BESIDES APPEARANCE!!! For those of you who are either Czech women, foreigners dating or interested in Czech women or just general observers from their time travelling to and fro in the Czech Republic. I was curious because my friend Tanya (she's half-Ukrainian but grew up in the US from birth) said she was disappointed the people there weren't as friendly as in Italy. I'm wondering if this is a trait of all Eastern European countries...that they are more "shy" or "private" and don't walk around the world like they own it, as SOME Americans (I try not to!) tend to do. I've also heard that you can always spot an American tourist because they're smiling like idiots all the time. Some people have told me that it takes longer for Eastern European women to trust someone...in my travels in South America, you could join any group, party and feel like you've known the people for years, to feel welcome and comfortable. My friend Tanya didn't feel that way apparently. I also think Americans tend to be more open in their feelings, share their problems more easily...tend to think their problems are the only one that exist or the worst problems of anyone in the world. We're very dramatic and emotional, maybe it's the Oprah (a tv show popular among women) -ization of the US. So besides the very much FALSE stereotype that Eastern European women are more content to be led by their husbands, that they are more obedient, like to cook and clean and take care of children and NOT be independent or ambitious in terms of getting their own education or a job outside of the home (more stereotypes that are usually 100% wrong), what is it that appeals to foreigners about CZ women??? And, please don't go on about physical characteristics...that would be boring and repetitive.
