Ben and Becca recently spoke to News Feed about their website and America's obsession with Will, Kate and the whole royal affair. Judging from the scores of New York women who turned up last Saturday at an East Village pub called Central Bar to watch the United States play England in the World Cup tournament , the reputation of British men remains unsullied. This undoubtedly says more about the type of men I go for than it does about North American blokes as a whole.But I cannot tell you how often I hear the same from British women.Whether a sign of creeping cultural imperialism or just an excuse to get bladdered on Bud Light and eat undercooked hotdogs, I'm unsure.However, it's made me think about the differences between us and our pals across the pond.UK daters want to relax at home on a Saturday night, and are more willing to meet in person right away than US daters, which suggests we trust our instincts and don't like to waste too much time with all that online back-and-forth.We're also more willing to date outside our preferred body type. Of course, courtship rituals differ across the world, in China the women don't so much flirt as “Sajiao” ("unleash coquettishness") which signals a man should treat her like a princess if he is hoping to date her.
On the back of every pub toilet door (and believe me, I spend a lot of time in pub toilets) there seems to be a flyer for their 4th of July piss-up.
Whereas Russians are fairly old fashioned, men deploy “Noozhy” a form of woo-ing which translates as hand kissing, handbag carrying, and flower giving.
British men get a lot of flack for their dating habits, but I think their laid-back style makes them (perhaps unwittingly) amongst the best seducers in the world. I prefer a love story about a silly, spontaneous meeting, a burned dinner, or a few-drinks-too-many confession of love over the incessant game-playing you'll find elsewhere.
Global data from online dating site has identified some of the major contradictions.
Some are subtle, like how women in the US are half an inch taller on average, but others are more significant.
