The man paying for everything isn’t as cultural here.

She's pitched up in London, shacked up with an American girlfriend and seems to expect that a Sex and the City lifestyle – complete with a dishy British version of Mr Big – should quickly unfold. A relationship soon followed and, when it ended a year later, and another English man appeared and asked me out, I said "Yes" instead of "Sure", so that he clearly got the message.

London, like New York, is a huge metropolis where a lot of men playing the dating game suffer from the Big City Syndrome.
Until you are in – that is over his threshold, not just the passenger seat of his Jaguar – you are just another number. Be prepared to start caring about football (soccer) and potentially cricket or rugby as well. If he only cares about football, you are getting off easy. You will be going to a lot of pubs when you first start dating.
