And there are some gorgeous Italian men, believe me.But I am an American girl and I am comfortable admitting that I am out of my depth when dealing with Italian men.Italians have a very particular way of doing things.They are proud of their heritage and love their home country. This may also be what makes Italian men so self-assured when approaching foreign women.

Therefore, either have a friend so you all pair up, or you need an odd number: 1, she is by herself; or 3, so she can spend some time with you because she leaves two friends together.American girls are much less used to guys being gentlemen — opening the door for the lady, waiting for her to sit before you sit, etc.
When I told him that I liked him but he was putting too much pressure on me he gave me the cold shoulder, which was the breaking point for me.*Please forgive me for getting on my dating soapbox, but I feel like I have to say this: Ladies, if anyone ever tries to emotionally punish you for knowing and maintaining your boundaries RUN AWAY. I am sure stuff like this happens with men in every country, but it feels somehow exaggerated here in Italy. A man that doesn’t respect your boundaries will always be trouble. My grasp of Italian is not great, but I am pretty sure he told me that the bracelet he gave me for good luck would now bring me bad luck. I can fully admit that I have a dramatic streak and I do like a little flair in a relationship, but shenanigans like this make me yearn for the kind of courtships you find in Jane Austen novels. They turned out to to be cousins and the guy was very cute in an older, rugged kind of way. Kind of makes a mockery of the sentiment, you know?We talked for a little while and then the cute rugged guy asked me to dance. I said yes and before I knew it a party had exploded around us and everyone was dancing. By the end of the night he had slipped his bracelet onto my wrist and we’d made plans to meet the next day, and then the next weekend, and so on. I would also like to point out that I barely speak enough Italian to make myself understood and he speaks no english, so there is a very real limit to how much we can communicate with each other.Also, American girls often offer to share the bill after a few dates. American girls like flirting, but they’re much more direct.
