    I speak in a type multitude of accents.

    some say it's fairly Scottish while others say it's British. though I think it's both fairly sometimes since the accents are accompanied by my voice tone

    I have a strong Spanish accent,

    I'm proud of it, it reminds me that I'm smart, dedicate and determine. I was able to learn a foreign language to be able to help my children with school assignments and be an active member of my community 🤗

    I am from the South(U.

    S) and though I have an accent, it doesn't mean I am an uneducated "hill-billy".

    I'm looking for getting paid

    for sex. I have never done it before but the idea of it really turns me on. I'm attractive white female from Scandinavia and I've been told I'm passionate and I love having sex. I don't think you would be disappointed.

    I speak English with a Norwegian accent.

    Some people like it, some people are impatient for me to get my words together. Some guys find it attractive, a group of girls at school taunted me relentlessly for it. But I am what I was made to be.

    I'm not from the south

    and I have never been to the south. I do live in the country and I have a southern accent. It's not very strong but it's definitely there, I think it's funny.

    I have different accents.

    My strongest would be a New Orleans accent, next would be Trinidadian, then Jamaican, then Puerto Rican, and last is Indian.

    So I speak 3 languages very well,

    people can get really judgemental because sometimes when I don't know a word in English I automatically say it in either French or Arabic... Horrible experience and they be like "what? What did you just say?" Or "excuse me?" Like please understand me quick!

    I Have An Accent. English is my first language,

    but whenever I do get to speak with my country's language, which is Filipino and I'm still not fluent with, I have an accent and that's why some people that I know teases me most of the time.

    I know I have an accent.

    I just don't know what it is. I grew up in New Zealand, have lived there all my life, but I don't have a Kiwi accent. My sisters do though. My accent is also clearly different from my parents too. So awkward when people ask me where I'm from; they are clearly not expecting New...

    I can speak in a standard American "Midwestern"

    accent, a southern "country" accent, and two Latino ones: the Mexican accent because it comes naturall and the Cuban/Caribbean one, but only in Spanish. One moment I can go from speaking in my Midwestern accent to English-speaking friends, and another moment to my Mexican...

    I don't think that I would really be me without

    my accent. Every guy I have ever been with has said that they love my accent and I wouldn't seem right with any other accent.

    "Say it again, say it again,

    " is what they tell me. So I say it, and they start laughing. I'm a born entertainer, I guess.

    I've always heard that guys like southern accents, but I've never really been told directly that I have a nice voice or anything. :/

    Well doesn't everyone?

    Mine is roughly a typical Surrey Received Pronunciation (BBC English) accent, but it'll adjust slightly depending on the accent of the person I'm talking to.
