updating maps on nuvi - Europe and north american dating

European girl: A European girl is more likely to let you decide where you want to take her out for dinner.

You have American girl: She might suggest to meet up directly at the restaurant.

American men will rush to get you in bed as quick as possible, while European men don’t appear to have the same rush (or desperation). European men don’t ‘date’ – in the formal way that Americans are used to.

The types of dates seen in movies – the formal ask, the fancy dinner and the entire dance that ensues simply doesn’t exist in the European mindset, in fact, the word “dating” isn’t even a part of their lexicon. Unlike American culture, where there’s almost a rite of passage which takes two people from “hooking up” to “seeing each other” to “dating” to “exclusive”, these labels just aren’t a focus or concern for European men. Rather, the mentality is, “I like you, I want to see you, and if it’s enjoyable, let’s keep seeing each other”.

American girl: She might suggest to share a plate...

she can also order a full hearty meal, like steak and fries.

Also in Europe, women don't expect guys to pay for the dates, in general "daters" split the bill or each of them offers politely to pay.

Eastern Europe is different though, guys are almost always supposed to pay, lots of awesome women but lots of gold-diggers too As for the rest I don't see any major differences... There are times I've gone out with a guy, had a connection with him and then he's indicated that he's seeing other women.

Now, when I discuss the differences between European and American, I’m referring to a mindset. American men on the other hand, tend to be goal oriented, with the aim of getting laid.

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.

There's a good chance I'll soon be moving to Europe for a couple of years for work.
