Connecticut has some of the best public schools in the country and several top-rated universities, such a Yale University, Connecticut College, and University of Connecticut.
So, if you’re dating a Nutmegger, you’re bound to have a profoundly intellectual relationship.
When you come to your girlfriend’s house in Connecticut for the first time, the first question her dad will ever ask you is, “Yankees or Red Sox? The chance of the success of your relationship directly correlates to whether or not you share a team.
Connecticuters are all about dressing up—they love their preppy-casual flair and are always stealing (and perfecting if you ask us) New York fashion trends, so get ready for some seriously well-dressed dinner dates.
But before you go seeing this as a bad thing, this just means they already know how awesome you are—they’re already putting down a place setting for you at their Thanksgiving table and have already put you on a team for family board games.
Connecticuters are born and raised with some interesting politics, which have gotten them the noteworthy nickname, “liberalservatives” (socially liberal, fiscally conservative…) And much like the whole “Yankees/Red Sox” debacle, the glue that often holds a Connecticut relationship together is like-minded, liberalservative politics. And the state is so small that Connecticuters are all about community, family, and love.
Like Movoto on Facebook: Around any number of holidays (particularly Christmas and Valentines Day) the Metro North Train that takes Connecticut commuters back and forth to NYC turns into the “train of love.” Cute Connecticut couples who want to get the perfect picture kissing with the tree at Rockefeller Center in the background and fall all over each other while ice skating—all aboard!
Let’s be honest, Connecticut parents are helicopter parents: they know all of their kids business, all of the time.
Here’s every day in Autumn with your significant other: Cuddling under a flannel blanket after a long day of apple picking, hot apple cider drinking, and leaf peeping.Connecticuters call it “The Connecticuddle.” Seriously, you’re in for the coziest, cuddliest autumn of your life when you date a someone from The Nutmeg State.
