    This may be a vague question, but what do american girls like in a man, do you
    have any taboos, customs, are there any subjects that should be avoided?

    yes, that is a VAGUE question.

    its also a bad question because not all girls are the same by a long shot. Some girls will stick to the no-sex till marriage, nothing weird or kinky, hate big tough tattooed up the yin yang guys. Some girls have sex on a whim with peopel they dont know, cuss up a storm, shave their heads, flash at anyone on sight. Can't even really say theres a middle ground because everyones very different. Some girls might like a lil of this, some might like a lil of that.

    As far as subjects to avoid... it depends on who you talk to. I suppose what your asking is if there are any subjects that should be avoided no matter who it is. The answer is no in my experience. Theres always a few people that will do or tlak about anything.

    american girls = high maintenance, and if one has kid with one and for some reason you split from her, you are better off dead.

    I seem to have put my foot in it, it was more a question on etiquette and
    custom

    You could take a sampling of some American girls. Er, that is, ask them questions. :smile:

    I think American women who aren't offended by sexist remarks (ex. that men are superior) are the exception. Suggesting that men and women should play substantially different roles in society probably wouldn't be received well either. Abortion seems to be an especially volatile issue. That's about all I can think of as far as taboos.

    I don't especially want a man right now, but I'm attracted to men that are kind, honest, fair, and responsible; Someone with whom I share mutual respect and appreciation, who can challenge me intellectually and artistically, and is curious, passionate, and wise. You know, "‘Fair, kind, and true,’ varying to other words."
    Thanks, I'm feeling lonesome now. :frown:

    I can't think of any general taboos. I had a friend from Leeds stay with me for a few months, we ran into no social problems. I did have a hard time understanding him when he spoke too quickly.
    Woman are pretty much the same in both countries, lol they will let you know if you have done something wrong. :wink:

    The impression I get from magazine polls and relationship guides and such is that the single most desirable trait a man can have to an American women is the ability to consistently make her laugh.

    yah i think women are liars when they say that. Anyone can make anyone else laugh. Plus if that were true, id have women lining up at my door because i can make pretty much anyone laugh. Only thing lining up at my door is the newspaper

    Wolram, if you stick to your own taboos, customs, and range of proper subjects, you run 0 risk of offending an American.

    All women like: humor, respectfullness, sincere compliments (not flattery), and maybe most important of all, good listeners.

    You're bitshy around women? Oh, a bit shy. I get the impression American women, or at least those from New England, are a bit like British men - not to be mixed with alcohol. Me and a mate hung out with a few girls for a few days and, yep, they dug the suave English accent (that everyone thought was Australian... hmmm... not so suave then), but as the first night wore on they got really rowdy (and randy), turned against one another, had huffs... some real face-offs going on. My mate tried to leave and one of them leapt onto him as he was going up the stairs. He got away, but then she grabbed him by the shoe. Not the outside of the shoe, you understand. She dug her fingers into the back of his shoe and held on for dear life. She begged him, and I'm not kidding, to- actually I can't say what she begged him to do, but I never heard those words COME from the MOUTH of any British girl I ever met in public on a first social outing.

    Dinner the following night was... interesting.

    Was that a freak occurrence?

    Yep. I've lived in the US or 50 years, including New England, and have never seen anything that extreme.
