Scottish dating culture
Firstly, I won't question why it is a Scottish man in particular that you want to date because hey, I get it: you saw Gerard Butler in a film once and dug his accent and assume that all Scottish men are that rugged and handsome.
[: I saw Gerard Butler walking down Byres Road a couple weekends ago with this current-model girlfriend, and although my heart was a flutter at the idea of Gerard Butler, in reality it was a bit of a let down as he looked pretty hung-over].
As an American, I think in my culture that it is generally expected that men will approach women if interested; however, I’ve never been one to follow the rules and neither are many of my friends.
If I’m interested in a man, I will approach him (without provocation, what a lucky guy 😉 ) There are many cultures where “dating” seems to be less of a process and more of a proposal; if you’ve accepted and gone out on a date with someone, you’re in a relationship.
It’s only to mask any anxiety they may have in approaching a woman.
Dating outside one’s own culture is exciting, but it requires more than just an open heart.
