Dating American guys has always had it’s appeal – here are some top tips to ensure dating them is a breeze.
If you aren’t American yourself, you’ll probably find yourself worrying about what you may have in common with American guys that you are interested in dating. It is important to find some common ground, some similarities that you can use to build a conversation and possibly the foundations of a relationship upon.
Many American men have quite a casual approach to fashion and usually quite a big interest in sports – they may also have some major college pride depending on which they attended and the sport’s prestige that they have there. Finding out the interests of your potential suitor and working out whether you share any can avoid any awkwardness later on.
Dating guys, in general, can be quite confusing but it is important to know where you stand in these confusing situations. In the US, men tend to be more direct in their approach in regards to dating and will be more forthright with their opinion about what they expect.
Dinner dates may also be something to think about – most American men are quite chivalrous and value the women they are dating, equality is also a major player in the dating world and you shouldn’t necessarily be expecting your date to foot the bill completely – women are earning just as much in the workplace if not more and it is important to know where you stand in these situations.
The dating scene is very big in the United States and you cannot always expect the men you are dating to be exclusively dating you – this is a major conversation which should be had before you let things get too serious. If you are keen to keep your options too, then perhaps being non-exclusive will work for the two of you. Some American guys may be interested in dating exclusively but it is important not to expect it of them as you could be sorely disappointed.
Different countries and different cultures will have different approaches to dating so it is important not to compare how people date from one country to the next. Whilst you may be used to dating European or perhaps Asian guys, American guys will have an entirely different approach to dating just because of where they were born and raised. As the quote says, ‘comparison is the thief of joy’ and comparing different people too much could lead to you over thinking and not enjoying yourself.
The most important thing to remember when dating any guy, whether American or otherwise, is to ensure that you have fun. Dating is meant to be enjoyable so you want to be sure you are having a good time otherwise there is no point to dating at all. Making sure you do not compare men, find some common ground and aren’t expecting too much or too little is key to enjoying yourself when dating guys from the US.
