Advice for dating a british man

I’ve never been a girl who desired dating a guy from outside of the US, but I wasn’t opposed to the idea of it.Christopher and I have been dating for over a year now, and I can honestly say that dating him has been very exhilarating.He is less inclined to wear tacky t-shirts and exposing his boxers with saggy jeans.Instead he wears jeans that fit comfortably but stay at his waist, sometimes he’ll wear a nice jumper or just a plain t-shirt, but he always looks clean. Did you know that I’ve been able to identify a British man based off his shoes!?

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.” It’s not a common coupling that you’ll see in my hometown.I remind them that dating a Brit is no different than dating an American because you don’t experience extreme culture shock when visiting their country, and you can understand their language naturally without carrying a translation dictionary (although some people may beg to differ).To this day, there are still things that Chris and I stumble upon that have different words or phrases in our countries. It will throw me off from time to time in our conversations because naturally my mind has to “translate” his sentence and covert it within seconds before I truly understand what he was talking about.

For example,“Sprinkles” or so we call it in America, edible confetti-like sugar bits in a variety of colour. My family loves it when Chris comes over to visit, especially my young cousin Kacy.

In Britain they’re called “Hundreds and thousands”. She likes to point to random things in the house and tell Chris what we call it in America “We call that suitcase”.
