10 Surprising Dating Lessons I’ve Learned From Dating Italian Women

#6 She’s all style and never frumpy. Milan, Italy, is one of the fashion capitals of the world. Now, we’re not saying you’d never catch your Italian girlfriend in a pair of black leggings and a t-shirt every now and then.

But when she RSVP’s to a night out, she goes all the way. Big hair, smoky eyes, well-dressed curves from here to eternity. When you say you’re taking her out on the town she expects to be shown off and you can guarantee she’s going to dress the part.

#7 You’d better like wine. Italy is the top wine producing country—in the whole world! Even if your lady-love wasn’t born in Italy, odds are the thirst for those sweet and savory grapes run deep in her blood. Trust us, you’re going to love this one. This means red wine with dinner, red wine at night, red wine with friends, and red wine just for the hell of it. Did we mention she’s going to *love* red wine?

#8 You’d better like her friends. Italian women are fiercely loyal to their family, their lovers, and their friends. She’s not the type of girl who bails on friends just because she’s in a relationship. In fact, she’s probably going to see her friends all the time.

When it comes to Italian women, her friends are your friends and your friends are her friends. These friends then intermingle and become a conglomerate who constantly bask in each other’s company. She also probably tries and sets some of your friends up during this intermingling process. Hey, the more the merrier, right?

#9 You’d better love hair. Because she’s gonna have it… everywhere. We’re talking gloriously wavy, thick, gorgeous head of hair, coupled with leg hair, arm hair, and, oh yes, a mustache too. When you’re intimate, you’re probably going to find her hair in your boxers the next day. In fact, you’re probably going to find her hairs all over your apartment.

And if you think she’s going to be shaving every single day so that her legs don’t scratch you during a snuggle session: think again. Italian women mean constant shedding, quick regrowth, and a nice full bush. So, get used to it.

#10 She loves to love. Italian women are all about the love. When she’s made you hers, expect a loyal girlfriend who always endeavors to put you first.

She loves to share her time, her family, her happiness, and won’t let her love for you go unnoticed. In fact, one of the only things she may not share with you is her garlic bread. Hey, she’s got to draw the line somewhere!

Passion, sεχ, loyalty, and spaghetti–what’s not to love!? Italian women can be a handful, but when you treat them right they give back tenfold. Treat her like a gem, and she’ll treat you like a king.
