Apparently considered by the rest of Virginia as "uncultured", obtuse, and border-line elitist. As for the elitism, this author can assure you as an elitist themselves it is not, and far from it. As for the cultural aspect of the equation it seems quite odd since there is a high content of ethnicities and nationalities residing in Northern Virginia. However, as the majority of the adults living in the suburbs of NoVa commute to Washington D.C., a government and urban area it is not as "Southern" as the rest of VA. Although, as the aforementioned population is very diverse, it does consist of a melting pot of culture, and therefore are more tolerant of a global community acting as one. Moving on, since Northern Virginia has lots of "noveau riche" folk (as said by someone living in a Southern part of Virginia) and highly paid government employees, it seems as if although cordial and when talking to strangers worry-free of politics, religion, business, et cetera; they are in fact quite knowledgeable of at least one of the topics. As for wanting to be part of the "North", this simply is not true as the Civil War is over.

A part of Virginia that is one of the richest (Great falls, Ashburn, Centreville, Chantilly,Arlington, Sterling ect) but yet over populated with illegal immigrants and Spanish and Asian gangs. Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Manassas, PWC, and even Loudon County have some of the worst illegal immigration problems in the nation. Allot of Northern VA is turning into a little Haiti or something except more like a little Honduras. There are Peruvian and el-Salvadorian places galore in NOVA. An entire part of Falls Church is all Vietnamese. A section of Alexandria City called Arlanda is known as little El-Salvador (Its on wikipedia!). Annandale has a section that is all in Korean. I can’t read that shit. It starts to make me wonder is this even America? I don’t know how this is one of the richest places when New York or New Jersey cost almost twice the cost of living it does here. And that’s a fact! Overall if you decide to come check this place out The city of Alexandria is probably the only one I would check out. And for the Centreville and Chantilly people that keep putting up this and that about there the gang capital of NOVA bullshit. Let me make this perfectly clear NOVA is soft except for Alexandria and the outskirts of Falls Church like Culmore. So shut the fuck up. And for southern Virginians that hate us for well, why? Fuck off get a life. I would much rather live here that in the seven cities or Richmond simply because there is a hell of a lot more to do here than down there. That southern hospitality talk is bullshit most people in Richmond are assholes. VA Beach is a hick town with ignorant ass people and the same crime rates as NOVA so stop acting all thug and shit. Here’s my point Alexandria 6.0 per 100,000. Virginia Beach 5.6 per 100,000. Suffolk co is one of the safest counties next to Fairfax look it up on wikipedia SO SHUT THE FUCK UP!
I live in Northern Virginia.

I used to like Northern Virginia.

The northern portion of the state of Virginia, bordering DC and Maryland. As evidenced in this site, we are disliked greatly by the rest of Virginia because this area is not full of rednecks and hicks like southern virginia, or hillbillies like West Virginia. We have some of the most affluent counties in the US, with Loudon and Fairfax always competing for the number one spot. Full of ethnic diversity and educated people from all over the world who shape the area we live in. No, we are NOT proud southerners, because there isn't anything remotely southern about us. I have encountered very few southern accents here, and most were from people who lived down south. I am proud to live in such an area.
You say you want Northern Virginia to become its own state, but our taxes are all spent on YOU, southern virginia. What on earth would happen to you without us, besides becoming a state akin to Kentucky or Mississippi? Face it, you NEED us. So please, please stop bitching.

Majority of these definitions of 'Northern Virginia' were artfully created by uneducated and bitter Southern Virginians. Northern Virginia (Often referred to as 'Nova') is a suburban location that is diverse in many aspects.

Fairfax County is one of the richest counties in the entire country according to the annual income made by families. Majority of those who acquire such a salary made it through college. This is a major turn-off to southerners. God forbid they speak proper English, and learn something other then how to properly lynch a "foreigner." Oh. and southern hospitality my ass, majority of them are rude, and racist. (Not to be stereotypical, but it's true).

The children of NOVA, according to these southerners, are "rich little brats." I'm sorry we have people (parents, guardians) who provide for us, and you're stuck shoveling cow shit for the rest of your life. Northern Virginians live comfortable lives; food in the stomach, house above your head, and a sexy ass car parked in the mansions garage.

Everyone has one life to live, we're just making ours worthwhile (unless you're into reincarnation; that's a completely different story).The material world can be a big part of our lives, but we still have morals, and we still have respect for others. Northern Virginians are accepting and welcoming people.

This is the land of opportunities, and while southerners are giving cows hand jobs, we're living the good life.
Southern Virginian in NOVA: TOO MANY COLORS! Time to get my rifle from back when my gramps was in the confederacy ya'll!

Northern Virginian: You're from Southern Virginia aren't you? It's okay, we understand you don't understand anything, but we'll accept you into our kind community.

Okay, so I live in NOVA and I just got really pissed when I read this Southern Virginian bastard's definition:

"So Northern Virginia, please do the rest of the state a favor, and become part of Maryland. Northern Virginia you're money will not be missed because you have no class."

Our money will not be missed? Excuse me, but Northern Virginia pays a huge percent of the state taxes compared to its size. So our money goes to you Southern wankers so you can actually go to a decent school. And maybe we will leave, then at least our hard-earned money won't go to ungrateful assholes like you.

Most Southern Virginians have never been to Northern Virginia, they're just making up things to make us look bad because they know we're better than them.

Most of us aren't spoiled brats, our parents *just* make a lot of money. We are most definitely not snobby.

-I've lived in Reston (NOVA) for a very long time, and I can just say I met some of the truest, funniest, smartest, beautiful (on the inside, and out), and most down-to-earth people in my entire life. I've met so many FUCKEN AMAZING people and I love them all to death.

Stop stereotyping us because you have no fucking idea of anything in Northern Virginia.

So go get a life fuck yourselves, Southern Virginians, you know no one else will.

(Hey, if you're a Southern Virginian and you don't hate us Novans, I didn't mean you. I'm only being a bitch because someone else was.)
Southern Virginian: Northern VA has no class, no money, no decent people.

Northern Virginian: Oh look whos talking.

The crown of Virginia, NOVA is the only decent place in the state. It's money is stolen and given to the rejects--I mean the rest of Virginia. Although we attend the colleges scattered around the state, we quickly return when we finish because there is no other place with great job opportunities and high salaries. We do not stop, stare, and gaze when we see people that are not white. We are not southerners, nor would you find a confederate flag anywhere in the area, we actually take offense to being called southern. Luxury is a common site and most of the time a standard. We forced Virginia to vote blue in the elections :D We are the voice of Virginia. The only other great populations are either because its the capital of the state or because we needed a place to buy beach property in our state. Other than that everyone lives in NOVA. Its the best place with the greatest things to do. I would go down there and tell it to all you Southern Virginians but:

1.) I would get no cell phone signal

2.) GPS probably hasn't been invented there yet

3.) I don't have 4 wheel drive to take dirt roads

4.) I'm not white so I would get shot
Californian: Hey you're the new guy from Virginia?
