You can do a search on here and change your preference to what ever country you'd like to meet a person from.
You might get some review information as well as dating sites themselves and Google's translator is simple to use if you hit a language barrier.
Seriously do you want to make an emotional connection with someone online only to discover when you went there he might be low life scum
It also helps to speak the same language(s).
Therefore, it's easier to form healthier relationships with either younger or older men.
I'd definitely relocate for the right person. I seriously thought about relocating to another country once before but came to realize that relationship wasn't solid enough. It had a lot of good things going for it but there were some factors that would end up sabotaging it in the end. I think about these things very, very carefully.
Will be interesting to know how a liberal female will get along with homegrown Italian men...
Yep. Don't think I don't think about that! Of course, just like here, it depends on *which* Italian men.
You have a degree and work in healthcare, it should be fairly easy for you to get a work visa through a legitimate business over there. You should just pack up your stuff and head on over there, especially before the Winter hits STL.
I'm not going to do anything soon. If nothing else, I have too many loose ends I have to tie up here before I go anywhere. I do wonder about being able to support myself in Italy. Between my profession and the possibility of teaching English, I might be able to earn a living. In the big cities, all the young people speak English, but in the smaller ones, the English teachers don't speak English and they are often very eager to speak with me. I might be able to earn some income teaching English. Even without dating, I think of moving there. I'm quite fond of my relatives and they would love to have me there. Apparently, it should be easy for me to get citizenship because of my grandparents. It would be a big change, though.
150 million men in america and you can't find one to date?
;-) It's not as easy as you think.
First of all, how many of those men are in an appropriate age range? I'm almost 60 years old, hon.
Of those men, how many are unattached? The pool is getting smaller.
Of those, how many of them are actually interesting and can hold my attention? Not very many. I'm an uncommon woman and I'm "too much" for most men my age. Too intellectual, too curious, too enthusiastic. Of course, that may be true of Italian men, too, but the emotional climate there feels more at home to me.
When I do meet men here I find interesting, they end up being too young, from another country, or married (but didn't bother to tell me). You got someone you can introduce me to? ;-)
why not join a foreign language learning site?
Meet real people in other locations that want to "trade" practicing skills in English/ Italian language.
Make acquaintances of both genders. Get a feel for the culture/ community/ locale in which you may be interested BEFORE making major life-changing decisions.
Oh, that's an excellent suggestion. Actually, I go to Italian dinners here and most of the attendants are natives. However, all the men my age are married.
Did these pro-Europe friends specify what exactly all European men have that no American men have?
None of them have specified that they thought I'd be better off with an Italian man (until this last one) but they've often said that they thought I was more like a European, and this has been mostly said to me by Europeans - mostly Italians and French. Intellectually and socially they find my way of thinking and my habits & preferences similar. I don't know. I do know I feel out of synch with my own culture and more at home when I am there, but I haven't been there long enough to know what that would be like over time. When there, I mostly don't do tourist stuff, I spend time with my relatives just having ordinary village life. In Milan, I have a small, quiet, relatively inexpensive place to stay.
Mostly, yes. I went to Italy for two weeks at Christmas and saw only one truly obese person the entire time, in a pizza place in Milan. I can't go two hours in a public place in the U.S. - or probably twenty minutes, for that matter.
So go for it, but realize you are competing with his MOTHER.
I'm aware of the "mamistas." ;-)
if you want to introduce a lot of angst into your life, start a relationship with someone who lives in another country.
Actually, went through that once before. You're right. ;-)
Well, thanks to everyone for their thoughts. I'm not a rash person and it would take a lot for me to pick up and go. I've got some heavy commitments here that will take some time to shed but once I do, I won't be tied here any more and perhaps spending more time with my relatives would be the thing to do.
