We’ve been charmed by Tom Jones, made to laugh out loud by Roy Brydon and swooned at Gethin Jones, seems like Welsh men are the full package.

Whatever the reason, all over the world Welsh guys are now being seen as charming, handsome and gently romantic. If you want to date a Welsh guy, there are certain rules to follow to give you the best chance of success. Here are just a few things to bear in mind.

They love their country

In America, Canada and other European countries, it can be quite common to mone and complain about your own country, not in Wales. They are fiercely patriotic, they learn their own language in school, although almost no one else int he world speaks it. If you want to get on the good side of a Welsh man learn a little about Wales, the language, cultures and of course the rugby. This will be sure to impress.

They don’t back their emotions

It not hard to fathom what a Welsh guy is thinking as they’re famous for showing emotions. Singing is a massive part of the Welsh culture and a man belting out a ballad is nothing to be sniffed at in Wales. If you are looking for a man to share long heart to hears with that just might result in bursting into song, you might just have found the right place to look.

They can take their drink

This will sound like a stereotype and of course it isn’t true of every Welshman; but in Wales (and generally also in the rest of the UK), the pub is a frequent venue for dates, meet-ups and celebratory gatherings. Online dating hasn’t taken off in Wales as much as the rest of the UK so drinking spots are still the No.1 location to meet a Welsh man.

They do banter very well

As well as the joy of hearing the accent, talking to a Welsh guy is usually immensely enjoyable because the Welsh love a good banter session or humorous rant. The slang lends itself to lots of playfulness, so if you want to date a Welsh guy, you’d better get used to the local terminology. Which brings us to our final point…

They’re not afraid to overstep the mark

If you’re looking to land a Welsh fella, whether you’ve already met someone through friends or you’re still looking on dating sites, you’d better be able to hold your own. Having the mick taken out of you is par for the course when it comes to flirting, so if you’re a sensitive soul, it’s time to toughen up. If a Welsh guy is being a bit cheeky, it likely means you’ve made an impact so don’t be affronted – it’s a compliment!
