English men dating american women
I agree. American woman Niloufar Shafi says British men are way better at dating than Americans heh, heh, this is so good And in our newly post- MeToo world, dating for men understandably takes on an extra layer of anxiety. I moved to London last year to study.
In addition to falling in love with the city, I swooned over its menfolk. It was the attitude shift. I felt a consistently higher level of respect from the men here.
Dating anywhere can be a soul-crushing drudge of going from one lackluster date to the next. These points are based solely on my personal experiences as well as those of female American expat friends in their 30s. But as far as the male populace of the Big Apple goes, you guys are way ahead of the game.
He asked me out for our second date a day after we met. A day after that, we were at dinner.
He showed me men here refrain from playing games. Waiting several days before asking a woman out again is a common, and maddening, ploy used by New Yorkers even in their late 30s.
Katherine, another expat New Yorker, agrees. New Yorkers are notorious for burning the candle at both ends. Here a couple of guys profusely apologised to me when they needed to schedule a date for 8PM, which in New York is prime going out hour.
Plus, men here earnestly pursue hobbies, whether its rock climbing or painting, giving their minds a rest from the whirlwind of work. I appreciate that Brits are ambitious but make their personal lives an equal priority.
"you guys are way ahead of the game."
To my surprise, he ended up agreeing with me in the end. It was refreshing to have such an honest chat. He came at the argument with an open mind rather than stubbornness and truly listened to what I had to say. That allows for a real connection to blossom.
One finds plenty of gentlemen in New York, but the idea here goes beyond opening doors and pulling out chairs. Too many men in New York live in perpetual university mode.
I find that the frat boy mentality has generally subsided in Londoners. What girl could resist that?
