Was there ever any doubt, y’all? In a survey of 2,000 men and women, dating site Cupid.com found that Southern accents are the most attractive in the country. In other news, the sky is blue, snow is cold, and dessert is delicious.
Winning a landslide 36.5 percent of the vote, the South’s syrupy drawl beat out second-place New York (at 16.5 percent) by more than double. To my delight (and, honestly, surprise), my home state of New Jersey – where we drink tap warder and walk our dawgs – tied for fifth with the Canadian accent.
The dubious distinction of least sexy accent belongs to the Mid-Atlantic region. We promise it’s nothing personal, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
