Why are most British people so socially cold?
I have known some british people in real life. They did seem more reserved and quiet.
But I wouldn't know, I wasn't there for long enough.
I've found Londoners and English people in general to be extremely polite and in possession of great civic pride. It's a nice change from Ireland. Smile
And blood-black nothingness began to spin
A system of cells interlinked within
Cells interlinked within cells interlinked
Within one stem. And dreadfully distinct
Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

That I noticed too.
I don't live in the UK, but I'd have to say the statement in your title is incorrect. London is a big city from my understanding, so naturally, you are going to have more people in a rush and less inclined to stop and be social/nice to you.

This is true EVERYWHERE, not just in the UK. Some people in NYC and Los Angeles and Las Vegas are going to be less polite than in smaller areas or close knit areas. It's all about where you are and what you are doing.

Also, LDRs happen everywhere, just because you don't know about them, doesn't mean they aren't happening

I've met some British people and the ones I've met have been very friendly and nice, warm and polite. I found them not as cold as the people around where I live.
I don't agree with that statement. It's a myth.
The population in London is what, about 8 million? What percentage of that would constitute, 'most'?

It's probably like that everywhere, and I wouldn't pay attention to Facebook shit. LDR's do exist despite you not knowing any, but the truth of the matter is that they're known to be difficult so clearly they're not gonna be as popular as a "normal" relationships.

This...^ I don't agree either, it's quite a generalization to say that 'most British people are socially cold.' My mum is British, I know lots of people from the UK, and I've never found this at all - as a whole, I find them to be very pleasant, easy-going, polite, witty. Maybe they are not as demonstrative as people from other countries (meaning hugs as greetings, touchy/feely, expressive) and this is what you perceive as socially cold? But again, that's a generalization. Really, the same could be said for any culture/country - depends on context, the individual person's personality, etc...
