Small town / rustic / rural / country people What do you usually call people who come from rural areas and small city? Is it correct to use any of these. - He’s a country person. - He’s a rustic person. - He’s a rural person. - He’s a small town person. If some of them are not natural and you prefer one over the others, please tell me. Thank you

Like David says, they're all unnatural as they are. if you speak in the first person, a couple of these are possible: "I'm a country person", "I'm a small-town person". Generally you say as David suggests. Most common where I am is: "He's from the country", "He's from a small town/city". One we sometimes say here is "He's from the bush" (from a rural area), but this is very Aussie, I think.

Those are all unnatural. He's from the country. He lives in the country. He likes living in the country. He's (from, lives in, likes living in) a small town. Some people do use labels like country boy/country girl/small town girl/city boy/city girl but it's pretty casual and moreover could be taken the wrong way. I wouldn't recommend it. Also, someone can just say something like "I'm country" but it's an adjective.
