Why Scottish men are every woman's dream come true

Even though I was in Scotland only for a week and even though I only accidentally ran into Scottish men in my short trip there, judging by their friendliness and unprecedented good manners, I am convinced that they should be every woman's dream come true. Personally, I am way too old for this sort of a thing or perhaps a little too self-confident to be entrapped in the wonders of love, but any woman who still has faith in her childhood fantasies of a perfect love and is still single, should by all means move to Scotland to find her Prince Charming there.

A kind hearted Scot

After having spent two weeks in London amongst the stiff upper lipped true Brits, Scotland was a welcome change. London left my heart barren and dry, whereas in Scotland I started feeling human again! Londoners can either blame me for forming quick judgements or take inspiration from the kind-hearted Scottish man whom I met at the London's Kings Cross Station, while boarding the train to Edinburgh. This nice man who was a complete stranger to me, not only carried my two heavy bags to my coach but also settled me in, making sure everything was fine with me before leaving. When I thanked him for his kind-heartedness, he said that whenever his mother traveled alone, she always got help from her fellow passengers and that through his service to me, he was only returning a small part of the favour done to him. I was very impressed by his courtesy but not to the point of falling in love--as I just mentioned that I am way above the delusory snares of such pointless emotions, but for those who believe, read on...!

Once on the train, I quickly forgot about this episode as I lost myself in the beauty of the passing picturesque landscapes of sheep farms, breeding horses, mountains, lakes and rivers--English countryside can be truly breathtaking and gets even lovelier as one approaches Scotland.

Another kind hearted Scot

At the Edinburgh platform, I once again asked a Scot to help me with my bags who astonished me again by carrying my bags for me from the train coach and up the flight of stairs to the main exit where I could roll them easily to the taxi stand! This experience repeated itself when I was taking the train from Edinburgh to Inverness and then again from Inverness to London's Kings Cross, by which time I was truly floored by the chivalry of Scottish men! I have traveled a lot in Europe and especially in Germany, where I have found German men very thoughtful and attentive, but what I experienced in Scotland was truly another dimension of chivalry!

A good-looking Scot

Scottish men can also be incredibly good-looking. I remember on my last day in Inverness, as I was checking out of the hotel at 6a.m. still half asleep and tired as hell despite the long hot shower and two cups of coffee, I was wide-awakened by the handsome face of the Scottish man at the front office who was checking me out. It was as if Hugh Jackman had come live in front of me and I almost wanted to click his picture for this post but felt way too shy to ask him! I even ran back from the cab to click him but by this time his colleagues had appeared at the front desk and I did not want to embarrass him!

A rich Scot

As you may already know, Scotland is dotted with castles and if you are lucky, your man may even come with a castle or two but let us be sincere and not make a castle the reason for falling in love.:)

P.S. This post is intended for those who still believe that love is a many splendored thing. As for me, none of the above shall drive me into falling in love except love itself......if such a thing exists.
