Sorry British Guys.....

.....but a groundbreaking study has revealed that your accent is no longer considered sexy:

Don't worry though as I'm sure some of us would beg to disagree

Re: Sorry British Guys.....

Agree. They've become a dime a dozen.

A British accent without humor and intelligence is like a pub without beer: no fun.

Re: Sorry British Guys.....

Interesting to note that the top five accents for women are ones that I can't understand when they speak English......maybe what they say is just not that important

Also, "low-lighting, soft music" etc isn't what we think of when we think of the Brits - I think of tea and Victorian furniture!

Jealous much?

Oh and I don't care what any silly "ground breaking study" suggests, I find British accents very sexy.

Re: Sorry British Guys.....

I'm smitten with the British accent, it's so elegant and refined.

Ever notice how anglo-saxon gents fall over themselves upon hearing a pretty lady with a pleasant voice, speak with a French, Italian or German accent ?

They all sound the same to most non-Brits.
