About dating in italy
In Italian we say (roughly translated): “He who begins well is halfway done”. An American girl will show you if she has interest in you, and she won’t be afraid to ask you out. But in Italy, especially for the first date, looks definitely count a lot.
If she says she can’t go when you ask her out for a date, it’s probably true. An Italian girl always wants to know how much you are willing to work for her. American girls pay attention to how they dress, but guys… They’re often deemed as looking acceptable once they meet the minimum standards.
An American girl giving you her phone number means she is considering going out with you. With an Italian girl, you will work hard just to get her phone number. The fact that she says no the first time doesn’t mean she can’t go out or doesn’t want to. Now, the third time she says no, she means it (and don’t insist). Italian guys take the same amount of time to get ready as American girls.
It doesn’t take long to get — after all, it’s her number, not a wedding ring. Right away, she wants to have an idea of how hard you are going to work to get her attention. On the one hand, fashion, elegance, and taste are embedded in the Italian culture, so Italian guys don’t even notice they have this going for them.
Therefore, either have a friend so you all pair up, or you need an odd number: 1, she is by herself; or 3, so she can spend some time with you because she leaves two friends together.
American girls are much less used to guys being gentlemen — opening the door for the lady, waiting for her to sit before you sit, etc.
Don't book your flight just yet because there are some things you should keep in mind before falling for the first Valentino you meet when you step off the plane. Even the ones who aren't blessed with a statuesque figure or a chiseled face know how to put on a show for the ladies.
In Italy, being handsome isn't just an attribute, it's a way of life.
When Italians leave the house for the day, they dress to make a good impression—and they don't disappoint.
For Italian girls, it not only is the ‘cherry on top of the cake’ (as we say in Italy), it is an art you are going to have to master if you want to date an Italian girl.
Every nationality and heritage has its perks, quirks, and flaws, but what about Italian men?
