The appeal of the English

I've noticed that quite a few female celebrities in the US today are dating or married to British men. Cases in point: Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwen Stefani. And of course, the one and only Madonna.

Perhaps these trans-atlantic marriages have been a long standing tradition but one thing's for sure: there is a certain appeal to Englishmen (I use the term 'Englishmen' loosely here to include the Scottish, Welsh and Irish) that cannot be easily explained. And that is why we love them.

The way they speak. I especially love this. Perhaps it's because I love the language but to hear it spoken using that close-mouthed, crisp, English accent can be such a turn-on, mouthing those perfectly-formed, grammatically solid sentences.

The songs they sing. I mean, who here does not like Chris Martin or Bono or The Beatles?

The clothes they wear. Granted some blokes don't seem to wear anything else all year long but it's also the way they wear it. You can almost always tell the Americans from the English. Especially when it comes to hairstyles. The English seem to have adorably dorky coiffures. Just look at the two princes.

Perhaps even the way they smell. To some people, at least. We all have our little olfactory fetishes.

If you could date a man from any country, which nationality would you pick?
