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.
Of course, this article is based on my personal experience of being the WAG of a born-and-raised Italian man for the last seven years, and based on discussions with Italian girlfriends of Italian men.
Say he happens to be your boss, or maybe the friend of your ex—if everyone is cool with it, he will take the bull by the horns. Well, he reportedly said: “Cultivating whatever gave pleasure to my senses was always the chief business of my life; I never found any occupation more important.Whilst an Italian man often gives you his all whilst he is with you, his attraction may only last till the next woman comes along.Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at things), gender roles are still quite prevalent in Italy.So in addition to getting your man to do to “manly” tasks, you guessed it…they typically like you to take care of tasks traditionally done by women fifty years ago.
