English life in nuances

Before you go to England you need to learn as much as possible about the habits and traditions of the inhabitants of Misty Albion. In a word, today we will try to answer the question: “What kind of English are they?” The British are a peaceful and hospitable people. Respect their traditions, and then you will not have any problems in communicating with these nice people. Like the entire human race, the British are divided into men and women. Responsibilities in the family are strictly distributed, and everyone knows their place. But this does not prevent the fair sex from asserting their rights and making a completely serious career. The British love to live in small cozy houses. A prerequisite is a beautiful kindergarten where you can have a cup of tea or just chat with friends. Men rightly believe that women should be engaged in flower cultivation and growing vegetables. While gentlemen look through the morning newspapers, ladies have been digging in the ground for a long time, before doing a manicure. After all, a lady in any situation should remain a lady. The Botanical Garden fades next to any home English greenhouse. They will tell you about plant varieties, seeds and bulbs without stopping, interrupting only to water your favorite flowers. After that, you will no longer need any floriculture encyclopedia. Glorious English men are restrained in the occupation of their beloved little wives and practically do not take any part in it. However, their lovely ladies themselves are like flowers, because it is not without reason that they are called “English roses.” Once in the house of the friendly owners, you will see a large number of antique furniture. The British buy antiques in flea markets. Real dramas are often played out in these places, and you can very well witness a dispute between two respectable ladies over some wardrobe of Queen Victoria’s time. In the bar, you also will not have to be bored: there are many who want to tell you about their failed family life. And the reason for everything is chronic malnutrition, because English women do not like to cook! The cooking process for them turns into a real hell! The situation is saved by the semi-finished products, which are served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner by candlelight. A trip to a restaurant for the inhabitants of England is not a holiday, but a common occurrence. The time saved in this way is much more expensive than money and nerves! On top of that, English women cannot stand cleaning their homes. Almost every house has its own servant. As a rule, these are middle-aged women who have long raised their children and want to earn a little extra money. Young girls are less willing to take. After all, what kind of English rose would like to endure a beautiful lily next to it.

The privacy of subjects of the Queen of England

Up to 30 years, the first place in the life of the British is a career. Work ruthlessly eats up all your free time. And only after thirty potential brides and grooms begin to seriously think about marriage. By this time, they already have almost everything they need to create a family: a solid bank account, a cozy apartment in London and a great desire to get married or get married. All that remains is to plant a tree, give birth to children and write a book. With regard to meeting ladies, gentlemen are astonishingly modest and shy. So if a lady comes up first and asks to treat her with oatmeal, no one will be surprised at this, but on the contrary will even be happy! The British really like stylish Italians, sophisticated Spanish women and beautiful Russian girls. In a woman, they value a sense of humor and an easy attitude to life. Real English women know how to win the heart of a young man they like: a charming smile and a beautiful dress will make everyone speechless. And if you also talk about the national football team and treat all his friends at your own expense with a cocktail … But this only applies to young ladies from the capital. Village ladies are very different from them. They regularly go to church, practically do not make up, dress modestly, knit and sew beautifully. According to statistics, today in England, more and more men flock to the province to find a life partner there. In a word, chic London roses are not at all sweet, because it is very difficult for them to find a worthy gardener. After the wedding, you can think about the children. One child in the family is a rarity, more often there are three, especially since the money savings allow not only to feed, but also to learn the entire noble family at the proper level. These are these Englishmen … They say that it is very easy to make friends with them. You only need to be fluent in English, eat oatmeal for breakfast every day and drink tea at five in the evening.
