Dating with man from europe
Untouched by hyper religious politics and America’s still lingering “frontier” cultural hangover, they seem more worldly and cosmopolitan.
It’s I think prudent to note that at the same as this is liberating to women, it could also be obligating.
It is just assumed that monogamy is rare, if not impossible, among lively people, and the question never comes up." Whether my friend's observation is true or not (for I have many European friends who do seem to care deeply about their mate's fidelity), it certainly does seem that Europeans see marriage differently than Americans do.
Marriage is for stability, friendship, children; love is for the adrenaline highs and lows of sexual madness, the romance of being appreciated by anew person, the joys of flirting, pursuing, and clandestine coupling.
But the having and growing of children, gardens, libraries, and art collections seem to demand something more permanent than romantic love allows.
And now I, too, am beginning to wonder whether the European way isn't more pragmatic, more intelligent, finally more durable.
