I Fantasy OF HAGGIS: My Guide to Dating Scottish Boys

I DREAM OF HAGGIS: My Guide to Dating Scottish Men

I get a surprising amount of emails from women – mainly American and Canadian – about dating Scottish boys: e.g. what’s the difference inbetween a Scottish vs. North American dude, what does it mean when a Scottish boy asks them out for a drink with all his friends and so on and so forward. Most of the time I react because they’re just looking for advice/ perspective and as everyone knows, I have publicly lamented about dating in this country so I am more than glad to pass on what I have learned, if anything.

Much of this rings true to me but reminds me that years of living abroad have turned me into a foreigner. I’d choose to go to someone’s house than the pub and I’d blunder into the ",are you married?", type questions right away. oh and I expect studs to express themselves articulately. Hey, maybe I should stir to Canada?

Hey, not to sound rude or anything, but you still haven’t posted for December and it’s almost Christmas! :O

o: Funnily enough my beau is of Scottish descent and we actually love taunting and mocking each other. He must have picked this up from his dad’s side of the family (that or its an inherent quality to Scots 😛 )

my bf’s from dunfermline and so much of this is true about him!When we very first began dating/ talking he would insult me and i took it offensive at knuckle so i insulted back but i guess he found that lovely and he later ensured me that he was just playing around like Scotts do.. so just call him a daft shit fer brains every now and learn a few Scottish words and he’ll love you forever.. trust me aken it gets lighter

I want a Scottish man Rarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ♥, xxx

Hi, I just moved to Aberdeen and I love your articles! I have no problem with witty banter instead of overt declarations love BUT the question remains: what to do if you’re not convenient sleeping with the dude you like before ever having even been taken on a date? Is that what all guys expect, and is there no middle ground?

My friend recommended this dating for travelers website called globogirls.com. At very first I thought the idea is a little bit bizarre but I gave it a attempt and it was worth it.

I’ve joined this site because www.globogirls.com mainly because I dreamed to organize a cool journey. But it was awesome when I found that you can actually find a travel mate. There are slew of stunning fellows out there. It truly helps if you’re not looking for something serious.

This tips are actually true for most of nothern Europe, at least the part about not asking someone straight forward if they are single or not, about the social rules and about the dating part. That is also why many northern Europeans sometimes find the Americans too noisy and to straigh forward.

This is just raceist I can’t believe that you would make statements 100% accurately correct. I would be offended if it wasn’t true.

ha,ha,ha,veri nice and very correct.

Oh hah sounds like the love of my life, Canadian fellows can be way to sensitive when poking joy. I’m moving to London then possibly Edinburgh or Cardiff in 6 months cant wait to attempt out the dating.

Love this! I’m dating a Scottish boy at the moment, and all of this rings so true. Especially about avoiding the word ‘date’, the witty banter and the insults! Excellent advice here.

Thank you so much for this! I’ve been talking to a dude from Glasgow &, I am learning a lot but still in that process of LEARNING haha so I appreciate the info, I’m American so it’s been interesting to say the least! Thanks again!! 🙂

Sheeeeesh I ",chilled out", with A Scottish dude a duo of times and things were going well then today I asked him out on a date and there was like a ",cold moment",. and he did not even say yes or no. I wish I had read this sooner!! I’ll apply the Silent treatment and see if he misses me :/ that Scott is hot and caring and knows about Tantra. Hope I did not fuck it up before it even began.

Cheeky Scotsman, you’re messed up. Wanna go on a date?

I live in Canada and my beau is still in Scotland and we will be together soon. This gave me the idea to create an international dating site www.internationalfindsoulmate.com so people who want to date lets say a Scottish studs can go to, you are most welcome to join, joining is free

I am about to go to Scotland. This helps explain some of the trouble I have communicating with studs online. Hysterical. My straight talkin’ American mouth is gonna have a raunchy rail. esp at the pub! Thanks for the insight!!

