yahooavatar15Dear Reader,

Us 3 American women from “She’s Not From Yorkshire” didn’t start this blog so we could focus all of our attention on English men. Or American men.  Or what’ s the difference? Or  what it’s like to date one (great!). Heck no!! But… according to our trusty Google Analytics, many of our trusty readers have found our blog by typing into Google:

  • “I am in love with an Englishman”
  • “I hate British men”
  • “Dating an Englishman long distance through the internet”
  • “How to make love to an Englishman this weekend”
  • “How to meet and fall in love with an Englishman”
  • “The Differences between American men and English men”

Your searches have made us laugh (because we have searched the same things ourselves!), and our posts about our Englishmen sure do get the hits! We  have figured out what it is…there just aren’t that many resources for American women dating/loving/sleeping with/married to British men, are there?! Its a topic still being researched– oh yes, that along with genetic cloning and alien abduction.

But if you are looking for answers (about as likely as solving the 1948 Roswell incident) and want a little humor about this topic, then have a look at this post to cheer you up when its the stupid Credit Crunch and its cold but  its almost Valentine’s Day so you might be looking for love so this might help.


“When it comes to the attractiveness of British men, American women are simply incapable of rendering a proper judgment. Bad teeth, the unibrow, Guinness bloat, doesn’t matter; hell, we think Tony Blair is hot. Studies have proven that British accents are, in fact, the number one cause of hot women dating nerdy men. (Number two cause? Woody Allen.) There’s nothing wrong with dating men who have British accents; Madonna liked her husband’s so much she got one of her own. But there are scoundrels out there—those who use their cute British accents to lure innocent birds to their flat for a friendly game of hide the blood sausage. Sorry.”

(Go on, click over, you know you need to have a laugh. What, its not like WE have any answers either!) And,  in the meantime, we will keep writing and trying to figure out life in the UK with British men too.

Yours Sincerely,

    I too absolutely adore my British boyfriend and we too surprisingly fell for one another pretty quick and hard. I really liked the other post when she said she got in a fuss with her Brit within the first week. Well we didn’t fussthe first week, but we do from time to time. And with great passion. Not only is he a wonderful lover and calls me quite ‘randy’ but he is truly the closest friend I’ve ever had. He’s from Sheffield and the first month I had a really hard time understanding him. Sometimes after we would meet, I would be sad since I wanted to know all that he said to me, but I didn’t. It’s been over a year now and one of the greatest years of my life. I love his accent and it turns me on when he says garage, boulevarde, and a lot of other things. He lets me be myself and seems to enjoy my spunk. I made him really nervous the first few months with my straightforwardness and I still love it when he eyes dart around like he’s nervous. Every American girl should have at least one Brit.

    American girls, to me are simply Awesome. met my girl via a flirting site. yes she is a typical American woman. but thats what i joined that site for. and we have gone through all what you would expect lovers to do via the Internet. and come out the other end.
    she is currently living with me on a 6 month Visa. she did come over simply for a week visit then stayed. to go into all the details why would take far too long.
    we are totally in love and by the end of this week to be Engaged to be married. ( still awaiting my divorce though).
    I love my American Gal. so very very much i wouldn’t change her for the world.
    she loves everything British at the moment. especially the accent ( mine) but for sure given time she’ll will find things to annoy her. but by that time i will hopefully be out of Blighty for a wondrous life in the USA.

    Hi Steve – Thanks for your insight – interestingly, I always thought the female American “sass” was a component of an equal terms relationship as opposed to a characteristic of a matriarch. Perhaps I am old fashioned in that thinking?

    And as a side anecdote, my dad made reference to lager-swilling football types when I first told him about my British love interest. It was said lovingly though, and I took that to mean, “At least you didn’t fall in love with some boring loser.” :)

  5. Steve Shawcross September 4, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    I think the attractiveness of American women to British men, depends on the man in question. Some blokes like a matriarch figure, and “sassy” American women will appeal to such men.

    Other men like to be on equal terms with their partners, so find American women a bit scary in that sense. I think the reason Americans can have a bad reputation, is because they are perceived as aggressive and immodest. Yes a stereotype I know, but that’s how Americans are often seen here– sorry :(

    Of course there are the chauvinists who will find American ladies too bumptious, since you won’t stand for any crap or sexist nonsense– and rightly so! Although in recent years British women have become feistier, so male chauvinist pigs are dying out thankfully.

    True about the accents, I’m not sure if the Americans find Glaswegian or Brummie so attractive though? [Ha]

    I hadn’t realised British men had such a good reptutation abroad, perhaps it’s down to our manners? I always thought people abroad had us down as meek at best, or lager-swilling football louts at worst!

    I’m done dating adorably cute yet irresponsible, younger military americans. They’re more trouble than fun. At 31, I’ve just begun seeing this attractive 37 yr old english guy, and I’m surprisingly looking forward to seeing him again and again. He’s charming, intelligent, accomplished (you can tell I’m into him lol), and he seems to like me. It may not be going as fast as I’d like, but time an patience is what makes good quality friendships… and more (so I’ve heard lol). Let’s put it to the test. Good luck to us all.

    • yankeebean September 8, 2009 at 7:34 pm

      Hi HawaiiGal – thanks for stopping by! It’s interesting that you say ‘It may not be going as fast as I’d like’ – that’s exactly what happened when I got together with my guy.

      I was all riled up and ready to go long before he ever got his act together. The truth is, I’ve never been particularly shy or patient when it comes to approaching my prey, I mean men… ;)

      I wonder if any other Sass-fiesty American women have noticed the same thing?

