Thinking of dating an Italian? Here's why you should and why you shouldn't.


     Nobody knows whether it’s about history, or the sunshine of the Mediterranean Sea, Italians are always considered romantic people with warm hearts, no matter men or women; however, some may also think Italians are all party animals, so are they good for dating? Hereunder are some reasons why you should or should not date them.


Why you should date Italians?



1 - They're beautiful

Italians live up to their reputation as being some of the most beautiful people on earth.


2 - It will never be boring
Ruled by passion, Italians are - like their beloved Mount Etna (volcano in Sicily) - constantly ready to erupt. Your relationship will likely be unpredictable and have more peaks than the Dolomites (famous Italian mountains). Luckily after every raging argument over who put too much salt in the pasta, you get to make up.

3 - You get great holidays

Romantics have flocked to Italy for centuries, drawn by the stunning landscapes, the wine and the sunshine. Whether you’re dating an Italian while living in the country or get to visit together, you will be treated to a private tour of one of the most captivating countries in the world.


4 - You get to speak Italian

Why many operas were written in Italian? Because the language is good for stories, and dating an Italian means you’ll soon be singing the Romance language fluently.


5 - Delicious dinners

Italians are born cooks and express their love through food. Italians are also excellent at picking the perfect wine and are always on hand to make the morning coffee.


     Well, nobody is perfect, so are Italians. Hereunder is why you shouldn't date them.


1 - They will always complain about the food you make and the wine you choose

Nobody will be able to make lasagna as good as their mamma, so don't even try, and definitely don't suggest that your national cuisine is on a par.


2 - Family lunches and dinners

You have to attend and they last longer than the Queen's Coronation. Don't forget the added pressure of meeting their (many) relatives, who will take a lot of convincing to believe you're good enough for their darling.

3 - The drama

Dating an Italian means you'll be expected to indulge their constant rants, outbursts and mood swings, often food-related.


4 - You'll always be on a catwalk

Italy didn't get its reputation as fashion capital of the world for nothing, and if your outfit isn't up to scratch, they'll have no problem letting you know about it.


5 - The cheating

Italians aren't exactly known for being the loyal type. Most Italians see this as the norm and don't even bother to hide it, but it may come as a shock if you took them at their word when they declared their undying love for you.


That’s what Italian people like. Some people love them while some people hate them, but all their characteristics make them one of the most attractive groups in the world.
