A real Italian, not Italian-American. He's a young musician, speaks English decently. I'm American. Was curious what other people's experiences have been with Italians.
Any advice on dating an Italian?

In my experience, [italic]very[/italic] passionate. Will make romantic declarations easily, which threw slow mover me for a minute. But he taught me to open up emotionally more too. They "make love" more than "fuck".
Very jealous too. When they love you, they really love you, and are always watching for any slight movement you make that may indicate to them that your eye is wandering. This was never a negative thing in my case, I used to laugh at him about it, because the truth is I was madly in love with him. It could just be a tad... exhausting sometimes.
Honestly, I recommend Italians. I've never been so loved in my life. Taught me how to cook, I got a massive extended family thrown in who I also love dearly. We're still best friends now. Also, they are fastidiously hygienic. Effortlessly fashionable (ie not showy, can make a simple shirt and jeans look good). As I say, this is my experience.

Eine schlechte Lebensentscheidung, mein lieber OP. Der Sex ist fantastisch, aber das psychologische Drama nicht wert. Am besten vermieden.

Might be a cliché, but expect drama. Lots of it. Strap yourself, it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

Italians are set in their ways.
There is no such thing as change unless it is you who leave.
God help you if you fall into the meatball trap with a native Italian MIL.
Plus they are "do me tops".
Too much energy for little return.

Never, ever, ever, ever say anything bad about his mother. Even if he earnestly asks you to be completely truthful lie through your fucking teeth if you have any want for the relationship to continue.

I don't know if it's true of actual modern residents of Italy, but in my experience Italian-American men tend to age like unrefrigerated milk. If you're in it for the long haul, that's something to be aware of. Look at the dad and see if you want to be waking up to that every morning in 20 years.

r13, Meatballs, polpete, are never served with pasta in Italy. They are a main course alone.
A bowl of spaghetti and meatballs is anathema to "real" Italians. You might get shived.
The trick, make them cook for YOU! Always be effusive in praise.

On the plus side, they consume a good amount of olive oil so you won't need a lot of lube.

My advice: be polite and charming and certainly never vulgar. Be well groomed and dress well. Respect everyone he introduces to you. This is appreciated by many cultures but "public face" - fare buon viso a cattiva sorte - is so important to Italians.

My advice is don’t. Each one I dated was seriously fucked up in the head, not to mention entitled. Nasty attitudes when things don’t go their way. Even the ones that are only half.

SO TRUE! In fact, I recently saw a new picture of one I used to date and it’s amazing how he looks like total shit now at only 32. Just 3-4 years ago, he was really attractive. Now he’s fit-fat, bloated face with lots of lines and wrinkles, bags under his eyes, and his hair is mostly gray and receding badly. He was an asshole though so maybe this is karma catching up with him.

Thank you r18.
So often people think what they know of Italian American culture is Italian. It is not. The "spaghetti and meatballs" dish is the perfect example of something that is American, not actually Italian.

Si può sempre fare affidamento sulle fiche bianche su questo sito Web per ridurre gli italiani a basare stereotipi, cliché alimentari e rappresentazioni razziste all'oscuro.
