Dating a british man

I am in my first month of membership with Parship, but I have tried several other online dating sites previously.I am 30 years old, well-educated, well spoken, and I am told by both male and female friends that I am good company.

It is common knowledge that British men are dateable.

They have amazing accents, and they are charming and polite.

I completely disagree with the idea that suggesting a second date would seem 'too forward' I suspect it may often be the only way to get anywhere.

The absence of a 'spark' that you mentioned could be because they interpret your behaviour as cool or uptight (how's that for reversing stereotypes? Also, because 'dating' is not part of British culture, a lot of men view dates as a one-off interview and if by the end of it they don't think they will fall in love you, or sleep with you they don't see any point in asking you out again.

It is also possible that you may come across as a little bit 'hard work' or 'high maintenance' and British men certainly don't like that.

This could be purely because you have certain justified expectations of how a man ought to behave on a date but even simple things, like booking a table, arranging a place to meet can seem to them like hard work.

In the US I was very successful with men, but here it seems that though I have long dates that go on for hours with laughter, interesting conversation, and sometimes even a kiss, the men never want to see me again!

The problem is that I never seem - at least in Britain - to be able to get past the first date!

They get even more confusing when you add in the local slang and strange swear words!
