In the UK, girls are open with their parents about sex and dating. Girlfriend number three, who came from a conservative family, would often talk about the importance of transparency and honesty, but would lie to her parents about where she was staying, afraid of what they might think of her.I've never known a British girl unable to openly talk about who she is sleeping with.Since then, I've spent six years dating American women in the search for "the one".They have come from all different backgrounds, worked in vastly different careers, lived in both New York and Los Angeles; and if there's one thing I can tell you, it's that the stereotype of British girls being more well-mannered is actually false.I've always loved this approach: under-sell, over deliver.This does not happen in American culture, where women rarely make fun of themselves.
She was the antithesis of the ballerina; insisting she pave her own journey in life, irrespective of who she was with.
I remember one girl I went out with from the UK whose mother knew all of her intimate details.
It was a bit embarrassing when I finally met her, but hey, better be honest than conceal the truth?
British girls, meanwhile, do not spend the same amount of money on themselves as American girls, nor do they expect you to spend a lot on them.
In Britain, we are self-deprecating to the point where we convince ourselves that we're utterly useless in life.
