: Are there any second generation Greeks living in the diaspora out there? How do you feel? Do you feel Greek? Do you feel Aussie/American/Canadian/German etc? Do you feel neither? Is it difficult for you to find people to have relationships with if you have been brought up looking for a "good Greek"? Do you feel that it's difficult enough living in multicultural countires to find a Greek let alone a good Greek! Do you feel compelled to marry "Greek"? Do you feel that you have no choice but to marry Greek? Do you feel that the expectations put on Greeks are demanding and quash dreams and aspirations? Am I just getting too cynical for a 25 y.o Greek girl living in Melbourne? Maybe!
Hi, cynical Greel girl, Iam not of Greek ethnicity, Iam Irish, english, Russian, and German ethnicity. Iam about 6th generation Australian. My sister is married to Maltese man. I do not and have never felt like I have 'fitted' in Anglo/Australian culture. I adore Greece and Greek woman, even though iam 'skip' , I choose to marry a Greek girl one day (soon) I respect all other cultures, and hope my Greek relatives accept me too! I live in Brisbane, and find it very hard to get Greek girls to even look at me, never mind marry me! So I suggest, stay focused on what you want and be happy!
Sorry to all those Greeks who hate us skips invading you space, I have sisters too.
