Would it put you off? I'm just generally wondering.

I'm not going to name them because that would just be asking for problems :yep: but there are some accents which I really can't stand so I would just walk away, even if I liked a guy and he liked me, because I couldn't stand hearing him speak.

Anyone else like this?

Accents don't really put me off - apart from overly over the top posh southern women accents.

I'm Bristolian, but I can't stand the Bristolian accent. Fortunately mine's Welsh. :p:

Edit: Though saying that, I currently have a mad crush on a man with a genuine farmer accent, so I suppose I have managed to overcome that obstacle for the sake of his lovely face.

OK...Not wishing to cause offence (I know it will) but I really don't like the Birmingham accent. It just doesn't sound great to listen to. And i'm sure some people don't like my accent, I can deal with that.

But...three guesses as to where my boyfriend is from...

And I don't even register his accent anymore, he's just this great guy that I'm so lucky to have in my life (i know, i'm even making myself feel sick, but it's true).

Not long after meeting at uni last year he asked me out, and I resisted for a while - not because of the accent, but because we didn't really "click". But after a while I sort of went with it and now, I hate the thought of being without him.

Point being - you can be adamant about something like accent but if you meet the right person, you will stop caring.

Depends, if I really liked the guy then I guess I could get over his accent.

There aren't really accents that I hate. I don't think. There are lots that I love though.

What about someone who is European but has a vaguely American accent? Good, bad?

The only accent that puts me off slightly is the same as my own- posh southern accent. I like it on me though.

You may as well commit suicide, if you're going to walk away from people because of your intolerance of their accent, you really will fail at any sort of job involving human interaction. Move to a cave & get wireless internet, set up an on-line business.

As a Scot, i must say that most English accents get on my tits. Cockney and Geordie are the worst offenders, with only Scouse and Ultra-Posho getting pass marks. South african and Northern Irish are awesome though.

Accents as such don't bother me, but I don't really like any accents that are incredibly strong or regional. I think I like accents out of context as well, when I hear an accent all the time, any previous preference I had for it soon gets rubbed off. That doesn't mean I don't like it anymore, I just become indifferent.
