British dating style
And while American girls find it hard to be upfront about their dating lives to parents, they are, somewhat confusingly, incredibly forward on dates when it comes to sex.
On my first date with girlfriend number six, we went dancing before playing bocce in Brooklyn.
The American, with seemingly impeccable etiquette, ate slowly and cautiously, ensuring the kale salad she was munching on didn't wrap around her big, pearly white teeth.
On the contrary, British girls have no shame picking kale salad out of their teeth on a date.
But surely not all American girls thought British men had an endless supply of money?
They weren't all obsessed with fame and fortune, were they?
Was American culture really as shallow as my friends had warned? She was a down-to-earth Midwesterner with ambitions in New York City theater.
She shattered any preconceived notion I had about both actors and American women.
The Brit eerily reminded me of myself—she ate quickly, washed her food down with beer, and generally wasn't too concerned about how she might look to the outside world, let alone me.In Britain, we are self-deprecating to the point where we convince ourselves that we're utterly useless in life.
