Brit asian dating

In Britain they’re called “Hundreds and thousands”. She likes to point to random things in the house and tell Chris what we call it in America “We call that suitcase”.Most of the time it’s something that shares the same name in England, but for laughs, Chris will call it something completely different to mess with her “We call that a travelling box”. At first, when we first started dating Chris thought I was an alcoholic!To this day, there are still things that Chris and I stumble upon that have different words or phrases in our countries. It will throw me off from time to time in our conversations because naturally my mind has to “translate” his sentence and covert it within seconds before I truly understand what he was talking about.

If we were Skyping I would mention that I was drinking cider (it would be around 10 am).Yes they drink tea more than we do, but it’s not like Chris carries around tea bags in his wallet waiting for his clock to turn to 4pm. The way we communicate, the way our relationship develops, and our cultures are not that diverse, but it’s enough to feel a bit amazed as the days and weeks go on. He occasionally drinks tea, dries his laundry all around his bedroom, and finds it weird that in America we use window screens to prevent bugs from flying into the house- even though he complained about a bee getting in our room in England before!He prefers to wear casual blazers on a night out, and not complain to his waiter when he orders a beef burger and instead they serve him a chicken breast fillet.But here it’s not uncommon with my family and friends, to just refer to hot apple cider as “cider”. The boys certainly do present themselves better in Britain than the American boys I’ve seen.I wouldn’t say they are more fashionable than anyone, but I don’t see boys walking around town with their pants hanging off of their butts or wearing over sized sneakers, looking like a clown.
