However, I’ve seen way too many men criticize women as a whole but then start praising Eastern Asian women.
Some of these countries include Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, etc.
How does a girl from Texas end up with a tendency to go after English guys? Three years and four English boyfriends later, I was left wondering the same thing.
In my defense, I'd say Gwyneth Paltrow, who recently announced her separation from Chris Martin—who, in turn, blamed the breakup on his own lack of enthusiasm for life—would probably understand the initial attraction.
It's certainly true for me and other American women who live by Jane Austen's canon and never miss an episode of Downton Abbey: We're primed to put English men on a pedestal.
This frequent phenomenon, paired with the romantically timid disposition of many English men, works wonders."Most British men are terrified of rejection," said Jean Smith, a cultural anthropologist living in London.
The directness with which some American women approach relationships can be refreshing, as well as ego-boosting: "American women will probably pay men a lot more attention than English women, so for English guys, it's great.
They are delighted to be paid attention to," Smith said.
I’ve also had conversations with Japanese men as well that were married or dating.
In Japan, there is a huge emphasis on avoiding shame.
It's just not going to work." Even in the less extreme versions, are these kind of cultural "types" just too hard to overcome? Overall, more American women study abroad than American men, with the United Kingdom being the most popular destination.
That's not to say that the fairy tale always ends so well.

"English women want something more subtle."A mismatch in personality could also play a role.
