do women from different countries act differentlyPage 5 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
It doesn't sound as though you've read some of these posts too carefully. Many of them actually agree with you for the most part.

So, when German guys expressed appreciation for the complete "me," I was surprised, and a bit suspicious at first, thinking I was being played.


To this day I haven't been able to get past the opposite thing. When someone's first comment to me is about looks, there's always this thought that that's just flattery and I'm being played, and I automatically assume that that's just another guy that wouldn't like me anyway, because all he wants is looks....... And I run

A friend of mine who worked for a while in Asia married an Asian lady. He believed that Asian women treated men well but he was soon disillusioned. Although she was working when he met her she never worked after they married because it was her husband's job to support her. He also had to support her family back in Asia as she was no longer working to support them. And, even though she wasn't working, she had to have a cleaner come in to do the basic housework because she didn't expect to have to do those sort of menial jobs. He believes she only married him for his money - she thought he was rich because he earned a lot more than people in Asia. So good luck to you all if you think you will do better with a foreign wife.


A typical story of an old fat expat marrying a young Asian bar girl lol....

Being Ukrainian, I had no idea I must be a submissive person who stay quiet and let man make ever decision.

POF thread has taught me something. :)

Tantra,

Your assertion is simply inaccurate. Women from different countries WILL act differently for no other reason than their life experiece has been different.

You have proven this fact through your own behavior on this thread. You were immediately offended by the remark made about the gypsy. Ok, why? Because the Roma have been badly judged and discriminated against. Naturally, this discrimination will, on average, effect their personality and also yours ( assuming, of course, that you grew up in an environment where you were personally effected by this discrimination.)

This truth exists all over the world if your observe the history of that country. I WOULD argue that eastern european women place a much stronger value in family, and family values. Western men have in many cases got it wrong. It isn't that this east european woman is easilly controlled, instead her values are simply more likely to encourage the development of family. Often, at first at least, this will appeal greatly to the man who needs to be in control.

I think that every person around the world is the same in their emotional, psychological, and intellectual capacity and make-up. However each culture WILL be different because the experience of each culture within any given country will vary.

sorry its of topic...but I just felt the need to ad a little basic information

in Europe there are two blood lines
Rom or Sinti
one is East and the other West Europe
there are a lot of people calling them Gypsy, because somewere in their blood line
they had an ancestor being Rom or Sinti
and there are the wandering tribes, nomads that like the way of living...

both don't have any thing to do with a Rom or a Sinti
there is a rule of living, behavior and the acceptance of the leaders
based on the fact that the Rom or Sinti can proof their father belongs to the clan...

their is the language...only passed on by mouth ...which is a dialect of Sanskrit

the accusing of stealing came up when it was just easy to blame a outsider which would not stay within the town and keep moving and therefor couldn't defend themselves...because of the fact there were no citizen right for Rom or Sinti...

nowadays since forced for so many decades (it was not allowed for a Rom or Sinti to learn a craftsmanship by the guest governments) to only relay on trade business or music
there is a definite need for education...and since East Europe is still behind in a lot of things...the need there is more ...I am sure it will be overcome

the believe for all clans is Christian and that's the reason for the emigration from India...

so back to the topic...would be a woman of this background different...yes...but also different within her own race depending on upbringing.... personality and personal experience...

to limit any persons quality to being more submissive or sweeter...will lead to not know the person at all...we have so many facet's to offer and it is this diversity that makes each one so very unique

I think the myth of certain women being more subservient and quiet in demeanor is probably encouraged by the business that deal with foreign brides. Since the men that frequent those websites are usually looking for that behavior - it's in the women's interest to present themselves that way. Subsequently it only enforces those ideas.

varinia, the only time I ever hear the words submissive or subservient, is from the mouths of feminist women. They use it as a put down to any women that doesn't try to steal a mans pants. I've dated foreign women and none of them have been submissive or subservient by any means. They had their own opinions but no agenda to establish dominance like American women. I can actually have a conversation with them instead of an argument. If I say black, an American women will say white just to be contrary. It's almost automatic, I'm not even sure they realize they do it because it's so bred into them to oppose men. I witness this behavior constantly. I'm working on my mailbox a few weeks back, and my neighbor across the street is pulling weeds out of her flower bed near the curb. The lady next door to her starts talking with her and she comments on how hot and humid it was. Ten minutes later her husband pulls in the driveway coming home from work, and he comments on how hot and humid it is. She says to him "You think it's hot?...I'm just fine, doesn't bother me"......so freakin typical.

I'd like to think so, I'd also like to think that non-Americans are more down to earth, accepting and easygoing too. But, until one lives over the big pond one never knows.

Not the radical I used to be...but one holdover from those days is that our economic system is mostly to blame. I swear some people most spend their whole day looking for people to piss off.

One of Tony Soprano's russian conquests said it best, can't remeber the exact quote but it was right on. Americans expect to get everything their way or something like that.

If you disrobe some women from some countries you may find them strapped with dinomite. So I would have to say YES there may be differences.

hmm...well, i suppose cultural differences could affect behavior...but once the woman has become acclimated to the U.S. culture, i imagine she'll eventually act just like the rest of us...for better or worse!

are you serious?

of corse women from different countries act differently, same with men from different countries

all humans adapt to their surroundings, different surroundings = different people, "the ground will always dictate"

everything is situational

Yes, women and men act differently. In countries where women are supressed and threated like second class citizens, the men seem to take things for granted and the women are timid. In poor economic areas such as the Ukrane and Russia areas have left many in poverty and women seek men from out of thier country for the sake of having a better life and family. I find the disposition of women from a culture as Ukrane very favorable, the values and attatude of family life where divorce is of neglegent issues since they dont have high divorce rates seem geared to stable home lives. Its really good to hear that women outside of our capitolistic society maintained values like that of our grandparents. I am inclined if things were different to visit that country.

Yes they do...
I've been to Vietnam to teach English for 9 months.
Vietnamese there and here are very different.
Women here tend to feel that they have something to prove.
This is just my own observations in their general attitudes.

There are many non-western countries where women take a more traditional, subservient role. Having met women from such countries myself, it sure is a big break from the feminists I've grown up with here at the states. Wow, she will stay home, cook, clean and rear the children? A breath of fresh air.

Yes. Even women who were raised in different areas of the country act differently. Even women who were raised in the same areas of the country, but moved to different towns act differently, although that's not quite as marked.

I know women from Manchester, and from London, and they act VERY differently. Women who are half Italian and half English, and VERY different from women whose parents are both English. Even women from New York are very different from women from El Paso.

It does help to pick women to date who come from places where you feel comfortable.
