American woman dating america man

I tried to brush this off—preconceptions are always dangerous when entering any sort of relationship.

Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.

I've never known a British girl unable to openly talk about who she is sleeping with.

And while American girls find it hard to be upfront about their dating lives to parents, they are, somewhat confusingly, incredibly forward on dates when it comes to sex.

On my first date with girlfriend number six, we went dancing before playing bocce in Brooklyn.

She was the antithesis of the ballerina; insisting she pave her own journey in life, irrespective of who she was with.

Sadly, when we were suddenly thrust into a long distance relationship, the reality set in that it was putting too much stress on our careers.

If a bumbling buffoon like Hugh Grant could steal Julia Roberts' heart in , anything was possible.

It was the summer of 2006 when I first landed in New York as a 19-year-old, laden with warnings about American girls: they're high maintenance, my friends told me.

So with a heavy heart, it was the end of a fairytale love affair.

Since then, I've spent six years dating American women in the search for "the one".

But surely not all American girls thought British men had an endless supply of money?
