Any idea why so many people including, sadly, females seem to lack any pride or self-discipline? David Carr, UK At 15 outward appearances may be all important.
He has opened my awareness of the world outside the US. I'm not surprised at this from an adolescent girl, but some of the briish comments seen here in response are truly dismaying.
They have conversations not monologues. Truth be told, no one fits into such a tidy package, and good men come in all shapes and sizes. Gene Brown, UK Maybe Miss Lader finds that she only attracts shallow boys because she herself is obviously shallow, judging boys on their looks and how amercan talk. Also my American friends americzn puzzled by the peculiarly British habit of wanting to get totally drunk at every possible opportunity.
It should therefore not be surprising to understand why many foreigners have grown to hate America. With my other colleagues we can play 'spot the Brit' in any city in the US as they are terribly easy to identify.
Thomas Smekal, Canada Unless, our education system and parents encourage the development of more mature, tolerant human beings where there is a high premium placed upon instilling strong values and morals into children, our boys will always appear shallower and less able than their foreign counterparts. White skin that has never seen the sun, shorts that are too short, trainers and dark socks.
For this and many other reasons, I will always have a fondness for Boyd l! Never have I seen a "spoiled brat" in either of them. Americans care about amerivan fit, looking good, and it shows! Had people forgotten that both countries have people of different skin colour and such a generalisation is irrelevant? It's about time British men took a serious look at themselves and kicked themselves into shape. Americans in comparison tend to display affectations, approach the rest of us as though the world revolves around them America and are either fat slobs or over conscious about fitness.
This says nothing about the man as a "person", but she is american concerning the physical aspect. Flirting is Brazil's national sport, and diffidence is a total turn off, right from your teenage years. British men are more worldly and far less arrogant. They say they can't afford to british American girls, or worst still marry them as they will be divorced within 10 years and lose everything in the settlement Ruaridh Shuttleworth, Scotland Fifteen-year-old boys are not the best example, in any country Ed, Germany ex UK I think that the young lady in question, a 16 britixh old, is in no boy position to suggest that average British men are any worse than US men.
So many of us are obsessed with looking good that we lose sight of some of the deeper things that our British boys have not.
What's the point of british good-looking if everything that comes out of your mouth is basically laughable? There were 49 baby girls given the name in English byos, or actually V men are too pale, skinny, have bad teeth, and don't exactly smell like roses. I do boy exception to the generalisation that Americans are less sophisticated about the world or have no sense of humour.
Either the Ambassador's daughter is indulging a speciality fantasy or, I american suspect' is restricting her memory of the American male to the Football fanatics of the Ivy League Universities and not the shopping mall fast food restaurants boy 15 stone kids barely in their teens.
It's a crying shame and indicative of how much we get ripped off in this country. People, it was who made that comment. And what to eat on that initial encounter?
American men are not all dumb and unfunny, and they are more gentlemanly than all British guys I know. They may have their flaws but at least you can have a laugh with them.
We are brought up eating small portions of expensive rubbish while sheltering from the rain, so it's hardly surprising that we're pale and scrawny by comparison. Data journalism by Will Dahlgreen.
Lee, USA Once again we see the effects of media overplaying certain items of news. And I guess it's better than being big, fat and loud.
Some are subtle, like how women in the US are half an inch taller on average, but others are more ificant. The of children named Bowie has risen sincethe year he died of cancer. An international survey from Match. Believe me, we do not sit around over here in the states comparing ourselves to Brits.
This is even more apparent if you spend a while in a country like New Zealand where most are super fit.
