Date in different countries
The Frenchman can easily invite a girl not only for dinner, but also for breakfast - coffee, rolls, jam. In the order of things and a date during a lunch snack or afternoon snack. Salad plus a glass of wine - simple and tasteful. After that may be followed by an invitation to walk around the city.
About the stinginess of French men, there are jokes. In fact, they can not be called greedy, rather pragmatic and economical. To pay or not to pay for a lady, everyone decides for himself. If you like a girl, then the answer is one - to pay. If you have not decided yet - will offer to split the bill.
The French like to have an elegant companion nearby. Dresses, heels, easy styling - they will notice and appreciate. The French adore beautiful women. And if their interlocutor is of interest to other men - this is only a plus.
In England, “friendly matchmaking” is popular - they are often met here through friends or colleagues. Such meetings are more likely to develop into something serious. Random dating in bars is rarely considered promising. Although, of course, there are exceptions ...
If a man calls and invites a girl on a date (here, as in Russia, it is expected that the man will take the first step), it will most likely take place in a bar. Certainly inexpensive - the British, unlike our men, are not ready to immediately throw the whole world at the feet of a lover. Usually on a first date a man pays for everything. Next is the bill in half.
Dating is traditionally scheduled on weekdays. Friday and Saturday evening - for meetings with friends. At the end of the meeting, the man escorts the girl to the stop of her transport (metro, taxi). Very rarely - to the house.
Unlike English women, local girls do not wait for a call and invitation. If she likes a man, she herself will invite him! He will invite, of course, “for coffee” - on a first date in Germany, something more is unacceptable. They will talk about coffee, weather, films, books, work - neutral topics. Everyone pays for himself. And even when a man and a woman begin to meet, everyone still pays their 50% of the bill. German practicality.
If after this meeting an invitation to a movie or a restaurant follows, then this indicates interest and sympathy. Well, if a man invites you to see you on Saturday night, then he is set for a romantic wave, it is possible that he is in love.
How are dates in Spain and America?
Spaniards are known to be very independent. And on the first date they are not allowed to encroach on their independence. Therefore, men do not even try to hold the door in front of the lady or pay for dinner - they still don’t understand!
First meetings are usually made at a coffee shop or bar. The more crowded, the better. And certainly no luxury restaurants! Before or after visiting the cafe you can take a walk in the park. Or look at the exhibition. Everything should indicate that this is just a friendly meeting. No more. Therefore, everyone gets to the meeting place on his own.
Spanish women don’t dress up: jeans plus a sweatshirt, casual dress. Men, too, are not original.
As for the time of the meeting: if a man invites you to a coffee in the afternoon, then perhaps this is just a friendly meeting. If for dinner - he is interested. If in a night bar - does not exclude the continuation of the evening in a more intimate setting ...
And also in Spain it is not at all customary to give flowers. If the girl herself asks her lover about this, it is possible that he will present her ... a flower in a pot.
The scenario of a typical American date is monotonous: a movie, a concert, or bowling (one thing or another), after dinner in a cafe or a bar. Or vice versa.
Often the first dates are held in pairs or massively: a girl calls friends for a meeting, a husband calls friends. Or even agree to meet at a club party.
Surely, you noticed how in American films a girl after a meeting stops a taxi and leaves. One. So it is: it is not customary to accompany the girl home here. She leaves by taxi or in her car, even if the couple spent the night together. America is an independent country in everything.
