Dating rituals in australia

20 Mar

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.

I adjust my dating according to the type of person I am dating. when we go out is so easy talk and have a datting with some guy. When I want to brake up he calls and says how much I mean for him and the everything starts from the beginning. Its only the white Australians who are emotionally retarted, some advice (checklist) has teeth check.. We are not retarted and emotional, we mentally strong and sensible. There is always a time for everything and results come with patience.In the past white represented a virgin or pure bride, today white is worn by the bride as a symbol of tradition.‘ Wedding fashions have changed over the years, but the white bridal gown is a perennial feature’.Australia has many wedding traditions which have been developed and followed by many generations.Weddings have ‘rigidified and codified not just (the) marriage ritual, but notions of masculinity and femininity as well’.
