Although everyone is different, stereotypes do exist for a reason—and there is no shortage of stereotypes for Italian men!So what can you expect if you’re thinking about dating an Italian man?
They are proud of their heritage and love their home country. This may also be what makes Italian men so self-assured when approaching foreign women.While he probably won’t break up with you just because his mom doesn’t like you, it will cause him deep hurt and strain to know the two most important women in his life don’t get along.If she criticizes you, he may not stand up for you as definitively as you want since he doesn’t want to go against his mother.I hate stereotypes, but the first thing that I have to tell you is : DON’T TOUCH THEIR MOM! This is something that probably works in Italy and in some other country in Europe but not overseas.Most of Italian men are definitely mama’s boys and most of them still live at home! Keep in mind that if the relationship develop you’ll be always the second love of his life, and his mom will be forever the best coocking woman all over the world. Italian women don’t make a step in the man’s direction. Get prepared to receive more compliments in one hour that you have received during all your life.
