My Fascination With British Men

I have had this fascination with British men probably since I was 11 when "Larry" moved into our subdivision. He had this very proper, clipped British accent and I remember placing bets with my friends as to who would kiss him first. I think my friends and I annoyed him to no end!
Fast forward and I there is something about British men that even today I just lust for! It's not just the accent, because Cockney accents turn me off actually, but it's more of a cultural perception I guess. Most British men come across very reserved and gentlemanly or "proper" for lack of a better description. It makes me want to sexually liberate them! I can't describe it.....
I met a British guy from SF on this website last year that I had a relationship with for about 7 months. He is no longer on this site. His name was Colin and he had so many wonderful qualities that just captivated me. He was well-traveled, well-educated, liked art, enjoyed fine wines, was a good father, liked fine dining. He was sarcastic and witty but a bit cantankerous and arrogant at times as well. Sexually he was open and daring. Just a wonderful person all the way around.
Don't get me wrong, I like American men too and keep my preferences open all the way around. British men have some sort of mystique however that drives me wild...Maybe I need to start hanging out at Meehans again...?

I don't think your alone on that, I know many female friends who go weak at the knees to the british men or women whatever your preference.

Carpe Diem

Isn't that strange. I'm English and I love American accents especially New York and LA. Maybe we just like what we're not used to hearing.

It is the refinement; the cultural upbringing. We (men) sometimes forget that manners are a reflection of the character. Good manners are a way of showing others that you have respect for them--and most women want to be respected.
My guess is that an American gentleman would be as captivating to you also. But then, when was the last time you left a table, and a man rose from his seat? In trying to train my children correctly, we only get about as far as "Open the door for a lady" before the gentlemenly acts seem silly.
Pulling out the chair; offering to help someone out of their seat; providing a handkerchief when needed (what American carries a hanky?); rising when a woman enters the room; rising when a woman rises from a table; waiting until the host eats before eating; picking up your cards only after the dealer had; and hundreds of other "gentlemanly" things.
Methinks you need to be treated with dignity and respect! I wish you will be.

I tend to agree with allot of the above, although I will relate it to something a little closer to home. It's a combination of language, manners (just common courtesy sometimes), and upbringing. It's how Southern Males used to be perceived in America....the art of being a Southern Gentleman has long been the stereotype is quite the opposite.
