Dating american boy best dating sites australia
I tried to brush this off—preconceptions are always dangerous when entering any sort of relationship.
Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.
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.
She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
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.
It was a night full of spontaneity, which American girls—naturally outgoing and vivacious—have perfected.
They know how to have a good time wherever they are, with a zest for life uncommon in 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.
I've never known a British girl unable to openly talk about who she is sleeping with.
I remember one girl I went out with from the UK whose mother knew all of her intimate details.
So with a heavy heart, it was the end of a fairytale love affair.
Since then, I've spent six years dating American women in the search for "the one".
