Secondly, though I’m sure the author is lovely, she doesn’t come off well in the book.Stories like “When I Had a Song Dedicated to Me” and tales of bowling over Euro dudes with her killer looks make her sound like your snotty friend who hogs the mirror and thinks you’re lucky to be in her company.But my personal eye-rolling favorite was the suggestion to “catch up on current events” because European men are proud of their cultures.
For those of you who come from countries like the US or Canada where politeness is the norm, Germans may surprise you with their rudeness.
But it is actually is the no-nonsense directness that shows they don’t like sugar-coating the truth.
When he fails to flirt back, don’t immediately assume he is not interested.
Unless, the conversation is simply not going anywhere and both of you are getting a migraine from it.
Though cheesily phrased, the suggestion to “be fast to allure, slow to succumb” may be the best advice to give a young woman today.
Hearts are regularly popping across the country as high schoolers, sorority sisters and twentysomething gals are dumped by dudes who don’t want anything serious after these gals so graciously put out.
Obviously, this book isn’t for the reader hoping to land a poet sipping cognac outside the Louvre.
It’s for those young chick gaggles we see every weekend wobbling through bars on six-inch heels, sipping pomegranate cocktails and recounting episodes of Those gals would dig this book, so I highly recommend it to them. Firstly, meeting European men is far from difficult.
French women consider themselves and are viewed as independent, so your date will most likely expect that from you. Don’t take offense when they keep a mile away from you, clutching their drink to their chest like a protection blanket. But most importantly, don’t forget that stepping out of your comfort zone and looking silly is part of the traveling experience.
The roles are definitely reversed here, as the Dutch expect their women to be the leaders in the pursuit. If you are on the softer side and like a man to make the first move, you are out of luck. So, leave your comfort zone, make a move and connect with a new person.
Awkward and robotic, they need to down lots of beer before they can even think of initiating a conversation with a woman, and by then they are in no shape to stand straight. If you want to meet a German man, the best bet is to actually just make the move yourself.
