Are you from the north and have spent a lot of time down south and what are your opinions from your personal experiences. Also vice versa.

Both 'groups' are polite. :D

Ending a sentence with 'mate' in the North can be quite aggressive.
Ending a sentence with 'mate' in the South seems mandatory.

OK pal?

Northern traffic: Flows freely, everybody gets there on time & in one piece.
Southern traffic: Two speeds: Complete standstill for hours or breakneck speed to get to a gap far smaller than the vehicle being hurled towards it.

Northern trains: Relaxing. On time. Full of people that chat to you.
Southern trains: Standing room only (under armpits of everybody else). Often delayed. Sometimes cancelled because an earlier train was delayed. Full of people not making eye contact.

Northern water: Drinkable.
Southern water: Undrinkable.

Northern women: Free & (cough) easy.
Southern women: Expensive. So I believe.

Northerners: No accents.
Southerners: Seemingly hundreds just in one city!

Northerners: Few ways to ask for Coffee... Hot, Black, White, Sugar, More Sugar, No Sugar. Bought. Out the shop. Drunk. Enjoyed.
Southerners: Iced Skinny Mocha Hazelnut Macchiato Café Vanilla Americano with Sugar-Free fancy-schmancy Syrup... & that's just the first option on the menu! You for Coffee?

Ok, the neighbours are still keeping me awake so I'll answer your question.
Southerners can be just as friendly as northerners but the way it's expressed as well as the accent makes a big difference.
I'm a southerner who's lived in the north for many years. When I first moved here I was surprised by what seemed like people being over familiar, now when I go down south people seem overly reserved.
You wouldn't think there would be such a big difference in just a few hundred miles, but there is.

Now, don't get me started on the language differences... (mithering?!) ;)

Leylands ok, it's near Preston, Lancashire. . now if you were comparing Burnley, Blackburn, Bradford, Bolton to London then I would rather move down south and take my future family down there for the next 100 years

By the north i would say the northwest and yorkshire upwards. People living in the midlands to me are not northeners.

Yea. Unless you're foreign.

A northerner

Edit: ^^^ That is a criticism of northerners and not my personal view.

Am from up north east, moved down south when I was 9, moved around down there a fair bit, near Milton Keynes, few towns in Hertfordshire, Kent etc. I moved back up north east just over 2 years ago people are more friendly here. Best decision I've made to move back here, I doubt I would move back down.

Im not to sure about the accents in the north, even taking away all the african,romanian and other european accents in the northwest you have very different english accents. A scouser stands out like a sore thumb in manchester when they talk and when ive been to liverpool and people have heard me talk they have turned around and give me a dirty look when they have heard my manc accent.
