You may not be perfect, British men, but that's exactly why we like you.
North american dating culture
Whether a sign of creeping cultural imperialism or just an excuse to get bladdered on Bud Light and eat undercooked hotdogs, I'm unsure.
However, it's made me think about the differences between us and our pals across the pond.
UK females would prefer a brief coffee date for the first meeting; whereas American women want to be “taken out to a nice dinner” for the first date. American women report eating "healthy", while women in the UK eat "whatever" they please. An international survey from discovered that UK women take the gold medal for splitting the bill 50/50, with a majority (52%) reporting that they offered to pick up the tab on alternating dates — far more often than women in other countries. Singles in Qatar tend to get introduced to a prospective partner over a very civilised tea with their parents, and whilst in the UK we usually have multiple partners before settling down, in Qatar it's also done the other way around, and no one bats an eyelid at polygamy.
Flirting is Brazil's national sport, and diffidence is a total turn off, right from your teenage years.
British chaps would appear to be more old fashioned than their US equivalents, the data reveals.
Apparently UK men are more likely to stick to traditional gender roles and contact a female first, whereas in the US anything goes.
Whereas Russians are fairly old fashioned, men deploy “Noozhy” a form of woo-ing which translates as hand kissing, handbag carrying, and flower giving.
British men get a lot of flack for their dating habits, but I think their laid-back style makes them (perhaps unwittingly) amongst the best seducers in the world. I prefer a love story about a silly, spontaneous meeting, a burned dinner, or a few-drinks-too-many confession of love over the incessant game-playing you'll find elsewhere.
American daters confess to being more romantic, but also found that they care more about money than UK daters.
