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.
This undoubtedly says more about the type of men I go for than it does about North American blokes as a whole.
But I cannot tell you how often I hear the same from British women.
Or how about Jennifer Lawrence (and her Englishman Nicholas Hoult)?The American men I've dated were (coincidentally) all from DC.And overall, I found them swaggering, careerist, and utterly terrified of commitment.Lastly, British men do a bit more grooming than American men, so be prepared for straightened hair (this is not unusual), well groomed eyebrows, and open shirts revealing a bit of chest hair.Also, men in the UK don’t cat-call after women or touch women while on a dance floor, so women here feel much more comfortable wearing more revealing clothing on dates and to clubs.
