Reading body language in dating tilt head

I often call my sister on the phone and say: "Ela (Hi) malaka!

I saw one simple statistic that blew that one out of the water…

In 1963 the population of the WORLD was 3,201,178,277 Today?

It’s over 7 BILLION (and it’s headed for 10 Billion by 2050)… So, ask yourself, if women don’t like sex, how the heck did the population of the world DOUBLE in just 50 years?

Why did “50 Shades Of Grey” soak the panties of hundreds of millions of women around the world?

She smiled at me in a way that sent an electric tingle right to my crotch… Her hands were and with no hint at all of the pornography she’d inspired in my mind. The roided-up muscle-head in the shredded tank-top flexing his pecs like he couldn’t wait to prove his “masculinity” and kick my ass… Not even at our PC society that treats men like dogs just for being guys… who settle for Metrosexual shadows of masculinity - while us REAL guys get treated like dogs… I could learn to guys who thinks “respecting” women means treating women like they “hate” sex…

Suddenly her eyes flashed to mine like a deer in the woods… I watched her incredible breasts rise and fall like waves I wanted to surf on as she took a long, deep breath of her own… The fat security guard fingering his radio like it was Dirty Harry’s revolver and reporting an “assault” for who-knows-who to hear… Laying there, I realized something shocking and terrible and wonderful too… who thinks his totally natural masculine urges are disgusting and wrong… All over the internet I found books and articles and videos from sleazy pickup-artist type guys saying they’d figured out how to trick drunk girls into screwing them…

Direct translations of our language always make me laugh, and by literally saying "your eyes fourteen", our elders are pre-warning us to be careful.

Our parents' and grandparents' favourite phrase to say to the offspring when they're going on a night out, going on holiday, going for a walk, going on a date, crossing the road, ANYTHING.

You could be 72, 43 or 21 and you will always be called, the child. The amount of times I've wound my Gran up by telling her that the Greeks didn't create the English language, or Western civilisation or that the Olympics were invented by another country. *in a heavy Greek accent but spoken in English; 'THEE GRIKS CREATED EVERYYYTHING! Oh and before you say anything about the current economic state of Greece, well don't say anything, because if we didn't create the English language you wouldn't be able to say it! (aunt and uncle) There are two types of people in this World. We don't do passion by half measures, and especially not in feeling and expressing the love for our music. Families, especially meddling mothers and granny's try and set up the girls with 'a nice nn Greek boi' since the beginning of womb time! We believe that if someone is envious (in a good or bad way) of you, the evil eye will be cast by him/her, onto you.

My Yiayia still calls my youngest uncle 'to paidi' and I am still referred to as 'the paidi' or 'the mikri' (the little girl) in my family. As a matter of fact, there will always be at least a few Marias in every Greek family. and probably some spinach thrown in; and a stem of a plant they came across and ripped out the ground to plant in their garden at home. Including civilisation, the English language and the Olympics. Greeks living in Greece love Greece so much that they even want to holiday in Greece. Okay, twenty-five is a little excessive but no seriously, we come as tribes. Our Great Grandparents and Grandparents didn't have i Phones, or i Pads or even TV's back then so you know… We have many relatives who aren't actually relatives but everyone is 'Thia' and 'Thio'. We feel every single word with passion, with an ache. Greek songs are almost always about undying passion, or passionate pain, or passionate love. We believe in the power of the evil eye categorically.

Nothing says passion like the hand gestures of a Greek person. Did you know you could have a whole conversation with another Greek, just by using your facial expressions?

People had filled the streets by foot and by car, shouting, singing, hooting, waving flags, acting like we had actually won the cup! It normally means our Yiayia (Grandma's) husband has died and she has never worn colour again out of respect for him.
