Perhaps with time you will notice drastic differences how e.g.people greet each other (male-male hand shake, kisses in the cheeks people who know each other since long and etc.).I guess it takes a bit of efforts from us expats to break ice between our hosts. But I can assure you when you know them well and they feel confident with you... I've met a few in my travels, and they all appeared to be very friendly, respectful, mature, and a lot quieter than Australian girls.
If men don't approach women, then this can only be good news for men, as women would be more likely to approach a man.
For me, it took a very long to find out whether there was actually a heart inside.
Once the ice was broken, it was just like any other relationship.
Indeed, I did assume the fault was my own, until I realised I wasnâ€™t the only one to have experienced such blatant indifference to my feminine charms.
For, as it turns out, every girl I know in this city has suffered the same disinterest.
