Bada bing, bada boom, the New York accent was voted the second most attractive in a Cupid.com survey, information revealed exclusively to the Sex and Relationships Examiner on Thursday from Cherry PR, the public relations firm that handles the dating site.
So, how you doin? Apparently if you are from New York you are doing very well according to a recent survey conducted by Cupid.com, which asked 2,000 users which region of North America had the most attractive accent, and New York ranked second. The southern drawl earned top nods with 36.5%, 45% males and 28% females preferring y’all over the New York yo, that garnered 16.5%, 10% males and 23% females.
What is it that makes the New York accent so appealing to members of the opposite sex? According to the popular dating network, Cupid.com, New Yorkers have a short, sharp directness that sometimes comes across as harsh, but that didn’t stop it from landing second place as most attractive accent in North America. The New Yawk tawk is quite popular, especially amongst those women surveyed, possibly because it is so recognizable, which makes it a favorite with singles.
Fuggedaboutit! Those of us born and bred in New York know all too well how cute our speech is. But, we also understand that among the regions of this big state are variations of the famous New Yawk talk, most notable New Joisey, who adopted its dialect from New York transplants, yet ranked 5% in the Cupid.com sexy accent survey.
Long Island, or as we like to say, Lawngeh Eyelan, has a sweet twang associated with the likes of Theresa Caputo. Den dere is da Brooklynese, and if you didn’t understand dat or that, it translates to then there is the Brooklynese, where people use turlets (toilets). Staten Island is a combination of all of the above, but only residents of the Big Apple can identify the dissimilarities. We also lay claim to the tuff-tawkin Puerto Rican/New York accent, along the lines of Rosie Perez.
However, a new, most annoying derivative of the New York inflection has been growing amongst young urbanites, teens and college-aged individuals, the speech where they whine and elongate sentences and end statements in the form of a question? Here’s hoping this trend ends soon so the strong and sexy New Yawk talk can earn its way to the top spot of the Cupid.com dating poll.
