People love Southern accents

Posted on November 5, 2013 

I've always complained about American actors who cannot do accents. But a British or Australian actors can do American accents.

Even Julia Roberts, who is from Smyrna, can't do a Southern accent.

So imagine my surprise when I got an email that says that the Southern accent is the most attractive in North America.

Dating site Cupid.com came up with this survey, so you should take it with a grain of salt.

So, first place goes to Southern accent at 36.5 percent, second is New York at 16.5 percent, third is Western at 13 percent, fourth is New England at 10.5 percent, fifth is New Jersey at 7 percent, sixth is Canadian at 7 percent, seventh is Midwestern at 5.5 percent and eight is Mid-Atlantic at 4 percent.

It is from Cupid.com, men surveyed are the ones who loved the Southern accents.

Women liked the New York accents.

Go figure.
