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 don't know? But, I would love to have a foreign accent if this is the case.
The reason SOME women like accents is the same reason SOME men like fake boobs, it's different!
Personally I'm fond of an Irish accent.
What a coincidence peeples, I happen to have an Irish accent. LOL
This was not meant to be a "match-making" thread...lol!!
This may be a question better answered by the ladies but i will give it a go all the same.
Probably it is due to the fact that an exotic accent tends to boost a man's sex appeal. it makes a man stand out from the rest making him more noticeable than others.
Hope that helps.
They may see it as a safe way to compliment you. " Love your aftershave!" sounds too personal unless you know someone. Or do you get that as well? You did mention you look like Jim Carrey....it's a tough life.
Seriously, some accents can be very attractive. I'm not sure if it's because someone from a different region seems exotic, or just a nice change from the everyday accents you hear. Maybe you should look into being a voiceover artist!
I really can't answer that. How do you explain why you're attracted to certain qualities over others? British and Australian accents are just hot, for some unknowable reason. I don't have the same reaction to Italian or French accents. Why? I have no idea. The same reason that when a man picks up a guitar his hot factor automatically goes up a few notches, I guess.
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!
Lol... I shall be telling him no such thing Crystal.
Some women enjoy men who are from a different country, in their minds a different world. It's different from the usual guys they see every day and it's nice to have that spark of the unknown or new. However, I don't like foreign accents.
I think because it makes the man seem a little exotic and out of the ordinary. Adds a little excitement. Enjoy the attention!
I was always attracted to men with accents (including my husband) because it resembled adventure. It resembled traveling to a new place. It resembled being brave enough to come to a place by themselves. It resembled not being a redneck. It resembled maybe having some things to talk about. I like that!
Perhaps it is indeed the unique nature of your British accent (i.e. a British actor named David Niven held quite an attraction). However, Canadian women must deal with that inherent nature of Canadian men always chatting about ice hockey and perhaps their idea that "dance" is indeed a hockey fight; maybe just maybe you are indeed on favoured ground eh! I could go on and on; yet maybe this photograph will score with you, in it is Bob and Doug Mckenzie and their guest Geddy Lee (famous yet typically Canadian in looks)...
Because it makes the same old lines: fresh!!
Plus there is always a chance he will think your accent is adorable, too.
I don't know exactly - but I think people are right that it sounds foreign and exotic. I think the media contributes - often the sexy, dashing lead has a lovely foreign accent.
When I was 10, I traveled abroad for the first time. When I got off the plane in London, I fell instantly in love with the man speaking over the loudspeaker. Who knows what the man might have looked like, but to my 10 year old ears, he was the sexiest man alive!
I've always been attracted to the British, and especially Australian accents. I have no idea why that is. Like someone else stated, no others really stand up against these, and I know many women who feel the same. I once watched a documentary about the tones (the depth of the voice) that attracts both men and women. I bet it has something to do with that. The documentary pointed out that women are more attractive to men during their ovulation times as their voices change... are pitched higher (or something of the sort). It was very interesting, so I dare to say that biology/physiology has something to do with it.

I come from Russia, but having lived in New Zealand for almost 10 years, I've lost a lot of my Russian accent. To a point, where people wouldn't mistake me for a foreigner lol. I have a slight accent, but only the very slight. Unlike my mum and dad who still have a strong Russian accent and they...
