Americans dating in london
In the US I was very successful with men, but here it seems that though I have long dates that go on for hours with laughter, interesting conversation, and sometimes even a kiss, the men never want to see me again!
She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
When suggesting when asked out that we meet for coffee I was told that is so American. For guys last call at the pub means last chance to talk to a girl before you get chucked out and have to go home alone. They want a rich, successful, beautiful, smart trophy wife who isn’t demanding and is good in bed.
They tend to get drunk, sleep together, then ask the girl out for dinner…. Unless it is last call (and/or 8 pints later) British guys are not likely to approach you. They expect her to meet a man who is rich (family money), doctor or phd in hard science/maths, and Chinese. Your description of the English way of dating is so true!!
I have had several long term relationships and, if one were to judge the number of contacts made and dates gone on, then I've been rather "successful" with the internet dating.
I am an American that has lived and worked in London for just over four years as a literary agent.
