at the subject matter – all ethnicities are unique and beautiful in their own way! With that being said, Greek girls often make pretty great girlfriends for a multitude of reasons, including our love of dancing and celebrations, delicious food, and a rich cultural heritage, among other things.

Ever wanted to date a Greek girl?Well, there are many awesome reasons why you should! And if you yourself are anEllinida, how many of the qualities below do you agree with or see in yourself?

It doesnt matter if its at a nightclubor your best friends wedding – if there is music and a dance floor, Greeks will probably be one of the first to be up and dancing!

Whether your girl is the one cooking the mealor her mother (or even her dad making souvlaki on the BBQ), you can rest assured that stepping into a Greek household means youwillbe offered food, and itwillbe delicious. And then your mouthwillwater thinking about that meal for days afterward. Mmm, gyro pita.

No matter what kind of celebratory event it is,its a known fact that Greekslivefor huge, festive parties – we will drink, we will dance, we will sing, and then we will drink some more. Oh, and if youre a guest at a Greek wedding, just know that the Greeks wont rest until youre up and dancing (or at least, attempting) the Kalamatiano along with them.

Of course, this might not matter to you ifyoure just looking for a fling. However, if youre looking to wife up a Greek girl, you should know that we have an enormous amount of respect for our family, and even though we will disagree with and complain about them a lot of the time (which,trustme, we will), we know that at the end of the day nobody has your back more than family. Besides, if she has such a large amount of respect for her parents then you can almost guarantee shell show a similar amount of respect toward yours. Thats wifey material right there.

Granted, you might have to become pretty seriouswith her first (the traditional Greek parents will be nosy and all up in your business, after all), but if you ever get the chance to tag along with her to the homeland,ohhhh man. Just Google Santorini, Mykonos and Zakynthos for starters and imagine vacationing among breathtaking Greek islands with your Greek beauty!

People dont throw around the term Greek goddessfor nothing – Greek girls will generally always try to look their best. Bonus: if youre her man, she may even gift you that new blazer from the mall or give her input on a particular hairstyle, because she wants to helpyoulook your best, too. CoupleGoals, anyone?

Okay, yes, this might contribute to the fact thatwe can be overly dramatic and loud sometimes, but then again who wants to partner up with someone without any passion in life? Greek girls will voice their opinions, fiercely support what they believe in, as well as fight for the things and people they love, and who doesnt want someone like that as their right hand?

Whats more attractive than a bilingual chick?Stay with a Greek girl long enough and youll catch on to some fun phrases in a new language – and no, I dont just mean that one famous Greek curse word everyone loves to throw around when theyre on the Danforth (starts with M, hint hint). Plus, the Greek language has often been said to sound pretty sexy to the non-Greek ear… just saying. 😉

Lets face it, Greeks are known to be a pretty prideful people,and when it comes to our dating life, we are no different. If you date a Greek girl she will probably shower you with affection and want to proudly show you off as her man.

If you consider yourself somewhat of a conversationalist,then dating a Greek girl might be for you – maybe we get it from our ancestors, but Greeks tend to enjoy philosophizing (and, admittedly, our fair share of gossip). You might find that youll be able to talk to a Greek girl for hours about anything and everything. We make pretty good +1s to have on hand at dinner parties or social events as a result!

Its simply not proper Greek social etiquetteto show up at someones house or event without something to offer the host(s). Whether its a bottle of wine for dinner at your parents place or a small dish of her own to add to your friends summer BBQ party, a Greek girl would probably be embarrassed to show up empty-handed.

Dont take the Parent Test lightlyas its a pretty huge deal to both a Greek girl and her parents, but if you can get past this crucial step, then consider yourself accepted into the fold, as fiercely loved and protected as one of our own – and, like mentioned before, nothing is considered more important to Greeks than family.
