A French man or Spaniard might tell you he loves you after only a few weeks but don't panic: It usually just means ‘I really like you'.
Women can say it back to a man with the same meaning – it doesn't mean you should be moving in together or planning a wedding any time soon.
If a woman shows too much interest too soon, she may scare a man away.
As in France, a game of chase and refusal must take place before any form of ‘date' will materialise.
In the Netherlands you might take a walk or go on a bike ride.
In Germany, couples don't start with formal dating either and it's only after a series of informal meetings – walks, dinner, cinema, theatre – that they might start being seen as a ‘couple'.
It's also common for couples to keep the fact that they're an item to themselves.
In Europe, getting to know someone romantically is fairly laid back.
People don't tend to go on ‘dates' with complete strangers but instead often get to know someone who's already in their circle or the friend of a friend, and then it ‘just happens' and they decide to go out together alone. There aren't too many rigid rules, either: "In the Netherlands there are no set rules – you might do all or nothing on the first or tenth date," and, "the timescale between the first date and having sex in France could be anything from 20 years to 20 seconds," said European expats.
