New country, new rules! If, like me, you want to explore this world, you will find it very interesting. I spent almost a year and half on different dating apps until my soon-to- be wife, who was also my best American friend, realized she was in love with me.
I met her on the first weeks I was in California at an event my host family’s gym organized. It was a free workout and I was curious so I went with them. A party at a local bar followed the class and it’s where she started talking to me and introduced me to her friends. And it is how our friendship started and so on.
Because being an au pair is not only about taking care of kids, it is also about the cultural experience and having a personal life outside the family life; this is very important for our sanity. And dating is pretty fun if you don't take it too seriously. It's also really cool to meet new people and make new friends, discover new places in your city and keep on improving your English, but remember to always protect yourself and stay safe.
