America american dating culture
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.
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.
But I think it just made the whole thing fun, cool and memorable.My friends were so surprised that at 24 years old I had never had a real Valentine’s Day, but I am pretty sure I am not alone (please LEAVE COMMENTS below if this year was also your first V-Day! Last Valentine’s Day, my friend told me not to be sad that I didn’t have anyone to celebrate with - when the time is right, it will exceed all your expectations. So let’s go back to talking about the big V-Day date, and chatting about some points that I think are interesting to share.Having "the talk"Before V-Day this year, my boyfriend and I had been dating for a couple of months, and we were right at the point of “defining the relationship.” We had a big, formal talk over dinner one night to discuss where we were in this relationship and where it should be going, and this talk basically determined if we would celebrate Valentine’s Day together. Well, the first Valentine’s Day I actually got to celebrate, anyway. for two years now, I have been experienced many firsts, but none of them compare to the first I experienced last week - my first Valentine’s Day.