  7. M. Teti July 23, 2009 at 3:43 am

    Hi girls, I am American woman who has been married for 20 years with an American guy. Recently divorced I started dating a Englishman. It’s been 3 months and it’s been exciting. His accent did help with the attraction but to be honest, it was the different personality and approach from him rather than your average American. He’s 6 years older than me, drinks his tea, watches his BBC, very intellegant, makes meals from home. He has the high pitch in his voice when he’s happy. He has been in the states for the last 7 years. At the age of 45, you can’t take the Brit out of him..not that I want too. :) We laugh, we do argue but I realize it’s his and my personality…not just him :)
    I am very fortunate to become very close friends with him. And not to be a hopeless romatic, I can’t meet a guy in my back yard to become close friends with, I meet this incredible guy from England. I have nothing bad to say about it. Thanks for this incredible blog. M

    I stumbled upon your blog by accident when I googled “Englishman loves American Woman”. You can tell that I love Englishmen. I don’t know why that is maybe because of watching “Masterpiece Theater” here in the states since I was little. I’m from New York City and I hope one day to fall in love with an Englishman and live in Paris. But I would love to see London. Believe it or not I have never been in England but I hope to be there one day. I guess I really should go to England if I ever hope to meet Englishmen. Anyway I enjoyed reading your blog.

    Thank you.

    nyclady :)

    Hi J
    Yes, I’ve heard it said many times before that American women are feisty, intimidating and a little scary… ask a lot of British men and they will tell you that one. BUT on the other hand most men will say that a woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to let anyone know is also sexy too– I mean, who wants to date a doormat?
    Oh, i forgot to say that Englishwomen find American women a bit scary too… We have many post on this blog about our experiences with English women– hmm. Maybe American women scare everyone on this little island just a bit. haha

  10. j February 25, 2009 at 3:58 pm

    Hmm…my British husband is from the south, but I’ve never heard him say anything about wanting to murder anything – unless it’s in reference to sales people or call centers.
    I wasn’t attracted to my husband by his accent. Really, I just thought he was hot (even before he opened his mouth), but I can confirm British men are intimidated by American women. He thinks I am ‘just a bit scary’ even now! ;)

  11. yankeebean February 8, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    LMAO!!! I laughed SO HARD when I read this… I’m still dying a little…

    ‘Hide the blood sausage’??? My English guy is a vegetarian, is that why I’ve never heard this? :D

  12. peacefulyorkshire February 6, 2009 at 8:35 am

    I asked the closest English man in my life… my boyfriend, Mr. Chill about murdering food items. He grew up in the North of England and said that the phrase is a “southern” one. Whatcha think?

    Iota, I am wanting to follow your lead and think that a post by a British man about American ladies…. great idea!

  13. Iota February 5, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    Yup, murder is only for food.

    My guess is that most British men aren’t aware of the huge power of their British accent, and are rather intimidated by American girls, who they perceive as sassy and confident, and just a bit scary. Perhaps you should get a British guy to do a guest blog.

    I’m getting closer to my trip to Yorkshire to figure out if I want to be a pub keepers girlfriend or go back to my dreary american corporate job. Yes, I met an englishman…not sure it was the accent…he’s the only guy that I argued with the first week of meeting him, oh and the constant correcting, felt like the Liza chick in that movie where they teach her to be a proper lady. I like him as a person, accent aside, think he will compliment my laid back, go with the flow nature and give me the sense of urgency that I have lost. I can hear the urgency in his voice when the pitch gets higher in his cute english accent, makes me laugh. Loved the article.

    Wanker…sounds a lot nicer than what it means….some American words seem so much more descriptive.

  15. emma February 5, 2009 at 10:52 am

    hi, amusing post, just thought i’d point out a grievous error in the linked post. i’m british myself, and was shocked at the article’s error.
    i quote: “When he says, “I could murder a taxi right now” he means only that he wants a taxi very badly.” i don’t know if it differs amongst regions/people, but i would never EVER say that. the only time i would make reference to wanting to murder something meaning i wanted it badly would be in reference to a food item. ie “i could murder sandwich right now”. it honestly makes no sense referring to a taxi in that context. to my ears it just makes one sound a bit psychopathical. just thought i’d clear it up, so if a british man does say that to someone you don’t think it’s cute, but actually kind of scary, especially if he follows it by asking you to beat up a welshman (although why anyone would ever do that beats me…?)

  16. peacefulyorkshire February 5, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    Thanks Emma for letting us know about that wording in that post! I actually would never have known the difference in the contexts of the usage of “murder” when wanting something…. gosh I could have been dating a real life murderer this whole time…!
    Good thing we have such clever readers ;)

  17. peacefulyorkshire July 2, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    Hi NYC lady!
    Yep, a lot of people find us by typing exactly that :“Englishman loves American Woman”…. and yours was the tame one, we get all sorts of searches for things about English men.. hehe

    You know, British guys have a really good reputation abroad. They are so lucky, not like us Americans. We generally don’t have such great international reputations.
    The thing is you might feel differently if you knew what the average joe was like here in England. I wrote this post specifically to banish stereotypes about those lovely Brit blokes… would American women swoon if they new what the norm was?
    have a look!

    In the meantime, good luck with your search for your English hunka hunka. Keep us updated!
    –Peaceful xx

    M. Teti – thanks for stopping by! What a good story :) Even though I know every man is different and everyone has different taste, I still feel like I got the best kind of guy out there… my English guy.
