Getting recommended by a sex advice columnist (or anyone for that matter!) always makes our day

Posted on August 23, 2009 by peacefulyorkshire

yahooavatar15pacific birdyankeebeanWhen we know that our blog makes you laugh, helps you out–well, frankly that is the best thing we can see as the outcome for our many ramblings!  Since we have been on about lingerie lately (see post below), this feeling of joy was the equivalent as going to TkMaxx and seeing La Perla 75% off in our size (yes it can happen). Our readers can really make our day!! So, naturally we were mega-delighted last week when Dan Savage, a nationally syndicated sex advice columnist in Seattle, posted about ‘She’s Not From Yorkshire’ on his “Love Letter of the Day“. To Dan and our lovely and kind reader “J” who recommended us, thank you!

They wrote:

“I just listened to Episode 148 of the “Savage Love” podcast in which a young woman calls in to ask about a man she met in England. I thought that she might find it helpful to know that she’s not alone; there are many American women who’ve fallen in love with, married, and made things work with a British guy. In fact, there’s a blog She’s Not From Yorkshire co-written by three American women involved with British men. One has married a Brit and is currently living in London, another has been living near York with her fiance but they have just moved back to America to get married and they plan to live there, and the third is currently living near York and is seeing a series of British guys.

I thought this might be of use to her in that the blog has apparently become an unofficial source of information and advice on international romance, and the wonderful young ladies have much to say on several topics, including how to deal with long-distance romance, deciding where to live, and many other subjects.

Anyway. I love your show, and I just thought that this bit of info might be useful to a young woman who’s obviously rather tormented.


Not that we’re trying to blow our own horn. Well, we are a little–but only because we are  American and are born comfortable in doing so. Oh, and we’re also very proud and very grateful for our devoted readers that always keep us inspired. Now go listen to Dan’s cheeky advice for this lovelorn lady! And of course, what do you think–was his advice spot on?

With love,

Peaceful, Yankeebean and Pacificbird xxx

    Thanks so much for the visa post! I’ve been scouring the internet trying to find some positive stories about American ladies marrying british dudes. The fiance (Uk) and I (US) are currently doing long distance while I do a grad program in the States, but we’re planning for me to join him in England next year-it all seems so daunting and it’s great to hear from someone who actually applied for the fiancee visa and got through! Did it really only take 5 weeks from applying to acceptance? Again, thanks :)

    Hi Ladies,

    Can you do a post on the immigration and citizenship issues you went through when you married a UK citizen? Did you have to give up your American citizenship?

      Heyhey Mack – thanks for stopping by!
      There should be a new post up first thing tomorrow containing my own personal Visa-saga :)

      I didn’t have to give up my American citizenship, thank God. I really hate that idea :) I’m also not technically British, though (not yet anyway). My current Visa means I can stay indefinitely forever no matter what – but I’m only a resident here, not a citizen. That means no voting for me, which is annoying (and that’s probably the reason I’ll eventually bite the bullet and apply for citizenship).

      Are you on the cusp of beginning all the Visa-stuff? Keep us posted on what you’re up to!

      Mack – here’s a post just for you :) Getting a UK Visa: One Woman’s Saga

      Let us know how you’re getting on with your Visa shenanigans!

    This is awesome! Having lived in San Francisco for 6 years, I loved reading Dan Savage in the weekly chronicle. And after hearing his advice to a love-lorn woman who fell in love with an Englishman, I love him even more. Great that you got such a nod associated with his site!

      I know, i know! When I used to live in Denver I used to read him in the “Onion” and he always had me laughin’. But…. even funnier was the questions that people would write in to seek his advice on, everything from masks to love triangles…;)

    Well done ladies!! All publicity is good publicity they say (or something along those lines)!
