Carolina Girl

Alright, so, back to my identity crisis….I have always identified myself as a Colorado Girl, but I have been surrounded by Carolina Girls for over 11 years now. So, what is a Carolina Girl?

A Carolina Girl has a strong personality, a sweet southern accent and is always a daddy's girl. She loves to drink sweet tea and watch basketball and/or nascar. She says "ya'll" and "bless your heart."

A Carolina Girl has very strong feelings about Duke, UNC, and NC State, nothing fires you up quite like college basketball in North Carolina. She has a favorite NASCAR driver, even if she doesn't watch NASCAR. And not only will she watch football with you, she will go to the tailgate and might even enjoy it more than you.

A Carolina Girl is both a tomboy and a girly girl. They love hunting and wearing camo, and also love putting on a lot of makeup, wearing frilly dresses, and trying to look as pretty as possible. They would never leave the house without full makeup and hair because know that looking put together means the whole world takes you more seriously.

Even though they work out and take care of their bodies, they aren’t afraid of eating, especially barbeque. Come home after a bad day, another woman might listen to you, maybe offer advice, or tell you it's going to be okay. A Carolina girl will do all of that, and make fried chicken, scratch biscuits, and a sweet potato pie. No matter what ails you, a Carolina girl's cooking is the cure. And if she can't cook, her momma can....

A Carolina girl has manners, it's just how she was raised. She'll call your parents "ma'am" and "sir", she'll never talk with her mouth full, and even her sneezes are polite. She will always be a lady in public and never has a bad thing to say about anyone.Instead, she says “Bless her heart” or “Don’t be ugly.”

Family is the most important part of her life, and having frequent phone calls/meals/quality time with the people she loves is essential.  And, a Carolina Girl is not afraid of gender roles. She isn't afraid to admit that men and women are different, excel at different things, and serve different roles biologically and socially. It doesn’t mean they’re not equal, it just means that they both have their value.
