Hello, I am an American guy and I am in a long distance relationship with a Czech girl. We met last summer in the States. We had an great time and decided to stay together after the summer was over. I am really crazy about her, but she's a very private person and sometimes it's impossible to figure her out. One thing I noticed is that it seems that she really need her space. When she's in a bad mood, she absolutely refuse to reveal herself. Basically, she ignore people when she's in that state. In fact, when you try to help or ask her what's wrong, she gets really angry. This makes it a bit difficult to work with...especially in a long-distance relationship. Basically, you can't tell what's going on and communication completely breaks down. One interesting thing she told me in the past is that she really dislike the way Americans talk about feelings. I can appreciate that sentiment because I wasn't born in America either, but keeping all the bad feelings inside, isn't that a little unhealthy? Okay, I can understand that you may not want to burden other people with your depressions or issues, but isn't that what a relationship is about? Being there for each other? Sharing the good moments and bad? I guess what I like to know is what Czech people think about this? Is this a cultural thing? Keeping your feelings to yourself? Or maybe it's just her? Or maybe it's the long-distance thing? If you have some insights or experience about this, I would love to hear from you. Thanks so much.
