Southern rules of dating

Timekeeping works differently in Italy and arriving 10 minutes after the agreed time really is no big deal.

Those social norms that dictate men should pay for everything and women should play hard to get are stubbornly sticking around in certain circles.All the Italian stereotypes are ready and waiting to be swiped right – Stefano showing off his six-pack at the beach, Francesco and his promise of a Vespa ride and Chiara who’s already not interested.It’s difficult to date in a country where over 80% of young people still live with their parents.Ditch the comfy hoodie and those trainers that have seen better days – looking good and putting your best self forward is the way to impress.Of course, this doesn’t apply to all men, but anyone who dips a toe in the Italian dating pool will notice some guys think an overactive tongue and lots of heavy breathing equates to good kissing.
