Survey Says British Accent Is The Most Attractive In The World

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the results of The Time Out Global Dating Survey have been released, and it turns out that Brits are deemed to have the most attractive accents in the world.

English-speakers overall did quite well, with Americans coming in 2nd and the Irish taking 3rd.

The inhabitants of Australia captured 4th place, but the real shocker is which country came in 5th.

Believe it or not, France with its long-standing history of romantic people and places only received enough votes to land it in the relatively so-so position.

Of the more than 11 thousand people who participated, only about 7-and-a-half percent said that French, which has long been known as the 'language of love', made their knees weakest.

The British, on the other hand, pulled in a whopping 27 percent of the hottest-accent vote.

Attraction is not, of course, all about how a person speaks, and a number of other dating preferences were revealed in the survey.

Both genders in a number of cities said that the most appealing professions for a potential mate to be in are those related to finance and banking.

Common deal breakers include not resembling one’s profile picture and having questionable political views.
