This handsome devil is Petrarch who immortalized the object of his desire (Laura) by writing over 300 sonnets to her in the course of his lifetime.
An American girl isn’t so much into ‘the chase’ — she generally doesn’t run away for too long, or too far away.
A recent commenter from Australia managed to accomplish both, and I’ve been thinking about what she wrote ever since.
On one level, I totally agreed with her, but there was something about her opinions that just didn’t quite square with my experiences. She didn’t mention her real name, and I wouldn’t reveal it anyway.
Well, I already knew that we were doing it wrong, but this reader explains “how.” I guess I should also point out that this discussion mostly includes Italian women with men from Australia, the U.

I haven’t been with all of the Italians in Italy to make a scientific assessment, but I do hang out with a lot of them.
I can give you the rundown based on things I’ve heard from people who have slept with Italian humans or from talking with my friends in general.
She might even ditch her friend for half the night, depending how interested in you she is.
