Dating a greek men
There is passion for the feminine, but no real love for the female, admiration for the lady, but contempt for the woman.An educated woman is doomed in the face of a sweet ignorant one, the experienced one scores far fewer points than the innocent. If you are determined to get involved with a Greek man, there are several rules you should follow.If you expect that handsome Greek husband to be be faithful, think again.While extramarital affairs can be a potential problem anywhere, in Greece it is the status quo for the male partners.You will quickly realize that even if your husband thinks he loves you, it is really just taken for granted by him and his entire kin that you are one of his appendages.There is a reason for the Greek tradition of stomping on your husbands feet during the wedding ceremony: success in this venture is said to guarantee a wife the upper hand throughout her marriage.Still driven by beliefs of the 19 century, most Greek men take for granted that they have far greater sexual needs than women, thereby excusing their extra-curricular activities.
The average Greek man may be looking for a companion, but he is certainly not looking for an equal partner.
The problem is, she tends to dominate throughout the duration of her sons marriage as well!
Third, your man of choice should be educated in a foreign country or well-traveled, preferably both.
How shocked I was when a 35-year-old acquaintance whom Ill call Akis informed me that he really doesnt think women are as mentally capable as men. A conversation with a lawyer friend of mine left me even more disappointed.
As proof he offered, "There are so many more published male authors than female." My explanation that the discrepancy is owed to the fact that women have only been allowed to publish books relatively recently in comparison with men was petulantly answered with, "Well, no female writer has ever sparked my interest." I wonder if hes read any? This young man whom I believed to be open-minded, with great depth and intelligence, casually explained that for a Greek man there are two kinds of women: the ones that bring out great passion and with whom every man desires a tumultuous love affair, "and the ones that you marry." I twinged inside as I looked at this truly beautiful man, so capable, so full of potential, caught within the vice of the madonna-whore complex. He had his tumultuous affair with an incredibly beautiful and vibrant woman throughout his years at university.
