Culture, Accents and Attraction

The word ATTRACTION is often used when referring to prospective dates. Let’s examine what it means to be attracted to a person. 

According to Webster, attraction is defined as the following. 
1. The act, process or power of attracting 
2. Personal charm 
3. The action or power of drawing forth a response; an attractive quality 
4. Something that attracts or is intended to attract people by appealing to their desires and tastes 

 Attraction, often thought of as chemistry, is really the spark that inspires you to want to find out more about a person. 

Of course, after you get past the initial draw, there has to be some substance to the person for the relationship to morph into something meaningful. 

However, humans are a very visual species and most make quick decisions (although not always accurate) about a person upon a first viewing. 

There are lots of variables that can act as a catalyst for an initial attraction, including a person’s height, hair, personality, lifestyle, sense of humor or even that sexy foreign accent that indicates a cultural heritage different than your own. 

I was just introduced to a relatively new and free online dating site that caters to those who find people from different cultures captivating. If this interests you, visit the site at says that exploring a relationship with someone who is from another country can be very attractive. Providing a sense of intrigue, it beckons you to discover your differences as well as your similarities. Be it an Aussie, Brit or an Irishman, some people just seem to be uncontrollably drawn to a foreign accent that makes them weak in the knees. 

The site features an international search engine that allows you to locate people from other countries that reside in your current city, as well as connect with those from the U.S. 

If you are looking for love, this is just one more option available to you.
