Stereotypes dating british men
The American way is loud and even arrogant at times. Call it the revolving door or hedging – there’s the idea in the American approach to dating that there’s always something better around the corner.
With European men, if there’s mutual interest, they keep seeing that person and don’t keep hunting for better options simultaneously. Nor will they freak out when discussions of commitment or future come up.
If that’s a stereotype, I hope it’s one they’re happy to bear.
So when Date British approached me about writing this post, I said, absolutely.
I’m not to judge that one is better than the other, and mind you, my observations are based on my own experiences as well as a group of women I’ve interviewed in the last two years.
The below is a list of some of the themes and commonalities observed.
In American culture, there is a clear segregation of the sexes, boys play with boys and do boy things and girls do the same.
One particular Brit has a fondness for Texan girls. American women in particular, are a lot more open compared to their British counterparts (especially English girls).
You may think you may not even have an accent, but you totally do, and they find it delightful. That isn’t to say that all English women are closed-off; it’s just that American women have a certain breezy, carefree “my life is an open book” way of living. British men love that we’re more than willing to “go there” and call out what needs calling out.
(Of course, it should be noted that all men are different — as are women — and results may vary.) 10.) Your accent!
That’s right, the accent adoration is a two-way street.
Then these boys grow up and are exposed to the opposite sex in an abrupt, often sexualized way. This is definitely seen in how they treat not only women, but everyone around them.
