I grew up in the South, though. Lived in the West and just recently moved to this area which is actually considered Midwest. Seems more northern to me though, especially in the winter. I figured when I went on another website I was not even logged into and it showed a little rotating world with pin dots of everyone even online at their site and then listed my city in a column on the right, it didn’t really matter anymore. Using the internet, if someone really wants to find you, they can. It’s like having a cell phone.
