived in several states I can say pretty assuredly VA has some pretty unique looks considering its size, from ocean to mountains.
That said, I'd NEVER live in northern VA. It's the one place I'd avoid for minimalls and traffic.

I'm not trying to hook up with anyone or anything, but last year was my first 'roo and I met so many awesome people, feel free to hit me up if you want someone to go to shows with or to chill with a bigger group of great people. I'm from Minnesota by way of Kentucky. Also, pic related: I'm the one in the middle.

My best friend is Canadian and picks up my accent so easy (she lives right across the border too, how do I not pick up hers?!). The accents up in the U.P. (upper peninsula) are amazing, hahahha. I have a lot of family up there and they sound so much different than us trolls.
