United states dating norms
Americans, on the other hand, can feel a lot more lost in the crowd of a huge, diverse population and thus are more likely to commit to someone without making it the search for the Holy Grail.This is exactly the problem that Europeans face, they make finding a partner an endless quest that resembles the quest of the grail, over complicating their lives and sometimes missing out on necessary learning experiences of short-term failed relationships.It felt almost as though each person played their role in the perfect relationship, but could easily repeat it the following week with somebody else.This leads me to my next point, of commitment not being the serious part of the relationship.Time Despite their informality in other aspects of life, Americans are very concerned about time.Punctuality is very important, and it is considered rude to be late.
If you know you are going to be late for an appointment, you should call and give an explanation.But then again, Americans tend to dress up less often and like wearing their sneakers and sweatpants everywhere without ever being judged, a level of a relaxed attitude I would sometimes like to see in my own country.But aside from visual aspects, girls in the States expect to live their lives like Barbie in her dreamhouse, with her super-manly successful boyfriend. But while these expectations are high, I often find that putting guys on a pedestal and doing anything in order to get their attention is a big part of getting to this ultimate goal.In Europe, on the other hand, not many people are ever in a relationship, but if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend, it actually means something and will probably last for a while.That's also the reason why Europeans are notoriously single and complaining about it.
Love is found, and dismissed, very casually and almost according to the preferences of the particular day.
