If you are a genuine city girl who has met her match on a cowboy dating site, you need to learn several things if you want to keep your man. He is different from you in so many ways and you will have to show honest interest in his lifestyle to make your dating experience more comfortable for you both.
Don’t make fun of his manners
If you have only dated city guys, you might find his courteous nature a little bit weird, and even funny. Yes, he will say ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’ very often, and address other people with ‘ma’am’ and ‘sir’, but that is just the way he was raised. His mother taught him to treat others with respect and be polite no matter what. However, keep in mind that he also wants to be treated the same way, so don’t make fun of him or humiliate him in front of his friends. Act like a lady and learn how to appreciate his gestures.
Learn about his hobbies
Your partner’s favorite hobbies may differ drastically from yours. While you probably enjoy going to the movies or reading books, he prefers spending his spare time outdoors, where he can go fishing or camping. However, you should allow him to impress you with his skills and teach you something new. Remember how you’ve always wanted to learn how to ride a horse? Now is your chance!
Experience Southern cuisine
If you start dating a country guy, you will probably find out that he often eats foods you may be unfamiliar with. Ask him to take you out to a restaurant that specializes in country cuisine and learn more about his favorite meals. Since most cowboys know to cook, maybe your new partner will volunteer to make you a few of his signature dishes. If you really want to win him over, roll up your sleeves, download some Southern recipes (or call his mom) and make him a delicious country dinner.
Learn those country moves
In case your cowboy isn’t the black sheep of the family, he probably enjoys listening to country music and line dancing. If you have no idea how to move to this type of music, just ask him to be your private dance instructor.
