From my observations on the scene, it’s because the United States is a richer country, and there’s FAR more food temptation everywhere. Going to a place like Mc Donald’s may be a once a week treat for a girl.
Grocery stores are also very small there, and there isn’t much junk food selection whatsoever. women can afford to spend time and money on fitness and dress.
But aside from visual aspects, girls in the States expect to live their lives like Barbie in her dreamhouse, with her super-manly successful boyfriend. But while these expectations are high, I often find that putting guys on a pedestal and doing anything in order to get their attention is a big part of getting to this ultimate goal.
In America, guys get to be cool players who are allowed to switch between different pretty girl-toys who will simply obey their preferences.
" The answer to this question is always yes, says my friend who lives in Paris.
"But, of course," he goes on, over a scrumptious lunch of stuffed roast lamb with wild mushrooms at Maxim's, "Europeans know better than ever to ask that question.
The American "system (if we may call it anything so formal as that) is the romantic's way and the European is the classicist's.
The roar of outrage that greeted Shere Hite's assertion that 70 percent of American wives married more than five years are unfaithful just goes to show how against American values this notion of "open" marriage is: Americans idealistically imagine their marriages closed.
According to "France Today," French singles primarily spend time in groups as friends.Given the size of Europe and the many different countries that exist within its borders, the dating customs from country to country vary.While in some countries the typical American idea of dating, whereby two people exclusively see each other and others know about it, does exist, it is not prevalent in all societies.Specifically, I mean women from cities like Zagreb, Croatia and Belgrade, Serbia and Krakow, Poland and Kiev, Ukraine. The lesser attractive 50% (bottom half) of Eastern European girls are hotter and more attractive than the lesser attractive 50% (bottom half) of American girls.The bottom half of American girls are generally fat and out of shape.Well, for one, it has obvious, superficial reasons, such as the typically super-white teeth and perfectly groomed appearances that Americans tend to have compared to their more natural-yet-not-necessarily-better-looking European counterparts.But then again, Americans tend to dress up less often and like wearing their sneakers and sweatpants everywhere without ever being judged, a level of a relaxed attitude I would sometimes like to see in my own country.But the having and growing of children, gardens, libraries, and art collections seem to demand something more permanent than romantic love allows.And now I, too, am beginning to wonder whether the European way isn't more pragmatic, more intelligent, finally more durable.It is just assumed that monogamy is rare, if not impossible, among lively people, and the question never comes up."Whether my friend's observation is true or not (for I have many European friends who do seem to care deeply about their mate's fidelity), it certainly does seem that Europeans see marriage differently than Americans do.Marriage is for stability, friendship, children; love is for the adrenaline highs and lows of sexual madness, the romance of being appreciated by anew person, the joys of flirting, pursuing, and clandestine coupling.
