Many women around the world yearn for Englishmen. Women just adore their cute accent, exotic customs, polite behavior, and their notoriety for making even the blandest remarks sound like brilliant witticisms. Dating a British guy takes some adjustment. Here are some tips that might help you when going out with a British man.
British gentlemen are stereotyped as having polite behavior and good manners. They are also known for being reserved, uptight, and stuffy. Don’t assume British guys want you to speak and behave exactly the same way.
Englishmen are so used to dating uptight British women that they find it refreshing and exciting to see the carefree attitude of American women.
Be prepared for his affection
Englishmen are affectionate, both in action and in verbal language. Expect to be called mushy nicknames like "dear," "duckie," "sweetie" and other pet names that might offend you if an American guy called you these same cheesy names.
In British dating, this is a normal sign of affection. Also, look forward to seeing your guy’s wild side once he invites you to his apartment. You’ll see. British guys are reserved only in public but they love romance and affection in private.
Appreciate his loyalty
British guys are loyal to their women. They enjoy looking at and flirting with other women but they stick to their dates or partners. Even if they stray, it is not because they do not care for you. They want relationships to last. This is especially true when they date American women, whom they find much sexier and more fun to be with compared to English women.
Laugh with him
Englishmen are known for their sense of humor. When they engage in informal conversations, what they talk about can be so steeped in the British "sense of humor" that Americans usually fail to get the joke.
For example, a British guy was discussing to an American woman about plastic surgery and what procedure would she choose. The woman said breast reduction and the guy retorted and said he would choose penis reduction. He waited for a laugh but the American woman seriously replied, "Why, do you have a problem?"
Beware of the disappearing English guy
Be warned. Englishmen are known for their disappearing acts after seemingly perfect dates. Here’s the "English Guy Disappearing Act" scenario: The guy hits on you mercilessly, initiates all the dates, and acts completely smitten to building a relationship.
He then goes on to discuss your future together, talks about you meeting his friends and family, and pays you sweet compliments. Then, he suddenly stops seeing you and you will probably never hear from him again.
