Question: How does dating in Europe differ from dating in the US?

Generally, American dating culture tends to place an official “dating” label on activities with interested parties more often than European cultures. In Europe, people dont tend to use (or even have a word for) the term “dating.” Group activities are much more the norm.

How is dating in Europe?

In Europe, getting to know someone romantically is fairly laid back. People dont tend to go on dates with complete strangers, but instead often get to know someone whos already in their circle or the friend of a friend (or maybe they met online). Then, it just happens and they decide to go out together alone.

What is dating in US culture?

While in some countries dating is considered as a serious family matter, independence plays a key role in shaping dating culture in the United States. Dating is often based on a personal decision in America rather than driven by the influence of parents and arranged marriages.

What dating means in America?

“Dating” means youre going on dates. You are actively getting out there and meeting people and spending time with them. “Dating someone” means youre seeing somebody specific, with purpose and on a regular basis. Youre spending time with a person (or persons) in hopes of finding a committed relationship.
