Education in the UK goes far beyond school subjects and grades. While Fancier Than Americans, British Men are Less Prissy You want a man's man wrapped up in luxury? British men aren't afraid to get a little knocked up."While American men are playing dress-up with big head guards and shoulder pads for their next football game, British guys are playing rugby without any protection. so we hear (from Ben, of course)."The big reason why American women should date British men is that we really love American women.That’s right, the accent adoration is a two-way street.One particular Brit has a fondness for Texan girls.
