Americans are bolder beasts and think nothing of meeting for a romantic midday coffee or an afternoon stroll in a scenic graveyard, which is how one of my expat friends spent her first date with her current American squeeze.
Possibly this has something to do with the fact that so many Americans do the serial dating thing.
Understandably, fragile singles often want to be sure they’re the one and only before removing any underwear.
