A friend of mine, a fellow European, summarized how relationships on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean work in a comical, but also pretty accurate way: “In America, the girl is Barbie and the guy is Ken.
with the statement “Success in life is pretty much determined by forces outside our control,” a higher percentage than in any of the European nations polled.
Oh the games – how any man can build a communication of basic trust with an American woman is beyond me.
From the very off if you interact with an American woman (even if you have zero interest) she will think – that you think she is amazing (they always pedestalize themselves) and automatically go on the defensive. Certainly not future mother material if she cannot be trusted or show respect to respond to a text. One example only last week – in a bar met a very attractive Boston girl ( I find blondes from the East coast largely very boring) and she bored me for two hours.
Globally, there is a strong relationship between a country’s wealth and its level of religiosity. is a clear outlier to this pattern – a wealthy nation that is also relatively religious. think sex between unmarried adults is morally unacceptable, this is nonetheless significantly higher than what our 2013 poll found in Europe.
Nations with higher levels of gross domestic product per capita tend to have lower percentages saying religion is very important in their lives. Americans and Europeans don’t always agree on questions about morality, especially on issues related to sexuality. And while adultery is widely frowned upon in the EU – except, notably, in France – Americans are even more likely to say having an affair is morally unacceptable.
