London has always been a city in the imagination of love and dating because the English has such a rich literary tradition from Shakespeare to John Donne. That being said you have to evaluate if reality matches the dream when it comes to the capital city of the UK. Remember when the writers were writing it was a different population and set of values.  It was called the “swinging city” for a reason, because it was the hub of the cultural revolution in the 1960s and these values have been transmitted and amplified by the next generations of women. This post contains specific locations to find domestic traditional women of London. Good hunting and keep a stiff upper lip until you do.

My brother is English as his family and live in downtown London and I am European American so I can write with some authority about dating in “Cockaigne” or “The Smoke”.

Girls of London – the second biggest city in Europe

In the whole city of London, a city of over ten million people there are  nice gals for love, dating and marriage, yet there are a lot of career women and feminist leaning values females, cloaked in the smartest London fashion and a cute English accent, so watch your step lad.

The melting pot of Londinium started before the Romans and will continue unless the British Isles sinks from global warming. Pics, Jutes, Latins, Anglos, Saxon, French, Normans they all mixed into the population and now we have a new wave of immigrants. So when searching London for women know what culture you want as each as a different value set that may or may not correlate to your world view.

London girls

Generally, London girls are not my style and are in my opinion not the best for love. Not that is anything wrong with the English, there is not, it is the whole cosmopolitan overwhelming city combined with a snobbish culture and emphasis on materialism.  If you’re in London you are there to make money. I mean would you not rather have a little cottage and an English garden in Dover than a small flat in Knightsbridge and pay a fortune. The metro dwellers of the London are there for money, period. Culture and beauty can be found anywhere. Some are there for marriage to obtain an EU visa. I can not recommend that, only the romantic aspects.

However, they might be for you,  just not for me, read on and find out why and what might be a better solution if you like the idea of a traditional marriage.

Is a London woman’s accent attractive?

You may say ah yes but Mark, London girls have great accents.  One of my friends married a girl from London and he loved her accent.  Three years later it was one the things that annoyed him the most about her.  They are not together today by the way. She left him by the way.  Do not go for  London girls if you think their accents make them sensual.

London girls are not from Jane Austen

I am a true romantic and Jane Austen one of my favorite writers. I have imaged London ladies like form a Romantic English novel.  Wrong. If you have this vision of London girls, you will be burned. Only in Eastern Europe are women like from a Jane Austen story. That is, loving princesses who put love, about all things. Do not romanticize in any way about London girls, if you do, despite first impressions, some will chew you up and spit you out in many cases. I know too many romantic idealistic guys go into relationships and find out that their gal is no Jane Austen English woman.

Love is about you and that other person, nothing else, not career, style, looks adventure, travel, money, etc.  London gals are in London for a reason.  Often times their reason is economic and not for love.  Often, London females are in London because they are willing to sacrifice something to get something else, and that something else is not, humbling themselves to be a man’s wife.

Londoners attitude

I  have meet scores of UK women that have a slight attitude. I am a shy, sweet guy and many wanted to just put me down.   I like people who build people up not knock people down and judge.  At one point or another in your relationship a lady from the UK she might want to flex her western girl power and your life will be very hard from then on, if you do not choose the right one.  I have even meet Polish girls who are sweet and kind and when they return from London are corrupted by arrogance.

An alternative to English females working for money

Why destroy your life with dating London professional girl? They will be just another iteration on cosmo girls. Women and money do not mix when you are talking about true love.  Why not move or go to Eastern Europe and meet a nice girl of your dreams. A girl whose happiness is to be your love and for you to love in return with equal or greater measure.  Nothing else.  Because in life there is nothing greater that this. Money is not entered into the equation as much.

London is an international city and at one time the Brits actually thought it to be the center of the world. Can you imagine? Today it is more a business center for Europe and a Mecca for the former commonwealth nation populations who want to make more money. Consequently there are many foreign nationals from India and Pakistan as well as a mix of Eastern European women from Poland for example. So when you are speaking of London girls you are really talking about a multicultural city with different avenues to pursue in terms of dating.

All women are equally good yet there are certain cultural attitudes that you might find more congruent with your ideals for finding a mate. I mean you can not convince me that some humble Pakistani Indian bride has the same attitude towards domestic life as a feminist or beer drinking London girl or a Kiwi girl in the UK with an attitude from who knows where.

You can jump up and down if you want but lets be honest genetically we are all Hominidae of equal abilities but cultures in the world vary greatly.

My recommendation when looking for a girl in London is know what you are looking for. If you are looking for a girl from a Jane Austen novel, got for Polish girl, not a native Londoner.

There are many skets and lengs (London slang for girls) but not all desirable even if wrapped in fashion of the day walking in front of the House of Parliament or the Thames river. Skip the University of Oxford for meeting women. Many nice English girls, just too western for me. If you like Western girls the go for it. One of my friends married a British girl while he was in the military and met her in London. He is not happy.

  • Neasden Hindu communities in London
  • For christian Indians in London for to the Wembley church area, which actually has service in Gukarati.
  • Sikhs in Southall London and the are wealthier than the average Londoner.
  • Southall and Tooting where the Indian communities are. Go to Redbridge, Waltham Forest and Newham to meet a Pakistani girl in London.
  • Russians in London – There are many garden variety Russian girls in the UK and this is why London is sometimes refereed to as Moscow-on-the-Thames and Londongrad.
  • Polish girls in the UK you will find Polish girls in England but really in high level professional positions, only student girls working pubs as barmaids.

So my conclusion is you can find love in London, just focus on the women who are not there for money or who have not departed from their traditional values and family over money and career.
