What to expect when dating a greek man
Looking back at me was not a man who physically resembled my father, uncle or any of the other African American men who have been role models in my life.
So how is it that a relationship between a black girl from the suburbs of Detroit and a Greek guy from an island in the Aegean is not riddled with cross-cultural confusion?
At least that's what my father-in-law tells me." Often, the non-native spouse (usually the wife) feels isolated and lonely and has a difficult time adjusting.
Six months ago a cute Greek guy, from my graduate program at NYU, asked me to have a drink after class. I said no because I didn't perceive that Marios was interested in me romantically.Carla From my experience, (duh, who else's experience would I be talking about) yes, it is different being greek and dating a man/woman who is greek as opposed to being a non-greek dating a greek.There are a lot of responsibilities that come with being greek that a non-greek may not understand or even like.It was a freezing cold January night; I'd had a long day at work followed by a three-hour lecture. I am embarrassed to admit this now, but the primary reason why I didn't understand that he was asking me on a date was that he is white and I am black.In hindsight, I have wondered about my admittedly close-minded behavior.
