The summer heat always brings out the Latin lover in us all. So, it’s the perfect time for the release of my latest Our Paesani column on ItaliansRus.com. This one is about the facts of dating in Italy. Before you book a ticket to the Boot in the hopes of meeting Mr. Right, get your facts straight about dating customs and real Italian men. Trust me, there’s more to them than those firm bodies and bedroom eyes. As my zio tells my single sister, “Don’t trust the wooden nickel.” Ok, so I don’t really know what that means, but I know that you should be cautious about trusting Italian men, who I’m assuming are like wooden nickels. Good guess, right?
