So seriously, why on earth do you call your version of football, football?Maybe I’ve been hiding in a ditch my whole life, but the last time I checked, your version of the sport ‘football’ predominantly involved using your HANDS to maneuver the ball around – NOT YOUR FEET. Needless to say with the excessive use of capitals in that previous paragraph, I’m pretty passionate about this subject – like any other stereotypical Brit.If you’ve planning on bagging a British guy, chances are you will come across this word a thousand times per day, so be prepared to invest in some very sophisticated ear plugs. if he tells you he’s “off to see his ‘mates’ tonight”, rest assured he’s not cheating on you! The Difference between American Football and Rugby! The differences between Rugby and American Football are substantial.Back to American Football again, it’s really bugging me. Yes, the object of the game is to skillfully crush another man’s skull beneath your feet as your tactfully move the ball to the desired destination, but take notice of the differences in protective clothing worn by our athletes.The term ‘mate’ is commonly used to describe a close friend or somebody we like to hang out with.‘Yeah I’m just going out with my mates tonight’ ‘It’s cool, we’re just mates’ We say it all the time, perhaps way too much.I am an american woman and interested in a man from England.

This is something a French guy would not do, not even to his worst enemy. They didn't understand why I was a lot less nice to them the day after. Anyway: lesson learned - I don't get drunk anymore. The accent All my female friends say that, whenever they hear a guy speak with a French accent, they melt. There is one thing I'd love to compare: the British and the American men, since I have lived in California for over 30 years now, and married an American.

On the other hand, my eldest son is very smooth with girls and always has been.
