In the blogosphere, a blogger is helped by his/her platform (in my case “Wordpress”) that provides useful information as to how many hits the site gets, where the hits come from and what are the most common search terms, amongst others. Aside from food related blogs, I am always surprised to see how the piece I wrote on “10 things you should know about Italian women” is always at the top of viewed blogs – who knew there was so much interest in Italian women?
Some of the search terms amused me so much that I started a small collection I finally decided to address. My gut instincts tell me that most questioners are of the male variety. Again, these are by no means scientifically proven facts but just mere personal opinions. Italian ladies, feel free to chime in.
What do Italian women eat – Italian women are partial to (surprise) Italian food and that is partly because ethnic food in Italy is not great and it’s hard to find other than in large cities. And even there, authentic Chinese or Indian is a chimera and South American virtually non-existent. Italian palates can be pretty stodgy and who can blame them? Real Italian food is indeed delicious. So if you are planning to take an Italian on a date, steer clear of Italian restaurants or you will spend most of the dinner hearing why what you are eating does not taste the way it does back home. A good American restaurant with fresh ingredients might be best. She might also dig American staples like burgers and hot dogs and you will hardly ever have to worry about bizarre food allergies or antipathies. That seems to be an American obsession (which I picked up fairly quickly)
Italian women and shoes – I am not sure what this search was about in detail but, yes, we do tend to have many pairs of shoes and my recommendation would be not to buy an Italian shoes. You are most likely to get it wrong as Italian ladies’ fashion choices are highly dictated by current fads which are not necessarily the same as here. Same goes for clothing – they take their clothes seriously and they will judge your wardrobe. Sad but true, although concessions are made for foreigners
Italian women and oral sex – Clearly, this was a guy fishing for information. What can I say? Are Italian women better or less known for it than other nationalities?? All I will venture to say is that Italy is not Alabama so I suppose it’s performed at the same rate as most Western countries. Happy now?
This was my favourite: Do Italian women eat after men – After some head scratching, I figured whoever was enquiring had some ill-conceived geisha idea of Italian women. Lots of single men still live at home, fed by devout mothers but no – by and large we do not have a serving or subservient attitude towards the opposite sex. Quite the contrary. We will be happy to feed you if cooking is our thing but, after date number 3, you will most definitely be doing the dishes.
