British culture dating
He may not be particularly open immediately (the British like their privacy) but he isn’t convinced that he has to lie or exaggerate to impress you. The EM is incredibly witty, although it took me quite some time to understand his British references. Despite our shared language, the difference between the American and the British way of life varies greatly. When my new Englishman, whom I shall call EM (brilliant, I know), used the word cunt a few months ago, I was floored.I’ve been struck very recently by the charm of an Englishman, and if any of you have had the pleasure of meeting one, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that they’re different from our American counterparts. It mean something quite different from our use of cunt here. His explanation went as follows, “The C word in Britain [is] usually associated with people that jubilate in the inane or irrelevant (usually accompanied with undue self-importance).As Alycia Smith-Howard says it, getting to know an Englishman is, “A seduction of the mind.” But if you do a quick Google search on the matter, you’ll find scant information online relating to relationships between American women and British men.Or, you’ll find plenty of American women insulting British men for their “stiff upper lip” and lack of asking out a woman, or footing the bill.We just don’t use words such as jubilate or inane in conversations here.I am an English major, and something like that can turn me on instantly.And the idea that love might be a childish matter is almost heresy in the American bible of the heart. for girls to date or get to know several guys at once; whereas, in other countries, that’s considered rude or heartless. That was something I learned to do from the men here in America and just as I was supposed to accept their behavior, I guess I picked up that habit.We American women apparently treat first dates as job interviews. It wasn’t until recently (yesterday) that I realized dating customs vary so greatly. And of course there’s the tradition where American women (still) think men should do all the asking, and all the calling.
”British people don’t seem to ask each other on dates,” she fretted.When you wake up, you must serve them fellatio and then find your own ride home.With an Englishman, although he may be feeling the same cave man lack of control, he subdues it (at least to you) and romances you. Generally speaking, the more florid the declaration of love, the worse the bounder behind it.They never go into darkened rooms with almost total strangers until and unless it has been thoroughly checked out by a real estate agent, a trusted girlfriend and, probably, an expert in feng shui.
The only fluttered consciousness they’ll experience is if you cannot agree to split the bill, I mean ‘check’.Not to mention, if we misunderstand their culture we jump to a negative (and brash) conclusion. Looking past the popular, sexy accent though, is an individual who’s not just charming for the sake of being charming. It’s a well crafted line that he gives you, intended to make you laugh.
