1. They keep the house above 75 degrees.

If anyone needs to warm up, especially during the summer, just step outside. If the house is above 75 degrees, be skeptical that their home isn't actually a terrarium and you're dating someone you don't really know.

2. They won't pick a side: Sooners or Cowboys.

It doesn't take long for anyone in Oklahoma to run into anything Sooners or Cowboys related. A piece of advice for anyone not from the state: side with whichever color you see more of wherever you're at.

3. There are too many cattle, in their opinion.

Oklahoma is one of the several "cattle country" areas in the United States and depends on cattle for meat production and economic fluidity. If they hate cattle, or emissions, Oklahoma is definitely the wrong area for them.

4. They don't open the door or are offended when the door is opened for them.

Although Oklahoma falls in the center of the country, much of the state lives by southern customs. They're not just commonality - it's just straight-up rude to leave a woman to open her own door. Ladies, a man's move to open the door is never an insult - it's the bare minimum.

5. They've never had grits.

Notice we didn't say "like" grits: if you weren't raised on the delicacy, it can be an acquired taste. However, if they've never tried grits - at the very least heard of them - or willing to try them, be weary that they may not be willing to try too many things in the long run.

6. They have an incredibly jacked up truck but claim they're always hauling.

Unless they have another vehicle or a lowered ball hitch, they're not hauling anything in that truck - an obvious lie to anyone who actually works livestock. If they're lying about what they do, there's no telling what other fibs they're feeding you.

7. They panic during a thunderstorm.

Yes, tornadoes can happen, and happen often in certain parts of the state, like Moore and Edmond area. However, if they're headed to the storm cellar every time lightning strikes, how are things going to go in a real emergency?
