Dating an englishman
When I first went to England I was there purely to have fun, and enjoy my time with my lovely friend.
Meeting Christopher and developing feelings for him was a complete surprise!
But here it’s not uncommon with my family and friends, to just refer to hot apple cider as “cider”. The boys certainly do present themselves better in Britain than the American boys I’ve seen.
I wouldn’t say they are more fashionable than anyone, but I don’t see boys walking around town with their pants hanging off of their butts or wearing over sized sneakers, looking like a clown.
British guys look so handsome in suits, and they really do know how to wear them well!
I always find myself gawking at Chris when he dresses.
Yes they drink tea more than we do, but it’s not like Chris carries around tea bags in his wallet waiting for his clock to turn to 4pm. The way we communicate, the way our relationship develops, and our cultures are not that diverse, but it’s enough to feel a bit amazed as the days and weeks go on. He occasionally drinks tea, dries his laundry all around his bedroom, and finds it weird that in America we use window screens to prevent bugs from flying into the house- even though he complained about a bee getting in our room in England before!
For example,“Sprinkles” or so we call it in America, edible confetti-like sugar bits in a variety of colour. My family loves it when Chris comes over to visit, especially my young cousin Kacy.To read more about our our story and how we met, check out this article.I have been asked by my friends “What’s it like to date a British man?I laugh as I say that, I have honestly asked Chris to say “I love it when you scratch your butt” because with his accent, it’s still memorising.
Now of course he’ll deny that he is the one with the sexy accent and say it’s me, but we all know they have the sexy accent!I can only assume that when anyone asks me what it’s like to date a Brit they’re mostly interested in knowing if their stereotypes are true.
