British vs american dating culture

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.

Since then, I've spent six years dating American women in the search for "the one".

They have come from all different backgrounds, worked in vastly different careers, lived in both New York and Los Angeles; and if there's one thing I can tell you, it's that the stereotype of British girls being more well-mannered is actually false.

If a bumbling buffoon like Hugh Grant could steal Julia Roberts' heart in It was the summer of 2006 when I first landed in New York as a 19-year-old, laden with warnings about American girls: they're high maintenance, my friends told me.

I've never known a British girl unable to openly talk about who she is sleeping with.

On the contrary, British girls have no shame picking kale salad out of their teeth on a date.

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.

American girls—in my experience—carry themselves elegantly; sometimes so much so that it feels rehearsed.
