Scottish dating traditions
The same cannot be said about Scottish men, I'm afraid.Which brings me to my first point: This takes some getting used to.
India is just one of many countries which has already made its mark on the Scottish cultural landscape.In some parts of Scotland, this can happen to the bride too!history there is here that makes it so fascinating, it's how wild, colorful, dramatic and just downright magical it all is. At first impression (especially to non-Europeans), the Scottish people may seem a bit 'reserved', but they're actually very warm-hearted, gregarious and friendly - with a very sharp, if dry, sense of humor.Scotland's tumultuous past defines her culture and is at the roots of Scottish traditions, celebrations, myths, art, literature, national pride.... The Scottish 'psyche' and attitudes has a lot of its' roots in an ancient, rich and varied history.You'll find that the Scots are independent, practical, feisty, tough and proud...The unlucky groom-to-be is captured by his friends and is stripped to the waist before bound and 'blackened' with feathers, treacle, soot and flour!
He is then noisily paraded through the village by his friends who endeavour to make the experience as embarrassing as possible.
Unsurprisingly, 4 of them came back with Scottish Shortbread.
Scottish Shortbread has been included on every holiday treat tray that I can remember in my family and being part Scottish that only makes sense.
I get a surprising amount of emails from women - mainly American and Canadian - about dating Scottish men: e.g. North American dude; what does it mean when a Scottish guy asks them out for a drink with all his friends and so on and so forth.
Most of the time I respond because they're just looking for advice/ perspective and as everyone knows, I have publicly lamented about dating in this country so I am more than happy to pass on what I have learned, if anything.
Now, although this is technically English, the strong Scottish accents, and the number of different dialects spoken, can make it very difficult for non-locals to understand what's being said!
