I'm not attracted to posh accents, but I am put off by really common accents, girls who don't speak properly. I myself am far from posh, in fact I can't stand snobs, but I do find girls who are classy really appealing.
This is a bit subjective I think. I have a really broad northern accent to southern people but for up here I'm well spoken & I think I pronounce words right, I always pronounce every letter but Southern people think I'm extremely northern. And classiness doesn't always depend on someone's accent either :/
Also whilst I'm on this rant, I hate how people think people who don't have a neutral accent are thick. I get spoken to like an idiot when I'm even in a shop in London. Argh!

Nah, that's not what I mean. I know girls with strong northern accents, it doesn't put me off as long as they speak properly. Accents are something that everyone in life comes across, the fact that I pronounce the word "bath" as barth whereas you probably say bath doesn't bother me. I just find it really off-putting when people genuinely don't know how to speak properly, I'm not a snob by any means, but lacking the ability to speak correctly implies stupidity and ignorance, and those are traits that I do not find attractive.

There's a difference between having an accent, using slang etc.; and not being well spoken.

It's not really about class per se; it's just liking softly spoken girls with received pronunciation. I guess they typically tend to come from classy backgrounds but it's not necessarily the case ...

I am not gay but if I was lesbian I think I would be in love with Emma Watson - I saw her on Letterman and she was so precisely spoken and so charming and beautiful - lucky thing. I wish I was her.

I've been teased for having a posh accent for years. Hi there. I've got a thing for guys with posh English accents (not like "Made in Chelsea", more like...Tom Felton's voice. :lol: I swear that's the last time I'll mention him in a post) but Irish and Welsh ones are also :coma:

According to some of my friends, I have a "posh" accent. But then, compared to them, I suppose I do. I have a thing about dropping 't's out of words, it annoys me no end for some reason. That's probably to do with the fact that my parents would go "waTer! not waw'uh!" when I was younger, so now I feel like doing the same when people do that ):<

Dropping "t"s is sometimes posh - they call it "fake Estuary". There was a definite trend for that a few years ago but I think it's coming full circle again back to the 60s right now and posh means posh, as in RP.

hahaaaa that's exactly the same as my parents! But I have retained my northern accent in doing so somehow :P, but I'm apparently really posh for County Durham haha. I still say Coke like most southerners say cork, but that's how you're supposed to say it x

Hello. :sexface:


I have a posh accent even though I'm not posh at all, not sure how that happened tbh.
I'm the same. It's a mystery...

I'm sorry, but if you mean Melodie from the Apprentice then no.. She's the best looking, but her voice screams out annoying with a slight bit of arrogance and dopeyness

I love girls who are well spoken and have that posh accent that goes along with it. Luckily enough, I went to visit a friend at his University down in Bristol and I think I must of been one of the few &quot;common&quot; people there lol. Anyway, my friend isn't posh but he has wealthy parents, therefore he gets the best of everything. He introduced me to a few of his friends, including a few females, and their accents were amazing. I loved how they spoke so softly and well mannered. It was so refreshing to hear, unlike the type of people you get in London and the south east of England.
I agree. I doesn't help that I come from the toff-infested climbs of North Oxford and that I went to an expensive private school (on a scholarship, I might add; my parents aren't especially wealthy) and so my upbringing and the innate snobbery that permeates Oxford's culture as a city has kind of conditioned me to have a thing for well-spoken, upper-middle class girls. I try very hard not to judge people by the way they speak, though...

Yah. Absolutelah :yep: I moved 280 miles away from London for this very reason (amongst many others). Couldn't take listening to anymore people who spoke like Tulisa and Fazer
yeah, because all Londoners talk like that

I come from Camberley, a posh part of Surrey, which is a posh part of the south-east/the country in general, or so I've been told. My mum, despite not being born in the UK, is very well-spoken, and that, together with brains, has given me quite a posh accent. Unfortunately, years of downward convergance (subtly and subconsciously altering my accent in accordance with the people I'm with, for those who don't study English Language) has left me with a little bit of work to do before I'm totally RP. And the fact that I have a father who says "alright mate" and "innit". :facepalm:

I'll get there.
