If you have always had a passion for meeting women of different cultures and nationalities, you may have wondered whether your fantasy date is a sexy Spanish senorita, an enchanting Thai girl, or even a sultry Ukrainian woman.  I suggest perhaps that you really must consider adding a proper British girl to the mix.

I only know a handful of British girls but after meeting a very lovely Brit named Beatrice recently I composed a list of my top 8 reasons why I think you should seriously consider dating a British girl.

First and foremost they have style.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      With world famous designers such as Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Paul Smith Brits have got a style all their own. They always dress to impress and take influence from famous fashionistas such as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and the latest royal trendsetter; Kate Middleton. 

They know how to dress whether it’s for a ball, the races, or a glamorous cocktail party, take a Brit with you and she will definitely know how to stand out from the crowd.

They’ve got class.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Having grown up with royalty all of their lives, one thing instilled in these girls from a young age is class. They are ladylike, they have good table etiquette, they are certainly well mannered and respectable. On top of this, they can speak to anyone and will cope well in any social situation. I dropped my new friend in the middle of a party of strangers and before the end of the evening she knew something about everyone there and they knew something about her.

They have great taste in music.                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                                            They come from the country that produced The Beatles,The Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Adele, and Coldplay – so it’s a given that their musical taste will be right on the money.

They have a great sense of humor.
                                                                                                                                                                        Britain is the land of Monty Python, Mr Bean, and The Office – dating English girls is not for those of us who don’t love to laugh, because you know she won’t take herself too seriously. They grew up watching comedy legends and they are known for their wit, their love of sarcasm, and their great sense of humor. If you want to have a fun time, you can be sure to have a good laugh with them.

They are very polite.
                                                                                                                                                                            Brits are generally very aware of others and incredibly polite. If she accidentally bumps into someone, she’ll say sorry without even thinking about it, it’s second nature. She will never forget to say “thank you” or “excuse me” and if forming an orderly queue (that is forming a “line” here in good old USA) was an Olympic sport, Britain would win gold! Rather than pushing past people, she will naturally stand in a line in any given situation – whether it’s at a bus stop, in a shop, or at an airport.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      These manners are something they have learned from a young age. They don’t like to “make a scene” so you’ll rarely see her complaining or showing herself up in public, she would rather stay quiet or say something very politely/indirectly yet succinctly to avoid embarrassment.

They are sweet, shy, and genuine.
                                                                                                                                                                            Brits are naturally reserved – she may not reveal everything and wear her heart on her sleeve the moment she meets you, but that’s all part of her charm. She guards her feelings like a family secret, and you can be sure that when she says something personal, she meant it. Even if it takes her a while longer to open up to you than other girls, you can be sure that if she says she likes you, it’s the real deal with a Brit. She rarely puts on an act or behaves falsely. Brits are as genuine as they come and you can trust what they say.

Britain is home to some serious beauties.
                                                                                                                                                                            The Spice Girls may have been your first crush, but it doesn’t stop there – the UK is home to Keira Knightly, Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz, Kate Beckinsale, Kate Moss, Elizabeth Hurley, and many more drop-dead gorgeous ladies. Who knows, your fantasy woman may be hiding in the UK?

Their accents.
                                                                                                                                                                            I’ve saved the best for last, I’ll admit it, I can’t resist Beatrice’s accent! Whether it’s the way she says your name,  “lovely” or “cup of tea” – I am happily entertained with all of her British idiosyncrasies. In fact I like her accent so much I want Beatrice to record a “proper” answering machine message for my iPhone.

If you are lucky, you may even learn some British slang. So if you’ve ever wondered what a girl meant when she said you were a “damp squib” or says what you just told her was, “a complete load of tosh” – everything will make sense if you date a British girl.

With style, elegance, and a cheeky sense of humor; British girls have a great deal to offer.

Does Google watch us every cyber second of the day?

Did you know when you use Gmail, Google’s email service, the company scans the content of your emails and the email addresses of your correspondents?  Google’s Gmail system also scans your incoming emails, even the ones coming from Yahoo and Hotmail.

If you feel safe because you’ve deleted emails you regretted sending, think again. Google never erases its own copies, even copies of the drafts you decided not to send – even copies of incomplete messages you didn’t save as drafts. And then there are those Google servers, which route the emails of thousands of companies that apparently don’t mind running the risk that their emails will be scanned. So whether you use Gmail itself, write to someone who uses Gmail, or, in many cases, simply email, Google’s gotcha.

Is all this tracking legal? Here is what a Google executive might say: “We are protected by our Terms of Service agreement, which in turn incorporates our Privacy Policy – legally binding contracts that are easy to access on our website.

Yes, we realize that almost no one has ever read these documents, but, hey, no one ever reads their mortgage documents or credit card contracts either, and they’re certainly valid. Our agreement states that when you use any of our products or services – even if you’re not aware you are using them – you agree to let us track you. It’s that simple.”

In other words – silly us – we give Google permission to track us simply by engaging in activities (the great “free’ email account) that allowed it to track us.

The terms of service agreement also says that the information you give the company “and those we work with” (who’s that, exactly?) can be used for almost any purpose. And the privacy policy states that Google can share your dossier with just about any individual or agency based on the company’s “good faith belief” that doing so is required by law or, incredibly, that doing so will “protect…the rights, property or safety of Google.”

What do you guys think? Are we watched every cyber second of the day?
