Wooing a Greek man can take time and effort but if you are willing to go the distance, your rewards will be greater than King Midas’ stash of gold. COOK WELL: To most Greek men, a woman’s place is in the kitchen and if you can find the key to his stomach, you will have no problem unlocking the key to his heart.
Show your spontaneous side by surprising him with an extra helping of Moussaka, book a holiday to his mother-land, or simply turn up on his doorstep wrapped in nothing but the Greek flag. BE SUPPORTIVE: Though they may exude an air of great self-importance, Greek men aren’t always as confident as they pretend to be.
Try to encourage and motivate him even when his ideas could land him in a mental asylum and/or jail.
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.
This fuss may be created over their appearance, their health, their home, their food or their car.
While he may be allowed to throw his dirty underwear around (because mama will always pick it up), you should be the goddess of cleanliness. Wooing a Greek man by telling him that he is wiser than Zeus and more handsome than Hercules will have him begging you to go out with him.After she spent much of her childhood battling against the Greek stereotype that a woman’s place is in the kitchen, author Ekaterina Botziou* shares her wisdom on how to keep your Greek man happy in the following opinion piece.A Greek male is a complex creature full of contradictions, hyperboles and oxymorons.With a reputation for being notorious Lotharios, most treat women like fresh meat out of the boat; they appear starved of female companionship and a woman is like a beautiful siren calling them to their deaths.Initially they will treat you like a goddess, but keeping their attention can be problematic; that first burst of wild untamed passion can soon slide into apathy and misogynistic expectations if you don’t keep them on their toes.Of course there are individual differences, but I feel that the “Greek man syndrome” a mix of pride, dominating stubbornness, unfaithfulness and disrespect towards females, has something to do with the way boys are socialized in Greek culture.
