But knowing some of the cultural differences – who makes the first move, kissing on a first date, how soon to call after a date – may help you avoid awkward situations, or at least stop you from getting hurt or hurting someone else unintentionally.In Europe, getting to know someone romantically is fairly laid back.
For French men, it's all about the chase, and playing ‘hard to get' is part of the game.
If you're interested in someone, maintain eye contact – if you aren't, don't.
The Spanish have a reputation as romantic and passionate people.
If a woman shows too much interest too soon, she may scare a man away.
Of course, every relationship is different and how yours develops will depend on who you both are and the chemistry between you.
