I had a stunning revelation just a few minutes ago. I stopped at a gas station to pick up a couple of drinks, which were an Italian-style iced coffee and the French-based "Perrier" sparkling mineral water... and I was driving around in my European-make automobile, listening to one of my favorite artists, who is also European and I was like DAMN, I'm an actual European at heart, living in the U. S.
How European are you (if you're not actually from Europe)? I have European lineage, but I've never been, born and raised in the States!
I am half American, half European... so I am half for sure. On my American side I have English, Irish, and Swedish lineage. But I think I act more European than American. I am laid back, but I am also more reserved in public. Most of my favorite bands are from Europe as well, I like the clothing styles, and the weather better over there (at least from when I lived over there).
I'm pretty much for 100% European. In the way I act, in sense of style, in sense of looks and because I was born here. Only thing I really like from America are the cartoons like South Park. Other than that I really can't think of anything I like more American style than European style.
My grandpa or great grandpa was a Eurasian, that's as close as I have to being a European lol. I don't know about Europeans fashion style, but the only European thing about me is that I love their chocolates lol 😂
I really want to move to Sweden, but I've heard their immigration laws are kind of strict. I think Europeans have the right idea about environmental and social programs. My ancestors would probably roll over in their graves if they knew I wanted to head back across the pond, but I am not proud to be a 'Murican.
Sometimes I see americans idealizing about Europe and how it's more refined, educated or stuff like that. But here we look at america as the core of the world with all the money, power and technology like its a dream to be there. I know it has nothing to do with the question, I'm just stating it. I'm european obviously.
I'm European and I act more American than European. I also use more American products, watch American sports, listen to American music, watch American movies/shows... I'm probably less "European" than you, though I was born there xD
Except for not being extreme left-wing, I'm mainly culturally European, speaking French, Spanish and (horrible) German, preferring Classical to almost anything (except good Jazz and R&B), and preferring Italian food over American, and enjoying going to museums and historical monuments.
I am, however American when it comes to sports - Baseball is my favorite.
probably about 5%. i speak italian and have a decent amount of european friends, but that's about it.
I don't think that makes you European, it just shows how much of an influence European culture has in the US. All the best cars, cuisine, coffee, clothes etc... are all European. Not to mention American people are all descendants of Europeans so I guess European culture is well within your taste.
