Dating an aussie
His fantastic ‘work hard, play hard’ attitude means you’re getting the best of both worlds. Whether it’s what you want to hear or not – you’ll always know where you stand. He works hard but also knows how to have a good time. Australian men are forward and aren’t afraid to tell you exactly what they think. Anyways, let's be real, my man does follow the Aussie stereotypes -- Blonde hair, surfer, beach bum, makes a mean BBQ, loves a good beer, and rides a kangaroo to work! " Everyone knows that Australia has some wild and terrifying creatures that are ultimately out to kill you, so the tiny and unintimidating insects here are nothing to the Aussie kind. And hey, he can easily play off as my hero when he catches a spider! Not having meat in a meal is unacceptable Yes, there are vegetarian Australians, but after dating my Aussie and meeting most of his friends, every meal required some sort of meat (mostly BBQ of sorts) otherwise it was considered as just an appetizer. Americans love his accent I, being one of the Americans that fell in love with his accent, obviously, but the Aussie will go to the bar, smile at someone (being nice, not flirty) and they will nod and turn back to their friends.

My Aussie and I have been together for 5 years now. And I love the Aussies, but let me tell you, there are some things about dating an Australian man that I found VERY different about dating an American guy. It may be a culture thing or the whole "you always want what you can't have" thing, but I absolutely love dating an Aussie. ) Anyways, I love dating an Australian and here are the reasons why: 2. No matter how much you fight it, they will always love their vegemite I don't get it nor will I ever understand it, but after moving to the States, the Aussie misses his Vegemite. It's like they shorten all their words because they don't have enough time to formulate full sentences!

It seemed like blasphemy, but such is the case when you grow up with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches right at your doorstep every day. I remember pleading for a gradual re-introduction to red meat before I moved to Australia, and I soon learned that I’d have no choice but to love it. There’s no whining or whinging when you’re camping out in the bush or when you don’t want to watch The Footy Show after just watching hours of the actual footy game. But when you’re dating an Australian, you’ll learn to nod when he tells you some really (I mean like really) obscure score, and you’ll learn to live with this never-ending game. Life stops for such events, and you’d better hope Australia (and in the case of State of Origin, your preferred team) wins, otherwise your boyfriend will be one unhappy sports fan.
And then I found myself dating an Australian who, for the most part, really couldn’t be fussed going to the beach. Each summer I’d be up and ready for the beach, swimmers on and sunblock spread thoroughly (re: not wearing enough for Australian sun), and he’d want to go the mall or to the hardware store. Not only did I learn that not all Australians live their lives at the beach or surfing, but they also don’t use the word “shrimp”…which ruins every American attempt at pretending to be an Australian by saying, “Throw another shrimp on the barbie, mate! Australians love their steak, their snags, their rissoles, their lamb, their meat pies — the list goes on.
An adventurous spirit is at the heart of every Aussie bloke. His strong value on friendship means he is great boyfriend material. Those men down under love their meat and can cook a mean BBQ, so you’ll never go hungry. You’ll tighten that tum in no time from constantly laughing at his jokes.
Australian men love nothing more than a good laugh. To the point of three, Aussie blokes are adventurers so you better get that passport ready!
