    Very interesting, I would said that Italian man like foreigners but at the end of the day they want to get married with an Italian woman. I had been in italy for many years and I had never been with an Italian man just because they are not serious with foreigners, maybe I haven’t find the right one, but that is my opinion. What I really love from Italian man is that they love the family as a latin woman I love that too, but in this century looks like that is not important anymore. So the conclusion is “stay single is more fun and secure” you will be happy forever 🙂 Cheers John !!! wonderful Post, I really enjoy it.

    John….I’d say, follow that old Italian adage: Mogli, buoi, paesi tuoi!
    Unless of course, you fancy yourself a moth to a flame…

      Hey, I guess American men do have more opportunities. As my fellow Rick Zullo pointed out, men get excited when we move to Italy and get the double-cheek kiss on introductions. What we don’t know until later is that’s about all we ever get.

    Very interesting article indeed and to ‘Francesca’ above, I was once told ‘mogli buoi… etc’ by an ex’s mom, so not fun to hear when you think you’re in love…

      I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog now that I see it. Florence hasn’t been in my top 10 destinations in Italy. I can’t seem to get the tourists and David aprons out of my head. I need to get off the beaten path. Your blog has given me a few tips.

    Good article. I have spent a year in Rome, came back for a 3 month’s stay and since then spend a couple of days/month for work. I still have not met a single Italian woman or girl. I travel a lot, from Bulgaria to Brazil and nowhere, absolutely nowhere I have been confronted with such a barrier between the sexes.

    I would just say, too many “Great Expectations” on both sides – an eye on *real life* would just help heal (or even prevent, in the long run) those wounds.
