Namely, these things in my own particular Greek man are:1. When things are good, the drama and enthusiasm he displays are infectious and enjoyable.
However, when things do not go well in his life, everything is exaggerated and he seems to have little ability to control his mood or see things logically. One thing I love about Greece is the strong family relationships but, in my humble opinion, Greek men never leave their mothers.
In August 1974 Greek forces withdrew from the integrated military structure of NATO in protest against the Turkish occupation of northern Cyprus. In 1981, Greece joined the EC (now the EU) and became the 12th member of the Eurozone in 2001.
It successfully hosted the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
I don't know how far my own situation reflects other non-Greek women who have fallen in love and thrown in their lot with their Greek man.
