As a young, single British guy crossing the Atlantic for a career in the United States, I was extremely curious about the dating life that was in store.After all, I'd watched my fellow countrymen in film and literature charm the hell out of beautiful American women.If a bumbling buffoon like Hugh Grant could steal Julia Roberts' heart in , anything was possible.

I tried to brush this off—preconceptions are always dangerous when entering any sort of relationship.
Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.
She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
After all, as she put it, "dancers don't make a lot of money." I wasn't the guy that could spoon feed her, so it ended.
But surely not all American girls thought British men had an endless supply of money?
They weren't all obsessed with fame and fortune, were they?Was American culture really as shallow as my friends had warned? She was a down-to-earth Midwesterner with ambitions in New York City theater.She shattered any preconceived notion I had about both actors and American women.She was the antithesis of the ballerina; insisting she pave her own journey in life, irrespective of who she was with.Sadly, when we were suddenly thrust into a long distance relationship, the reality set in that it was putting too much stress on our careers.So with a heavy heart, it was the end of a fairytale love affair.
