Dating american men

”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.

The Shallow Man recently watched an episode of Masterchef USA.

When some of the contestants were told that they were going further in the show, they shouted.

“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.

My advice is just agree with everything his mother says.

So for example, if you’re an expat, and you’re meeting his mother for the first time, and she starts lecturing you about how crap your country is, don’t argue with her.

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.

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.
