Dating a british man
I completely disagree with the idea that suggesting a second date would seem 'too forward' I suspect it may often be the only way to get anywhere.The absence of a 'spark' that you mentioned could be because they interpret your behaviour as cool or uptight (how's that for reversing stereotypes? Also, because 'dating' is not part of British culture, a lot of men view dates as a one-off interview and if by the end of it they don't think they will fall in love you, or sleep with you they don't see any point in asking you out again.But the trend seems to be that I will let a few days go by, then drop a text or email thanking him for the date - I won't suggest another date myself, as I have been told that is too forward for British men - only to be told "I didn't feel that spark" or something similar. I'm not a supermodel, but I'm also fairly attractive.I am 5'3" tall with long dark hair and a size 12 - just as pretty and about the same size as most women walking around London. That is the only thing that is starting to make sense, which is of course not helping with the confidence issues developing from all of these first-date only experiences.Also British men are shy and they expect women to take the initiative, so a mere kiss goodnight could be interpreted as quite dismissive.British men are also less sexist than most other men and less likely to jump to conclusions about women being 'easy'.
Here are 6 things you should know before you date a British guy. Even though Britain is a small country, there are lots of varied accents that you may encounter – and most of them are difficult to understand.It could also be that while you are excellent company when you are with your friends, when you are on a date you are nervous and behave quite differently.This is obviously true for everyone but it may be more true for you, especially if you feel that you are being unsuccessful. Any chance that the men you date have an inflated opinion of themselves?Most people go out in groups in pubs and bars and when somebody is attracted to someone, they stay behind together and chat, eventually someone plucks up the courage to kiss the other one (usually this phase is aided by copious amount of alcohol, so that if rejected they can explain themselves by saying they were drunk), and after this happens a few times they call themselves a couple.I realise this may be hard to believe but if you ask any British women who have been in a serious relationship for the last 4-5 years they'll tell you -most people don't remember ever having been on a date and certainly not more than one or two.
