Loving them, maybe these lacks are just another reason why I like them.
If one refuses to recognize that people from different countries are different, he's hiding the truth, because you can't say for example that the English are the same as the Spanish, or the Chinese the same as the Argentinians, etc., we are different, with some similar things, but different.
When I meet English people, they're friendly with me, but maybe it's because they like me. You know, for my tastes, my love for England, my appearance, me myself being very English sometimes :), etc. But one could say: oh that one was friendly just because he/she was drinking the whole night. So I wonder if they would behave the same with other foreign people who are not the same as me. In fact sometimes I see they don't.
Of course I find some English who are not friendly, it's normal. But their behaviour is really strange and sometimes I wonder: what happened there in England? Must be something really serious.
I don't know if it's a problem of "coldness" in the English character, because such things are quite old, and when you hear an English person using a very...er... "warm" choice of words eh eh, you wouldn't say they're cold. The same for Oasis: when you hear them insulting someone, you wouldn't say they're cold, they're more like volcanos ahaha
About Italians being friendly, one would say we typically want to make friends with everybody, but I'm not like that, I was only sometimes.
If it's a problem of "coldness" in the English, then we Italians have the opposite problem: being sometimes too "hot" (and I don't mean being beautiful, lol) we make mistakes.
Anyway I see English & Italians usually like each other, sometimes too much.
I think the English have some kind of paranoia... And it's a real pity, because to my eyes I totally love them, they are like a beautiful angel, even the ugly ones ahaha see the metaphor.
...but many English are ruining the English angel... as children playing...
Paranoia is a thought process characterized by excessive anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs concerning a perceived threat towards oneself. Recent scientific research has revealed that suspiciousness is much more common than had previously been believed.
"...the Irish man, who complained about the same phenomenon, had an explanation for all this. He claimed that the reason why the English are paranoid, is because of all the bad things they did to the world. Behind the tough facade I sensed alot of fear, there was huge insecurity. But was that really because of history? the youth of a culturally and politically powerful nation getting caught between shame and feelings of superiority? or is it just classic psychology? arrogance as often is the case covering up hidden insecurities?..."
You know behind all this I was thinking about girls and love, and here's a proper video:
that's my reality...
