    Definitely true, I have friends in the states and they never text. No worries Jess, it hasn't stopped me from planning a trip to MIA next year. The girls over there are completely different to English girls. If an English girl threw her number at you, she's most likely interested in you. Another strange thing, Americans never put kisses on the end of messages, I haven't been the first one to notice that. Over in England, it's a normal thing to do. The accent deffo worked a treat and got lucky but I think I would of had more luck if I knew what I was getting myself into and figured out the American way of doing things . How can you keep in contact with someone if they don't text and hardly answer their phone?

    Well, as the book says, megaz, She's Just Not That Into You. Like if ia girl IS interested, she WILL return calls and texts. if she's not, she won't. It's that simple.

    Guys who use emoticons (kisses, smileys and the like) over here are gay. Not literally, but guys don't text other guys emoticons in America. Maybe to girls, though I refuse to do it was well.

    Texting is easier if you need a response to a quick question. or if you're in a loud place where a person might not hear you on the phone. It's also good as it eliminates a lot of the awkwardness of hitting someone up that you met at a bar or club or whatever if you actually have to talk to them. And flirting is a little easier too. But, yeah, if you're driving and trying to meet someone and they insist on texting? NOT the right time.

    Oh shut up Matt, you would always answer MY texts and you know it. Then just bitch about it afterwards and pay me the dollar hahaha.

    I ALWAYS use kisses megaz. Like, for the last two years I have put xxx at the end. Then, the other day I was asked why I put the porn symbol in my texts! I had no idea that was a porn sign, lol.

    Anyway, don't you change your style for the Americans. I still spell all my words with u's and s's, and I put smileys on EVERYTHING, and I have no intention of changing. Nuff said.

    That's what you get for being so cute Joe. And if I recall, in this case, YOU did not reply!

    Next time, don't date the crazy ones.

    When i'm texting my male friends, ofcourse i NEVER put kisses or anything like that but with the girls down here, if you don't put in a kiss or two atleast, or the odd smile emotion, they kinda take it the wrong way like your pissed off with them. Jess.. is it just me being paranoid or have you noticed it since you've been living in America??

    Girls in the USA or England? Both girls and guys in the UK use smileys and kisses, but here mostly girls. Although, Joe, Gus and other boys I know use smileys. For some reason Americans call them emoticons. So annoying.

    At home in London, yeah you gotta show the girls the smileys so they know all is good

    I am a smiley virgin, just for the record. And it's gonna take somebody REEEEEAAAAL special to get me to give that up. Cuz I'm sure once I do I'll turn into a giant smiley whore like all you Brits.

    You're just lucky I never got in a car accident, Jess. And now with the iPhone, I really can't text and drive at all. It's impossible.

    in germany it's the same like in britain, everyone uses smileys. and they are called smileys, not emoticons.

    that's because no one over there in the states is able to drive a car.
    we were laughing so hard all the time, because nobody was able to park his car, without a second person giving him signs in the mirror. and we saw so many accidents, because no one uses his turning lights.
    i text all the time with my iphone, even on the "autobahn" doing 240km/h (150mph). a speed you will only reach, when you'r driving through the rockies without brakes

    Yeah. I'm all for bragging about reckelss behavior. But seriously texing on an iPhone and driving is about 100x worse than driving shitfaced.

    And also, people in the US are FAT. I mean, the average American woman is a size 15. No joke. Now, that is definitely not the case in South Beach, but you do see plenty of larger folks arounf here. Do not worry AT ALL. If you're in a group of girls, you're good to go. Especially since you're young-ish. Seriosuly, stop worrying about it now. You won't be the smallest person in the club, but I guarantee you wont be the largest either.

    Enjoy your vacatio and report back and let us know how it went!
    Matt - many thanks for your post, unfortunately I have not seen it before I went away. I would have been much reassured by what you've had to say.
    And just how right you are!!!!

    No, I was not the smallest girl in clubs, but My oh My - I was absolutely not the largest, far from that. In fact, what I forgot generally is that in the US sizes are larger than here. Even when one makes an adjustment from the UK to the US size, equivalent US size is quite a lot larger.

    So I didn't need to worry at all. In fact we had fantastic time and enjoyed our stay very much. Went to great restaurants, Nobu (wow as good as London if not better), STK at Gansevoort (the best fois gras I've had this year), Delano (delicious seafood, lobster cooked to perfection), Spanish can't remember what's it called at the W.

    Went to the loveliest lounges and bars. Delano pool at night was great, we had this huge white sofa-bed type of thing to ourselves even though we did not book, just walked down there from the restaurant and stayed there all night, by the pool, having champagne and fun. Great night, great atmosphere and great crowd.
    We also loved the Rose bar at Delano and our bartender was so friendly and such fun and kept serving us delicious and very strong cocktails and then one night showed us into a club/lounge at Delano and got us a table to sit at (even though we didn't order any bottles and usually tables are for bottle service only as I understood). The club/lounge was a slightly strange place (you have to go down the stairs so it's a bit underground) and it had this big plastic looking piano?! - not sure if it's a working piano or there for decoration purpose only.
    Anyway, the club with piano was great, packed with people but a nice crowd and good music, we danced until 3 AM and left exhausted but happy, just in time to have a dip in the pool and outdoor jacuzzi at our hotel (we stayed almost next door, at the Shore Club). I must say the water in the pool is soooo nice and warm at night, and it's just a great feeling swimming under the stars, surrounded by palm trees.

    All in all, fantastic stay! Yes, next time before I travel I may go on a diet for a week or two, just to be able to fit into more open and sexy outfits without having to worry about anything, but honestly, I should not have worried myself so much about sizes etc this time. We had great time, people were lovely, drinks strong, ocean warm and blue, and all doors were open for us - with or without reservation. May be it was because we looked relaxed and ready to spend (which probably helps), or may be it was because we smiled and chatted to people and had good attitude which was reciprocated (big time !) by the locals.

    Thank you very much for all messages of support I received on this site.
    Thank you - the club promoters (shame we didn't manage to go to your offerings but really we didn't have enough time for everything), - the bartenders, the cooks, the hoteliers, the security guards, the waiters (you have made our eating out "games and fun"), to the very handsome Russian waiter at the Shore Club who has eyes sparkly and fair enough to absolutely and unreservedly fall in love with!

    We'll be back for more!!!
