Today, through a mutual friend I met with a girl from Netherlands for dinner. At some point, she told me I have an Antillean accent, referring to the Dutch Antilles. I was born and raised nowhere near those islands, but my former boyfriend of 5 years is Antillean. Now I have his accent. FML

It's actually hypothesized that couples take on each others traits. I read somewhere where they sometimes take on each other's smiles too. I now can't stop noticing it in people. Can't help it op it's in your nature.

Why FYL? I think that's kind of cute. My father was an American serviceman, and my older sister had lived through two of his tours in Germany. She had picked up a German accent. When my family moved back stateside, i was learning to talk like she did. I've spent most of the rest of my life in New Orleans but people find it hard to believe i grew up there.

There's quite a bit of research done on how partners often pick up cues and habits, verbal and otherwise, from the other one. Quite interesting.
