To be fair to my roots, times have moved on from the likes of Stavros and we are now in the period of Kostas Martakis. When you are dizzy or have a headache and yawn a lot, we believe that you are 'matiasmeni' (the evil eye has been cast upon you).
*currently just listening to Remos and doing strofes. Even if Stavro over there has a natural coat of back hair, sideburns which touch his shoulders and breath like a dried tongue stuck on a cactus in Nevada, if he is Greek, he is a nice Greek boy. If someone is jealous, doesn't like you or even likes you, they can cast the evil eye.
That can be really hard, and especially when you're looking for a specific type of person.
Every Greek person has that one family member, normally a Yiayia, who travels back from wherever they've been with a suitcase filled to the point of explosion with spices.
It's easier to find matches and you'll have a lot more potential mates because there are thousands of profiles that you can search.
Greece is a diverse culture with a population that is spread throughout the globe.
Direct translations of our language always make me laugh, and by literally saying "your eyes fourteen", our elders are pre-warning us to be careful.
Our parents' and grandparents' favourite phrase to say to the offspring when they're going on a night out, going on holiday, going for a walk, going on a date, crossing the road, ANYTHING.
