: : : a phrase alledgedly used by aliens to describe the virtue of earth girls. It is part of a family of expressions like the description of US Army lads in England during WWII "overpaid, oversexed, and over here".
: : : Why is it that the girls from far away look so very tasty.... is it the grass is greener syndrome?
: : It's not that the girls "from away" are "easy." It is that it is easier for a man to abandon moral restraints when pursuing women who don't remind him of his mother and sisters and the girl-next-door.
: It's equally true that having a non-native accent apparently adds to a man's allure - the number of times I have been told in the USA that I'm just like Rupert Everett is ridiculous. Admittedly we're fractionally similar in coloration and diction, but he's apparently about 3 inches taller than me and we don't share the same gender preferences.
And you always reminded me of Rhett Butler...
