But while his concern for his luxuriant mustache and natty suits may be something of a delightful exaggeration, the interest that Belgian men profess in their appearance is a positive thing.So if you are keen to impress your Belgian guy, don’t be under the impression that torn jeans and crumpled tees make for an attractive ‘casual’ look.*Belgian waffles, are actually called "BRUSSELS WAFFLES!"*The divorce rate is very low in Belgium*The rate of unmarried parents is very low, as of most partners stay married.*Sex is very liberal and talked about openly, with a large variety to choose from, and sex is shown on tv even in the afternoon!Thus unlike men from some cultures where sporting a two-day stubble and grubby nails is a masculine thing, men in Belgium are very particular about their grooming.
In this context the image of the most famous Belgian of detective fiction, Hercule Poirot comes to mind.This is not only so that you come off as well-informed but because unlike say Austria or Denmark, Belgium is not a homogenous country with one national identity.Each area of Belgium is likely to have its own particularities.Indeed neatness is a matter of national pride and here even well-off men can be seen washing the pavement or steps in front of their house or even sweeping the street.So in your social interactions with a Belgian guy, take care not to appear slovenly and careless in your habits or manners since these convey an impression of irresponsibility and are unattractive to Belgians.
