Full disclaimer: Everything was totally platonic, so no juicy stories today.
But Nate, like literally every single other Australian guy I met, was so much fun.
Australians aren’t big on rules – unless it’s Aussie Rules Football.
This makes for a pretty fun and flexible dating culture, which forces people to get to know one another.
The first time you hang out, it’s probably not on a formal date.
One of you might suggest going out with a group of friends, or choose something that you both have a mutual interest in.
And I meet Australians—like, so many I actually looked up some numbers, which is really hard to do for a writer first thing in the morning.
But seriously, it's shocking: Last year, there were 7.8 million vacations taken out of Australia, and 32 percent of them were to places other than the South Pacific, China, New Zealand or the States.And the dating space also shows these competing interests.Women in China are now more educated, but very traditional Chinese men may still want women “beneath them,” who are less educated and more subservient, reports a story on China It was the biggest, hairiest spider I’d ever seen, and it was sprinting across the bedroom wall. ), so screaming is totally and completely unnecessary. Some love going for hikes or bike rides, and some may love trips “up to the farm,” but if you’re dating an Australian, you’ll learn you’ve gotta get your hands dirty once in a while. Seriously, what kind of game goes on for days and days and days? After our cultural observations of Spanish men, a run-in with a French curling team, and an encounter with a gorgeous silver fox, Fiona left Barcelona to go back to Edinburgh, and I took the worst overnight train ever down to Granada on my own, where I had the luck to meet an Australian.
