We’ve listed out the pros and the cons of dating an Irish man. Choose wisely this Valentines and consider these points before you agree or disagree to a date with the rare breed that is Irish men.
The Irish accent has been voted the sexiest accent in the world topping the poles and beating the French and Italian accents who for years were the reliable favourites. Get yourself an Irish man and listen to sweet nothings in a rustic tone all year round.
The Irish Charm
It’s been said an Irish man can charm the legs of anything or anyone! They have a way with words, a warm smile and attentive ways that are enough to make anyone go weak at the knees.
The Irish Humour
An Irish man has a great sense of humour. Absolutely anything can be made into a joke, the serious and light situations. And after all, laughter is the key to the heart!
Extremely important to every Irish man. He’ll slag everyone else but talk bad about his family and you’ve crossed the line.
It’s rare to see an Irishman uptight and stressing about the small stuff. They take a more simplistic approach and let problems solve themselves. It will all work out in the end.
Loyalty to Friends
An Irish man will always stay loyal to his friends. They take their bromances very seriously and take pride in their male friendships.
Gift of the Gab
An Irish man could quite literally be left talking to a wall. It appears all Irishmen have had a kiss off the Blarney stone and been given the gift of eloquence. You can be sure not to come across any awkward silences or be stuck for conversation.
You won’t put your hand in your pocket
Irish men can be very decent when it comes to paying for a lady. Of course, there are exceptions (men with their communion and confirmation money still in savings) but many of them won’t see you with an empty glass in your hand.
Mammy Comes First
He may love you but he loves his mother more; get ready for a life of comparison. “This is how my mother makes it, well my mam would…” He may hate to admit it but it’s true!
He Will Argue
As we mentioned before, they do love to talk which is why they find it hard to hold back their tongue in certain discussions. Be prepared for a few heated debates.
When he goes for one pint or a few sociable drinks with the lads, he may not return for days.
What are these? It is still very much the woman that does most of the cleaning and cooking, and pretty much the running of the house.
No to Shopping
Most Irish men don’t like to shop. If you want him in new clothes, you must get them for him. They find it hard to understand that Christmas presents from the shop at the local petrol station just don’t impress.
The majority of them don’t know their left from their right but despite this will proceed to the dancefloor. Watch out.
Want to treat your Irish beau?
Get him an authentic Irish gift or Irish wool sweater to show him you care, even if he’s driving you up the wall with his inability to do the shopping!
