An American woman says that she swore off dating British men after a trip to England, where she says most of the men she encountered were short, had bad teeth, and out of shape.
Jenny Jacobs, 37, is now married with two children — but before she met the one, she says, she realized that British guys don’t do it for her.
Speaking to The Sun, the Cincinnati, Ohio-based personal trailer listed all of things she finds unattractive about men from across the pond — conclusions she mostly came to have her a single trip to England in 2013.
Personal trainer Jenny Jacobs says that before she got married, she’d sworn off British guys because she found them unattractive and ignorant
Trying it out: She chatted with British guys on dating apps and even flew from Cincinnati, Ohio to London to meet one, but it went nowhere
Jenny insists she wasn’t always against dating a Brit, and even spoke to a few online. But she never found any real romantic connection with any of them, and blames it on their looks.
She would see lots of British guys on an app called Beautiful People, but says she wasn’t physically attracted to them.
‘I’d say Brits are up there with Russian men as the ugliest men on the app,’ she said.
She recalled speaking to one British man online who seemed ‘very successful’ and had pictures of himself on yachts.
But she was concerned that he never showed his teeth while smiling and texted him to ask about it: ‘I see you’re not showing your teeth in any of your pictures, do you have bad teeth?’
Quick visit: After her four-day trip to England, she decided British guys were not for her
She said: ‘I’m a big teeth person, she said. ‘That’s something that stands out to me. [And] my main issues with British guys are height, teeth, and fitness.’
Nope: She said they have bad teeth and are too short for her, and also complained that they aren’t as focused on fitness as she is
She said he never responded, so she supposed it was true.
‘I’m a big teeth person, she said. ‘That’s something that stands out to me. [And] my main issues with British guys are height, teeth, and fitness.’
She’s 5’9″ and prefers a guy who is tall, and also considers herself a ‘fitness nut’.
Jenny already seems to have formed an opinion about them by the time she started talking to one man who lived in Brentwood, Essex.
In 2013, she flew out to meet him for four days — and while he was nice and planned a good trip, she wasn’t attracted to him.
She also wasn’t attracted to anyone else she came across.
‘I noticed a lot of the guys weren’t physically fit,’ she said. ‘A lot of them had bad teeth. They tend to be short and stocky framed, not tall and broad shouldered like the German frame.’
Her dream guy: She now has an American man who fit her standards, Justin Hopkins, 29
‘He’s got perfect straight teeth, he’s 6’4″, athletic, crystal blue eyes, a very strong structural face,’ she said of her husband, with whom she has two kids
What’s more, she said, she noticed several had the ‘disgusting’ habit of smoking and also drank too much.
‘Alcohol is a big thing in England,’ said Jenny, who stopped drinking at age 21. ‘If you get wasted every day, or you get drunk every day, maybe you’re a functioning alcoholic, it’s a little much. I noticed a lot of the Brits I was talking to were drinking every single day.’
She said she realized that there was ‘no way’ she’d find a British guy ‘who didn’t drink every single day.’
And that’s not all: She also said some of them were ‘ignorant’ and couldn’t fathom that a woman would know anything about football.
Luckily for Jenny, she managed to find an American man who fit her standards. She describes her husband Justin Hopkins, 29: ‘He’s got perfect straight teeth, he’s 6’4″, athletic, crystal blue eyes, a very strong structural face.’
She and her medical researcher husband have a three-month-old son named Xavier and a two-year-old daughter named Miracle.
