Yorkshire people could come across as not the friendliest to strangers as my mother (a staunch Lancastrian) found out in the early 60's when we moved to Yorkshire. She wanted to move back but dad wouldn't hear of it and she settled in but it took a while and she wouldn't then move back to Lancashire. May be different nowadays when there is much more population movement and multiculturism.I have deep faith in the elastic.
I think I've written on here before about my lack of intuition about strangers (which maybe feeds into 'instant attraction' but is that thing in reverse). I've felt instant antipathy towards people. Just seeing someone on the other side of a room and thinking 'oh, no, I don't like the look of them.' And practically EVERYONE that I have had this thought about has turned into a close and dear friend.
Example, when I moved to Yorkshire, nearly 30 years ago, I joined a Mother and Toddler group. There were two women there who I thought were stuck up, overly involved with their children (helicopter parenting) and another whom I instantly disliked.
Thirty years later, one of them is my very best friend, and the other two were close friends until our children grew up and we all moved away from one another, although I recently went out for dinner with one of them.
I can only assume that the antipathy I felt came from them not being comfortable in the room (they, interestingly, were all also incomers, although one from only a few miles away), and not looking relaxed.
