British dating customs
Also British men are shy and they expect women to take the initiative, so a mere kiss goodnight could be interpreted as quite dismissive.
British men are also less sexist than most other men and less likely to jump to conclusions about women being 'easy'.
But the trend seems to be that I will let a few days go by, then drop a text or email thanking him for the date - I won't suggest another date myself, as I have been told that is too forward for British men - only to be told "I didn't feel that spark" or something similar. I'm not a supermodel, but I'm also fairly attractive.
If you like someone, make sure he knows it -Britain is not the place to try out THE RULES.I completely disagree with the idea that suggesting a second date would seem 'too forward' I suspect it may often be the only way to get anywhere.The absence of a 'spark' that you mentioned could be because they interpret your behaviour as cool or uptight (how's that for reversing stereotypes? Also, because 'dating' is not part of British culture, a lot of men view dates as a one-off interview and if by the end of it they don't think they will fall in love you, or sleep with you they don't see any point in asking you out again.All this means that British men don't really know what they're supposed to do with dates and may not even consider themselves to be on a date.There are no set of rules that everybody knows and interprets in the same way -except that women are expected to buy rounds of drinks same as the men, and they should offer to split the bill at a restaurant.