After ",dating",someone from Scotland for 6 years I feel like Im an pro. Your always reading inbetween the lines as they are slimy fish these Scotland studs. Marriage cant be brought up either or they run for the hills. lol.

very helpful and useful dating article. I indeed liked it

I have found my boy friend here

I began a blog yesterday about my future stir to Edinburgh, and my 2nd entry is a response to this. Could I be bold enough to ask you to comment?

I am dating a Scottish man. He is

wonderful. Patient, a gentleman

joy and always considerate of my feelings. Sexy personality. Beautiful paramour. Makes you feel like a real woman. And makes me feel so special.

Ok so how does one go about meeting a good Scotsman? where in Scotland is the best place to meet A single fellow? The Pub is the Demonstrable response of course but is Glasgow better than lets say Edinburgh or can you meet a man on the islands? I mean alot of it (Scotland) is pretty rural right? What about the highland games? Joy events? So many questions. 🙂

You ended certain reliable points there. I did a search on the subject and found almost all persons will agree with your blog.

Hit the ravage right on the heid!! I’m a Scotsman, born and raised in glasgow. I was pissin myself at it, it’s so true! Lol well played??

I mean,",Do bonnie Scots lassies date us stunning black laddies?",

Hopefully you guys were just fortunate finding your Scottish half, mine unluckily even tho’ being the largest love and most truthful in my 30 years old life occurred to be the most painfull and violent Ive ever encountered

1. Scotts are alcoholics of the worst kind, aggressive violent and scum

Ungortunately this is the exemple they were given as children growing up on benefits, they do drink until basically they can stand, until they get aggressive and embark hammering a shit out of you, proving every single spank was the one you had deserved

Two. They are lazy

Benefits given by the UK government made them so comfy that as a woman you will be compelled to be not only a mother, a housewife, a servant but also a provider to the worthless parasite whose only aim in life will be to give orders and determine what’s to be done or not to be done in the house

Three. Mamma is more significant than you will eve be

You as a woman would never ever be able to stand up to the mamma’s standards. Unluckily this is not a joke that when Scots do procreate within their own families it should be treated as common, and you *the one that is coming from the outside of the family* you should expect to hear that you are a come bucket, used rag or other lovely adjective your Scot primitive that I have never even heard in my life as a foreigner

Four. And eventually expect a Scot to bring the local community against you, intimidate in the neighbourhood and after that to go to have tipsy lovemaking with your best friend because that’s how Scotland had been built – on betrayal, lack of honour, respect, violence and alcoholic obliviance. Cause this is the exemple they were given as children growing up on benefits, they do drink until basically they can stand, until they get aggressive and begin hitting a shit out of you, proving every single spank was the one you had deserved

Two. They don,t like to work

Benefits given by the UK government made them so comfy that as a woman you will be coerced to be not only a mother, a housewife, a servant but also a provider to the worthless parasite whose only aim in life would be to give orders and determine what,s to be done or not to be done

Trio. Mamma is an exemple!

My ex beau mother not only has been openly having hook-up with her brother but you as a woman would never ever be able to stand up to the mamma,s standards. Unluckily this is not a joke that when Scots do procreate within their own families it should be treated as common, because you *the one that is combing from the outside of the family* you should expect to hear that you are a come bucket, used rag or any other hideous name cause for a Scot a disrespect is a 2nd name

Four. And ultimately expect a Scot to bring the local community against you, intimidate in the neighbourhood and after that to go to have buzzed hookup with your best friend because that’s how Scotland had been built – on betrayal, lack of honour, respect, violence and alcoholic oblivian. No wonder you are not independant

I take it you have some strange anti-Scottish racist/bigoted agenda? As we say in Scotland, that is a ‘pile of shite!’. I assume it is meant as some kind of joke, it is not funny. As a Scot, I find what you have written there to be false, ridiculous and deeply offensive. If I ever meet you, we will be having serious words.

Hi! Am leaving this ad hoping someone could help me!

