Relationships, Marriage, & Family Life in Bolivia Dating, marriage, and family life in Bolivia vary significantly.Among some people marriage and family are closely linked to the Catholic Church as it is a highly religious ceremony, dating prior to marriage is kept at a minimum, and pre-marital sex is considered inappropriate.Discounting some of the more bitter responses - “weird and psychotic” or “hard work and volatile” we have put together a list of nine things which might help you understand the Austrian psyche before you embark on a date.
Here's a list of nine things to know before dating an Austrian.
Reserved and conservative This is maybe why so many of you have told us that it’s hard to meet an Austrian in the first place.
One French reader, Valerie, says Austrian men don't know the first thing about seduction, and she misses flirtation and men making eye contact with her on the street. Shy and not that good at flirting Katia Farias, a Brazilian journalist and blogger who lives in Vienna and has been married to an Austrian for five years says he is “funny, loyal, and kind” but warns that it may take some perseverance to snag your Austrian man as they are hopeless at flirting and tend to give off an “I’m not interested” signal.
More than just a party, this celebration also signifies the end of the courtship and the introduction of the young couple as adult members of the community.
If they have not already, most couples will move into their own house at this time.
Possible commitment phobe At least that is what some of you have said, including Indian expat Dhruti, despite that fact that she is engaged to an Austrian. We first heard about them from one of our readers, who we fear may have experienced a bad break-up recently: “They're attractive, smart and funny… Yesterday they loved you, the next day they’re not interested, soon they’re pretending they can’t remember your name and then they’re cheating on you.
