Dating in greek culture
While in ancient times, the bride may have been held captive for a higher dowry, today it means she will be wined and dined by the groom's friends, according to the website Greek Weddings and Traditions.
I once ended up at a New Year’s Eve party (this was in Cape Town) where the Greeks burnt whiskey on the floor and danced in the New Year. I also take Greek Goddess dance classes from a friend of mine in Los Angeles when I am there – dancing is simply part of the culture, as is celebrating with friends. As a Swede I’m not too fussed about my cultural roots, but the Greek like it Greek. Their sense of dress, on the other hand, is what I would call interesting.Greece has a history of interesting courtship practices including arranged marriages and dowries.Today, Greek men and women are inventing new ways to connect using the Internet.Greeks, as a general rule, will care for their friends.My best friend’s ex is the cleanliest person you will ever meet. We often hung out there, even stayed there when he was away and he was always one to help cook, do the dishes, etc.
