Your country sounds like it is full of different values and attitudes on dating.
You are the first male I have heard say personality is more important on looks. It would be good if more males had the same attitude as you.
If the woman in the last picture is famous in Australia maybe we should all move there.
Yeah, it is.
I used to think America was similar to Australia but after reading some things on the internet I think our countries are very different. For one, the people I know who have been to America have all told me your food is twice the size of ours and your electrical appliances and CDs are very cheap. There is an emphasis with young people on looks too and people are co-dependent and influenced by the media. Not all of them are this way of course but itís one of the things that stand out on the net.
Clubs, pubs and parties are different here too. In my town we have an ex servicemanís club that is mainly full of old people, another full of gay people and another full of people that dress like punks and donít wash their hair. We have Panthers and a Parramatta Leagues club but the only time my wife and I have gone there is to see concerts. We have barbecues here instead of parties and my wife has gatherings at our house with some of her friends from church. Most of my friends avoid Panthers now because they say there is too much violence going on in them and there have been a few people that have been attacked by gangs on the way back to their cars at night.
Dancing isnít as popular here as I heard it is in America. We didnít have a prom in High School and my first girlfriend and I usually ditched the formals and evenings to do something better unless we were performing at them.
