I get a surprising amount of emails from women - mainly American and Canadian - about dating Scottish men: e.g. North American dude; what does it mean when a Scottish guy asks them out for a drink with all his friends and so on and so forth.

Most of the time I respond because they're just looking for advice/ perspective and as everyone knows, I have publicly lamented about dating in this country so I am more than happy to pass on what I have learned, if anything.

However, I still think there is some hang over from the "olden times" when it was generally encouraged for men to be the "strong and stoic" type.

Clearly I don't approve of such encouragement because I think it's important to remember that men are a lot more complicated and dare I say it, delicate than we let them be.

Firstly, I won't question why it is a Scottish man in particular that you want to date because hey, I get it: you saw Gerard Butler in a film once and dug his accent and assume that all Scottish men are that rugged and handsome.

[: I saw Gerard Butler walking down Byres Road a couple weekends ago with this current-model girlfriend, and although my heart was a flutter at the idea of Gerard Butler, in reality it was a bit of a let down as he looked pretty hung-over].

For example, it's not really polite to directly ask someone what they do for a living.

Sure, that is the second thing we ask each other in North America, right after "What's your name? So instead, you need to find these sort of details out in a roundabout way.

I worked in the South of France for awhile before going to Ireland, where I worked as a Nanny, but I have now returned to Scotland where I went to college and did a course on beauty th Thanks for taking the time to have a wee peek. I think I'm a nice person :-) well i hope i am. They are all grown now and have left the nest so now it is my turn to figure out th I am a hungarian woman. I think I am kind,calm,honest,friendly and helpful.Obviously if you're a patron at a busy pub in the UK, you can't wave your hands or make a point of being FORTH RIGHT and saying that you're next; SORRY, that's just the rules, Yanks.What can I say, they like rigid social codes over here.You will need to carry out a careful conversation and only when it is hinted at, may you ask someone what they do or openly try to guess.

The same can be said about asking someone if they're single/ married.

Look, we'll probably never even come close to what our Scottish cousins can partake in, booze wise, but you might as well start trying: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right? In Canada, we usually go to other people's houses to get shit-faced but over here, people go to a pub in order to pay twice as much to shout over loud music.
