I’m from the Southern US- Alabama, to be exact- so I hear Southern accents all day, every day. I don’t mind them, but I have mastered the art of concealing my accent when speaking to anyone, because I don’t like the way I sound with it (however, if I slip up and am not paying much attention, I have a really heavy Southern accent, drawl and all, y’all.)
Because I work in patient accounts and deal with the general public all day, and because we are within 30 miles of two colleges, I hear accents from around the US/world on a daily basis.
My new favorite accent is the Wisconsin accent. A guy came in today from Wisconsin and I almost died- his voice! I swear, my heart stopped for a second. 😉 Just kidding of course (and I’m very happily married), but his accent was just incredible!!
So, ladies (and possibly a gentleman or two) ,what accent do you adore?

French. Makes my knees go weak!
The MD at work is French, and absolutely gorgeous, and I honestly have a hard time holding a conversation with him without blushing!
