There are certain accents that just make you swoon. But according to a new study, there’s one accent that reigns supreme in its ability to make people weak in the knees.

A poll of 11,000 people conducted by The Time Out Global Dating Survey found that the British accent was chosen ahead of an American accent with Irish and Australian behind.

Mashable reported that French was deemed the fifth sexiest accent followed by Italian, Spanish and Scottish respectively.

However, there was no distinction between regional accents, so the sexiness of a mild Southern drawl was mixed right in with the sultriness of a Long Island construction worker.

While French may no longer be the language of love, Paris is still regarded as the most romantic city where as London placed sixth. And while the French may not woo the world with their words, the study reported Paris has the world’s best dating scene, followed by Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing and Chicago.

So if you’re a Brit looking for love, head to Paris and you should be golden.