I would like to reconnect with a Glasgow Ranger supporter and a Scot/Glaswegian!He was the most Charming and lovely dude!And finding him and having him in my life would be most amazing!:)He lives in Thousand Oaks,CA USA!!

Could anyone in that area in S.Cailf help me?Does anyone have any search advice?Please be nice!!

I have never met a true Scot, but I have to agree with you. It shows up this unfortunate youthful lady just met an asshole. Her perception of an entire culture has most certainly been skewed and tainted with her practice with this one loser. As for her, my question is why did she take so long to get out. It doesn’t take a more than a duo of days to figure out if someone is not for you. Maybe her idea of possibly switching this person was her unavoidable peril.

I’ve never traveled beyond the US, but common sense tells you there are boys (and women) of little dignity, moral character or basic human decency in all countries and at different levels of society. Masters of disguise are rough to detect until sometimes too late, but the rest. hints are dropped along the way as you get to know the person. Choosing to remain despite hints of (or evident) mistreatment is on you.

Breathe,I come from a deeply rooted Scottish American family. As of right now, I am having a failed marriage due to our Trio year old son has a Wilms tumor (kidney cancer) and it’s just been a rocky marriage anyways. So in a ideal world I’d love to swoop up my children, stir them to some quiet country home, and raise goats and sheep in Scotland. And to sometimes ",not date", a nice Scottish man. I could so write a book about this fantasy.

God, I read all these articles on dating European dudes and it just scares me to no end! I’m American, but never dated before and want to live in Europe(which I’ve visited before and will be visiting again soon). Oh, and I’m celibate. So that cuts out like 98% of studs everywhere. Dating here is complicated and scary enough, but the ",not dating", culture I keep reading on scare me even more. I’m not at all forward when it comes to guys I like( if there friends I’m a fine person to be around!) and can be a bit blunt, or quiet when I get around guys I like. Witty banter gets me tongue tied and I usual just melt into embarrassed muffle. I feel like I’ll be forever alone if I stir over there ??. Oh well! A lady can fantasy.

Excellent read, Positive site, where did u come up with the information on this posting?I have read a few of the articles on your website now, and I truly like your style. Thanks a million and please keep up the effective work. over 40 dating site

You are very fortunate to have found such a ‘rarity’. That is the type of man, of whom, I have always dreamed. I have only been discouraged by American dudes. Albeit I am a 60+year old American woman of Scot descent, my forever-prayer will be to find MY ",Scot", and comeback to the land of my ancestors before my days are over.

I usually travel around and Im used to foreign people, I met an Aberdonian dude in Munich last weekend and had one night stand. He was a bit buzzed but still standing and I had the feeling he hid from his pals everytime he dreamed to smooch me or hug me more deeply. We both had to fly back to our countries so no more meetings. He is my very first scot and I normally keep in touch texting and so on, but the 2nd time I did i think he was not in the mood of doing it.

So how the hell can a doll keep in touch with a scottish stud without making him feel as you wished to tie the knot.

I noticed, from my time in Scotland.. it’s not that they don’t date. They do! They just begin in groups (like a safety net)and don’t CALL it dating. Dating is implied if they ask for you to join the group a few times. The dating evolves into single one on one time eventually, it just happens instead of people having to say ",Are we dating?",. They figger you can tell, eyeing as he keeps calling you.. But it’s still ",old fashioned", thinking because the guys want to pursue, not be chased by chicks.

You do not have to put out to get the man . in fact I found the Scots want you more if they have to pursue you. 🙂

God. How many ways to just say one thing.. So, you don’t have to ask for a date, you are never going to pronounce date, but actually you’re dating. Well, I think that every women should stop. Only Americans and maybe English fellows use to like a propositive woman. Usually other dudes don’t (if you are looking for a serious situation of course). Come on, we’re women, how to flirt and how to date is in our blood if we truly want it! I am an Italian chick, living in Thailand and thinking to budge to Scotland in a duo of years.. You should see how Thai’s women are.. I’m here with Italian bf. It’s a work everyday to keep him out of damsels messes. And here it’s indeed a job attempting to keep staying boys by your side. Scottish are like a mix of Italians, English and northern studs. If you are thinking why.. Well.. Italians for passion and way of love, English because of their manners, north fellows because you can see how much they love to say they’re half Saxons and loving rain and cold weather.

