Girls dating in europe
Untouched by hyper religious politics and America’s still lingering “frontier” cultural hangover, they seem more worldly and cosmopolitan.
For an American, dating a European woman offers some interesting advantages:• Sense of style: I grew up in the midwest, so until college I thought sweat pants were appropriate “going out” attire.
I never thought that the cultural background of a dating prospect would make much of a difference when it came to relationships.
However, since living in New York, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many different people from various backgrounds and it’s become clear that there are definite cultural norms specific to European men versus American men (especially New Yorkers).
My European girlfriend knows good food, and loves good restaurants. European women are used to generations of men who consume two baguettes a day and with American women until I had a German girlfriend.
She wouldn’t be caught dead in line at Burger King, or Quick, depending on which continent she finds herself on.• Used to men who aren’t fit: When I first got to europe, after wrestling in high school and doing mixed martial arts in college, my forearms were larger than some European men’s thighs. Again, I grew up in the Midwest, where we’ve been raised to consider what the wedding will be like before we’ve even paid for dinner on our first date. This said, without having a looming religious culture surrounding their formative years, European women don’t seem to have so much shame surrounding their sexual feelings.
They grow up developing friendships with the opposite sex and in turn, develop more empathy and understanding of the opposite sex.
In American culture, there is a clear segregation of the sexes, boys play with boys and do boy things and girls do the same.
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.The message from older generations of feminists isn’t “we strove to break the boundaries so you can be what you want to be” it’s “we strove to break the boundaries so you be what you want to be.”I want to again reiterate that this needed to happen; the social inequality that existed between sexes left to us by the 19th century needed to change.It’s I think prudent to note that at the same as this is liberating to women, it could also be obligating.Despite this, I’ve worked a bit in the fashion industry and feel that European women have a better handle on dressing than Americans.Dark colors, leggings, heels, and the conspicuously absence of the Ugg boots and Denali jacket combo.
