Dating england in

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!

Our relationship is strong, and filled with lots of humour.

We love each other no differently than if we were from the same country.

Yes they drink tea more than we do, but it’s not like Chris carries around tea bags in his wallet waiting for his clock to turn to 4pm. The way we communicate, the way our relationship develops, and our cultures are not that diverse, but it’s enough to feel a bit amazed as the days and weeks go on. He occasionally drinks tea, dries his laundry all around his bedroom, and finds it weird that in America we use window screens to prevent bugs from flying into the house- even though he complained about a bee getting in our room in England before!

He prefers to wear casual blazers on a night out, and not complain to his waiter when he orders a beef burger and instead they serve him a chicken breast fillet.

He is less inclined to wear tacky t-shirts and exposing his boxers with saggy jeans.

Instead he wears jeans that fit comfortably but stay at his waist, sometimes he’ll wear a nice jumper or just a plain t-shirt, but he always looks clean. Did you know that I’ve been able to identify a British man based off his shoes!?

” 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).

I can only assume that when anyone asks me what it’s like to date a Brit they’re mostly interested in knowing if their stereotypes are true.
