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.
But how do daters in the UK actually differ from daters in the US?
Joining a local organization is a great way to meet men, be sure to sign up for mixed (men and women) team sports clubs playing tennis, handball, etc.
With regards to targeting eligible men, be sure to hustle your way into the nicest venues (private dinner clubs, VIP areas) around. Since you know you’ll be going back home sooner rather than later, is this something you’d advise against? The hot bartender is always tempting for a fling, but he’s probably done it before.
Physically, English men are much taller than American men.
As university was free for many decades in the UK, it’s quite likely British men will have attended college and hold a degree.
