I live in London and i don't find English men willing to commit at all. Not more than Italian men. Almost all my Italian friends are engaged with the same partner since they were teenagers!!!!I am from London (originally from Horn Of Africa), I was always attracted to Italian men and we from Horn of Africa love every thing about Italy. The only problem, however, is we as Africanz aim for marriage and in most cases -as far as I know at least- they tend to marry when they bit older 30-35+. I had an amazing, absolutely attractive Italian (Venice) boy friend he was not as gorgeous as I am, of course-. We broke up because he wanted every thing rather than marriage. I am not saying he didn't respect me, indeed he did, he thought he was too young 4 marriage (28years).
Its bit hard to understand the fact that we all are Londoners, but when we -Africans- look for man, we r actually looking for the one that we shall be with (For Ever). English men seems to fancy us and they more welling to commit, but although we like them, we rather Italians (I just don't know why??).
In Italy the family is a "must" that's the reason why i consider italians more similar to north-Africans than north-Europeans.
Anyway i think that if you live in London it's very hard to carry an African life style on.
So the only way it's to adapt yourself to the British lifestyle.
Even white anglo-saxon women want to be married, they are just not too obsessed.
P.S. i had a girlfriend from Nairobi (Kenya) and she definitely wasn't interested in marriage!!!
