Dating customs in usa
An American girl giving you her phone number means she is considering going out with you. With an Italian girl, you will work hard just to get her phone number. The fact that she says no the first time doesn’t mean she can’t go out or doesn’t want to. Now, the third time she says no, she means it (and don’t insist). Italian guys take the same amount of time to get ready as American girls.It doesn’t take long to get — after all, it’s her number, not a wedding ring. Right away, she wants to have an idea of how hard you are going to work to get her attention. On the one hand, fashion, elegance, and taste are embedded in the Italian culture, so Italian guys don’t even notice they have this going for them.
In America, it really depends on the person but I have never experienced this type of initiation.This sounds a bit creepy but it’s not so much telling someone you love them but rather the Japanese way of letting them know you like them and asking them out.One thing that is very different in Japan is that it is not uncommon for a woman to ask a man out.I did have a Japanese boyfriend but I ended things with him to go to school in California.Unlike Japan, California is a true melting pot of cultures but since I had so little dating experience back home, I was nervous about getting into the dating scene in America.She might even ditch her friend for half the night, depending how interested in you she is.
An Italian girl would never leave her friend alone.
In Japan, women can confess their love so it’s not strange if we ask a man out but in America, it seems that women tend to wait for men to ask them out.
This was a little strange to me because I wasn’t sure what to do if I was really into someone.
I have to confess that I had a crush on a boy in junior high and my friends forced me to do the kokuhaku ritual.
Unfortunately it doesn’t always work out as the boy wasn’t interested in me.
In Italian we say (roughly translated): “He who begins well is halfway done”. An American girl will show you if she has interest in you, and she won’t be afraid to ask you out. But in Italy, especially for the first date, looks definitely count a lot.
