I've always loved this approach: under-sell, over deliver.
This does not happen in American culture, where women rarely make fun of themselves.

American girls—in my experience—carry themselves elegantly; sometimes so much so that it feels rehearsed.
Recently, I went on two dates in New York within the space of a week, one with a Brit, the other with an American.
They weren't all obsessed with fame and fortune, were they?
Was American culture really as shallow as my friends had warned? She was a down-to-earth Midwesterner with ambitions in New York City theater.
Similarly, American girls are much more lavish in their approach to life; and this includes the restaurants and hotels they expect to be taken to.
Money and salary is brought up frequently, and name dropping is prevalent in a good portion of conversations, especially in Los Angeles where status is paramount.
Which brings me to American girlfriend number five, who was paralyzed by her hoards of self-help books.
Over-analyzing American family dynamics is still something that remains a bit of a mystery to me.
After all, as she put it, "dancers don't make a lot of money." I wasn't the guy that could spoon feed her, so it ended.
But surely not all American girls thought British men had an endless supply of money?
Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.
