    1. You live less than 2 miles from work and it takes you an hour to get there.
    2. The girls in the bars look at guys more than the guys look at the girls (love this actually).
    3. Foreplay starts with “What kind of car do you drive?”
    4. Most of the time you say “Wow, she looks like a pornstar” she is a pornstar.
    ****All based on my time living in LA, not necessarily true for other areas of CA.
