Although stereotypes are often correct to some degree, don’t forget that everyone is unique and you shouldn’t have expectations or demands of someone just because they identify as part of a certain group.Basically, if you decide you want to date an Italian man only because you love pizza and pasta and hope his family is like the cast of The Sopranos, be prepared that you may be disappointed!If she criticizes you, he may not stand up for you as definitively as you want since he doesn’t want to go against his mother.On the other hand, even if you and his mom get along famously, you should be prepared for feeling like she is overstepping her boundaries.If he loves to make people laugh and be the center of attention, be prepared that he may sacrifice common etiquette to beat other people to the punch line.He won’t be afraid to interrupt someone or speak louder in order to be heard and claim everyone’s attention. Meeting and matching is not a standardized socially preconfigured process.It would sound extremely weird for a person here to date multiple people at the same time to find the best match or even to have many people they date with in a short time span. People here "stanno assieme" meaning they pass time together, they are boyfriend and girlfriend.
Flirtation with other women isn’t seen as a breach of loyalty, it is just seen as natural, fun, and harmless.
Italian men love to be complimentary and flirtatious, so you can expect to swoon over some of the magical things he says to you.
He will make you feel like a gorgeous prize that he will protect, ravish, and cherish.
Italian men are also known for their amazing sense of humor, so be prepared to be in pain from laughing at how amazingly he can entertain a group of people.
He won’t be afraid to break the ice and tell a loud funny story and you will beam with pride when you see how much everyone enjoys him.
