What bothers you most about men in Atlanta?

Mia: They have trouble being honest, which results in them being insecure -- especially with women. If a guy tries to pursue me, nine times out of 10 he's married, or he has a girlfriend, or he has kids -- but you find that out on your own. Or a lot of times, they drive these nice cars, but they're really in debt and live with their mothers. And there's no originality. They all dress alike, listen to the same music, they all eat the same things, they don't like to venture out and see anything like a play, the ballet or the opera. They're boring.

Jamie: It has something to do with the white-collar factor. The wealthy men from the suburbs have moved [intown] -- and they and their wives and their new babies are moving to the Highlands and changing the dynamics. They're opinionated in their beliefs and don't want to hear anything else. They're narrow-minded -- nothing about a spiritual self or an emotional self. For me, that's a turn-off.

Marci: I grew up in upstate New York, where guys are guys. Their mothers treated their fathers like kings, not their sons. So the sons emulated their fathers' behavior, not their mom's. Southern men are treated like babies. There will never be a woman in their life as good as their mom, so they practice that. They're non-committal, usually sexist, and they have the old fraternity complex, too. I know 35-year-old sons still living with their mothers. Since they already got a mother, they're looking for a whore. They're all Peter Pan going to Never Never Land.-- Jeff Slate
