American women dating italian men
Think carefully before starting a conversation with “three nuns walked into a bar...” Kids In spite of the fact that Italians love kids, they are having fewer children than ever before.
But now that the government has introduced a 'baby bonus' to those who reproduce it might not be long before you start to hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet.
I have only dated one Italian man so I can only answer what he was like. They knew of me early on and tried to guide him and coach him along in the dating process.
Romantic - he wrote songs for me and played them on his guitar, he drew me, he wrote poetry for me, he covered my eyes and led me up the stairs to the back garden to surprise me with the fireflies, he put music on his phone and danced with me through the ancient Roman ruins, he sang to me on our very first date, he said “some day I want to make love to you on the rain” (I didn’t correct him. We met in the rain.), you get the idea…Family oriented - Family is most important especially the women in his life. Carbs - The guy can put away the carbs and maintain the physique of a 20-something. One time he was telling me about his busy day and I commented “I can’t believe it” because I was surprised by all he had done. The bidet is used on a daily basis, but showering and deodorant were not used daily.
I laughed out loud and hard which shocked him into silence. And the pure fresh pressed Mafalda olive oil is the best I have ever tasted. Half of the Italian language is made up of hand gestures.
Sometimes when we are driving I can see him having an entire conversation with himself when he is frustrated with other drivers.
As I stated and said sooo many time ANY italian men in age 16 to 60 loves ANY attractive woman, no matter nationality, age, skin shade and other absurdities.
The problem is to define what it takes to be “attractive” (here things changes considerably from man to man, social class, age, education, region, etc)Anyway starting with a bra cup D there is a lot of convergence on attractiveness degree.
English people take note: ' English humour' is a term Italians often use to describe a joke that just isn't funny.Whereas some women might view their Italian boyfriend's desire to 'protect his woman' a little chauvinistic.High maintenance Let's just say that it's no coincidence that the word 'diva' is an Italian word.I knew things were getting serious when he introduced me to his mother and sisters. Cornetti for breakfast, pasta and bread all day every day. Lost in translation - It can be very tricky managing through the meanings of some words or phrases. He misunderstood it as “I don’t believe it” and basically thought I was calling him a liar. He has since adopted more American grooming habits. We study and learn new things together all the time - history, art, architecture, music, literature, language, poetry, random useless facts. I think Italian men get their clothes washed by the mamma until they marry and then the wife takes over.We have both since learned each other’s languages much better, so if I don’t know what he’s trying to say in English I ask him to say it in Italian and most of the time I understand. That got his dander up and he got defensive and started giving me the Italian tongue lashing - “IF I SAY THIS IS WHAT I DID, THIS IS WHAT I DID, DO YOU THINK I LIE TO YOU? A truer statement might be that I met the only Italian man who doesn’t like to cook. Unilateral decision making - I don’t know if this has anything to do with being an Italian man or if it has to do with the fact that he has been a bachelor for far too long, but it is frustrating when he makes plans or decisions for us without consulting me. He said he is not used to taking anyone else’s opinion into consideration. Proud - When I said something about my love of French wine and cheese he wanted to know what was so special as the French learned everything they know about wine and cheese from the Italians. One time he attempted to do his own laundry and shrunk all of his cashmere sweaters.
