Is it true that American ladies like us English guys?Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
You see/hear this mentioned a lot on television/films etc. American girls love an English guy. So why is that? is it because of our good manners, good looks, our accents?
Or is it all rubbish and i've allowed my hopes to be raised and dashed against the rocks of loves rocky shore?

American girls love an English guy.

They think you're all either Prince William or Vinnie Jones, either way they're happy.

You should hop the pond. I'm sure your Surrey accent would go down a storm over there. I suggest adopting British idoms for maximum effectiveness. Favourites include plonker, bloody hell, twat and geezer!

It's pretty much the accent. Just trust me on that.

I watched a player do his thing, where he was Irish for a week. Worked amazingly well. Even if the accent was horribly fake and he sounded like the Lucky Charms leprechaun. And he was Mexican on top of that. My faith in humanity dropped for multiple reasons.

It is, it's the accent.
A lot of people (male or female) will go wild for certain accents. English accents just happen to be very popular among North Americans.
I know a few guys personally that once they hear a woman with a French accent they just about explode.

you haven't seen the dark side of the English folk. I'll put it as nicely as I can. Like the ones who live like students while they're in a big career. Now, property and rent can be quite expensive over there in places, so I can understand the influence of that. I lived there for 7 years. But even on MY low income, I managed to keep my house clean and my car in one piece, and even get the occasional takeaway and holiday.

There are enough benefits available and no tax filing required except for self employed, that there aren't that many pressures. My biggest nemesis was the council tax, usually in the region of 1000-1500 pounds.

Don't be swayed by what you hear, I was and I regretted it. Yeah there are the ones who wont call you back, wont answer the door when it comes time to come over, etc. More than here, their house/flat is their castle. But on the average, they're more polite.

I have lots of little brit speak sayings. Some I completely forgot had anything to do with my stay there. LIke saying "I think we have a sticky situation" ... uh sounds pretty normal to me but when my boss heard it on "are you being served?" he laughed and told me about it.

The accent definately gives you a jump start over the rest. But after that its down to you to keep a woman's interest. What it really comes down to is that things like good looks, accents etc can get your foot in the door faster, but its really what's inside that counts for the long run.

Well I once hit on a woman and she quickly made clear that she had an English boyfriend. The situation was rather amusing because I read it as her statement of what great luck it was to have an Englishmen. Or, maybe more the point, Englishmen are the best defense for American women.

I'm gonna be real honest.
In the looks department...I don't like the english features/traits that many men from there have. And I don't know the different areas for accents, but there are very few english accents i have heard that i find attractive. I have a good friend who lives in london, online buddies for years, I'll admit he does have a lot of manners...but sometimes he's almost too polite.

I prefer Irish or European men.

I prefer the Scottish accent to the few English accents I've heard, but still found the English accents attractive.

Of the three things you listed, I would say its the accent. I personally don't find English men any more attractive than American men, and we have more variety here. The manners of the few English men I've met were fine, but nothing extraordinary. I found them far too careful and fastidious for my liking, but not to say this is unattractive. Merely not what I see as a plus.

I had to laugh at this (in a nice way, not a mocking way)

I'm a Brit who spends quite a bit of time in Northern California and I get the same comments back in Blighty as I do here.

The Brits want to know if I have an American g/f because Americans girls are all hot with great accents.
The Americans want to know if I have an English g/f because they all have hot accents and are pretty little English Roses.

Let's just say, people are people, the world over and anything that seems "exotic" is always assumed to be cooler/hotter/cuter/better than anything "homegrown". The Brits are, on average, no prettier than anyone else. Us Scots are of course gods next to the English though

Just kidding... ish

I have a friend who goes to the states to stay with friends each year, every time he goes he picks up several women. They all go crazy for his accent, he can tell them anything he likes and they have no way of checking him out and he knows it. Talk about giving the English a bad name!

It has to be said that American and French accents are the best though!!
