There are many legends about being in a relationship with an Aussie bloke. The global idea of the Aussie male seems to be Chris Hemsworth catching waves on his surfboard before meeting his mates wearing thongs and spending the arvo at the footy. Is it true? Let’s find out.
Aussie men are unromantic.
In most cases, true. They might make a grand gesture now and then, but you’re likely to have to wait for something as big as a marriage proposal on the beach. If your birthday or anniversary isn’t on social media, they’ll probably forget it and wonder why you give a damn that they did. If an Aussie man teases you or makes fun of you, he is showing affection. Accept it with grace.
Aussie men are the world’s best lovers.
True. It’s official. Well…according to one study, it’s official.
Sport comes first.
Actually, mates come first. Sport comes second. But it will really help your relationship if you develop, or can fake, an ardent passion for NRL or AFL (winter obsession) and cricket (summer obsession). You might sneak in above other sports in an Aussie man’s priorities – maybe.
Mates come first.
Yes, mates come first. Do not ever try to come between a man and his best mates. You won’t win.
Aussie men only ever wear thongs.
First, this requires clarification. Australian thongs are not underwear. They’re flip-flops or rubber sandals. And no, Aussie men don’t always ware thongs. They also wear trainers. Thongs aren’t allowed in clubs. Secretly, your Aussie man would rather wear R.M Williams. They’re cool, but they’re also AU$600. Thongs cost about AU$20.
Aussie men have a sexy accent.
This legend must be a joke. The Aussie accent is horrible.
Aussie men are laid-back.
Aussie men don’t show difficult emotions. They’re pushed so far back, Aussie men don’t even know they exist. They laugh – when they’re with their mates and their teasing one another relentlessly. They cheer – when their team wins. They get angry – when their team loses. Otherwise, they’re pretty chill.
Aussie men are honest.
Like all men, they can be absolute bastards in a relationship. They’re not immune to cheating and if they know you don’t want them to see their mates, they’ll lie about it. But they do tell it like it is. All Aussies tend to tell it like it is. If you really want to know if your bum looks fat in those jeans, ask an Aussie bloke.
Relationship coach and TikTok star, Jake Maddock is a typical Aussie bloke who tells it like it is. He is also a relationship coach. If you really want to know what’s going wrong in your relationship, ask him. Here are some examples of his advice:
- How do you get over her past? Don’t know about it. Don’t ask about it, don’t tell people about it.
- Don’t bring aggression and disrespect to a disagreement. There’s no place for these in a relationship.
- Top red flags in a man to look out for? When he’s not in his masculine energy – when he’s not good a leader, won’t take any responsibility; when he’s not ambitious, he wants to sit around playing video games all day; when he isn’t protective, is a coward and when he’s not decisive, he can’t make a decision.
- How to be a great girlfriend. Show you feminine energy traits, be nurturing, caring, supportive and joyous.
- The number one rule in a relationship is, “My lover comes first. If you’re in love you put your feelings and needs before your own.”
