Dating a greek man
I don't believe this is a problem and his friends seem to genuinely like me. Oh no, he informs me that my behaviour is "generally bothersome and not necessary." Third issue. Whilst we have only been dating for a few months, a few issues have started to creep up and I am wanting opinions as to whether maybe I am overreacting or if this could possibly be a cultural thing? He called my university degree "useless." I am currently studying to work in welfare and whilst I do find academic life to be arduous, I am generally passionate about where my degree can lead me, especially in regards to being able to live/travel in places such as London.
He is coming back to university next semester and after suggesting I switch to a science degree he wanted to coordinate study schedules! When I drink I do tend to be a little more friendly, but not in the sense that I hit on everyone, more like I enjoy getting to know people and asking people questions. I'm sorry, he's insulting, patronising, rude and presumptuous. I am an Australian lady who happens to consider herself to be British, just to add some context to this scenario.
With a reputation for being notorious Lotharios, most treat women like fresh meat out of the boat; they appear starved of female companionship and a woman is like a beautiful siren calling them to their deaths.
Initially they will treat you like a goddess, but keeping their attention can be problematic; that first burst of wild untamed passion can soon slide into apathy and misogynistic expectations if you don’t keep them on their toes.
Greek men are notoriously close to their mothers, so creating strong ties with your potential mother-in-law is very important.
Always be kind and courteous to his family and never, ever complain about how often they turn up on your doorstep. KEEP YOUR OPINIONS TO YOURSELF: Greek men can be easily offended, so don’t ever try to make fun of them, especially on your first few dates.
Wooing a Greek man can take time and effort but if you are willing to go the distance, your rewards will be greater than King Midas’ stash of gold. COOK WELL: To most Greek men, a woman’s place is in the kitchen and if you can find the key to his stomach, you will have no problem unlocking the key to his heart.
