Dating british men
It’s hard to resist a British man; they seem so utterly charming no matter what, even if they’re cursing.
(They actually sound bloody fantastic when they curse.) It’s no secret that I adore British men (for example, Sir Paul Mc Cartney is my ideal boyfriend), and I’m clearly not alone. But what may surprise you is that are certain things British men adore about us, as well.
I’ve always believed that bonding over humor is one of the best ways for a couple to connect, so don’t be afraid to crack a few jokes (and we know you won’t be). To be frank (and we’ve learned that we should be), British men do in fact like that, contrary to popular belief, America isn’t as hung up on sex as you would think. Embrace every moment and go with the flow, as they say. Did you know there’s a stereotype British men have about American women — that we’re brash? Sure, some of them think we’re “too loud”, but some praise us for being “slightly aggressive.” Just keep in mind that being brash is okay — being full on rude is not. This one surprised me, but one British man I spoke to commented specifically about the smile of American women.
I’m not saying that American girls are “easy” or anything so crass or disrespectful; I’m saying that we have a certain openness about sex, be it sexual innuendo and/or jokes, which suggests that we don’t take the whole thing too seriously. “There is also the fun side, not fearing appearing stupid in the pursuit of having fun,” one British man revealed. “I think, on average, [American women] actually have a wider smile…and are ALWAYS using it — though they might just be reacting to an English accent, who knows.” I never really thought about it, but I suppose we are a smiley bunch. Having confidence on a date or while flirting can be hard, but many British men singled out our confidence as being an especially desirable quality. Her favorite pastime is eating and drinking and sleeping and then eating again.
One particular Brit has a fondness for Texan girls. American women in particular, are a lot more open compared to their British counterparts (especially English girls).
You may think you may not even have an accent, but you totally do, and they find it delightful. That isn’t to say that all English women are closed-off; it’s just that American women have a certain breezy, carefree “my life is an open book” way of living. British men love that we’re more than willing to “go there” and call out what needs calling out.
One man reported, “There’s nothing more sexy than a self-assured confident woman…I’ve never met an American woman that’s isn’t — [it’s] hot! Who doesn’t love someone who is completely confident (NOT cocky, but confident)? Simply put, British men aren’t mad that non-British women are crazy for them. She also writes for Thought Catalog, Hello Giggles, and Throwback.
So do whatever it is you have to do to boost your confidence, whether it’s wearing your favorite pair of sky-high heels or psyching yourself up in the mirror beforehand. They know simply being British is like having a superpower, and they’re well aware of the spell they cast.
In my (albeit limited) experience, it seems like American women and English men often find romance, yet American men and English women make for unlikely couples.The American (who is married to an Englishman, of course) conducted a study comparing the flirting behaviors of New Yorkers and Londoners and concluded that of the four demographics (English men, English women, American women, and American men), English men are, by far, the most afraid of rejection.This would seem like a setback for the men—but not if you happen to be courting an American woman who hears Mr. Photo: Getty Images Anglo-American couple Englishman Ben and American Becca Elman noticed that at their wedding, they weren't the only ones hooking up: Seven of Ben's mates got together with Becca's female friends.If that’s a stereotype, I hope it’s one they’re happy to bear.So when Date British approached me about writing this post, I said, absolutely.
