The things you fall in love with become the things that, in excess, drive you crazy.Namely, these things in my own particular Greek man are:1. When things are good, the drama and enthusiasm he displays are infectious and enjoyable.
she never expects her son to lift a finger to help and merely tuts when he creates a mess where she has just cleaned.Your attention to detail will impress him and have him daydreaming about the day when you pick up his dirty clothes. Just remember that you will have to keep this up for the rest of your life.But it’s a small price to pay for the love of a Greek God.He will want to see your tender, loving side, so ensure that you make a fuss over him even if he has just the slightest of sniffles. BE A WOMAN: Despite all this modern talk about equality, Greek men tend to be very traditional and at the end of the day, the man is the head, the woman only the neck blah blah blah.Greeks want a woman who will tend to them, love them, look after their children, cook them nice meals and keep their bed warm.In the early wooing stages, try to combine sexy with smart but don’t go too over the top.When you get to the ‘going out’ phase, you may dress as provocatively as he likes, but if you go out alone or with girlfriends, you should don a nun’s outfit. LOVE THE FAMILY (and his car): They say that behind every great man, there is a great woman. And his father, brother, uncle, sister, cousin, nephew, god-son, best friend, and anyone else who has known him for longer than you.However, when things do not go well in his life, everything is exaggerated and he seems to have little ability to control his mood or see things logically. One thing I love about Greece is the strong family relationships but, in my humble opinion, Greek men never leave their mothers.The high drama of a Greek tragedy is released and things get thrown around and smashed, loved ones are on the receiving end of verbal abuse and it seems all the Gods are converging over his head to bring him misery. She is always their in the background and he knows that whatever he does she will look after him.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.I have a dear friend that is married to a Greek Man.I find her opinions very interesting so I decided to put them on this blog, here is her humble opinions:"It is not easy.When we are with her, if I am not picking up after him, tolerating his lack of consideration and generally making myself his dog's body then I am not being a good wife for him.
