That’s also the reason why Europeans are notoriously single and complaining about it.
Europeans are a lot less likely to just date anyone in order to see how it goes, but will always find some minor detail to be a horrible, insurmountable flaw in the other person.
From my experience at an American university, I understand that dating in the U. is a lot more spontaneous and relies a lot less on checking every detail about the other person.
Love is found, and dismissed, very casually and almost according to the preferences of the particular day.
On the inside, however, they will be really happy they were actually able to nail each other down after the endless confusion and unnecessary drama along the way.
So why does this difference even exist, or is it just a slightly different packaging of basically the same feelings?
For the most part, Italian funeral traditions are consistent with the Catholicism as it is the major religion of Italy.
Many Italians do not speak of the dead once the period of mourning is over, as they do not wish to summons them back to earth.
After making their own lives very complicated, if a European actually manages to attain a relationship, you often will not even know how to spot it.
When the members of the couple are out and about, they will probably not mention their partner very often or obsess about them (of course, there are always exceptions) and will not be super-touchy and obvious in public when they are together.
Well, for one, it has obvious, superficial reasons, such as the typically super-white teeth and perfectly groomed appearances that Americans tend to have compared to their more natural-yet-not-necessarily-better-looking European counterparts.
But then again, Americans tend to dress up less often and like wearing their sneakers and sweatpants everywhere without ever being judged, a level of a relaxed attitude I would sometimes like to see in my own country.It’s like there is a constant trial-and-error going on in order to find out who you can actually see yourself with.
