Russian dating vs american dating
Americans (and maybe other people, but, yeah, mostly Americans) tend to date just to date for the heck of it in the beginning.
I’m not saying we want him to, but at this point of our lives we don’t have to worry about him being in a nursing home, etc. Whenever we get around to having kids (it’s on our to-do list, right under “buy milk” and “return library books”) we’re not going to be in our thirties (we hope). Other people have written about this, including Penelope Trunk (whom, as you may recall, I disapproved of earlier, but I completely agree with her on this one.) Also, even though I’m pretty big on feminism and choice, etc, it’s not good for female biology, no matter how you slice it.
It's your first date, she's not comfortable with you coming to pick her up.
European girl: A European girl will probably expect you to come and pick her up.
I remember listening to one This American Life where the parents of the narrator divorced and got remarried because A)they had changed for the better and B) they decided that they didn’t want to start explaining themselves to someone else later in life when they had shared their youth.
Remarriage to your same partner: not highly recommended for everyone, but I can see the point.
American girl: She might suggest to share a plate...
We should do it again soon :)"European girl: You won't hear back from a European girl unless you text her first.American girl: She might suggest a few restaurant options to choose from and let you know if she's vegan or is allergic to certain things.
