Why is it that, as a general rule, I get along with English people so much better than Australians?

Think Candy has it, question of numbers. Plus maybe it's the kind of Englishmen you've met, most cricket fans are crashingly good chaps.
As I'm sure all English posters would attest, we have a fairly high proportion of arseholes in the general population.

- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
I think it's also to do with that you come across as quite English, probably something in that. Would explain further but cbf to type on my phone.
"It was an easy decision to sign. I could have gone elsewhere, I had calls, but it never entered my mind it's not about the money."
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
I think that you are still in love with that English girl in your avatar and whenever you chat to another person from England you are reminded of her and want to be friends with them so you have a place to stay when you decide to visit her.
Depends on the answer to several questions, one of which is whether you mentally adjust your behaviour towards people once you find out whether they're from England or Australia. Could be that you getting along better is self-fulfilling if you want be be appealing to English people who are then subsequently more friendly towards you, thus fuelling your positive opinion, etc.
You social monitoring ****.
Before I went overseas for the first time I felt as though I got along better with Europeans but like TC says it's because I just found what they said more interesting as a lot of it was new to me.
When I came back to Oz the first time it was like this too, but it's only because I was having an awesome time o/s to a pretty normal time back here and everything people said here was more predictable then when I was in new exciting places.
Go overseas mate.

Probably that they are more accepting of your poor personal hygiene.
