In Israel, if he has bought you a car and paid your tuition, but hasn’t taken you to a tsimmer and nobody in his social group knows you are officially in a relationship, he is just some dude you are shagging.
Oh, and about the shagging, if he is the only guy you are shagging, he must never know this.
I know it sounds horrible and cruel, but Israeli men don’t understand anything but horrible and cruel.
Actually it’s not horrible or cruel because these guys really do not want you to be nice to them.
Now, before you accuse me of being bitter, remember that I am a big fan of Star Trek. They need you to treat them like you hate them so that the few seconds a month you show them any actual affection/mercy, they feel they’ve earned something important. Women with options are insanely hostile and neglectful.
The more you love them, the more “cruelly” you should treat them.
You are not in a relationship until he has taken you to the romantic sort and made a formal announcement of your status.
By “not in a relationship”, I mean totally not in a relationship.
Until the late 1980s, it was generally believed—on the basis of evidence of the Clovis projectile points that had been found in New Mexico—that humans arrived in the Americas approximately 13,500 years ago.I should probably have known what was wrong with this place from the fact that people think Russians and Ukrainians are crazy.Indeed many of them cope with life here in ways that are very understandable, but sometimes very harmful or at least counterproductive. In this context, I would like to inform any civil women out there who are single and coming to this hell hole to turn back now unless they are willing to be callous enough to take the following advice… In the category of things I wish I knew 10 years ago, I have been informed that one is not actually in a relationship with an Israeli man until he has taken her to a romantic “tsimmer” and introduced you to his friends/family as his girlfriend.It’s just that here, because it’s a small country, any upset in the balance of Nature becomes a disaster very quickly. Somehow, the infrastructure hasn’t collapsed yet, but I am guessing this is only because there are enough Russians and others from former Soviet countries here who do have some idea of a civil society, and why it’s not a good idea to let the water and sewage system go too far into disrepair.What I am trying to say is that Israel is not just not a western society. Most of the problems from the government down to the treatment of workers are because there is no such thing here as a social contract, neither explicit nor implied. Were it not for them, I am pretty sure this would be an Arab country.
