Talking point: Australian football is kind of like American football, but way more confusing.
As a general rule, whoever suggested the outing should at least, offer to pay first.
But it’s becoming more common to split payments on dates – especially when you’re both students – so don’t be alarmed if your date wants to chip in as well. There are more Australians with Facebook accounts than without.
It’s a useful intermediary in a culture that stresses getting to know people first, and sending someone a friend request is a nice way of saying that you’d like to do just that.
We hope you’re now feeling a little more prepared to enter the world of Australian dating.
There’s a reason they call it the ‘Australian tan’ you know. Getting hitched to an Australian man means no more time wasted queueing at the Australian embassy or fruit picking! And if you’re really into surfer dudes you’re in good hands - surfing is considered a national sport. OZ is one of the sunniest places on earth so there's no surprise they love the outdoors. Their rugby is like our football only it means GREAT bums and GREAT legs. Personally, we’ve never seen a skinny Australian man.
Snorkelling, exploring the bush, camping - you name it girl. Every Aussie heads down to the beach to catch some rays - it's like popping down to the shops! They take care of themselves, yeah, but you’ll never come across a pretty boy.
This gives you some room to get to know each other before you make up your minds.
Firstly, it doesn’t matter if you’re a boy or a girl, anyone can approach anyone.
A very average Aussie relationship might go something like this: You meet at work or school, and you talk and get to know each other.
The first time you hang out, it’s probably not on a formal date.
But don't worry, if he's an Aussie he'll always be there to protect you.
