I’ve always believed that bonding over humor is one of the best ways for a couple to connect, so don’t be afraid to crack a few jokes (and we know you won’t be). To be frank (and we’ve learned that we should be), British men do in fact like that, contrary to popular belief, America isn’t as hung up on sex as you would think. Embrace every moment and go with the flow, as they say. Did you know there’s a stereotype British men have about American women — that we’re brash? Sure, some of them think we’re “too loud”, but some praise us for being “slightly aggressive.” Just keep in mind that being brash is okay — being full on rude is not.

The American (who is married to an Englishman, of course) conducted a study comparing the flirting behaviors of New Yorkers and Londoners and concluded that of the four demographics (English men, English women, American women, and American men), English men are, by far, the most afraid of rejection.
This would seem like a setback for the men—but not if you happen to be courting an American woman who hears Mr. Photo: Getty Images Anglo-American couple Englishman Ben and American Becca Elman noticed that at their wedding, they weren't the only ones hooking up: Seven of Ben's mates got together with Becca's female friends.
Not to mention Gwen Stefani (and her husband, Londoner Gavin Rossdale).
In my (albeit limited) experience, it seems like American women and English men often find romance, yet American men and English women make for unlikely couples.
