Can you please shed some light on how the UK dating scene is different than the American dating scene? I will be heading to University in the UK from having been in High School in the USA. Also note that this is being asked by a shy guy, if that makes any difference. Thanks!
What are the differences in the dating world between the UK and the US?
What Girls Said 2
In my personal experience, men in the UK are more easygoing and relaxed. They are more confident at approaching people as it is in their culture.
I don't know what it's like in the US, but here people tend to say hi and even have casual chats about their lives with strangers, then part and never see each other again.
If you go into a pub, people will talk to you like you're an old friend. It's very friendly and relaxed and I was really surprised and still can't get used to it after years of living here.0
Guys in the US are more straightforward, if they want to ask a girl out on a date, they'll do it immediately. While guys in the UK are usually more reserved, they wouldn't be so open about it and would probably take it slow, even when asking a girl out.1

There is much more respect for women, and generally more regard for one another between the sexes1
I'd love to know that as well. I get the sense from Americans that dating is taken seriously as is the whole exclusivity talk. When me and my girlfriend first start seeing each other, she met my friends and I introduced her to them as my girlfriend and that's when we began the relationship.
Dating seems a lot more formal in the US than the UK, though I could be wrong.0
