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? He was English, witty, slightly bumbling, and had a crooked smile. He was also part of an emerging pattern: He wasn't the first British guy I'd romantically clicked with. When I first moved to Beijing right after graduating from Brown, I never intended to fall for so many English guys.
As would Emma Stone (who is dating Brit Andrew Garfield).
And we’re just as timid We simply cannot say ‘literally’ in an American accent In fact, our American accents are nowhere near as good as we thought they were But we love American culture Although we think Franklin & Marshall is a clothing brand, not a university[sc: MPU1]We are somehow sophisticated yet rugged But our teeth are just terrible And we have so much slang it’s unreal We even use American slang that Americans haven’t heard of But it’s still mad funny to make us use American phrases And inexplicably, we genuinely do use the phrase ‘bloody’[sc: MPU1]We will always apologise when someone bumps into us We didn’t do anywhere near as many after school activities But we can drink way more And have to pick up the pieces when a certain American girl tries to keep up We’ve had loads of girlfriends and don’t understand recreational dating We lazily replace ‘th’ with ‘f’. Hopefully this guide has helped you understand us British boys or how American girls view them.
Allow me to state the obvious: British guys are dreamy.
But even if you’re from the “smallest lamest” town, your British beau will love your accent as much as you love his.
If you’ve not yet found that special person from across the pond, don’t panic.
