Dating culture in usa
I find that dating is more casual and at times it’s hard to understand if we are dating or just hanging out.
Something fellow GP writer, Grace Buchele Mineta mentioned in her podcast interview.
I’m sure there are exceptions to this tendency and I’m sure there are differences between every couple, just like every relationship in the U. is different, but it was interesting for me to learn that there are even cultural differences attached to the first kiss.
The vast array of cultural differences between Germany and the U. extend to every part of life, and learning about and experiencing these cultural differences has been a large part of my last six months abroad.
I did have a Japanese boyfriend but I ended things with him to go to school in California.
Unlike Japan, California is a true melting pot of cultures but since I had so little dating experience back home, I was nervous about getting into the dating scene in America.
I found it odd that a couple could be together that long without eventually committing to be together for life.
However, my teacher’s claim was later given real-life substance when the topic of couples and dating came up with my tandem partner.
The thoughts expressed are those of the writer, and not necessarily those of The Torch.
When I first moved America to attend college, I was nervous about starting a life in a new country because I wasn’t sure how quickly I would be able to adapt to the new culture.
Even though it had been my dream to live in America, I was very excited but nervous at the same time.
Growing up in Japan my parents were really strict and so I didn’t get an opportunity to start going on dates until after I graduated from high school.
