Date someone from Sheffield, and they'll call you "petal" all the time.

3. We're even adorable when we're insulting you. / Via Instagram: @jacf_lfc

What do you mean we sound more cute than mad?

4. We produce brooding romantics with great hair who write beautiful music. Whether you like the more mature gent... / Via Instagram: @w00dstergram

Arctic Monkey Alex Turner proving that Sheffield is the quiff and leather jacket capital of the UK.

6. And on top of being incredibly sexy, we're chuffin' hilarious. / Via

Whether we're laughing at our own jokes or someone else's, nothing can beat that dry Sheffield wit.

8. We definitely know a good countryside pub for a weekend lunch. / Via Instagram: @zaereo

Yeah, that's a pretty average Sheffield pub scene.

9. And if you like beer, we're the real ale capital of the UK. / Via Instagram: @sparnott

Because nothing says, "I love you" like a well-kept barrel.

10. We've got thighs of steel thanks to all the hills.

If your S.O. lives anywhere near Hagg Hill, they definitely have thighs that can crack coconuts.

If your S.O. lives anywhere near Hagg Hill, they definitely have thighs that can crack coconuts.

11. But no matter what our size, we're all pretty confident with our bodies. / Via

If the Full Monty proved anything, it's that there's a market for every body type in Sheffield.

12. Three little words: Proper. Yorkshire. Puddings. / Via Instagram: @_kates

And if you date one of us, we'll make 'em for you.

13. When we talk about our special sauce, we're being entirely serious. / Via Instagram: @lordcroker

16. And we can even take you to a place where you can pose with an IRL polar bear. / Via Instagram: @lekacarnevalli

Meet Snowy; South Yorkshire's finest and furriest.

17. We're upfront about our faults. / Via Instagram: @richzsirai

In a charmingly self-deprecating way, of course.

18. We don't wear coats on nights out, so you'll never have to worry about queueing for the cloakroom come kicking-out time. / Via Instagram: @miclui91

No cloakroom queue = £1 saved and off to Kebabish quicker than those chumps who prioritise being warm.

19. We're ludicrously proud of our hometown. / Via Instagram: @life_of_an

And we'll give a reyt clip 'round lug'oil to any gobshite who has 'owt bad to say about us.

20. Some say tight, we say "more money for the things that matter". Like beer and chips. / Via Instagram: @squee

If you're lucky enough to date someone from Sheffield, you'll quickly learn how to be savvy with your cash.

21. We know how to make even the most basic meal special. / Via Instagram: @chrisjamescoy

Fry-up in a pint-sized castle, anyone?

22. We love a drink, so you'll never be the drunkest one in the couple. / Via Instagram: @toryleigh_23

50p shots at Corporation have a lot to answer for.

It's scientifically impossible to have an ego when you've spent your entire life being called a daft apeth by your mum.

24. We'll literally talk to anyone. / Via Instagram: @leanne_ant

We're friendly to a fault. On the bus, in the post office queue, in the bogs... most Sheffielders can't leave the house without meeting at least new two BFFs.

25. Even our graffiti is centred around romance. / Via Instagram: @furcoat

Pete McKee's "The Snog" mural at Fagan's is a prime example.

26. And if things go really well, you're guaranteed an excellent gift on your 11th wedding anniversary. / Via Instagram: @errol_p_dan_
