Dating an american guy
Tell her how grateful you are to be living in the denim covered workers paradise, known as Holland.She’ll still despise you, but if you refuse to argue with her, then that will make life so much easier. The Americans love their moms, guns and apple pie, not necessarily in that order. If you ever have to cook for an American, remember, quantity, not quality.
Be warned that I’ll generalize somewhat, so please don’t send me messages saying “BS, my Dutch Lion isn’t anything like you describe in your posts, YOU’RE RACIST!!!To prevent this, follow the advice of one of my readers: One of the big cultural differences between Dutch and American men is how they approach marriage.Dutch men will propose marriage usually only after their partner has had at least one child, preferably two. If you’re lucky, he’ll at least have finished chewing his bitterballen before he says “zal je met me trouwen? Lots of American men have to inflict their warped sense of romance on the unsuspecting and innocent public.” The camera zoomed in on Barb, who was crying, as she knew there was no escape. American marriage proposals are all about the show.Make it as loud and tacky as you possibly can, and always in front of an unwilling audience.”The most romantic Dutch men in the Netherlands live in Ijsselstein. The typical American man will make a proposal that has more corn than Iowa. They’ll go down on one knee in a packed restaurant, or as I saw once at at a football stadium in the USA, an announcement was made.
“Barb, Chuck has a message for you.” Then on the screen in huge letters “WILL YOU MARRY ME?
“Excuse me, thank you, yes please, have a nice day.”I know that a lot of cynical Dutch people find American politeness to be false or fake, but there’s a lot to be said for everyday niceties.
With the advice above, I hope I’ve helped you in understanding some of the key differences between the mother loving Dutch men, and their talented magical American counterparts.
There’s no concept of politeness or chivalry in Dutch society, and speaking with the bluntness of a five year old is positively encouraged, this can lead to some of the following: American men in general are so polite that you almost want to slap them.
Dutch tourists in the USA are able to expand their English vocabulary by learning phrases that they wouldn’t normally use.
Pile that plate high with so much food that it cracks under the strain.
