Even the little differences could make a big impact on someone coming from the outside. So how do you know? You become a date explorer that’s how! Keep reading to see how you can have your very own “Date Explorer” dreams come true!
Travel and Dating? Yes Please! Be a Date Explorer!
Every time I travel somewhere new, I love to integrate myself into the culture. One of these ways is to meet the local hotties. Foreign men are always so intriguing. I’m lucky to live in a very multicultural city and country that I am exposed to many different cultures and ways of dating. However, there’s certainly no substitute for experiencing people in their own natural habitat! I find it so fascinating just to people watch and see how they interact AND pick up! In most places I’ve been, men aren’t shy about expressing interest and women aren’t shy about playing the coquette … women LOVE to get their flirt on! In North America we’ve definitely lost the art of the mating game which is why we need to learn from those still playing it.
Dating in many places around the world is very much a public affair. People go out as groups of friends and meet people at public events. This is because it isn’t culturally acceptable to be alone until official intentions are declared. The main objective of dating is marriage and you can forget about sex before marriage (that would decrease your “value”). However, in many western cultures, this isn’t the case. In countries where dating is more socially acceptable, the physicality of dating takes center stage and sexual chemistry is plays a prominent role. If there’s no sexual chemistry, to them, there’s no point in moving forward with someone.
In France, men are quite forward and if they like you then you’re set, no point in beating around the bush or playing hard to get. What a breath of fresh air that would be! Not having to try and figure someone out! In Brazil, apparently it’s all about the kiss and men posturing, displaying their masculinity … sign me up!! In Italy, image is everything, as are traditions, everyone is looking for the ideal (let’s not forget to mention many Italian men are mamma’s boys so if you don’t get mamma’s approval FORGET IT). So many men to explore … so little time!! Time to book my tickets somewhere new … all in the name of research of course!!
