1. Refer to Fort Worth as our twin city or Dallas-Fort Worth as the Metroplex.
Fort Worth(less) is like your country cousin that shows up at family weddings in overalls and chugs four beers before the first dance is even over. Beyond the fact that Dallasites like to distance ourselves as much as possible from our cow-loving neighbors, we think ‘the Metroplex’ sounds just plain tacky and ridiculous — as though Superman might swoop in at any moment. If you must lump us together into a single conglomerate (I’m looking at you, Mr. Weatherman) DFW will suffice.
