My weaknesses are English (Liverpudlian to be exact – damn you high school crush), Irish and Scottish. Honorable mentions are Italian, French and German in no particular order.
I was walking to my hair appointment yesterday and went by a man talking in with an Irish brogue and I found myself trying not to giggle like a school girl.
So Bees, what accents do you like hearing?

British, Australian, Irish, Scottish
The first two make a man sound smooth and debonair
The second two make a man sound rugged and manly
In my opinion…

@Miss Circe: No Scotsman is safe with me in earshot…and because of my Southern roots, I’m a sucker for that lazy Southern Drawl.

English, Irish, French, Italian – in that order. 🙂

@Nona99: Southern roots, do tell?
I probably have a Southern accent to a certain extent even though I’ve traveled a lot and lived all over. But my Mom was Southern and my Dad is from New York; I’m somewhere in between. My husband has a sexy Southern drawl (not overly, just a touch). 😉

Southern. FI has one that he has to suppress for work, so it comes out when he comes home and has a beer. It just makes a girl feel all squishy on the inside.

@Sunfire: My Grammy was a Georgia peach, my mother, although raised in Chicago has that gentility and grace that ONLY Southern women possess and my father was raised here in the mountains among the accent-bereft Coloradoans….BUT, I’m certainly not immune to the slow honey drip of a Southern man telling me I’m just the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen….then Mr. 99 comes along and wallops him, or buys him a drink…or whatever the hell happens….my life is weird, save me from it?

Any accent at all. Especially Aussie. Yummo.

I’m awfully partial to Southern. I just wish I could get away with calling everyone “y’all” but my terribly British accent gets in the way!

Australian! and Southern depending on the man.

Irish, Scottish (if it’s not too heavy because sometimes I can’t understand it), Aussie is pretty cool, N’awlins or Cajun (once again if I can understand it), Spain Spanish – a la Antonio Banderas, and last but not least New York.

Agreed about the Southern accent – it has to be a good one, there are some really terrible ones (too redneck-country, like one county in particular near where I live, so yuck, I find it hard to even understand. Think Honey-Boo-Boo, et al).
An Elvis Presley drawl, so sexy. My husband’s accent is like that. He’s a very well-educated professional engineer with a deep, sexy voice and a touch of Southern accent. Mmmmm.
@Nona99: My mother and grandmother were truly genteel Southern ladies, my MIL is another. Me, eh, I can say y’all with the best of them. When I call you and surprise you one day you’ll recognize it’s me ‘cuz of that. 🙂

@Sunfire: Yeah, if it starts to twang at all, I’m out….we have plenty of redneck bullshit up here in the high country, I don’t need any more of that…
Mr. 99 doesn’t have an accent, but he’s got a deep gravelly voice which is good, if he had an accent like Ashely Wilkes…I’d never be able to stay angry at him…and sometimes that man has got it comin!
When you call somebody’s going to be able to knock me over with a feather honey, because that’s going to be a pretty amazing day!
