His eyebrows will be perfectly combed and he will smell like he just bathed in a vat of cologne.He will expect the same level of perfection from you, which might lead to criticism. On one date in Italy, the first thing a guy said when he greeted me was, "Wow!

Her situation gives her a unique perspective that, in my opinion, is very instructive for foreign men in Italy hoping to “get lucky” with Italian girls.
