To read more about our our story and how we met, check out this article.
I have been asked by my friends “What’s it like to date a British man?
I can only assume that when anyone asks me what it’s like to date a Brit they’re mostly interested in knowing if their stereotypes are true.
Tea sipping, bad teeth, overly posh speaking guys who all look like James Bond. Even when he banters with his friends and is relentlessly taking the piss out of them, he sounds so dramatic and smart.
We will laugh at each other as we try and mimic each others accents, mostly it’s just me trying though.
Chris is still far too embarrassed to really try to sound American!
Yes they drink tea more than we do, but it’s not like Chris carries around tea bags in his wallet waiting for his clock to turn to 4pm. The way we communicate, the way our relationship develops, and our cultures are not that diverse, but it’s enough to feel a bit amazed as the days and weeks go on. He occasionally drinks tea, dries his laundry all around his bedroom, and finds it weird that in America we use window screens to prevent bugs from flying into the house- even though he complained about a bee getting in our room in England before!
He prefers to wear casual blazers on a night out, and not complain to his waiter when he orders a beef burger and instead they serve him a chicken breast fillet.
I have been correct more than once about this observation. They are something you wouldn’t see an American guy wear unless he was going to work some where professionally, or dress for a formal event or party. I thought only women’s shoes had pointy tips like these, but I was surprised to see that British men will rock them too.
I’ve seen guys in England wearing these shoes around town while shopping, having a night out with some friends, and even at a house party. I imagine if an American man wore them, he’d feel like a clown, their dress shoes are not nearly as elongated as the styles I have seen in England.
