    No, accents wouldn't put me off, I don't have silly problems like this. I'm not capable of such pettiness :daydreaming:

    Cheryl Cole is a great example of a good-looking girl but a terrible accent.

    Accents I dislike:

    North Dublin.
    South Armagh.
    Birmingham.
    Some American accents.

    There are some awful accents in Britain alone, tbh, with some foreign ones pretty bad too but I guess at least [for the most part] they can speak another language too which is pretty cool. I'd like to think it wouldn't be enough to put me off someone if I liked him in every other way, but you can't be sure until you're in that situation. =P I guess if it were THAT bad, I wouldn't have fallen for him in the first place, ahaha.

    Yeah. Generally, if they don't have a RP accent, or something hot and foreign, I'm not interested :blush:
    Thank God my boyfriend has the perfect accent, then :awesome:

    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?
    I'm sure I'd be able to overlook his accent if I liked him... But bad accents are such an obstruction that I would never fancy the guy in the first place...

    I'm from Manchester but nobody round here actually sounds like they're from 'Shameless'. I think I sound a bit northern but not Manc.

    I find most accents oddly endearing, especially Glaswegian and Yorkshire (makes me chuckle). So long as it's not scratchy, too slow or too fast it's all good.

    Strong Indian accent is obviously annoying. Why don't we talk about the best accents! Such as French, Persian (Iranian) :yep:

    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.
    Interesting. How would I get wireless if I live in a cave? I doubt there would be signal, plus how could I set up a business if I've commited suicide? I can interact with people when I hate their accents, but I wouldn't marry them.

    To everyone else, yep scouse and brummy are the main ones. Killers, especially brummy, eergh. Sorry brummies :o:
