As a Melbourne Boy, he is an entitled coffee snob I'll admit, Melbourne has an incredible coffee scene. So the first time the Aussie was in LA, he could not find ANY coffee, but after a year or so, forcefully, we found coffee shops that satisfies his coffee snobery thirst.
Like how they love a crazy ass adventure and are Sorry boys, we're not into the Twilight vampire look anymore, we like our men bronzed! With roughly 85 percent of the population living only THIRTY ONE miles from the coast, you better bet that most Australians LOVE the beach.
He's thus rather uniquely positioned to compare the pros and cons of each (except Darwin and Hobart, sorry)."Generally, Australian men are a little less socially and romantically savvy, compared to Europeans and even Americans," says James."Dating skills and social intelligence are certainly not subjects taught at school, which is a bit unfortunate. Well, if you're a single man in Perth, James feels sorry for you. Men have a huge number attractive, intelligent women (who will only date a certain kind of guy) and a large number of tourists to choose from," says James.
If you weren't blessed with socially confident parents or, friends who did really well with women when you were at school, it can be a very difficult thing to learn as an adult."In this country we tend to live in large houses, in sprawling car-dominated cities, everyone held at a distance; it's not a tight-knit living arrangement like many European cities."We've also inherited some of the 'sexual repression' of the English, as well as their preference for dealing with all romantic and sexual matters after quite a few drinks."And we're now confusing ourselves further by becoming increasingly more status and money oriented like Americans," he says. And if you live in Adelaide and dig hot bogan chicks, you've got it made. On the flip side, he says it's a brutal environment for women over 25."In Sydney (and Adelaide) you regularly see large groups of attractive women with no guys whatsoever.
During a night at the pub, the owner told her that he regularly received letters from single women in Brisbane and Sydney asking him to set them up with farmers.
Similar pleas were being sent to the post office, he said.
I always found the way American guys try to get girls was a bit aggressive. He is fearless to pathetic puny American standard insects I see a spider, I scream. Speaking of accents, anything he says always sounds better To this day, I am pretty sure I haven't really listened to what the Aussie has been saying. He can say, "I just made a few cheese curds in my pants while kissing a whale" and I am here like 6.
The American boys love to play games with girls, and the whole grinding thing? The flirting/hooking up game was so different in Australia! Americans drink to get drunk and go out, Aussies love a beer with almost anything and drink because they mostly enjoy the taste (they just get hammered in process of enjoying all this grog! Also, the whole "Live to work - Work to live" mentality is so noticeably different between the two cultures. The Aussie comes in, sees the spider and says "that's it? If you don't know footy well, just support the same team he does Aussie boys are incredibly loyal to their footy team. I hear choosing footy teams can make or break a relationship.
The first tour, which took 50 Sydney women to the rural town of Tamworth was a success, with an "85 per cent pick up rate", she said.
More trips for the single women of Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth are on the cards.
But it's not only their friendly demeanor and sexy accents that we're obsessed with, they have so much more to offer.
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.

"The problem is writ large in Australia which is sparsely populated and vast so you get a shift like this and it makes a huge impact." But for 29-year-old Sydney woman Bianca Wignall, one of Ms Petersen's clients, it is a matter of quality, as well as quantity.
