As we all know (and as I’ve often vented about here) dating in New York is not easy. And it appears we’re not the only ones mourning the death of the old fashioned phone call. It seems Australians love texting and chatting before going on the date: only irritating but also more than likely, it can create confusion. There is this little thing that makes communication fully functional. Sarcasm is just not the same and you often wonder does ‘LOL’ really mean they are “laughing out loud”? I must agree with this post about Australian men and their very confusing behaviours. Sounds like you’ve either met what you’ve described as emotionally retarded guys which there’d be plenty of here compared to European and South American or even American men, or they’re, hate to say it, “just not that into you”.
Anyone who tells you otherwise simply hasn’t sat across the very awesome suitors I’ve had the pleasure to break bread and drink with over the past few months (including one who decided that dinner is the perfect place to discuss morning wood. Please welcome the lovely Rihanne as she offers her take on dating down under and be sure to check out Sweety Text Messages to send a loved one an actual romantic message–they do still exist (no sexting, please! *** Australians do things a little differently than the rest of the world – for example: supposedly, we all talk like Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) and eat our national emblems (Kangaroo and Emu). Australians can leave people scratching their heads saying crikey! What happened to the days when a guy asked for a woman’s number to call her? This is pretty much what I’ve been going through with the last few guys I’ve “dated”… No idea what he’s thinking, no idea what I am to him, no signs of whether he likes me, and it’s getting so frustrating. Australian men love foreign women, if they’re shy it’s because they are probably transfixed by your beauty and make a big thing in their head about you.
So the one concern that I hear from a lot of men is “What role does race play? A lot of guys can feel insecure dating well outside of their own racial type when they first start approaching these women.
Some guys think women are racist, some guys assume women just aren’t interested in their race, and I can clearly see why that belief exists, but today I’d like to cover the controversial topic of race in the Pickup Industry.
I’m not that keen to introduce her to my friends unless we are moving in to the next stage. I also don’t like to talk about sport very much at all as its not my interest.I used to live in Dubai, where abortion is illegal and being gay is punishable by death, so it wasn't like I was shocked.I just didn't expect that to be the case in a country that's often portrayed as sunny and fun. In fact, I've never seen the same deep-seated and openly acceptable sexist attitudes that exist in Australia anywhere else – including The Middle East.In Dubai, I saw women in burkhas and abiyas everywhere I looked, but I also saw those women at work in managerial positions, and I never once heard any of them referred to as an ‘uptight bitch’, a ‘bossy cow’ or them being told they needed ‘a good seeing to' if they dared to stand up to overtly sexist behaviour at work.I’ve witnessed that kind of thing here in Australia as many times as I saw a covered face over there.
