However, during a recent trip to Capri, I found myself curiously analyzing the crowds of Italian bourgeoisie over my daily spritz at the piazzetta.
Everybody seemed so relaxed and excited and happy, lacking the judgement and the pretentiousness of the French..
And so, I put together my observations, enlisting the help of an Italian girlfriend for some insider insight on what these men are really like. And they smell fantastic, like they all bathed in a tub of Acqua di Gio! Meaning that, from the time they are small children, everything is done by their mothers. Giuseppe could only speak English via Google Translator, yet this did not stop him from hanging out with us twice, taking us out for lunch, and driving us to the airport on our last day. (Since I wasn’t that heartbroken, I still occasionally send him my dental X-rays for second opinion.) 7. I recently witnessed one of my girlfriends get swept off her feet by an Italian guy, resulting in some very entertaining vacation adventures. Her Don Juan happened to be , something my friend found out via Facebook an hour after they had bid arrivederci.
It’s difficult to picture who in God’s name has time for all that pampering and laundering and ironing, until you find out that… My own Italian experience involves a Roman dentist named Mario who lived with his parents until the age of 30, three years after they had purchased him his own apartment. Find me a French man who would do that, and I will find you a monkey that can play Tchaikovsky. She wasn’t even stalking him – he had volunteered his information to “keep in touch”.

Her award-winning blog Surviving In Italy, aims to honestly portray her life in Italy, the sober times, the drunken times, the yelling, food, family, and on occasion her obsession with the majestic Capybara.

A girl I know was invited to dinner with her boyfriend’s ex and her family, which she politely declined.
Italians are always good-natured, hospitable, and give the shirt off their backs to help a friend or family member. but that doesn't even begin to cover the dozens of second (and third) cousins I have, not to mention the limitless amount of uncles and aunts. Anyone is welcome as long as you come hungry and stay hungry.
But take advantage of our kindness even once and you enter into a danger zone. Your plate is refilled 3 or 4 times and grandma will STILL tell you that you don't eat enough. We love our family so much that taking a bullet for them isn't too far-fetched an idea. An Italian party consists of 3 things: good food, good wine, and good family.
We have huge hearts but we also aren't afraid to fight. Whether it's Nona's homemade pasta or mom's meatball soup, we can't get enough of it. So, even if you don't woo your lady with a 7-course meal, the fastest way to her heart is through her stomach.3. A full stomach means a good time and that is no joke. My advice is to know what you're getting into before you date us.
What's sexier than a woman who is full to bursting with passion and won’t take sh*t from anyone? We're full of spunk, we are fun, and we are passionate. All danger aside, you're in for the ride of your life.
