I have met very few americans in my life time, but the few i have met are very nice and outgoing. The latest guy i met was quite good with his words, he was good at making the convo going (pretty much no awkward pauses), he joked around, asked a lot of questions about me, complimented me and he just made me feel like i was a very interesting person.
I live in Norway and i have yet to meet a guy who acts like that. Culturally being so open and friendly qith strangers isn't really a thing unless you're wasted. I find it very attractive and i was wondering if most guys or/and girl in america acts like that.

This tends to be more of a US Midwest and South thing. It still exists in other places but is less common. In the Midwest and South it's not too unusual to start talking to a complete stranger in the checkout line at a store, and keeping talking for a half hour or longer after they are checked out.
I recently opened a new bank account and it took forever because the manager and I were talking so much. I think it took over an hour to open the account. By the time we were done I knew where he lived, how many kids he had, what kind of landscaping he had at home, the kind of YouTube videos he liked, and a bunch of other stuff.
I've always heard that Brits were a LOT more reserved and private than Americans, but I've never heard that about Nordic countries.0

Here's my grandparents' experience with Americans: they're really warm and friendly on the surface. When my family was living in California, people would be very sweet to them, but they never included them in anything. It was a very lonely time for them all, according to my grandpa, aunt and mother.0
