    Italian men are indeed such charmers and so good looking.
    I wonder if they still pinch bottoms?

    Oh this cracks me up! 🙂 If I weren’t already taken, I’d totally try some of these. Don’t know if I could do it without laughing though. 🙂

    So funny! I especially love “which one is your Vespa parked outside”

    Eleonora, thank you for this, it really made me laugh! Italian charmers are irresistible, and the Italian mating game is so much fun – also thanks to the sweetness of the Italian language. I remember a couple of years ago when my Italian cousin came to New York for a 3-week visit, he didn’t speak almost any English, and guess what phrases he wanted to learn first? “Hi. You’re gorgeous. Let’s make love. Goodbye.” And you bet he used them, although it didn’t work that well in the streets of Manhattan 😀

    Hi there. my name is dee. i found your site as i was browsing for anything Italian. Im Americano. 6months ago I met the dream man of my life. we met in another country- both on vacation. It was love at first site. We had 2 wonderful memorable nights. I miss him so so so much. I gave him my card and did not take his info as he promised to get in touch by email at least even to share pictures. So I was sure I would hear from him, besides the amazing time we had. But still 6months later- no email no contact.
    Im at a point where I want to take a leap and come to Naples to search for him. I cant find him anywhere online…my heart aches for this man and i cant get him out of my mind. i have to believe he lost the card with my info. i hate that i didnt take his contacts, please do you have any suggestions on how i can find this love of my life? is there any equivalent to a yellow pages for Italiy? how do i find this Italian man from Naples?
