In this second installment of my Olympic non-coverage (for those of you even less interested in the Games than me, the Olympics are currently being held in Vancouver, a wonderful city famous for rain, sushi, and high quality plants), we'll go deeper into the prospect of dating a Canadian. Let's pretend I haven't been at your house to watch hockey and seen you drool over a certain team (I won't betray your allegiances). I like them because they're very ambitious, and that's the #1 quality I look for in a man, but they're not New York ambitious, which usually involves a lot of Red Bull and the term "bottles and models." They're wholesome and like country music but are also really focused, which is something we have in common.
I've located an American who has actually dated a few. Unlike a lot of "creative types" I've dated (writers, actors, etc), athletes aren't in competition with me. But there's a big diff between Western and Eastern Canada.
Sky has a downstairs pub and a few different rooms to dance to different drum machines and mingle with different crowds.
Everyone is welcome: boys, girls, trans*, cis, queer, straight, and anybody in between.
Sassy: I broke my elbow while I was dating one of the hockey players, and he had his trainer hook me up to their cryo cuff and all this crazy rehab equipment in his hotel room. He sat there and watched TV with me while I was plugged into all this stuff. I'd say date Canadians because they're a good mix of being internationally savvy and aware yet they are wholesome and humble.

I can't reveal her identity, but save it to say she's blonde, beautiful, wise and with it. Western Canada is more like the Midwest—don't try to dazzle them with your Vuitton bag—just be down to earth.
Sassy: I don't target hockey players intentionally, it's just kind of worked out that way.
I say “the country you’re in” and not “the nationality of the person you’re dating” because I believe that, at least in the beginning, you cannot assume that a local will know the dating rules in your country; on the other hand, if you are the displaced one, you may already know all too well about this little thing called “cultural differences”.
Here I’m assuming that one of the two persons involved is a local.
In what sense are they very Canadian and not French at all? Not all French Canadians are Montrealers, there are other cities in Quebec and there are rural areas and their fashions differ somewhat.
