What an Italian might call “a fun game,” an Australian or American might simply find boring and annoying.
So it’s not that we learn to play the game…it’s just that it’s not very interesting to us.
In fact, there are times when I wish I could be more “Italian” in my attitudes and behavior.
But what we truly feel–what we truly –is heavily influenced by our cultural indoctrination and life experiences.
For some reason, the most common searches that drive Googlers to my site involve “how to date an Italian.” Actually, many of the keywords that people enter into the search box are not appropriate for me to repeat.
