Money and salary is brought up frequently, and name dropping is prevalent in a good portion of conversations, especially in Los Angeles where status is paramount.
It was a night full of spontaneity, which American girls—naturally outgoing and vivacious—have perfected.They know how to have a good time wherever they are, with a zest for life uncommon in British women.It was a bit embarrassing when I finally met her, but hey, better be honest than conceal the truth?They had an extremely strong relationship and it was based on honesty and openness.But surely not all American girls thought British men had an endless supply of money?
They weren't all obsessed with fame and fortune, were they?In Britain, we are self-deprecating to the point where we convince ourselves that we're utterly useless in life.I've always loved this approach: under-sell, over deliver. Where British women live in the moment, unafraid to admit their flaws, American women want to project an heir of success to the world.The American, with seemingly impeccable etiquette, ate slowly and cautiously, ensuring the kale salad she was munching on didn't wrap around her big, pearly white teeth.On the contrary, British girls have no shame picking kale salad out of their teeth on a date.This does not happen in American culture, where women rarely make fun of themselves. American family dynamics is still something that remains a bit of a mystery to me.
