In Europe, once a man gets your number he will most likely call straight away, rather than wait a few days.If a man keeps calling you, don't start thinking he's a bit of a stalker.Of course, every relationship is different and how yours develops will depend on who you both are and the chemistry between you.If you like each other, you'll probably find a way to make it work, regardless of any cultural variations.For example, in the UK, a woman might kiss one or more men when she's out in a club or bar (or vice versa) but it wouldn't necessarily mean anything or lead to a relationship of any kind.Whereas in France, if you kiss someone on the lips (or have sex) it means you're ‘in a relationship'. In the UK or US, there's much debate about how long to wait before calling after a first date. Too long and it can seem like they're not really interested.
If a woman shows too much interest too soon, she may scare a man away.In most countries, the man may offer to pay the bill but he wouldn't automatically be offended if the woman suggested splitting the bill, or paying for the drinks or some other aspect of the ‘date', such as cinema or theatre tickets.After the first date, most people would probably expect to go Dutch (and not just in the Netherlands! Last year, a well-known romantic social networking site asked 13,000 members from around the world ‘Would you kiss on a first date?For French men, it's all about the chase, and playing ‘hard to get' is part of the game.If you're interested in someone, maintain eye contact – if you aren't, don't.
