House and family are very important things for Austrian people and if you were invited to the house by your Austrian girlfriend, you have to appreciate that, because it means you are important for your Austrian lady.
Take a bottle of good wine for a present and in appropriate moment make her a compliment how good housewife he is.
If you are a foreigner, then explore the Austrian tradition of behavior, in order not to shock the Austrian lady and spoil the date.
It is considered impolite and rude to stare intently at a womans eyes.
As a good present you may use chocolate, wine or parfumes.
If you have just met Austrian girland having the first date, be sure that topics for discussion are neutral.
Although, Austrian women are well socially integrated, they are attached to their house and family relations.
It is highly possible your Austrian lady is a great housewife and tahes care not only about the house, but about the garden near the house as well.
Red carnations are better not to present either as they could have conotation of political party.
If you were invited to the house of possible Austrian girlfriend, unwrap the present in advance.
If you want to behave properly on Austrian first date with Austrian woman and want this date not to be the last one, you have to ask your close Austrian friend about norms and rules of behaviour or find information on our website.
You must know, that it is not ok to hold the door for Austrian woman and pass the door after her.
I am not saying they are using a lot of make up or something.
