I love Americans

I finally realized that American men are the ones to look out for...usually they are quite smart, they got good manners, plus they know how treat a lady. There should be more of them here in Switzerland (not just tourists)!!

Yep - leave her asap - 40% marriages end in divorce - just about the highest current divorce rate anywhere. We don't do much better but a Spanish guy might be a better bet .

Re: I love Americans

Well, I certainly don't have anything against Americans in general or American men (in general) either but I AM curious what brought this about...

I mean, I know that my brothers are both incredibly fantastic and charming BUT I also know that they are both happily married and currently in the US so fail to see what could have inspired such an outpouring of love like this...

Re: I love Americans

I have to agree with you.

I have had an American bf too, he was lovely... he treated me well, was polite, funny, intelligent and very well dressed

I have to say though....the same applies for the kiwi, swiss and various other nationals of men I have dated..... AND especially for my South African husband

Indeed, I imagine the Americans general lack of understanding of the subtle nuances of humour and sarcasm generally fits well with that of the Croatians.

Even for reasons of dubious humour, isn't there a rule about misquoting people?

I'm not sure, perhaps you could take a look at the terms and conditions ? Certainly many a time I have seen people cheekily alter people's quotes and put a 'fixed that for you' message in as if that makes said misquoting all above board.

in terms of dubious humour, a bit of sexual stereotyping goes on here about once every hour I would say on average, so a simple women-are-in-it-for-the-money Benny Hill joke I hope will not result in my removal from this message board.

Aside from which, as an English person, I obviously don't know how to treat birds - I mean women sorry - according to this.
