Nepal dating culture
Nepalese are often smiling and are a friendly people. If there is a disagreement, talk it out in private with the person in a humble way to solve the problem.
Do not shout in public or call names, which would be considered extremely rude and may even damage your personal reputation among those who witness this kind of behaviour from you.
When you meet someone for the first time, it is important to say “Namaste” with both hands held together.
It is also important to speak modestly as a sign of respect for the person you are speaking with.
Each and every meeting in Nepal begins and ends with the traditional saying ‘Namaste’ with hands in prayer like gesture (palms together and fingers upright at chest level) and a slight head nod (translated, I salute the God in you).
When meeting those of higher rank, the term Namaskar may also be used; this is much more formal and reverent.
Nepalese are very community-driven people and so respect for one another is very important.Do not point a finger at someone, as it would be considered disrespectful. It is important to try to adhere to all the various etiquette rules so as not to appear rude.A few charming, though confusing communication styles include how to respond to yes/no.Most Nepalese women are good cooks, so if you ask them about any Nepalese recipe, they will be more than happy to share it with you. Topics to avoid in the beginning include politics, religion, gender and caste differences.Once people have warmed up to you, politics could be a good discussion topic.
