Glimpses,photos & experiences of a foreigner living in Slovenia, Ljubljana

About Slovenian men

When you move to a new country to live, you can not stop noticing how humans interact not just with the nature but also with each other.  It was easy for me to see and understand the relation Slovenians have with nature ( and I think I captured that in  some blogs and photos )  but I can not say same thing once I start looking at interhuman relations.

Since I am a woman, I mostly interact with my “kind”, the same ” species”, other women, that led me to some Knowledge , on the Slovenian men, that might help us break the secrets of the Slovenian man.

First of all, we can not stop noticing that the Slovenian men can be considered quite rarities, on world view. The country itself has about 2 million inhabitants from which just about half are men.  Even so, if you are in Slovenia there would be big chances ,in case of Cupid hitting , that the other victim is Croatian or Serbian or Italian or from any of the countries around.

Are Slovenian man being galant, polite, when they first meet someone, interact with that person? I would say they are, even though some might consider them flirtatious, but when a man holds the door or gives his seat so a woman could sit instead, I still see just signs of being well raised and civilised. And the Slovenian men can play  their civilised role very well, especially compared with the other nations living in Slovenia, my opinion.

But all this well raised attitude had to come from somewhere, should be “the 7 years from home”, when they were teached by their mamas. And here, all my girlfriends agree, is the problem. Slovenian men can be really mama’s boys, some of them, some even all their lives. Maybe a bit like Italians? 🙂  Some Slovenian families seem like a matriarchy, the mama knows,does and decides all..

Do not lose your hope! 🙂 Slovenian men that aren’t tied to their mama’s skirts are having a very active lifestyle and lots of interests which my girlfriends admire. Even the men that live in Ljubljana and can not get out of it are having a favourite sport, it is called bar- hopping. It is done everyday and that’s why you wont meet a Slovenian man that didn’t had a beer or going to have one. Some say that might be the cause of a higher rate of natality, but my girlfriends have no complain at that department, as someone called the Slovenian men: good technicians.. which now reminds me, of some Slovenians I’ve meet, they were reading a book about sexual techniques with the same curiosity as reading the recipe for gold and eternal youth..:))

But I think I have given away plenty of secrets for just one blog and I will open a new chapter with more blogs to come , that it will be added to the left of the menu 😉
