Dating an Italian woman can be tricky, not because of her personality traits, but because, simply put, she's not American.
So here's your first tip-- If you're going to date an Italian, you'll need to think like one and that means letting go of some bad dating habits that Americans may be accustomed to. Whereas the American might play "hard to get" or use some form of "reverse psychology," the Italian tends to be very upfront and she expects the same.
Ask an American woman to go out last-minute and she'll ask herself a million questions before she responds...
"Is he asking me now because I'm his second choice?
In Italian we say (roughly translated): “He who begins well is halfway done”. An American girl will show you if she has interest in you, and she won’t be afraid to ask you out. But in Italy, especially for the first date, looks definitely count a lot.
