Dating italian american men
If you enjoyed this article, check out my blog post How to Snag (and Keep) an Italian man About Jasmine Mah Jasmine is a former pharmacist, foodie, and fashionista from Alberta, Canada living the sweet life in Bergamo, Italy.A city girl with a country heart, she currently curates all things fabulous and Italian on her blog Questa Dolce Vita and enjoys drinking wine in her spare time.
Of course, this article is based on my personal experience of being the WAG of a born-and-raised Italian man for the last seven years, and based on discussions with Italian girlfriends of Italian men.
Many Italians have since advised me that it’s best to spell it out in no uncertain terms from the start when you’re not interested, or they might think it’s a game of chase.
My friends and I have often been perplexed to find men thinking they are in after a smile and a brief conversation.
Many will basically pick girls up anywhere, anytime—from asking what book you are reading on the metro, to asking if you know where the wine is in the supermarket, to literally stopping you in the street with a moped (yup, happened).
Many guys will offer a personal tour of the city, which can be quite romantic if you’re into the guy.
Another “old school” point is that Italian men don’t particularly like women who curse frequently; I’ve never heard one bad word come out of my future mother-in-law’s mouth.
