This undoubtedly stems from the very defined gender roles in Serbian culture, which are also particularly noticeable when it comes to the dating dress code.
Here, it seems you are either a masculine man or a feminine woman. Men tend to have a rugged edge and would never be seen wearing skinny jeans, while women don't hold back on anything, their appearances meticulously put together with hair done, nails painted and makeup perfectly applied.
One other trait of Serbian courtship that has surprised me is the importance of the zodiac. Recently I was on a date where the person asked me, with great seriousness, what my star sign is.
When I told him Sagittarius, he smirked and said "the same as my dad." There was no elaboration, and I still have no idea about its relevance, but apparently it's a big deal. I had been forewarned by a colleague about this phenomenon of 'the astrology question', but had assumed it was an exaggeration.
People also use Tagged, Netlog and also their social dating Twoo increases in popularity, and because there are many FB users comparing to the total Internet users basically 80% of Internet users have FB accounts) they also use FB for meeting new people.

They also have an uncanny ability to wear six-inch heels in all weather and on all surfaces - including the cobbled Skadarska Street.
For myself, who does not even own a pair of high heels, this is a feat I am sure I will never master.
