Are you tired of dating people from bland, uninteresting states and looking for someone who can bring some excitement and personality to your life?

Look no further than right here in Illinois!

I've lived in Illinois my entire life and I've always told myself I would never settle for someone who also lives here. I have now lowered my standards significantly because it's a pretty unrealistic goal and narrows my chance at happily ever after.

Just to clarify: I didn't lower my standards in men, but just where they reside.  You still need a sense of humor, be loyal, and have no children.  That's all I ask...

Here Are 6 Reasons To Marry Someone From Illinois

#1: They'll be a homebody during the winter

When the cold weather hits in the Midwest, nobody really likes going out.  I hope you like your partner enough because you'll be spending a lot of time with them indoors!

#5: Never feel like a tourist again

When you marry an Illinoisan, you will finally be able to pronounce Illinois correctly and will never ask someone if they're from Chicago ever again.  If you really want to know, we all live in the suburbs. Huge let down, I know.

#6: Illinois sports fans go HARD

You might have to pick a side, but we have the Chicago Cubs, White Sox, Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, and the Blackhawks!  If your partner doesn't take you to at least one game during your marriage, file divorce papers.

Marrying someone from Illinois has its benefits.  If you're not planning on leaving Illinois anytime soon, maybe consider a nice Illinoisan to tie the knot with.  At least you'll both be adapted to the Midwest already!
