Calgary is an essentially boring, lifeless city in Alberta, Canada with delusions of grandeur. One of the worst examples of urban sprawl in North America it's ecological footprint is massive. So much so that water is becoming a major issue. It is famous for the Calgary Stampede which is a drunken corporate boozefest designed to convince people that Calgary still has anything at all to do with Cowboys.
An essentially a white collar city obsessed with being " a world class city". It should be noted however, that inland cities are rarely world class. Having grown by more than 200,000 people in the last 20 many who come from other larger more cosmopolitan cities despise the fact that Calgary has no arts scene to speak of. The philharmonic teeters on bankruptcy every few years, and the jazz festival died a nasty death due to financial problems.
Calgary is a city, for the most part of hard workers and hard drinkers. Having one of the highest per capita alcohol consumption rates the standard problems arise. However, since most of Calgary is middle class, alcoholism & drug abuse are relabled conspicuous consumption.
Having lived in Calgary my whole life not being white has been a definite plus. It's great to have fun at the rednecks expense and they are usually shocked to discover a margin of education or a sharp wit.
On the subject of well bred white girls a lot of them do get fed up with the redneck attitudes of a lot of white guys. The basically means that if you're not white as long as your a decent man you can date any woman that you want. That being said a lot of girls in Calgary are gold diggers regardless of color. They will ask you in the first five minutes of meeting you, what you do, how much money you make and what you drive. Caution must be applied as a lot of these women are interested in what they can get out of the relationship, not in the man per se. Be vague in matters of money and things will go a lot better. They will be forced to be a little more creative in their legwork which only benifits you, as a guy.
