Northern Swag v. Southern Charm

LADIES!!! I'm from the DMV that's the D.C, Maryland, Virginia area for those that don't know! Born and raised in the sexy nation's capitol!!!! To some i'm from the north, to others i'm what they call a southern belle and to others I fall right in between living here. However, my question is to the ladies....
When it comes to men, I always find myself drawn to the confidence, swag (yea i hate the word too), walk, accent, style, and flava of a guy from up top...most notably The Empire and Garden States (that's New York and New Jersey)...I like them, the slang, the cockiness, and perceived rudeness, the way they rock a fitted, and call you ma!!!!!!!!!
BUT....
I'm aware that some ladies prefer a man south of the mason dixon...we call them, well, the worthy ones, Southern Gentleman. They're handy, can fix you a good meal, likely open all your doors, court you the old fashioned way (flowers, romance, walks). To me, they tend to be softer, gentler, and sweeter....even the "hard" ones....they're a good look too.
However, I have a preference so I was wondering if my readers/followers did too????? What's your preference Lovin' from up top OR a good ol' southern gentleman?!?!?!?!? NORTH OR SOUTH???

Since we are in the in between area I find myself torn between the two...some days i love the whole packet that north offers me but my heart melts for a southern man! and as i write this i would have to say the southern men are my cup of tea. The sweet, polite, respectful but strong south man makes me wanna fan myself!

I agree with sunshinestar110 I love a southern men. Although I'm surrounded by northern men, due to residing in Philadelphia, I find that I love the northern mans swag/demeanor. I went to school in the South, and to me they have the whole package as well. They can have a street side/ruggedness to them, but will also have the respectful/courteous side as well. To me that's important, plus I love the "southern twang" in their voice.

Girl, I'm from NYC...Born in Brooklyn..raised in BK and the BX...and I absolutely do NOT want a man from up North...The amount of "aayee chocolate" I get from crusty looking men...ughhh...NYers specifically are way too rude for me. Yea they have the "swagg" but that gets old for me really quick.
I definitely want me a Southern gentleman...opens doors and ish like that...oooooweeee..lemme find one of those and he is gonna put a ring on it! LoL

WOW!!! That's 3-1 going to the south!! I'm not mad at that nor do I really have an argument to refute it. My ex was from VA and yes...there was an abundance of romance, doors always opened, chairs pulled out, catered to me when I was sick, my smile made him smile but we simply didnt workout. LOL!!! I love this topic!!!
