Employed full-time under legal obligation and responsible for a family, this was their grandmothers’ and mothers’ task under socialism while feminism was a lark for bored, middle-class American housewives. Ferber, professor of women’s studies at the University of Illinois writes in her essay “Women in the Czech Republic: Feminism Czech Style” that today’s Czech woman has inherited a “striking mixture of strong family values with a firm attachment to the labor market, a sense of personal efficiency, and considerable independence.” She’s homemaker, breadwinner, and proud of it.
All “isms” aside, Czech women still have something I don’t and, frankly, it can be intimidating.
With their no-nonsense approach to matters both personal and business-related, Czech women may just be onto something. I laughed about it with her, but her revelation secretly hurt my feelings. Women of all nations, by virtue of the fact that we are women, face adversity, however minor, on a regular basis.
In time, I’ve come to realize that we Western women occasionally tend to chatter, bluster, and blather to our own detriment — doesn’t talking less and riding out awkward silences allow us to better hear ourselves? And yet most of the Czech women I know seem to have inherited a certain fortitude wrought of historical struggle — a National Revival, two worlds wars, 40 years of communism — that while mistaken for haughtiness, truly sets them apart.
Perhaps it’s the trait I hope will rub off on me most.
In lieu of an immediate vacation trip to Central Europe I recommend to chat with Slovakian girls is to go on a Slovakian mail server.
You can use online dating of course, but try a Slovakian mail server, you will get locals trying to find the guy next door. At first this might be hard because of the language, but you can use a translate tool or simply learn a little of the Slovakian language.
These are Slovakian mail servers where you can sign up and chat with Slovaks for free.
The Tatras jut high with snow whirling around mountain peaks and green mountain meadows and wild flowers in between.
There are an infinite number of hiking trails and mountain pines with wooden cottages that look like from a fairy-tale here and there. Yet the problem with finding a Slovakian single is there are so few of them.
