25 incredible things you didn't know about Estonia
Whereupon it is polite for a gentleman to refuse such a sweet gesture. My own first superficial impression of American men was their immaculate appearance. No greasy hair, broken teeth or black socks with sandals. A typical American man showers at least once a day, be it a fancy Wall Street racketeer or a hardworking labourer.

Be it macho or metrosexual, a successful cohabitation and marriage with an American male begins with proper house training.
As a first step, literally, you must teach them to take their white sneakers off in the hallway. This is very painstaking work.
