10 Reasons American Girls Will Travel Far And Wide For A Romantic International Guy

While Spring Break just passed and students are looking towards summer internships and abroad opportunities, summer flings are just around the corner!

Whether studying in Rome, Italy or doing a mission trip in the heart of Colombia, here is a quick list of 10 major differences encountered upon flirting with both American and International guys obtained from interviewing various girls in European and South American hostels.

These are just a few reasons why American girls love an international guy:

1. They approach first

Compared to the college atmosphere where girls and guys both go up and approach a person of interest, in both European and Latin American cultures, the men pursue you and come up to you first. While this may seem like you will have to wait, don't be alarmed. There will be herds of men swarming you if you stand alone at a bar.

2. They know how to give a compliment

Contrary to the mutual discussions of likes and interests, when an international man gets a woman's attention, he adorns her with a beautiful myriad of compliments and praises. This confidence boost is very contrary to men in the United States as they tend to be less vocal or expressive with their desires for romance.

3. Be prepared for stares

While it may be thought of as rude or uncomfortable in the United States to stare at others for long periods of time, foreign men use staring as a way of checking a girl out and showing her she has their undivided attention.

4. Dancing

Believe it or not, guys can and do dance! Contrary to the United States where guys believe dancing is too feminine or are too shy to dance, foreign men are not afraid to loosen their hips. From dancing Salsa to Cumbia to dance floor reggaeton, be prepared to literally be swept off your feet when you see these guys dance!

5. They won't let you pay for anything 

Similarly to the USA in some cases, foreign guys will NOT let their woman pay for them as it is a sign they are incompetent or unable to provide for themselves or woman. This is also a benefit according to some girls as having a foreign significant other helps them save money and enjoy being treated like royalty.

6. They get jealous 

Don't even think about switching dance partners or meeting new guys when in the presence of your new beloved. While they are very protective and loving, they are also not afraid to confront anyone standing in the way of what or who they want.

7. They are passionate and expressive

Hearing the beautiful accents and languages can turn any girl on when they hear these men talk, but just wait till you understand what they are saying! Foreign men usually know how to play the game, but do so in a respectful manner. When they are infatuated or begin to desire a woman, the praises and declarations of love begin to follow.

Once swept off her feet, a girl can experience her most passionate love affair yet! From deep kisses that touch your soul to warm embraces of safety, these men are passionate and expressive lovers. These men LOVE PDA.

8. Cat-Calls

While some women find cat-calls offensive, other women love the attention. The US simply just doesn't cat-call and I never would have expected cat-calling to be as large as it is in Latin America. While the cat-calls are harmless, be prepared for strangers to comment on your long legs or blonde hair. Some comments are phrases like "Mamacita," "Babecita," "Bella," "Bellisima," and other pet names remarking a woman's beauty.

9. Different cultural customs

If you happen to hit it home with a foreign man and decide to bring him back with you, be aware that things may look a little different. While most foreign men are not circumcised, US males are. Contrary to the medical practices in the US, various medical and religious backgrounds influence circumcision or the lack thereof. Be prepared for some new experiences.

10. They walk on your left

Because of the traffic and most individuals walking to their destinations, foreign men have a custom to walk on your left side (usually the side closest to the roadway) to protect you and show chivalry.

While these differences are major turn ons for some women, others may not find these traits attractive. However, after asking friends and girls in hostels, they all agreed they preferred men that had these traits and qualities. With these 10 major differences explored, hopefully, you have a better understanding and idea of what to expect before you travel abroad! Best of luck on your future adventures and remember—French kissing isn't only done by French men! Ciao!

12 Things To Know Before Dating A Girl Who Loves Country Singers More Than She Loves You

They’re just as important as you, babe.


If you're about to fall for a girl who falls for country singers, prepare yourself by knowing the following:

1. The playlist 

My playlist will go from Luke Combs to Blake Shelton and you'll have to deal with it. Your playlists are not an option. I will go on and on about how beautiful their voice is, but don't get jealous.

2. Releases

I will set alarms for new releases like Luke Combs "The Prequel" and you HAVE to be as excited as I am. I will be more excited about these releases than I am about anything else in life, but suck it up buttercup.

3. Concerts

I will give up time with you to go see my favorite singers and you’ll just have to understand. You can either join or not, but the plans aren’t changing.

4. Lyrics

You will hear me quote their lyrics more than I’ll say I love you, but just know I still love you.

5. Car rides

Every car ride will include country music, while it will most likely be Luke Combs or Adam Doleac blaring on the radio, you better enjoy every bit of it.

6. I will talk about how beautiful they are.

You’ll hear about their looks often, wether it be Luke Combs eyes or Luke Bryan’s voice, the looks will be brought up. Don’t get jealous, you’re just as handsome.

7. Their voices

Their voices are BEAUTIFUL. While I personally favor Luke Combs, just know I love yours too.

8. Phone backgrounds 

My phone background is most likely some country singer and not a picture of us, but you’re important, I promise.

9. Home Decor 

I will have pictures of Faren Rachels and I up before I have some of us, but realize I have plenty of pictures of us and one with her.

