I find this in general, making friends as well. Why don't you watch the Dan Savage video link in comment. Dating in Europe vs. It's more cultural than an actual objective reality. This is because Sunday lunch can last for four hours followed by a walk. But I think those opinions are shared by a lot of redditors. European men are hot blooded and passionate about life, love, politics, economy, family, sports, and their interests.
I spent 28 years there until 3 weeks ago, and I disagree entirely.
Dating A European Girl VS Dating An American Girl
Dating in America vs. Always the same pattern. Mostly this is based on my experiences but some is based off of what I've 'seen'. I think it has very little to do with gender and much more to do with social groups and individuals. Americans, even professional, intelligent, mature adults, seem to find this juvenile practice necessary in today's world.
