coincidence) that I work for an online dating site headquartered in the UK. I’ve always wondered what dating British men would be like, but since I was very young when I lived abroad and am now quite smitten with an accent-less California surfer boy, I haven’t been able to test the waters myself, so to speak. Check out her insight into dating abroad, falling in love on holiday and of course, the key differences between British and American guys. Are there any major differences between dating British men vs American men? Men in the UK are not as animated as American men might be, they are more subtle and toned down; to American women, sometimes this seems a bit serious or lacking in expression.
I recently had the chance to chat with an female NYU grad who now works in digital marketing in London. Typically, this is just their way of masking any nervousness as most English men struggle to socialize with pretty girls without holding an alcoholic beverage; they loosen up when half a pint is down them.
In his book Notes from a Small Island, the American author Bill Bryson wrote: "I can never understand why Londoners fail to see that they live in the most wonderful city in the world.
It is far more beautiful and interesting than Paris..lively than anywhere but New York - and even New York can’t touch it in lots of important ways.” With Bryson’s words echoing in my head, I was dreading my move from London to New York City, which was the result of an expiring visa.
I write from experience, as I personally have fallen victim to the mistakes of many American men in the past, and the horrors have haunted me ever since.
