American girl dating french guy
But surely not all American girls thought British men had an endless supply of money?They weren't all obsessed with fame and fortune, were they?This does not happen in American culture, where women rarely make fun of themselves. American family dynamics is still something that remains a bit of a mystery to me.Which brings me to American girlfriend number five, who was paralyzed by her hoards of self-help books. In the UK, girls are open with their parents about sex and dating. Girlfriend number three, who came from a conservative family, would often talk about the importance of transparency and honesty, but would lie to her parents about where she was staying, afraid of what they might think of her.If a bumbling buffoon like Hugh Grant could steal Julia Roberts' heart in , anything was possible.It was the summer of 2006 when I first landed in New York as a 19-year-old, laden with warnings about American girls: they're high maintenance, my friends told me.In Britain, we are self-deprecating to the point where we convince ourselves that we're utterly useless in life.
Sadly, when we were suddenly thrust into a long distance relationship, the reality set in that it was putting too much stress on our careers.There is more emphasis on "keeping up appearances," especially on the West Coast where I have been living for the past six months.Similarly, American girls are much more lavish in their approach to life; and this includes the restaurants and hotels they expect to be taken to.She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
After all, as she put it, "dancers don't make a lot of money." I wasn't the guy that could spoon feed her, so it ended.I've never known a British girl unable to openly talk about who she is sleeping with.
