The American men I've dated were (coincidentally) all from DC.And overall, I found them swaggering, careerist, and utterly terrified of commitment. 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!
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?
I am in my first month of membership with Parship, but I have tried several other online dating sites previously.
I am 30 years old, well-educated, well spoken, and I am told by both male and female friends that I am good company.
How does a girl from Texas end up with a tendency to go after English guys? Three years and four English boyfriends later, I was left wondering the same thing.
In my defense, I'd say Gwyneth Paltrow, who recently announced her separation from Chris Martin—who, in turn, blamed the breakup on his own lack of enthusiasm for life—would probably understand the initial attraction.