10. Awards

Whenever any awards are on, they’re number one priority compared to your Braves games. You can always watch recaps.

11. Singing 

I will randomly start singing any song by them and probably interrupt any story you're telling, sorry they're on my mind.

12. Dates

I will make sure any release dates for new songs, albums, or concerts are on my calendar; however, I will probably forget our anniversaries.

I Asked 10 Brides What They Wish They Had Done Differently While Wedding Planning And Their Responses Ring True

When the engagement celebration sets in and the wedding planning begins, 10 brides give their advice on how to plan a kick-ass wedding.


Maybe it's just me, but I was almost in a state of denial after our engagement. I was on this cloud and I didn't want to start thinking about what's next. But a week later we started thinking about possible dates, venues, and budgets and that when the stress began— which wasn't fun.

It's hard not comparing one's wedding and planning processes to those of the movies and other friends. But every wedding is as different as the couple themselves are; that's what makes a wedding spectacular and amazing! So with wedding planning, I have found some of the best advice I have received has been from first-hand experience. These 10 Brides have something to say when asked the question, "What is one thing you wish you hadn't stressed so much when planning your wedding?"

1. Too much pressure on the event.

"Putting too much emphasis on the event, rather than the reason for being there. Make a commitment to God and each other to make it through the good and the bad times. That's what really matters!" Denise, married December 24th, 1994

2. Take in the moment and live it!

"About the wedding day being perfect, it's gonna go how it's gonna go. Don't stress about it, just take in the moment and live it. Oh and don't be a bridezilla. Ruins the day and the mood." Kayla, married December 9th, 2016

3. Do only what you want to do!

"Worrying about everyone else! It's YOUR DAY! Do only what you want to do!" Ashleigh, June 7th, 2017

4. Don't stress the small stuff!

" Planning wasn't that stressful for me! But when it came to the actual day, there were so many things that I was like, 'this literally doesn't matter.' Such as the flowers or decorations or the little details. Of course they were all great and everything looked amazing. But little details you don't even notice on your wedding day. For me, the day went by SOOO fast! Everything was so fast paced and so I didn't even have time to glance at the decorations table or card table. Don't stress the small stuff! Because on your actual day, it'll be the last thing on your mind! Because you'll just wanna see your groom so bad that nothing else matters!" Kelsie, married August 19th, 2018

5. Too many little details that nobody else cared about.

"Too many little details that nobody else cared about that I cared about too much! So much time went into it which I loved, but it's more about spending time with all the people that you love in your life! They don't care how much money you spend on the day or if everything goes perfectly. They just want you to have a good day and they want to celebrate you and your love and marriage!" Savannah, married October 1st, 2017

6. It's about you and your spouse.

"How much other people thought things are important to them. Dang this is my day and what's important to me and my spouse is what matters. It's about us." Denise, married July 28th, 2007.

7. Having the "perfect picture" like everyone else in my mind had.

"Definitely all the details that you don't really notice, like the seating chart at the reception. Don't stress about getting things done the week of the wedding, if it doesn't get done then it doesn't get done. You're going to get married regardless and no one will even notice it. I also had to keep reminding myself, it's about the marriage, not the wedding. Pictures/video were a big thing I stressed about because I wanted it all to be "perfect" pictures like everyone else in my mind had...I spent so much time finding pictures and trying to match those pictures that I didn't enjoy the picture finding process. I would also say that the night before the wedding don't stress too much about all the details that you hadn't gotten to because it's going to be beautiful and you need sleep, especially if you are going on your honeymoon right away because then you wind up sick...
One big one I stressed about a lot was how well all the pinks in my wedding matched (I'm OCD) Cloth napkins, table runners, the bridesmaid dresses, to the decorations." Presley, married August 18th, 2018

8. The guest list

"Honestly I stressed about the guest list the most and still do even now. Since my fiance and I are both from a small town and both have big families, it took us quite a while to get the guest list figured out. Our wedding budget was also a factor in determining how many people we wanted to have as well. At the wedding you want people there that are an influence on your life and it's hard looking back thinking of all the people that have been a part of it over the last many years. Once that was figured out it was a big relief, but it has also been fun planning everything. Even the guest list." -Morgan, getting married in June of 2019.

9. Thinking too much about making it different or comparable to other weddings.

"I'm a people-pleaser by nature. And because we are young I worried about people looking at our wedding and judging based on what we didn't have. I compared it too much to my other friends' weddings, YouTuber's weddings, and the stuff you see in the movies. And finances were a big stress in the early stages as well. But once we took a step back to just process what our wedding meant to us as a couple and what we want our marriage to be, we were able to lighten up a lot and have more fun! Yes, we had to refocus our finances and savings, but really we just kept reminding one another that this was one day to the rest of our lives together as husband and wife. The best is yet to come. - Megan (Me) Getting married in September of 2019!

It's easy to get into the mindset that your wedding has to be "perfect" and it has to look like weddings in the movies or in the pictures of other people. But that's what's amazing about weddings. They are uniquely yours. If you have a hard time getting out of this mindset like I do a lot of the time, just think about your fiance. Remember that you are committing forever to the one you love. Marriage is more than just one day.
