just thought i’d say that the irish accent is the best, though the scottish is a close second! though a man with any accent (outside of an american one) is attractive! what do you guys think of the ‘southern bell’ accent?

It depends I suppose. Some ladies may have an accent which is not as "rural" as others. The "less rural" Southern accent can be quite nice. However, very "rough" accents in the US are not attractive, in my opinion.

I’ve been told that my accent is "cute" by some of your countrymen (or countrywomen, rather). I am not certain as to why.

wow, this is an intellectually stimulating conversation here. I think you guys have been checking out the 17 year old American girls, because the brand "Abercrombie" is soooo much more for high school girls. It’s all about H&M now. And what accents are you refering too? If it’s british, we only love your accents because we think you drink tea and biscuits with you grandmother at 2 pm everyday. The french accent is the cutest by far! What American girl doesn’t wear a bra?! And I hate to break it to you guys, but longer shorts are coming back in style now. I think if you guys are looking for easy girls, then you’re obviously easy yourself. Sounds like a perfect match!

What do you think of Norwegian, Swedish, Danish accents? And forget the stereotypes you’ve seen on TV, we don’t talk like hearing-impaired people or drunk Germans.

I guess I am taking the bait here by responding to this absurd thread, but here goes:
I am an American girl that does not fit the above described criteria. Not all of us are easy and dress to impress. I think alot of us American girls/women (and mabye a few men)actually appreciate European’s more conservative, humble approach to courting. Mabye I am just another romantic with idealized views of how people should act and treat eachother.

In addition, not all American girls (or Americans in general) go to Europe to party and hook up with Europeans. Europe is rich in unique cultures and deep rooted history, fascinating landscape, and beautiful people. There are Americans who love and appreciate the opportunity to escape and explore new countries and people.

Well, good luck to you all. Watch out for those pesky STDs.
Be well and happy travels.

People are different all around the world, also in the multi-faceted and diverse continent of Europe.

Have you ever been to a Scandinavian country by the way?

Just to clarify, American girls doesn’t equal Sorority girls. Not every girl in America belongs to a sorority and how can you even tell if they belong to one anyways? Unless they are wearing their greek logo on a t-shirt, but they obviously arent because they are wearing their Abercrombie shirts. Dwop your logic doesn’t make sense. And I can see why European girls would be so uptight, I mean if it means having to deal with guys with your mentality. But, don’t take that personally.

It is silly and incorrect to state that either you’re promiscuous or uptight. Those who categorise women as either this or that are either full of themselves or they have been turned down by women one time too many.

It sounds like how my country and its inhabitants are stereotyped. Smile

BTW, Solveig is a lovely Norwegian name, which means &quotath of the sun".
Unusual name for an English-speaker. Smile

As a Norwegian, I am offended by how you write about an important character in our myths: the troll. Frown

Actually Norwegian, Swedish and Danish all sound quite different. The Danish sound like they are talking with a potato in their mouths, Swedes and Norwegians all sound different depending upon what area they come from. I.e. south of Sweden sounds like the Swedish chef on the muppets, and some rural Norwegians sound like real country yokles.

Then you have New Norsk and Bokmal speakers and all the rural dialects, Norway can be a real confusing place when your Norwegian isn’t that good.

Yup Norwegians are quite an uptight group of people and difficult to get to know, quite different from Swedes and Danes who have much more friendly and easy going.

Yes, I know all this, I’m a full-fledged native Norwegian. We often make fun of how the Danes speak.

It’s "nynorsk" and "bokmål".

erik dude a on waht planet is a Swede more uptight than a Norwegian, norwegians are very straight laced whereas Swedes are party party party. I’m sure other posters here might agree.

At work I don’t have a keyboard with a Å key so you’ll just have to learn to live with it.

Or how about you’re all nobs? Or is that not the correct UK spelling? In reality I think the English need to learn how to spell and of course need to ignore the spelling mistakes in my posts.

I find all these posts by Norway boring. Why you need to open a new post for every though running through your head Norway? Besides, this topic is getting off topic. You see I start topic to talk about how I love American girls. What do you talk about? Not this. I think you need to read the thread started called "Newbies Primper" or something like this. You will find that you are angrying many of the posters here.
