Additionally, Italians usually live with their parents until marriage–a stark contrast from American lifestyle where adolescents usually leave the house at age 18. All this evidence exemplifies the relaxed, slow-paced, and enjoyable Sicilian lifestyle. Italians are more content with delayed gratification, evidenced by their non-adoption, and even rejection, of American hookup culture.

The best way of dating Italian men, if you are looking for something with substance, is to try and meet people the old-fashioned way. Sadly, some men do have less than respectable views about western women. A fair few of them have had experiences with western girls. They meet them while the girls are vacationing in Italy and have a summer romance whereby the girls are enthralled by their charm and exotic appearance. In Italy, if you like someone, you pursue them and when you start speaking or meeting, you give your attention to them and see how it goes. If it doesn’t work out, nothing is lost, you go your separate ways.

He gets to choose how often he sees you and can pick whatever place and time work best for him. And if he can’t be bothered spending time with you, he can use his family commitments as an excuse. I am 100% Italian and I can see slight undertones of truth about Italian men being very close to their mothers, but the mama’s boy statement is a little off the mark. I see my parents once a week for a family gathering and speak with them one other time during the week. Moreover, I simply adore my wife, cook gourmet meals for her and treat her like a goddess, make love to her like a stallion and would never even conceive of betraying her trust in any way.
Despite the stereotypes, they are often ruled not by an emotional vibe but rely on a truly deep feeling. As a rule, Italian men are absolutely sincere when they surround a woman with a cloud of admiration. They are just exaggerating a little since it is natural for them to express emotions in a very expressive way. Another “old school” point is that Italian men don’t particularly like women who curse frequently; I’ve never heard one bad word come out of my future mother-in-law’s mouth. Other examples of highly coveted behaviours are baking a cake to bring to a dinner party or helping to clean up after .
Women who are needy yet apprehensive about commitment may seek the company of married men as they want a relationship with no strings attached. Compliments from married men may seem more flattering to some women, who then get attracted to them. Also, women may often become empathetic towards married men who discuss their dissatisfactory married life. No matter what promises he makes or what dreams you have about your relationship, your relationship is temporary. If your affair faces the risk of being exposed, he will be quick to end it.
If you are dating a married man, draw a line in the sand where he either commits or you walk. And paying attention to where you go when you’re out and about. That’s going to make you feel like dirt, that’s for sure. But he’s not picking up and he texts you to stop bothering him, he’s at his kid’s school play. If you get ill, depressed, suffer a sudden loss or have another crisis, there’s no guarantee whatsoever that this guy will pick up your calls or be by your side.
Taking intimate pictures in public is a strict no-no. If you care about this relationship, you will have to be supportive of his family and his responsibilities towards them. It is safer if he initiates the call when he is at home, as he will be a better judge of the situation.

Italian men value family
However, Italian men brought up in Italy feel they have the right, and it is the custom, for them to have affairs even when married. I was married to an Italian who was born and raised in Canada. I couldn’t take it anymore and finally asked for divorce, at which point he made it his mission to bully me and physically threaten everyone in my life who supported me. He also made up ridiculous stories about me to anyone who would listen.
Logically, I guess I can see both sides of this argument. In fact, there are times when I wish I could be more “Italian” in my attitudes and behavior. But what we truly feel–what we truly are–is heavily influenced by our cultural indoctrination and life experiences. What an Italian might call “a fun game,” an Australian or American might simply find boring and annoying. So it’s not that we can’tlearn to play the game…it’s just that it’s not very interesting to us.
