Why do women love men with accents?


I can't count the times Canadian women comment on my accent. It gets kinda awkward at times. What's with that?

    I have actually considered the voice over thing as more and more North American commercials seem to have British accents on them...

    That's scary - my 18 year old plays guitar and can put on a very convincing British accent even though he was born in Canada!

    Aha, you are the first to "turn the tables" so to speak.

    Interesting stuff. Actually my accent is often mistaken for Australian too, so I guess that adds to the situation then...

    That made me laugh because whenever we travel back to the UK and hear the voice over the loudspeaker, we think how common he sounds!

    Ouch, remind me never to talk to you in person then (unless of course you are British yourself) or at least I should try to put on my best Canadian twang! Thanks for the input...

    The thing is I'm just being myself with no ulterior motive - not attempting to do any sex appeal boosting at all. Perhaps it's just that I stand from the crowd as you say...

    Firstly, nice nice use of "eh" at the end of the sentence - very Canadian. How do you know that I don't chat about ice hockey too, albeit in my British accent?? However, the favoured ground argument could have some validity...hmm.
