I’ve been struck very recently by the charm of an Englishman, and if any of you have had the pleasure of meeting one, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that they’re different from our American counterparts. It mean something quite different from our use of cunt here. His explanation went as follows, “The C word in Britain [is] usually associated with people that jubilate in the inane or irrelevant (usually accompanied with undue self-importance).
Within one minute of him ordering, I'll bet you 0 one of the girls will approach him and ask him if he is British, followed by some story about a trip they may have been on or planned later that year to the UK," Elman says.
"It is like a superpower that only the ex-pat Brits and Australians are aware of. Or scent."Well, OK — Brits do tend to have the worst teeth in the world, often forget to shower and are light years behind in dress sense — but teeth can be fixed, new clothes can be purchased and the smell can be washed out. Real men give off a scent that can't be bottled up and sold."4.
I honestly have no idea as to why this is the case — but it is."2. Seems questionable, but we'll take his word for it."An American woman deserves to be treated like a real princess, and British guys know a lot more about royalty than their American counterparts. So really, Brits come far more qualified for the job."3. Though Refined, British Men are Also Rugged Ben thinks that all of that superfluous padding in American football is for babies. But it does beg the question—which one would you rather have protecting you in a dark alley? British Men Love American Women In order to impress a British man, all you have to do is show up and be yourself ...
Accustomed to Respecting Royalty — They Treat Women Like Princesses American ladies with a taste for the finer things in life would do well dating a British guy, Ben says. Education in the UK goes far beyond school subjects and grades. While Fancier Than Americans, British Men are Less Prissy You want a man's man wrapped up in luxury? British men aren't afraid to get a little knocked up."While American men are playing dress-up with big head guards and shoulder pads for their next football game, British guys are playing rugby without any protection. so we hear (from Ben, of course)."The big reason why American women should date British men is that we really love American women.
Looking past the popular, sexy accent though, is an individual who’s not just charming for the sake of being charming. It’s a well crafted line that he gives you, intended to make you laugh.Their accent alone makes American women swoon When the London-bred, Ben Elman, married his Connecticut-born beau on New Year's Eve in 2008, he was completely inundated with requests from her American friends desperately seeking snag a date (or two) with single, British men.Two years and one "" moment later, he and his wife created Date British Guys.com, a dating site aimed towards American women looking to meet and date Brits. Well, that's all fine and dandy, but Christian Bale's abs aside, why should us American gals date a Brit? The Accent No doubt about it, Ben's got us on this one.Not to mention Gwen Stefani (and her husband, Londoner Gavin Rossdale).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.That’s right, the accent adoration is a two-way street.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).The night I met George, the epitome of a charming Englishman, I was immediately drawn to him. After a long night out wandering the city with George, he put me into a cab. It hadn't even crossed my mind, but after the aloof coolness of the hipsters who populated my alma mater, Englishmen—with their jokes and their endearing awkwardness and their humor—were a welcome change.Even though he wasn't stereotypically handsome, he was delightful and quick to make fun of himself—and to tease me: the typical American. When I wrote my college friend Rachel about George, she wrote back: What is with you and English guys?So when Date British approached me about writing this post, I said, absolutely.It’s hard to resist a British man; they seem so utterly charming no matter what, even if they’re cursing.
