If you somehow manage to plow through the resistance and get her number, after a confusing texting exchange she’ll eventually admit to thinking you were cool, but sometimes not even until shes had a few drinks.(Cause they can’t seem to have a real conversation without drinking) So trust that us Aussie guys wouldn’t mind striking up a conversation with you but that we’ve learnt to be super careful after a few too many “why are you talking to me, can you go away” If the problem is Aussie men, how come when we go overseas the problem seems to disappear, I can approach women and they will in the very least be polite and friendly.Great article, I especially loved the bit about texting.I’ve been in the dating industry for over 30 years (yes before computers) and nothing seems to have changed much. I also can’t remember the last time I hanged out in a pub. He said a few times we should go out again – but has yet to set a date. I’m not that keen to introduce her to my friends unless we are moving in to the next stage. I also don’t like to talk about sport very much at all as its not my interest.Aussie men have learnt over time not to be direct with women because Aussie women don’t like it.So they have tailored their behavior to be ‘acceptable’ to the Aussie women.
They are used to getting directly chat up by the American guys who are straight forward and to the point.
We aren’t shy but we are tired of being turned down so we don’t make much effort any more.
