American men dating british women
Most of my adolescent memories involve sitting in the park with my pals, getting shit-faced on a sharing-size bottle of White Ace.
While typing that sentence literally makes me gag now, it proves that we British girls have a pretty high tolerance for alcohol.
Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.
She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
They weren't all obsessed with fame and fortune, were they?
Was American culture really as shallow as my friends had warned? She was a down-to-earth Midwesterner with ambitions in New York City theater.
We like to bring our good friend Alcohol into all of our social activities, and why wouldn’t we?Another guy I went out with had a phobia of nudity.He told me that if he showered he’d have to wear a glove, a hat or a tie.“Meeting people in London was a lot more straightforward,” says Temi, 27, a Brooklynite of two-and-a-half years. The best thing is I’ve met some really cool and interesting people and stayed friends with them.” It takes longer for relationships to get serious in the U.“Being an expat, you don’t have that established group of people to introduce you around.” So Temi turned to online dating. S., she explains, so there are typically no hard feelings if things don’t work out after a few months.
