Been wondering about this for like a couple weeks. How important is the "area" of you apt. or whatever when it comes to chicks? I'll be honest: I live in what I call the "hood". My apt. complex was built in the 50's, and is not up to par with the current trends in apt. living. In fact, I'm a minority in the area as I'm white/asian'ish and my neighbors are mostly african-american and straight up african. I keep my place really clean (almost obsessive), have pretty nice stuff - with the exception of my couch which just needs a nice couch-cover and some pillows and it's good to go. The landlord did a rather shitty job painting it and stuff, so the walls aren't perfect, and the carpet could use a steam cleaning or straight up replacement, but I have to call it home for right now. Do you see what I'm getting at here? I think the problem is: I don't wanna lose out because my place wasn't nice enough or whatever. But on the other hand, if a girl wouldn't wanna hang due to where I live, I probably wouldn't want anything to do with them.
