Dating vs american
An American girl isn’t so much into ‘the chase’ — she generally doesn’t run away for too long, or too far away.
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 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.
If she says she can’t go when you ask her out for a date, it’s probably true. An Italian girl always wants to know how much you are willing to work for her. American girls pay attention to how they dress, but guys… They’re often deemed as looking acceptable once they meet the minimum standards.
A recent report issued by the New York Times weighs in explaining why numbers and formulas are unlikely to help forge the perfect couple.
