Length of average dating rituals
Expect a girl to talk about being a good cook and mentioning her “girly” hobbies.
I was really surprised that guys in the US often brag about their great cooking skills to their dates.
A guy will also talk a lot about his manly hobbies – hunting, shooting, fishing, doing manly sports, jumping with a parachute, DIY projects etc.
Avoid orchids (also separation connotation), carnations (too formal and remind of Soviet time) and lilies (smell is too acute).
Of course being too intimate after one date is a “no-no” everywhere; one-night stands are never wise if you want a long-term relationship.
But in general – people kiss if they feel like it and do whatever feels right at each particular moment.
Long-stemmed red roses are a safe bet and the most appreciated flowers, since they symbol love.
They are expensive, but no need to present a dozen or more – one red rose is considered equally romantic and will be much appreciated.
