7 reasons why you should never date an Italian

Italians, the handsome gentlemen, always seem to capture many hearts. Interesting, I thought. Over the last few months I lived in the Italian Dolomites and I noticed a couple of things.

Here are the 7 reasons why you should never date an Italian.

1. You’ll soon start using hand gestures

While Italian is probably one of the most romantic and beautiful languages it also needs a lot of hand gestures which you will copy entirely and start using on your own friends and family.

2. Pasta and Pizza becomes your main dish

Don’t think your national dish is on the menu. You might never again eat anything else but Pasta and Pizza… Just ask yourself if you are dating a pizza or the guy.

3. Italians know their wines

Forget about picking the wine and preparing the spaghetti. You’ll probably use too much salt anyway. Nobody can prepare diner as perfect as la mamma and if you two sit at a restaurant together he will always regret letting you choose the wine. So annoying that he is way too excellent at picking the perfect wine!

4. Passion will overrule you

The Dolomites might have less peaks than your relationship! However the good thing is that every time you do get into a discussion as you forgot to text his mom, the making up part will be worth it.

5. He will be romantic every day

Oh my, flowers! Again?

6. When you move in together, you actually move in with his parents too

Yeah, so, good luck with that. At least you won’t have to prepare diner?

7. He always keeps on looking like a descendant of a Roman God

And he might need more time in the morning than you do.


Have you ever dated an Italian?

The following two tabs change content below.
Ever since I left my home country I felt at home at any other place I went to. I enjoy getting to know more cultures by talking to strangers and hearing their philosophy about life. Speaking with gestures when you can not find a shared language, finding places only the locals go to and learn about their customs and values. Hanging out with local people makes me happy. The experience of every new place is a step out of your comfort zone where I like to wander around until it feels like a second home.

  1. 7 reasons not to date a chick who has dated an Italian:

    1. She’s using hand gestures.
    2. She’s heavily into pasta, due to her former boyfriend.
    3. You enjoy your beer, she makes you taste strange wines.
    4. Passion will overrule her when she starts dating someone that actually cares about her as an independent person. While it can be nice in the beginning the risk is that it can become tedious in the long run and eventually you will suffer a loss of quality time with your mates.
    5. She wants you to be romantic like an Italian…
    6. When you move in together her former boyfriend’s parents will come and check up on you, trying to win your girlfriend back to their son, who has moved backed with Mum and Dad.
    7. She always keeps on looking like a descendant of a Roman God – and it makes it hard to go to work, or even get out of bed…
