Part of the "fun" of travel is "meeting" attractive peoples from other countries. A new website is making it easy to hook up with foreigners, at least British ones, without even boarding a plane. Now, American ladies can easily track down and compliment British dudes on their accents thanks to DateBritishGuys.com. According to the site, it offers a "unique dating opportunity" to men and women "looking to add a little diversity to their love lives, meeting that special American woman next door, or that dashing British gentleman you've been waiting for is simple on our easy to use interface."

Three years later, after he had moved stateside, they married. With the new site, Elman has said he’s “on a mission to pass on the love my wife and I have to the rest of the world.” The couple’s story is currently listed on the website’s “success stories,” and thus far it’s the only one.
