Here, people tend to take a business-like approach to finding a mate. S., within this skeleton format there are certain cultural etiquette differences that you need to know if you’re a Brit trying to snaffle an American partner on their turf.
If your expat game plan includes finding love then you’ll need to wrap your brain around romancing the American way. S.-style dating looks a lot like it does elsewhere: find someone you don’t hate on sight and who you strongly suspect isn’t a serial killer, then arrange to meet for some kind of shared food or beverage experience. It’s like a job or house hunt, which means investigating more than one prospect at a time.Naturally, I’m generalizing, but American women seem more upfront, assertive and opportunistic than their British counterparts.I’ve watched girls in coffee shops and bars, not only surveying man candy from afar but, like lionesses eyeing a fat antelope with a dodgy knee, zoning in and making their intentions known. American men, so I’m told, are more likely to offer to pay for dates and bat away a woman’s wallet.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.Also, American girls often offer to share the bill after a few dates. American girls like flirting, but they’re much more direct.
