  • Language is for communication. As long as we can communicate and understand each other, that's all that matters. She doesn't need to have perfect English. It doesn't even have to be close to perfect. As long as she can form enough words so I understand her, that's fine.

    Accents are not a negative. They can be very attractive and sexy.

    By the way, your written English is fine. If you said you were a native speaker, I'd believe it. It's actually better than many native speakers.

  • No, it wouldn't bother me. I have an accent in the other languages I speak. I'd also make an effort to speak her language if it's one of those I know.

    If a suy likes you, he won't let something like that bother him, even if it normally would if others do it.

  • Psycologically genetical diffrance is hot, thus we are attracted to the "exotic". It is more likely to help you then harm you. Most guys like any chanse do do something for you, so letting him help you if you struggle a lot (you didn't specify) is a great way to make him feel like he is good at something, and a good oppertunity to bond. I believe in you!

  • At times I have to have her repeat herself if I don't fully understand her, but I grew up among, and dated, a larghely Asian immigrant population, so no problem. In fact, I always remember her English was and is better than my Mandarin or Korean or Vietnamese.

  • If she understands English completely and had trouble annunciating words correctly it wouldn't be that hard to have a conversation so it wouldn't bother me. I'd probably try to learn her first language just for fun though.

  • I'm fine with SOME accents. Others just annoy me.

    I'm good if they understand English and stuff. One gal I hung out with was constantly asking me what words mean. That was a chore.

  • No big deal! You have more to offer than good English speaking skills, but somepeople may be frustrated with the communication barrier. Just move on until you find someone who can handle it.

  • It has not bothered me.
    Fine points of communication during the mating dance can become a problem, but I did not find that to be a big problem.

  • It would if that were the only language she knew. If not, that would make her far more appealing.

  • No, I don't think so. Only if we couldn't communicate with each other would it be an issue.

  • I think personally it could be cute but it might bring up some problems in a relationship but I would be happy with someone who is learning English

  • A) I think accents are incredibly attractive. I'm not sure why though.
    B) Gives us something fun to talk about during the date, I guess.
    C) There does have to be SOME communication. I've dated women who weren't great English-speakers before. The Arabic/French-speaking women I could still communicate with well, because I speak Arabic and French. The Spanish-speaking woman I couldn't communicate with as well, so nothing came of it after the first date, but it was still a fun time. She spoke a little English, I spoke a little Spanish. The Greek-speaking woman was no fun, as neither of us could talk to each other really. She knew English phrases and had a decent vocabulary, if bad grammar, but we couldn't talk about anything with any depth.

  • No, as long as we're able to communicate and she can function in society.

  • As long as your accent is not too thick, I don't think that would pose a problem.
