deep, deep south
… and proud of it! You’re about as southern as they get – you’re hard core! You like grandma’s home cooked recipes – especially her deep fried chicken and cornbread – and wouldn’t be scared if you saw an alligator in a swamp. You’re known for your bravery.
proud of your southern roots
You’re proud of your southern culture and adore the manners, hospitality and generosity of the people living in the region. You’re more likely than the average person to partake in all the region has to offer. You envision yourself raising a family and growing old in the south, because that’s where you’re comfortable.
Everyone has to come from somewhere. You happen to be from the south, but you don’t let that define you. You’re well-travelled, worldly, and not attached to any particular region. Home is where your work and your life takes you.
a southern belle
You’re spunky, spirited and love having a good time. Others see you as old school, charming and traditional. They think they know what to expect from you, but once in a while, you surprise them by thinking outside the box.
You may have come from a privileged background and as a result, you’re happy and confident. You likely had a picturesque childhood. You’re educated and have travelled outside of the south, which makes you worldlier and more sophisticated than your counterparts
