Dating dating in europe

This is exactly the problem that Europeans face, they make finding a partner an endless quest that resembles the quest of the grail, over complicating their lives and sometimes missing out on necessary learning experiences of short-term failed relationships.The European date format is something that creates a lot of confusion with visitors from the US.After making their own lives very complicated, if a European actually manages to attain a relationship, you often will not even know how to spot it.When the members of the couple are out and about, they will probably not mention their partner very often or obsess about them (of course, there are always exceptions) and will not be super-touchy and obvious in public when they are together.The reason for this is that there are only 12 months, thus if one of the numbers is above 13 you can deduce whether the writer is using US or European date format. While this European date format is unusual for visitors, it is actually the US date format which is different with the majority of the countries in the world using European date format over the American counterpart.

Most Americans will be used to the date format that puts the month before the day.Interestingly the European date format is not used by the European Union itself, and for international affairs many countries opt instead to use ‘ISO 8601’ standard date format.Here the organisation is closer to the US dating but with the year placed at the start, for example ‘2010/12/20’.Famously, though the Terrorist attacks are referred to world-wide as ‘9/11’, in the European date format used by most territories this would actually denote the ninth of November, which interestingly is the date that the Berlin Wall came down.European date format can only cause this misunderstanding when the date is of that month.
