Incompatibility of me and X// Incompatibility of myself and X

0

Which sounds best and is best grammatically:

 

1). "The utter incompatibility of me and and Washington DC culture made me run for the hills."

 

2). "The utter incomopatibility of myself and Washington DC culture made me run for the hills."

 

3). "The utter incomapatibility between myself and Washington DC culture made me run for the hills."

 

Are there any alternatives that I'm not considering?

The first one is the only one that is close to correct, but it should be 'Washington, D.C.,' and remove the extra 'and'. I would also change 'of' to 'between'.

In order to use a reflexive pronoun, 'myself' in this case, you must have the antecedent of the pronoun present.

 

The utter incompatibility between me and Washington, D.C., culture made me run for the hills."

Another alternative:

 

My utter incompatibility with Washington, D.C. culture made me run for the hills.
