Forgot to add that i went to a lecture once by this girl from Finland. She stated that they do not 'do' small talk ie weather being nice etc. Also that when they have nothing to say, they don't say anything.
Obviously this girl thought that actions spoke louder that words
Within 40 minute,s with a translator I met whilst I was in Italy, a couple of years ago. Got talking in a bar, 40 minutes later we were getting down to it next to some river or stream. She kept blithering on about the moonlight, too. Weird Europeans.
the only reason it took me 4 hours to get in to the young ladies knickers was that she was under the following orders, "don't shag him on the first night", as she had a rep as a good time girl...
and waited until just after midnight...and we're still together 3 years later
