Southern accents most attractive, survey shows

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -

Christy Smith fell for her husband's Southern accent before she ever laid eyes on him. The Washington state native met her husband through a dating website while they were living on the West Coast. They talked on the phone for a couple of weeks before meeting.

"I could listen to him talk forever," Smith said she remembers thinking of her now-husband Chig Martin, who is originally from Rossville.

Who can resist a sweet, Southern lilt? Not many, it turns out.

A Southern drawl is the most attractive accent in North America, according to a new survey by the dating website Cupid.com. Of the 2,000 people polled, 36.5 percent said that Southern accents were the most attractive. In second place was the New York accent, with 16.5 percent of the vote.
