Where are the Eastern Europeans? ( Social Group on EF )

Hi all,

I am wondering if there would be a demand to establish an "Eastern European Community" on EF...

During the past years I have been living in different Western European countries (UK, Germany and now Switzerland) and according to my experience it's really easy to connect, make friendships with Eastern European fellows. We have a similar value system - which can be quite different from the Western one - and we have similar background.

What do you think? Have you ever made thoughts about it?

I am very interested in your point of view.

Cheers,
Vixy

I don't know there isn't one. I have met as many eastern europeans on here, as I have Brits, probably more. As it is the English Forum, it is so mostly by the language. Not by passports.

Do like anyone else does on here. Organize a meetup for drinks, cooking, restaurant, etc and see who comes.

I think we hear that different culture and values by the kind of posts people make, less on the analogy on the origins of the poster first.

But feel free, it's a "free"-ish forum.

Are you sure you want to live in a German speaking area and be known as Vixy (as in Wichsi)? Look up wichsen in a dictionary.

Good look for the rest of your project.

Hi dear Eastern Europeans,

We could start with an introduction round.

I am Viktoria, living in Basel since October this year. I am 26 years old and I come from Hungary.

I would like to get to know other Eastern Europeans, organize a community meeting, etc.

Tell me about yourself!

Cheers,
Vixy
