Now, when I discuss the differences between European and American, I’m referring to a mindset. American men on the other hand, tend to be goal oriented, with the aim of getting laid.
You can very well be born in America but have a more “European” mindset and vice versa. Perhaps this ‘score mentality’ is for bragging rights, perhaps it’s for validation so they can feel wanted and desired, or perhaps it’s a pure ego play.
Most first meetings in Germany are characterized by a great degree of reserve.In order to describe German customs and social interactions, intercultural consultants like comparing Germans to coconuts.Both have a hard exterior shell, which may take some time to crack, but are soft and sweet on the inside.In Australia and Europe, relationships often come out of groups of friends, which I’d assume equals #instantapproval. One of my buddies took a girl he was dating for only two weeks on a family vacation, and we’ve laughed about it ever since. But why do we generally wait so long to bring her home? The underlying reason we bring her home to meet the parents is to get their approval for possible marriage. Not only do immediate family members stay close, but distant relatives do as well.Asking her father is respectful and practical because you will be spending ample time with him. Even if the father doesn’t approve, your hands are clean, and you’ve at least done your part.
