Irish dating websites uk

But how does the perception of Irish men by overseas women compare to the realities of dating an Irish male?

Mary Kenny, a relationship counsellor who also runs a dating website, says that her service has noticed a large increase in overseas women seeking Irish men for relationships.

“Most of my friends are from small towns, and they don’t have many choices when it comes to dating.

“They meet someone in school, date that person for 15 years and then have kids and/or get married to them.

“In Australia, men are more conscious about their hair and clothing.

You only have to look at the mixed-rules series every year to see the difference between the Australian males and the Irish.

“It’s often only when they get very drunk towards the end of the night that they have confidence to approach women.

Despite the changes in Irish men, that mentality is still very prevalent.” Below, three non-Irish females describe their experiences of Irish men in relationships: Fabiola Galeziewska, 24, (pictured above) from Poland, has been in a relationship with an Irish man for the past eight months “There are different approaches with Irish men.

“Often, I find overseas women can be quite upfront if they are out there and single-minded about what they want and how they want to be treated.” Despite the increasingly multicultural nature of Irish society, some male dating techniques remain firmly embedded within the culture.

“Men here still hunt in packs, and often go out in big gangs and stick together,” says Kenny.

“My experience is that Irish lads are more gentlemanly than many other cultures.

Perhaps it’s the education, or else it’s the fact that the Irish mammy is a very strong part of society here. “You see almost helpless men who have been raised by their mammy until they are 40 or 50.

Our goal is simple - to add love, romance and fun to the lives of single people.
