The poets Elizabeth and Robert Browning were famous Italophiles.
I describe them and some of their work on a page dedicated to them.
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.
If she says she can’t go when you ask her out for a date, it’s probably true. An Italian girl always wants to know how much you are willing to work for her. American girls pay attention to how they dress, but guys… They’re often deemed as looking acceptable once they meet the minimum standards.
The Father If you are dating an Italian girl, then you have to deal with my father.
She is credited with moving forward the art of sonnet-writing in the English language with her moving, heartfelt, and thought-provoking sonnets.
You can read them online, and maybe borrow some to impress a lover.
On the flip side of the coin, many Italian men are as faithful as faithful can be.
Again, like Casanova, they tend to give their all when with a woman.
