French men compliment women on their beauty.

English men compliment women on their intelligence.

Unfortunately French and English women are exactly the same which is why French men are more successful in love.

Mind you, we get our fair share of American women.

Thanks to Paul and Ellie for inspiring this thought.



  1. “I’m not one to regularly apportion blame…”

    Of course, you’re not, dear boy. Of course, you’re not.

    I almost asked a clarifying question about your original post here and then (ha!) thought better of it!

  2. Yes, I married one, ergo they exist!

    Oh, that is so tempting. But as you are right up their near the top of my extremely long list of “Women that I’m scared of,” (just under Jane) I shall do the sensible thing for once in my life, and say nothing.

  3. Crikey, I didn’t know you were scared of me! It’s Nigel you ought to be scared of not me. He can kill with his bare hands, you know. And he’s a saint. Honestly.
    Why are you scared of me? I really don’t understand.

  4. Tracie, that works both ways. I’d find a woman with a nice English accent hot, even if she were just reading a grocery list 😉

  5. I beg to differ, oh Mad One. I don’t find shallow, selfish, mean-spirited, or bigoted people attractive at all. e.g. Carrie Prejean of Miss California fame.

  6. Fair comment, David. But I wouldn’t personally exclude the shallow. Shallow can be fun – you just wouldn’t want to spend a lifetime with shallow.
