About This Quiz

There are some 70 million Brits and 320 million Americans, which means about 20 million British men and 95 million American men over the age of 18. Of those, about 40-45% are in prime singledom age, and half of those are single. So that gives us five million British dudes and say, 23 million American dudes who are of marriageable age and not currently shacked up with someone.

That's a lot of guys to choose from. Indeed, it's so many that even allowing that some of them are jerks, some of them are stupid, and some of them are simply located in places that no sane person would ever want to live, there are still more potentially eligible guys out there than one woman could date in a lifetime. 

That's why it is so important to triage so that one doesn't waste time on the ones who are not suitable, because there's almost certainly more than one good one out there and the only way to find him is to eliminate the bad options as fast as possible and focus on the good.

One way to do that is establish cultural preferences: in this case, British or American? Figure out what you prefer and go where that kind of guy clusters, and you're one step closer to picking the perfect partner. If you tell us your preferences, we'll help you figure out which group suits you best!
