Dating male uk
The American men I've dated were (coincidentally) all from DC.
And overall, I found them swaggering, careerist, and utterly terrified of commitment.
” It’s not a common coupling that you’ll see in my hometown.
I remind them that dating a Brit is no different than dating an American because you don’t experience extreme culture shock when visiting their country, and you can understand their language naturally without carrying a translation dictionary (although some people may beg to differ).
We love each other no differently than if we were from the same country.
I am not the only American woman that has the problem, as several of my fellow countrywomen complain of the same thing with the lovely men of these shores. I am not aggressive or pushy or shy or any of the stereotypical things that would turn a man off.
Back home a date that stretched on - by the man's own suggestion, not mine - from drinks, to dinner, to after dinner coffee, with conversation throughout - and then possibly even a good-night kiss would mean he was interested in at least getting to know the woman better! It seems that I can engage in good conversation and emails, even telephone conversations prior to the dates ...
But the trend seems to be that I will let a few days go by, then drop a text or email thanking him for the date - I won't suggest another date myself, as I have been told that is too forward for British men - only to be told "I didn't feel that spark" or something similar. I'm not a supermodel, but I'm also fairly attractive.
I am 5'3" tall with long dark hair and a size 12 - just as pretty and about the same size as most women walking around London. That is the only thing that is starting to make sense, which is of course not helping with the confidence issues developing from all of these first-date only experiences.
