Men you meet at the pub will rarely be Prince Charming, looking for a nice girl to maybe take out to dinner.I know this may seem obvious, but it’s worth mentioning.We believe that lasting love starts with a compatible match, so we take your location, personality, lifestyle and dating ambitions into account; it’s an intelligent matchmaking formula we know works.Part of Affinitas Gmb H – one of Europe’s leading networks of dating sites – we create over 2000 couples every month on average, in more than 20 countries worldwide.An Irish man could quite literally be left talking to a wall.It appears all Irishmen have had a kiss off the Blarney stone and been given the gift of eloquence.
However, beneath the myriad shades of moods, temperaments, whims and fancies that set them apart, there runs a common strand that joins the whole lot of women. If we ever cheat on you, you’ll know by the red marks on our pasty Irish skin. We’re like England’s tacky friend from grade school, and we know it. Irish punk music is actually effective workout music. This means, when you meet the parents, you probably won’t be the only significant other in the picture. It’s a good thing we have the issue of paying out of the way – that at least gives us one less thing to worry about on an actual date. Dating in other countries is wildly different to dating in Ireland.Whilst Americans are happy to approach a stranger and ask them out for coffee, Irish people would rather gnaw their own arm off than do the same thing.New research by Rabo Direct reveals that a staggering 84% of Irish men are more than happy to pay for a first date.Women are more likely to want to “go Dutch”, with 68% saying they do the latter and only one in ten women offering to pay for the whole thing.You can be sure not to come across any awkward silences or be stuck for conversation.Irish men can be very decent when it comes to paying for a lady.So, all of us brought our own hygienic products before arriving. In my case, many of the men were really looking for a hook up or what they called a shift and drift.That’s not to say there aren’t any Irish guys looking to go out on dates, but its really rare for people my age. My Irish female friends have told me it is commonplace for the guy to text first and that women should not be the first one to initiate contact if you get someone’s number. Thanks to Rupert Grint, being a ginger is now widely considered adorable.
