...(to women) if you have a working class accent?

But I do sound far more charming with my vevlety upper class tones.

You get non-charming wankers speaking in any accent whatsoever. It's not the accent so much as the content of their conversation.

Which obviously accounts for your endless string of romantic and sexual liaisons, veering gently from one relationship to the next with nary a bad word said about you.

 

Right, the first thing I knew as soon as I posted this thread was that some tede would shortly respond with “there’s no such thing as a working class accent”.

Yes there obviously is. A broad geordie accent is working class. No middle class people from the NE speak like Gaza. No middle class people from London speaks Gor Blimey docker cockney.

If you don’t, or claim not to, know what a working class accent is then kindly work it out before posting further on this thread. It’s not v difficult.

All women say „it is content not delivery“ which is a lie

esp in the uk where a posh accent is more than half the rent

Who said there isn't a working class accent? Did I miss a post?

Well, to our ears you just have a German accent, DD, so this doesn't really apply to you :p

And it is content. Except maybe when it's a thick Black Country or Brummie drawl. I would struggle, then.

The genesis of this thread was that I was standing next to a couple with cockney accents today and the bloke said to the girl something like “Cor, you look gawjus today doll, your hair really glows in the sunshine”. And prosaic as it looks written down, it sounded, and was received as, really charming and I thought: you just cannot pull that off if you speak newsreader RP like you’ve got a sock in your mouth, as per the average citytede.

Stupid boy. Accent has nothing to do with anything. Its what you actually say.

Definitely content.

Less about the conversation though, more about the content of your bank account.

Is one of the weirder more autisticly bizzare questions asked on rof. 

 

PS the answer is no. 

HTH

 

A bloke with an RP accent wouldn't say exactly that phrase would he 

but it could be equally charming (or risible) of he said something equally ostensibly charmless, depending on delivery, confidence and hotness 

the accent is very little to do with it 

No your average citytede would be expected to say it properly and say "my dear you look quite ravishing today and I love the way sun radiates through your flowing locks".

It’s a good job we have someone as socially skilled and doubtless successful on the dating scene as your good self, wibbs, to break this all down for us.

Saillaw has demonstrated exactly what I mean!

"my dear you look quite ravishing today and I love the way sun radiates through your flowing locks".

Christ. Please tell me you don't talk this way, Sails.

I reckon Sailo is easily the biggest playa on the thread, so I'd listen to whatever he says tbf.

weird lawyers that choose to spend all day talking to weird lawyers on the web to avoid talking to real people bad a pulling? 

NO WAY!

 

Persuading 100 women to shag you once is not as good evidence of charm (or skill) as persuading one woman to shag you 100 times.  

 

This should be completely obvious 

Missing that logic a bit tbh Linda.  You said pulling, not sustaining a relationship.

Yes he doesn't strike me as good at that either tbf 

Hook up sites are easy everyone is DTF as the kids say 

No idea what DTF means, heh, olllld!

Im pretty reasonable at pulling, even I am quite baffled as to how.  All my wives have been leagues ahead of me in looks, which is why I wifed them up, albeit always too soon.  

I do ok on short-medium term stuff, it’s the long term (5+ years) bit which eludes me.  So I’m not sure that is about charm et al because after a while it seems to me that charm takes a second place to empathy, emotional support, joint interests, that sort of thing.  So in terms of maintaining a relationship, while charm does of course have its place, it becomes fairly secondary to those other more mundane day to day elements.

Hello nice to meet you, welcome to the weird and fucked up world of 2019 where people hook up to fuck, use the internet to arrange dates with freaks or go to rof drinks to have nasty sex and cry about it on here later. 

Charm has little to do with it. 

No one meets people, is charming, goes on a date and then bumps uglies on date 3. 

hth

 

Maybe not on date 3 but I met my girlfriend in a pub garden, not on tinternet.

Yes but you live in your own little word in Cornwall, which is sort of the same as being from the 80's. 

 

No. 

 

The content and presentation will just be very different.

 

The perception of charm is the product of a complex set of cultural indicators.

 

A pre-requisite is probably being physically attractive.

 

For instance 'your hair really glows in the sunshine' from a cockney geezer is a touching piece of observation by a man one might not think would notice.

From a posho it would probably come across as repressed homosexuality.

Gaza?  You posh twonk.

Which nobody did. 

Well technically that is true Stix, but in laz world your normal human rules do not apply

Well Dusty pointed it out and he ignored her, so I thought I’d give him a second chance to say “oops, sorry, I got that totally wrong”...

Once again you fundamentally misunderstand the nature of the laz

post-ROFdrinks nastysex is awesome. In concept anyway.

What a strange thread, as if there's some sort of universality where charm is concerned. 

That said, Welsh, soft Scottish and vaguely comprehensible Geordie accents are all hornsome.

As someone with a fairly bland middle-class accent, nobody has ever complimented me on it (if we discount Yanks, which just seems sensible).

Dusty if I ever came out with something like the phrase I posted above I'd either (a) gag because it was so sickly sweet; and/or (b) probably start laughing half way through as I couldn't say something that ridiculous seriously.

My compliments get about as far as "you're looking alright this evening".

I am well aware it is typical of Laz, and I haven't misunderstood at all.  Do you refrain from highlighting his career bollocks just because you know it's Laz?  

the guy who teaches the boxing class at my gym says things to me like: "this ain't boxercise, love" and teases me in a very working class accent and I love it.  It's so sexy and he has an incredibly sexy body.  It's swoonsome.

 

I have a tedious Nice Guy TM admirer who compliments me in a creepy nice guy RP accent sort of way and it makes me cringe and want to puke.

If you're going to play Lady Chatterley, Judo, you're going to have to get with the agenda re: alan.

nothing gets between me and my bottom other than perhaps 3 trillion AUM

So JC we have now ascertained that the principle is agreed.

Now it is simply a matter of negotiation over price.

"have a tedious Nice Guy TM admirer who compliments me in a creepy nice guy RP accent sort of way and it makes me cringe and want to puke."

 

this is a roffer right?

I have spoken to Judo on the phone.  I put on my posh phone voice.  I change voice and accent according to audience.  i realise that is a bit sociopathy...

Wang, I must say that you do have a very lovely voice.  You should deffo do sex chat lines if the coffers ever fall short.

What an utterly dreadful thought. 

'Tell me what you're doing right now'

'I was just thinking of that time my mate Dave accidentally got his knob caught in a hand grenade whilst casually tucking into the left winger in the Woking ladies rugby team.'

u baint putting anything in the woking ladies xv old sun.

You could always regurgitate the splinter in the gonad story.
