European men dating american women
The American "system (if we may call it anything so formal as that) is the romantic's way and the European is the classicist's.The roar of outrage that greeted Shere Hite's assertion that 70 percent of American wives married more than five years are unfaithful just goes to show how against American values this notion of "open" marriage is: Americans idealistically imagine their marriages closed.It is just assumed that monogamy is rare, if not impossible, among lively people, and the question never comes up."Whether my friend's observation is true or not (for I have many European friends who do seem to care deeply about their mate's fidelity), it certainly does seem that Europeans see marriage differently than Americans do.Marriage is for stability, friendship, children; love is for the adrenaline highs and lows of sexual madness, the romance of being appreciated by anew person, the joys of flirting, pursuing, and clandestine coupling.I love our French men as long as I do not have to date them." "I don't have tons of experience with Americans, but the ones I have dated tend to be much more open about how they are feeling and what they want, which makes it easier to date. A certain degree of selfishness is essential for a well-working relationship and New Yorkers seem to have that built into their DNA." "As a general rule, Americans are not going to beat around the bush.When they feel something, they will tell you -- whether it's that they like, want, or don't like or want something.We do quite fancy some of the Southern ones, like the Southern Belle accent, which is a lot less trashy. It’s unfortunate, because I’m sure a lot of the women with those accents are quite intelligent.” “In America, a joke is something that has a punch line. Sometimes an American girl just looks at you funny, and there’s no laugh — just a look of bewilderment — where the “ha ha” moment should be. ” “In England, there’s no expectation until ‘girlfriend’ status has been declared. So, if you hook up with someone (not including one night stands, of course), you’re beholden to them in some way.
American men seem much more interested in getting to know you. I think there's a freshness about sex in America that makes it more fun to be with an American woman." "The best thing about dating my American girlfriend is her true New York spirit: the idea that she can do anything, anytime, and doesn’t have to apologize for putting herself first.
It's your first date, she's not comfortable with you coming to pick her up.
