In Italian we say (roughly translated): “He who begins well is halfway done”. An American girl will show you if she has interest in you, and she won’t be afraid to ask you out. But in Italy, especially for the first date, looks definitely count a lot.
If she says she can’t go when you ask her out for a date, it’s probably true. An Italian girl always wants to know how much you are willing to work for her. American girls pay attention to how they dress, but guys… They’re often deemed as looking acceptable once they meet the minimum standards.
Once you've registered with Elite Singles and taken our extensive personality test, you will start to receive tailored matches based on your personality and partner requirements. Once you've been matched with someone who piques your interest, you can choose one of five communication methods to get the conversation flowing.
And if the sparks are flying, you will naturally want to meet in person. As Melbournians know, this is a city spoiled for choice.
Therefore, either have a friend so you all pair up, or you need an odd number: 1, she is by herself; or 3, so she can spend some time with you because she leaves two friends together.
American girls are much less used to guys being gentlemen — opening the door for the lady, waiting for her to sit before you sit, etc.

The fact that she says no the first time doesn’t mean she can’t go out or doesn’t want to. Now, the third time she says no, she means it (and don’t insist). Italian guys take the same amount of time to get ready as American girls.
It doesn’t take long to get — after all, it’s her number, not a wedding ring. Right away, she wants to have an idea of how hard you are going to work to get her attention. On the one hand, fashion, elegance, and taste are embedded in the Italian culture, so Italian guys don’t even notice they have this going for them.
It's a concept that's brought happiness and long-lasting love to Melbourne singles across the city.
A recent commenter from Australia managed to accomplish both, and I’ve been thinking about what she wrote ever since.
On one level, I totally agreed with her, but there was something about her opinions that just didn’t quite square with my experiences. She didn’t mention her real name, and I wouldn’t reveal it anyway.
For some reason, the most common searches that drive Googlers to my site involve “how to date an Italian.” Actually, many of the keywords that people enter into the search box are not appropriate for me to repeat.
I consider my blog to be rated “R,” but apparently many of you (and you know who you are) are searching for “X-rated” material. However, I love reading the comments on these posts, which are often hilarious and occasionally quite insightful.
