Many Israelis believe in spontaneity, and rarely choose to make plans far into the future. Although it might be tempting to make plans immediately after meeting a guy, try to be patient–chances are he will call or text.
If he asks you to drinks in a few hours, embrace the spontaneity and say yes!
American culture raises children to be fiercely independent and to look out for ‘number one’.
This breeds a generation of men who have habits of looking after their own needs versus the needs of the collective. Europeans don’t get their sexual education from porn. European men have a different perception of beauty.
The types of dates seen in movies – the formal ask, the fancy dinner and the entire dance that ensues simply doesn’t exist in the European mindset, in fact, the word “dating” isn’t even a part of their lexicon. Unlike American culture, where there’s almost a rite of passage which takes two people from “hooking up” to “seeing each other” to “dating” to “exclusive”, these labels just aren’t a focus or concern for European men. Rather, the mentality is, “I like you, I want to see you, and if it’s enjoyable, let’s keep seeing each other”.
Sure, they will go out for dinner and do fun activities, but it’s not packaged up in a formal and contrived manner. It’s more organic and instead of defining the relationship in order to know how to act, they let the relationship unfold and the label of boyfriend/girlfriend just naturally develops in the process. European men are comfortable with women, which leads to respect for women.
Living abroad in another country is hard, especially when you have to adjust to cultural differences.
One of the major differences I found between life in Israel verses that in America is the dating culture.
I’m not to judge that one is better than the other, and mind you, my observations are based on my own experiences as well as a group of women I’ve interviewed in the last two years.In American culture, there is a clear segregation of the sexes, boys play with boys and do boy things and girls do the same.Then these boys grow up and are exposed to the opposite sex in an abrupt, often sexualized way. This is definitely seen in how they treat not only women, but everyone around them.We must be aware of our own behavior in the dating game, because we are active participants in how we are treated.We must take a look at who we are drawn to in the first place, and why.
