Europeans dating americas
When you go on a date, it’s usually go out to a fancy restaurant, go somewhere else for drinks or dessert and then you either go back to your place, or you say goodnight. The American woman usually expects you to call, though. The date can go from hiking to going to a museum in the same day.
Also, with regards to the topic of calling (or not calling), the European woman takes it as a hint – if you don’t call the next day, it means that you either didn’t like the date or you didn’t feel a spark. She’s going to move on with her life and think nothing of it. If a European woman wants to be intimate with you, she will let you know through her words and gestures.
But the having and growing of children, gardens, libraries, and art collections seem to demand something more permanent than romantic love allows.
And now I, too, am beginning to wonder whether the European way isn't more pragmatic, more intelligent, finally more durable.
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.
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.
Being thoroughly American (despite all the time I spend in Europe), my life has been a tribute to the American way of serial monogamy: passionate exclusive attachments, most of which have lasted about seven years.
I am a bonder, a marrier, who marries for love against all reason and who stays as long as love lasts.
European girl: A European girl is more likely to let you decide where you want to take her out for dinner.
You have American girl: She might suggest to meet up directly at the restaurant.
