7 Reasons Why I Wish I Was British ...


Even though it’s such a small country, recently I have been thinking about why I wish I was British. It’s the land of James Bond, the Beatles. Harry Potter, and so many other awesome things. The list goes on and on about things that Britain has to offer. Here is my list of my top reasons why I wish I was British. Now I am off to teatime!

The Style

Fashion may be universal but one of the reasons why I wish I was British is because of their distinct fashion sense. They are known for their “thrown together” sense of style, which I am personally a huge fan of. They don’t care if their tights have a run or if their hair is disheveled, they rock it anyway. And with style icons like Alexa Chung and Kate Moss, it is no surprise this sense of style is so popular there.


The Royalty

Sure, I am all for American government, but something about having a royal family appeals to me. Whether it’s the public figure or a philanthropist, a royal family does so much good for the country. Even though we have tons of public figures and basically an already royal American family, having a legitimate royal family would really spice up American life.


The Boys

This one may come to mind easily, but British boys are so much more attractive than American boys. You may think it is their accents or sense of style, but I personally think it is because of their supposed timidness. British boys are notorious for not being very forward in their flirting, and I think that is awesome. All too many times I have been approached by an American boy, who is much too forward for my taste. The fact that British boys are more timid and reserved when approaching girls is very attractive in my eyes.



As a huge fan of tea, I have always wanted teatime to be a part of American culture. It seems as if everyone stops their day to have teatime with their friend or family. It is a social event for everyone to take some time out of their busy to enjoy the company of others. If only America would switch its love for coffee with a love for tea and teatime together, I would have one less reason why I wish I was British.


The TV Shows

As a huge Dr. Who and Sherlock fan, one of the huge reasons I wish I was British is for the amazing TV shows they have. Sure I can always watch BBC America, but it just isn’t the same. I wish I had tons of British friends who watched the same British shows as me so we could be obsessed together. Not to mention that so many American shows have been based off of British shows and for some reason I always enjoy the British version over the US adaption.

The History

Great Britain has such a rich history, it's impossible to not be captivated by it. Covering all areas from Shakespeare to the Beatles, Britain has so many interesting points as part of its history and culture. With such an incredible history that spans thousands of years, there is always tons of fun facts for you to immerse yourself in.


Britain has a long history of influential figures in the arts, literature, politics, and science. From William Shakespeare to Isaac Newton, Britain has been home to some of the most influential figures in the world.

With such a rich history, it's no wonder so many people wish they were British.


The Accent

This one should probably be a given, but those accents are so cute! American boys may sounds nice, but nothing compares to a British accent. They sound so posh and fancy that I just can't help swooning over them. Any boy with a British accent is automatically 10 times more attractive in my eyes. The biggest reason why I wish I was British is so I can have an amazing British accent. I would probably never shut up.

Someone has been watching waaaaay too many period dramas! Britain is just like America, but with a more level head, and better sense of sarcastic wit! We seem to hide our demented side better too......

I love British men,actually to be honest I love European men period,French,British,Italian,Swedish even Irish their all great

I am British lol, it's pretty awesome but we get like one impromptu week of summer and it rains way too much over here. The accent thing always confuses me though, do Americans typically mean London accents when you're talking about British accents? Cause we have such a wide variety tbh

I don't like how people say British boys like I am he uk ( Scotland ) and I go to England once a month to see my dad and to tell the truth we arnt all that great the accents are different and for me it's a very rare occasion I see a nice looking buy lol

Honeybee - you are on the mark with this - I think the author must be 15.

DOCTOR Who. You are a huge fan of DOCTOR Who. No one is a HUGE fan of Dr. Who. Just sayin....

I think this is hilarious!! Most British TV is rubbish, most guys are not shy, we don't have tea time we just like drinking tea and most of Britain wants rid of the Royal Family!!

I am British! And I can't believe you think this!! It's amazing :) I want to be in America. I think American life would be amazing!

As a south american living in london, i can say that all british have a beautiful accent! Monarchy, historically has created inequality in society so i dont really like to see them living ostentatiously while so many others are struggling. On the other hand this royalty thing brings a lot of tourists to london. She is right about the rest, my husband is english and i love, how gentle and shy he is and of course his style!!
