Dating in germany british americans
In Britain they’re called “Hundreds and thousands”. She likes to point to random things in the house and tell Chris what we call it in America “We call that suitcase”.Most of the time it’s something that shares the same name in England, but for laughs, Chris will call it something completely different to mess with her “We call that a travelling box”. At first, when we first started dating Chris thought I was an alcoholic!To this day, there are still things that Chris and I stumble upon that have different words or phrases in our countries. It will throw me off from time to time in our conversations because naturally my mind has to “translate” his sentence and covert it within seconds before I truly understand what he was talking about.For example,“Sprinkles” or so we call it in America, edible confetti-like sugar bits in a variety of colour. My family loves it when Chris comes over to visit, especially my young cousin Kacy.” It’s not a common coupling that you’ll see in my hometown.I remind them that dating a Brit is no different than dating an American because you don’t experience extreme culture shock when visiting their country, and you can understand their language naturally without carrying a translation dictionary (although some people may beg to differ).
At e Harmony, we know that finding singles that you’re compatible with can be a challenge, wherever you’re from.
But in my opinion there are some subtle differences that do stand out between British guys and American guys, everything is similar but yet also different.
Most obviously their accent sets them apart from the American boys back home. Maybe it’s the movies we’ve watched growing up that portrayed princes and princesses with these accents that created this obsession, but there is something about a British accent that makes you feel like birds are singing in your ears.
Character, kindness, family goals and ambition are just a few of the dimensions that e Harmony takes into consideration, while our setting options allow you to filter by ethnicity, language, religion and location.
So, whether you’re looking to meet someone who lives within 30 or 3000 miles of you, e Harmony can help you find that someone special.
