In many cultures it would be rude or a status thing to let the woman pay.
I have heard that Italy is the same with men in a sense that they don’t have long term relationships and run from marriage or something deeper.
To be honest, all the long-time friends I have now are from failed Tinder dates.
I find it amazing how I was able to build platonic relationships through a dating app which is like a fairy Godmother to the miserable singles. I’m On My Way (@psimonmyway) on I’ve recently discussed on Facebook that girls (foreign or not) always get things for free in Israel.
This seemed to be one of the best features of my life in Tel Aviv.
I found it so easy to be here not because of the men but the people of Israel in general.
BTW, do you have a problem swearing in your posts or is it against the community blog rules?
You are only off by one letter so might as well go all the way lol In further studies and real life interactions, I found out that some are obliging themselves to pay because they wanted to get something in return from the girls.
In general, when you are dating an Israeli man, they keep the tradition of charm, allure, and passion that will make you fall head over feet. Sure, they might be the most chill people I’ve ever met but not when it comes to relationships or dating. They just don’t want to engage nor participate in a deeper level of intimacy because of a myriad of reasons. I am a pure believer of the going with the flow adage. If it happens to you, don’t be confused if one day, they want to stop seeing you and couldn’t explain why. It seems like it’s a responsibility for them when in fact, we can all just chill and avoid ruining something beautiful. It was still hard to believe that I am making a life here, creating relationships, having neighbours you can share meals with, going to a bar where everyone addresses you with the first name, etc. My only concern is that they feel like they have to do it by default because of their gender.I respect how we all, men and women alike, opt to see things differently and you’re welcome to do so! I have no problem opening up my home to a guest in need. But where in the article did you do anything nice in return? When did you return the favor of their hosting (and I’m not talking about some sort of sex obligation)? I am a grown woman and wouldn’t play the guessing game.I have arrived at a conclusion that nobody is in the middle ground here. It’s a municipal pastime here and everyone have joined the bandwagon. I understand that some things don’t work out and it’s okay! My line of work is not also recognised here which made everything more difficult. But I asked myself: “am I willing to do what I need to do in order for this to work? I know it’s not the point of the article but I hope you can set an example of how these wonderful Israeli men deserve to be treated in return.” Obviously, this bloke doesn’t have any idea who I am. I hate being caught up in a situation that people have to argue who will pay.Strange, It seems to be becoming popular as women are standing up to mens double standards of dating. So happy to be out of the dating scene, I hated it so much 🙂 I’ve been married for nearly 15 years, so dating has long been the furthest thing from my mind.But I don’t think that I could deal with the nuances of dating someone from another country.I am a woman who is not expecting anything when it comes to set up dates.When a girl friend tells me, I simply say OK because I know I’ve got nothing to lose.Let me tell you more about my newfound wisdom about dating Israeli men. I’m sure you love having a free place to stay whenever you do whatever you feel like that night. I return the favour by buying the next round of drinks or anything that you deem equal.100% loyal readers of this blog are very open-minded but at the same time, 100% of passers-by will choose to find the way I write my experiences a grave stereotype to mankind. And I’m sure you love having a personal butler that morning. I have no problem with buying drinks because I’m enjoying someone’s company. You make it sound like men should be at your service and do whatever you want. To be honest, I’ve offered to pay many dates but then they always insist.Aside from making friends in a foreign city, I also use it to market my blog/business which is, in turn, 100% effective all the time — to the point that Israeli men recognised me in the streets of Tel Aviv. You will always get invited because the default setting of the Israeli men is to pay for everything.That was a sensational return of investment for me. #Tel Aviv #Trisha Vx Israel #Israel #Vibe Israel Photo ? In the comment box section of this article, an Israeli reader bashed me and wrote exactly this: I’m sure you love it when you can go out every night for free.
