Making Friends in USA vs AUSTRIA? ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น

Is Austria really a tough country to make friends? I ask an American-Austrian couple about the difference in making friends in the US vs Austria.

    I wouldn’t like being around people that want to have a conversation with me in a train. It would feel very intrusive. (I’m not Austrian.) I understand it’s a cultural difference of course but then it makes it weird to judge that a place is not friendly because of a cultural difference.

      You would feel intrusive. Here s come your ability of body language. What if that person that approach you is Mozart or Goethe ? Or what if that person is a serial killer? You know how to read people’s intention and minds?

    I think the concept of the meaning โ€œfriendsโ€ is different for example in Austria or the Netherlands than in USA. I was studying in France with also American students. The people that we hangout with for a couple of month we call a good acquaintance, but the guys from USA were calling them friends. So I think thatโ€™s the thing with making โ€œfriendsโ€. You can not make โ€œfriendsโ€. You became friends with some people after many years. I also noticed that people from USA have a lot of smal talk with kind of shallow conversations. Sorry guys but if we hear that kind of approach, we see it as a wast of time. Expats are people that wil come and go, like passengers. Most of us have a very busy life here and we would like to spend our free time with people that going to be in our life for a long timeโ€ฆ and not with the passengers that need to be entertained by so called short time โ€œfriendsโ€ from the country where they temporary work.
