Dating a cuban american man needy men in relationships and dating
I can only assume that when anyone asks me what it’s like to date a Brit they’re mostly interested in knowing if their stereotypes are true.
Tea sipping, bad teeth, overly posh speaking guys who all look like James Bond. Even when he banters with his friends and is relentlessly taking the piss out of them, he sounds so dramatic and smart.
” It’s not a common coupling that you’ll see in my hometown.
I remind them that dating a Brit is no different than dating an American because you don’t experience extreme culture shock when visiting their country, and you can understand their language naturally without carrying a translation dictionary (although some people may beg to differ).
To this day, there are still things that Chris and I stumble upon that have different words or phrases in our countries. It will throw me off from time to time in our conversations because naturally my mind has to “translate” his sentence and covert it within seconds before I truly understand what he was talking about.
For example,“Sprinkles” or so we call it in America, edible confetti-like sugar bits in a variety of colour. My family loves it when Chris comes over to visit, especially my young cousin Kacy.
We love each other no differently than if we were from the same country.
But here it’s not uncommon with my family and friends, to just refer to hot apple cider as “cider”. The boys certainly do present themselves better in Britain than the American boys I’ve seen.
I wouldn’t say they are more fashionable than anyone, but I don’t see boys walking around town with their pants hanging off of their butts or wearing over sized sneakers, looking like a clown.
Sometimes the things he says confuses me, like when I ask if he is going to go to bed and he replies “I should do”…. His teeth are not repulsive, and he can certainly hold his liquor better than I ever can!
He is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me, I love my Brit!
But in my opinion there are some subtle differences that do stand out between British guys and American guys, everything is similar but yet also different.
