    Forever a Jersey Girl

    No matter how expensive things get in Jersey, I can just never move away. I love having everything close to my house. 3 malls, plenty of grocery stores, 3 WaWas, gas stations, the beach, Philly and New York city. We've got it all. Plus, I will NEVER pump my own gas!!!

    I want to meet new NJ friends.

    The kind that will meet up with me for coffee. The kind that will make me laugh, and laugh at my attempts at humor. The kind that think about tying me to their bed for a whole weekend and like being called Daddy.

    Annoyed

    I'm Jersey born & raised the thing that upsets me is because of shows like Jersey Shore we are sterotyped. People from other states sadly think that we are all fist pumping party animals. Before Jersey Shore came on fist pumping wasn't ever heard of.

    I have lived in all parts of NJ.

    Jersey Girl

    As much as I love NYC, I will always be proud to be from Jersey. I grew up in Bergen county my whole life and loved it. I live in a town that has almost every highway accessible and not to far from the GWB. I'm really glad to call Jersey my home.

    I was born and raised in New Jersey.

    I lived there for 19 years. Now I live in Las Vegas. I don't miss living in New Jersey, but I miss my family and friends who still live there. The last time that I went back there was about 4 years ago for one of my good friends' wedding.

    Morris County, Born And Raised

    New Jersey gets much more hate than it deserves. Between the opinions of New Yorkers, Jersey Shore, and Chris "Fatass McBully" Christie, the way we are represented in the media not at all reflects the state accurately. Many times in situations when I deal with out-of-staters, I...
