I am probably going to offend someone with this topic (if there are Americans on here) but I will try to step carefully. Just want to know if anyone on here feel the same.
I do have a bit of issues with Americans, and although I really don't want to judge the country as a whole, I find that a lot of the negative stereotypes there are, tend to be true. I'd like to add that I have American friends from all over the place (NY, LA and the Southern States as well), they are all well educated and they travel a lot, internationally.
On the positive side, they're quite extroverted, enthusiastic and very social. But I don't think social counts for much if it's not genuine. Once you get to know an American girl she's all "heey" when she sees you, will write nice things on your fb wall but I feel like it stops there. And they are pretty much like that with everyone they see. It's like emotional sluttiness - giving it all away and putting no meaning to it. Being open and friendly is a good thing, but it seems to me that there is all surface. For the American girls I know, when it comes down to it, they rarely make anyone a priority and think mostly about themselves. "Oh my Goood we need to go out next weekend!" is pretty much a standard response.
Also the conversations are quite bland. The list of topics is usually the same: gossip, got so drunk last night, reality/Kim Kardashian's marriage, she slept with that guy, I hooked up with that guy, what on earth is she wearing.
There is no culture. I never meet an American girl who's read a good book I haven't read, seen a film I haven't seen, can tell me about an exhibition, can tell me about a genuinely exotic and interesting trip, who has any kind of opinion that isn't just general opinion or political correctness. And these are girls who do their masters in London.
I want to like American girls, I just really find it hard (I'm not English either btw).
