Others sit close by on the stone ledge of the fountain and smile to themselves, enjoying their date with life.And for more awe-inspiring exploration, seek out the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain nearby.In Italian we say (roughly translated): “He who begins well is halfway done”. An American girl will show you if she has interest in you, and she won’t be afraid to ask you out. But in Italy, especially for the first date, looks definitely count a lot. If she says she can’t go when you ask her out for a date, it’s probably true. An Italian girl always wants to know how much you are willing to work for her. American girls pay attention to how they dress, but guys… They’re often deemed as looking acceptable once they meet the minimum standards.There are endless restaurants, bars, and gelaterias, street vendors, piazzas, and performers.
So take yourself out, buy yourself a meal, give yourself a tour, and relish every minute of it. Keep treating yourself and discover more of Europe while you’re already over there.
Seriously, if you need a confidence boost, just walk past any of the pizzerias and wait for the bell boys to lure you in to dine with bountiful compliments.
I stopped by a string band playing old Italian songs and watched five couples dance, eyes closed, cheek to cheek, becoming one with the music and each others’ bodies.
Find a cute place with sidewalk seating where you can feast and people watch (Tonnarello is a lovely option).
But be warned; even if you are having a date with me, myself, and I…
