Sometimes it feels like everything’s going by very slowly, and there aren’t always clear road signs. This is because, in Australia, there aren’t formal dating rules like in some cultures.
Australians aren’t big on rules – unless it’s Aussie Rules Football.
And hey, he can easily play off as my hero when he catches a spider! Not having meat in a meal is unacceptable Yes, there are vegetarian Australians, but after dating my Aussie and meeting most of his friends, every meal required some sort of meat (mostly BBQ of sorts) otherwise it was considered as just an appetizer. Americans love his accent I, being one of the Americans that fell in love with his accent, obviously, but the Aussie will go to the bar, smile at someone (being nice, not flirty) and they will nod and turn back to their friends.
I once thought I could surprise my man with a really delicious bean soup for dinner, only to hear "but where's the chicken? The minute he starts speaking, it's as if someone just yelled "FREE NUTELLA!!!
But in Australia, you’ll probably find yourself doing a lot of ‘couply’ activities the relationship starts.
" He actually left, bought roasted chicken, and had the nerve to put it in my soup and say, "There we go.
That meant "let's get a drink this afternoon." It's hilarious.
The American boys love to play games with girls, and the whole grinding thing? The flirting/hooking up game was so different in Australia! Americans drink to get drunk and go out, Aussies love a beer with almost anything and drink because they mostly enjoy the taste (they just get hammered in process of enjoying all this grog! Also, the whole "Live to work - Work to live" mentality is so noticeably different between the two cultures. The Aussie comes in, sees the spider and says "that's it? If you don't know footy well, just support the same team he does Aussie boys are incredibly loyal to their footy team. I hear choosing footy teams can make or break a relationship.
Anyways, let's be real, my man does follow the Aussie stereotypes -- Blonde hair, surfer, beach bum, makes a mean BBQ, loves a good beer, and rides a kangaroo to work! " Everyone knows that Australia has some wild and terrifying creatures that are ultimately out to kill you, so the tiny and unintimidating insects here are nothing to the Aussie kind.
