“Dating an Italian is intoxicating in a good way, it’s so easy to get caught up in their passionate natures and endearing accents, just make sure to not completely lose your head and make sure it’s the real deal and not a novelty because past the ‘honeymoon’ phase, the ‘fascino’ of dating someone from a totally different culture tends to fade to the background of everyday life.

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.

I think there are two kinds of men, one that thinks this is not macho and doesn’t like it, and one that really likes it. Italy had protest and revolutions in the ‘60s, just as they did in the USA and U. Particularly in the south, you would hear people say about Berlusconi, “He had a lot of women and that’s good!
