And pardon the crappy metaphor, but sparks flew: They did. And impossibly ridiculously, we committed on that first non-date of a date to an international, monogamous relationship. How do to theorize on whether or not she has a genuinely decent relationship with her husband, and whether or not they laugh together.
James is English, and he was working in New York where I lived at the time, and we met. He lives in a fabulous palace with untold riches and is waited on hand and foot by servants.’ And then our kid says, ‘Wow!
The American men I've dated were (coincidentally) all from DC.
And overall, I found them swaggering, careerist, and utterly terrified of commitment.
We did long-distance for a year and a half, and two months ago I moved from New York to London to be with him.

He finds this offensive, and it has become a regular part of my day, being told I ought to expand my taste. He feels I owe it to both myself and to him to invest time and affection in shows like “Peep Show,” “The IT Crowd,” and “Her and Him.” So I’m trying.
He was English, witty, slightly bumbling, and had a crooked smile. He was also part of an emerging pattern: He wasn't the first British guy I'd romantically clicked with. When I first moved to Beijing right after graduating from Brown, I never intended to fall for so many English guys.
