Dating differences us and uk
Now, when I discuss the differences between European and American, I’m referring to a mindset. American men on the other hand, tend to be goal oriented, with the aim of getting laid.
You can very well be born in America but have a more “European” mindset and vice versa. Perhaps this ‘score mentality’ is for bragging rights, perhaps it’s for validation so they can feel wanted and desired, or perhaps it’s a pure ego play.
I’ll call them – Cool Logicians and Heartfelt Believers. They have read the experts and considered the research. Cool Logicians are also aware that dating more than one person at a time can raise your perceived value.
They know that meeting a great person often means you have to meet lots of people. It can make you seem more in demand and like a “catch.” Of course, it can also make you seem like a low-down dirty dog.
When suggesting when asked out that we meet for coffee I was told that is so American. For guys last call at the pub means last chance to talk to a girl before you get chucked out and have to go home alone. They want a rich, successful, beautiful, smart trophy wife who isn’t demanding and is good in bed.
This article is the first in a series that looks at the differences in dating in Britain and The United States.
You obviously encountered a like-minded gaggle of girls at this social gathering.
But please don’t make such narrow minded sweeping generalizations about all of us.
I prefer the UK version which was, when I was there: Get drinks, get complimented randomly by cute boy. Meet boy for brunchy things Go home Make decision after.
Versus going to bars, scoping out prey, meeting for drinks then getting passive-aggressive emails. I believe you happened upon one very specific type of NY girl at this dinner Birds of a feather, darling.
I never thought that the cultural background of a dating prospect would make much of a difference when it came to relationships.
