To chime in as an Italian woman—yes, Italian dudes are more "touchy-feely." Italian culture is touchy-feely. We kiss each other and hug a lot and have different ideas about personal space.

That said: Does this mean we like being catcalled on the street and/or grabbed, as too many Italian men are wont to do? NO WE DO NOT. Fucking cut it out, Italian dudes.

This is why I'm marrying an Irish guy.
