Know dating american guy
“YESSSSS, WOOHOOOO, USA, USA.” Contrast this with the contestants of the Dutch version of this programme, who usually respond with a muted, “nou, wat leuk, ik ben door.” Which brings me to the subject of today’s post, the differences between Dutch and American men.The Shallow Man recently wrote about the differences between Dutch and American girls.Whether it’s to meet someone because you’re lonely in a new city, to find that special someone, or to have a Spanish conversation partner – take the leap.So Americans, I say to you – neither of you are Barbie or Ken models of what a perfect partner is.
One of the very obvious difference is the dating game. But I was not aware that accepting to go out to dinner with a man alone gave the signal that I was possibly romantically interested in him.
I guess it’s much more accepted in France for men and women to be friends.
However, if a woman is dining with a man, you can bet he will pick up the check. I usually trick them by asking to be excused (as if I was going to the lady’s room, grab the waiter and give him my credit card).
If your expat game plan includes finding love then you’ll need to wrap your brain around romancing the American way. S.-style dating looks a lot like it does elsewhere: find someone you don’t hate on sight and who you strongly suspect isn’t a serial killer, then arrange to meet for some kind of shared food or beverage experience. It’s like a job or house hunt, which means investigating more than one prospect at a time.
Here, people tend to take a business-like approach to finding a mate.
