Has anyone here met & moved out of the US to be with the person they loved? Seems like if you want to meet a brit then you move to the UK for a while and see if you can meet somebody nice that way.
There are all sorts on here and I would imagine that the same would be said for gents across the pond.
I actually try very hard never to think of someone else as "pathetic." I feel as though the god of patheticness (I know it's not an official word) will come down and visit it's vengeance upon me, if I did.
Lots of people get it into their heads that this or that nationality is naturally superior or more desirable.
I don't see why one should care what their nationality is IF you feel a connection, and are able to spend time with them to develop a relationship. Of course, you also have to remain cognizant of the fact that some people will use you for their own purposes in regard to immigration. All Australians are bronzed, blonde and at the beach. We are welfare heaven and we have mostly a good climate and a free way of life. I'd rather do what I did-- traveled, and got my own life situated in a different country first (twice, in two different countries), and then considered finding love.
I have never heard of this trend of Americans looking for people from the UK? All the people I know are pretty happy with American girls. but try some second tier size city...will be easier to get around and get to know. If someone wanted to meet me due to the fact that I now live in the USA, I'd question their motives.
I can't help thinking they've got a very stereotypical view of life in Britain and it's inhabitants! Why in the heck would it be pathetic to get involved with people not in our own country? If he is willing to fly to meet me or send me a ticket to meet him then I'd entertain it. But the more we travel the globe the less we adhere to those generalisations.jl503Actually I had never heard of that either. I think mostly it is people who want to escape for some reason and want residency elsewhere or the grass is greener syndrome.
I would say that is a rather pathetic way of thinking. I've always said I would like my kids to have British accents. It's not like I'm LOOKING for it but sure I'm open to relocating. I was in Lebanon for five months and we considered moving there and I'd have had no problem with it but in the end we opted not to relocate. so everyone has to make their own decision as to whether or not it is worth pursuing. I can understand people wanting to come to Australia.
Come to think of it a guy I went to high school with found his wife like that. but it really is going to depend on the reasons involved for the search. I ended it as it was just too too much, too much time apart, too much travelling. Many Americans are quite myopic when then they consider career, education, relationships, etc. I wouldn't recommend flying to the UK just to meet someone on POF or whatever. They are looking to relocate after being retired from the forces and want residency in Australia and to start a new life as our economy is much more healthy. I had a partner who was American and we would go back and forth from US to Australia and you will do anything for love. What, you saw "Remains of the Day" and can't get it out of your head?
He is a bit robust and she was is a healthy way as well, they chatted back and forth, flew back and forth and now she is a brittish expat living in Tennessee. I used to chat with a few but I was told they were mostly scammers and to be wary. For awhile I think I must have been on some list in France because I was being deluged with e-mails from french women. Hi (I posted this in another forum so, sorry if you read it already): I read your posts (all of you here) & I am in agreement with some of you.
