America american dating rules
It felt almost as though each person played their role in the perfect relationship, but could easily repeat it the following week with somebody else.This leads me to my next point, of commitment not being the serious part of the relationship.Dating in itself is a very personal and sophisticated matter. According to Lynne P., an American living in Germany, ” …if there’s any genuine connection between two people, it’ll survive whatever differences may arise in the early stages of dating, and if those differences seem too overwhelming and/or the relationship doesn’t survive for other reasons, trying to make too many adaptations in the early stages is NOT going to help!

I could hardly find anyone who wasn’t in a relationship and who wasn’t engaged in some serious PDA all over the place, complete with holding hands, wearing matching clothes, constantly uploading a super-couple-y profile picture on Facebook and so on.
Americans, on the other hand, can feel a lot more lost in the crowd of a huge, diverse population and thus are more likely to commit to someone without making it the search for the Holy Grail.