Haha what alot ehh shite, why would you even stay with a mink that treats yeh like that ! One bad apple ! Ross Fae Scotland �,�,

I had an american version of the man u described. Cant judge all by ones deeds. Looking for a Scot. I am of Scotish decent and my heart longs for the world my soul already knows.

I’m so sorry about your child I hope things get better for you and your child

I’m so sorry about your child I hope things get better for you and your child

Hi I am Liam, I am a 21 year old Scot, 6ft2, dark wavy hair and work in the entertainment industry. I am truly interested in getting to know any US females. Maybe have a relationship?I love a good laugh and good company. if I sound like your sort of man I can be contacted at [email protected] , thanks Liam 🙂

I am married to a Scotsman, he has been in America for Trio years now. They throw out all their emotions at one utter swoop, get it over with and their done. When they get mad they let liberate, again, they get done and budge on. mean while as an American I have been trained to keep things inwards so when scotty lets liberate and says things, some mean nasty stuff and then he is done . I am still indeed angry and he is chipper and does not understand why I am angry lol. My Scotsman does not drink, works like a dog and is most sultry in bed. Very proud of where he is from, we have the Scottish flag marking his turf, under the American flag of course as he is appreciative to America for permitting us to be together. Most do not know how to work on cars or houses, I do that lol. But I will say he is a very loyal good man who would do anything for me. He does however say he is going back home often when he gets upset with our American laws and regulations, ESPECIALLY healthcare,,RIP OF MERCHANTS he calls them or sleekit bastards. He has such a strong accent, that people ask him to speak english and you should see how angry he gets over that one! I get crimson faced and ashamed people here are that stupid. Has a ",Fifer", on his car and the scottish flag and he NEVER like to go anywhere unless I am by his side. Has the best direction of anyone I have ever known, no matter where he is, he finds his way. Yep, he is a keeper.

Honestly i dont get how women think they’ll find a good man at bars.. I dont care where your from there are christian guys or studs in general who despise an over drinker.. You want the wrong kind of man you will find it. Also if you go lookibg to sleep with a man it is likely he will infact treat you like a one night stand. Met a fellow dont call it a date.. Call it ",going out", or when can I see ya again", if hes the right kind of man for you he’ll respect you and showcase you honor until your ready to take things further.

Very first of all, you should have more respect for yourself than to stay with a ",man", that would act like that. A REAL man does not mistreat anyone. Scot or not. I like upbeat banter but us Texans are considered too direct sometimes. But I would like to a REAL SCOTSMAN! Sadly, I don’t know on Texas.

I to am of Scottish decent..I desire of finding him..God willing..I will!

I am Scottish, 6ft3, tall, dark andHandsome, self made businessman working in the entertainments industry. I am looking for an American or Canadian for a relationship. I don’t drink and I do work very hard. I am 22 but open to any age as long as there is a spark. Yes I have a kilt lol. I live in fife where they film outlander, about 40 minutes from Edinburgh castle. Email me at [email protected] and let’s see where it goes 🙂

I guess I’ll be dreaming with you!

Ultimately .. some positive feedback! I’m a single American woman traveling alone to Scotland in a few months, and I’m unbelievable jumpy! I was beginning to think I’d have to live in a pub and stay inebriated to make friends!

email me if youd like to catch up sometime 🙂

Ok so how do you find out if your the only one he is ",dating",

Okay. Sweerheart what you had there was a boy with a slew of disorders. Better luck next time and do abit of assessing next time! ( crimson flags and all).
