Dating culture in usa history of dating practices in the u s
I remember one girl I went out with from the UK whose mother knew all of her intimate details.
It was a bit embarrassing when I finally met her, but hey, better be honest than conceal the truth?
British girls, meanwhile, do not spend the same amount of money on themselves as American girls, nor do they expect you to spend a lot on them.
In Britain, we are self-deprecating to the point where we convince ourselves that we're utterly useless in life.
Which brings me to American girlfriend number five, who was paralyzed by her hoards of self-help books.
Over-analyzing American family dynamics is still something that remains a bit of a mystery to me.
It just took me a while to realize that this might have nothing to do with etiquette at all, but rather, it might be because American women are more anxious than British women.Similarly, American girls are much more lavish in their approach to life; and this includes the restaurants and hotels they expect to be taken to.Money and salary is brought up frequently, and name dropping is prevalent in a good portion of conversations, especially in Los Angeles where status is paramount.After all, as she put it, "dancers don't make a lot of money." I wasn't the guy that could spoon feed her, so it ended.But surely not all American girls thought British men had an endless supply of money?
