7. Italy

The Italians are a traditional bunch. When it comes to dating, men look for women who have physical beauty and who are able to do household chores, such as cooking, cleaning and taking care of children. Women, on the other hand, look for men who can offer them financial stability. Looks are important to both sexes. Also, the Italian man is coddled by his mother, meaning a woman must show her respect in order to be loved by the man.

It’s common for a girl's parents to do a background check on the guy, if their daughter expresses serious interest, and in the past, it was even common for one of the parents to accompany the couple on their first date.

Isn’t it funny how dating customs are different in every part of the world? And can you imagine what dating would be like if you would date someone from another country? Some of you girls must have had experience with foreign dating customs once or twice in your lives, and I’m very curious to hear the strange dating customs you came across in your relationship. Will you share them in the comments, so we can all learn about how foreign men date?
