Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.
She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
But to generalise these assumptions, and often stereotypes, to the whole American population is unfair.
Chelsea and I have been dating for a year and a half now, and it has been the most exhilarating, wonderful, exciting and special year and a half of my life.
As a young, single British guy crossing the Atlantic for a career in the United States, I was extremely curious about the dating life that was in store.
After all, I'd watched my fellow countrymen in film and literature charm the hell out of beautiful American women.

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.
But, in my experience, this does not hold true at all.
"I really appreciate my boyfriend's ability to get dressed without it being a huge competition for the mirror.
Italian men are worse than women and the whole place winds up smelling like their cologne." "I am sorry, but guys at home in France are so annoyingly into themselves. OK, good to know." "American women are not 'easier' than other women, but I would say they are way more comfortable flirting and being sexual than a lot of women in Europe.
