    Sure, why not?

    I don't think I sound Scouse but most people from outside Liverpool seem to think that I do. I've lived in London for about two years now and people always comment on my accent.
    Same with me. I'm from Wirral and I've often had local people tell me that I sound "posh" (something I actually used to get stick for as a teenager) but people outside the area think I sound scouse.

    I've lived in liverpool for two years and people think I talk like I'm a pubber from the east end who bricklays. I don't even have a east london accent its a mixture of ghetto and slightly posh depending on who I'm with and how I feel like.
    I'm sure that some Southerners think that I'm stupid/uneducated because I don't have a neutral accent. Most people don't say anything but a guy at uni once asked me if I had ever tried to change my accent, which was quite rude.

    A Scouse accent on a lady is a very nice thing indeed. Mmm... Supposing I was buying a new car off-of some Scouse gent, NO-HO-WAY mate. No way. (Only partially serious).

    Absolutely not. Well-spoken English is an absolute must as far as I am concerned. Call me prejudiced if you like, I don't care.

    Nah.

    Not a fan of harsh accents.

    If Cheryl Cole stopped speaking, I could possibly see why people found her attractive.

    You clearly do, otherwise you wouldn't have felt the need to post anonymously.

    Do people not realise that there are actually quite a few different variations in the scouse accent? I'm from Liverpool and mostly the accent sounds friendly, attractive, not so harsh, just a lovely northern twang.. but there are some people who I swear put it on to sound hard in front of their mates.. that kind of scouse accent pisses me off! I wouldn't date then because of the kind of person they are, more than what they sound like!

    Yeah I knew quite a few people like that when I was younger and they made out it was how they actually spoke, funny enough their accents softend a lot in their early 20s...

    You make a very good point. Allow me to correct myself; I don't care if people know that I as a real person wouldn't date someone with a scouse accent, but I do care about my lovely little reputation gems on TSR and since the people online aren't going to listen to or agree with my explanation for why I have this preference before they click the thumbs down button, I thought I'd better protect myself by posting anonymous so that the OP could have my opinion without me risking my rep.

    Me thinks you spend far too much time on here, pandabird.

    Remember, if you don't pass your SATs your parents will be most displeased

    Jonty,

    I'm a proud scouse woman, and I'd just like to say thank you for everything you wrote there. I hate that scousers are still stereotyped..It fumes me.
    Liverpudlians are one of the friendliest, most genuine in the population. (I've travelled but I always love coming home)

    I'm from Litherland in Liverpool, so my accent isn't as hard as other areas. But I'm defo a proud scouse girl, who will not take what these narrow minded people think to heart.. each to their own. **** em!
