I am an American that has lived and worked in London for just over four years as a literary agent.In the US I was very successful with men, but here it seems that though I have long dates that go on for hours with laughter, interesting conversation, and sometimes even a kiss, the men never want to see me again!There are no set of rules that everybody knows and interprets in the same way -except that women are expected to buy rounds of drinks same as the men, and they should offer to split the bill at a restaurant.Also British men are shy and they expect women to take the initiative, so a mere kiss goodnight could be interpreted as quite dismissive.Thus far I have had 2 "First Date Wonder" experiences with Parship and tonight I have a date scheduled that I am rather hopeful about... Any advice that you could offer would be much appreciated.Sincerely, Jenny I don't think your appearance is the issue at all.
The man paying for everything isn’t as cultural here.
The best rule of thumb is that whoever planned the date, who asked who out, is the one that will be paying for that date.
And if you are drinking at a pub, be prepared to take turns buying the round.
Sometimes it makes me feel silly because I seem so over enthusiastic and loud.
I am in my first month of membership with Parship, but I have tried several other online dating sites previously.
