What I've learned from the Italians on how to be manly. Leave the top 3 buttons on your shirt unbuttoned, the top 4 if you're feeling extremely sexy. Never leave the 5th one unbuttoned, it indicates that you have low standards. Women like uneven yellow teeth so if you're lucky enough to have them, flaunt them. Don't brush your teeth, be aware of showers and baths too. Be obnoxious and loud. Give women cheap gifts, as long as the gifts have thin layer of goldish looking metal they're happy.  Be browsing the internet on your Iphone when the plane lands, the air-hostesseses are strapped in and can't stop you. Use your hands while talking no matter if you hit something or someone. Use your hands while driving, one hand should be out the window, the other on the button for your horn. Feel free to abandon either location for short while while you make gestures at other drivers or people on or close to the road.

The Dutch people are usually very polite and considerate but they could take a look at how the British behave in lines. There is no such thing as a line in the mind of The Dutch people. It's a battle of who can be first. And there are no prisoners taken. Cutting in front of someone is the normal way of life here.
