Ik ben een waalse meid en zou graag vlaamingen beter kennen...en misschien de taalgrens overtreffen ;)
Ook de taal wil ik beter kennen.

ik ben vlaming, woon in antwerpen, maar heb mijn kindertijd en jeugd in en vlakbij brussel doorgebracht. je berichtje vond ik wel leuk, ik ben namelijk ook veel meer een belgicist dan een flamingant, ook al woon ik in de scheldestad, waar de burgemeester nu een lid van de nva is.
waar in brussel woon jij, joanne, of woon je buiten de hoofdstad?

Dag Joanne,

Ik zelf ben geen Vlaming (maar ook geinteresseerd in vlamingen mensen en taal) maar mijn vriend is. Hij is heel sociaal en heeft interesse interessante mensen te ontmoeten en vindt waalse mensen leuk :-) Ik ken alleen maar een paar waalse mensen maar ik heb interesse om meer te kennen!

Hij is niet actief in couchsurfing momenteel, maar hij heeft facebook (Kurt Lammens). Als je wilt kan ik hun emailadres geven of jouw mail naar hem geven. Wij wonen niet ver van Leuven, als je wilt surfen rond hier, je bent altijd welkom!

Ik zou me niet te fel fixeren op Vlaams, Flamingant, Belgicist... Op de duur is alles extreem. Is één derde van de Vlamingen als ze voor de NVA stemmen, flamingant, separatist. . De vlag van Vlaanderen, kan helemaal al niet meer, extreem rechts, separatistisch...

De politiek en vooral de media spelen hier een vuile rol in.

Verder vind ik Walen boven alles veel opener, warmhartiger dan Vlamingen, ik kom heel graag in Walonië.

Ik wil altijd nieuwe mensen leren kennen, zelfs Walen :)

Ok Hetram,

I understand you. English is the most open language to everybody.

But if a belgian french speaking girl, want's to make friends with belgian flemish speaking people, schould she do it in English then? If she wan't to be kind and write in Dutch, to especially flemish people that should be fine. There schould be no problem in Couchsurfing about that.

About the discussion in Belgium, yes it is delicate. I just tried to say something about it in a good way. Only to think about it. Politics, and above all Media, play a dirty role with the opinion of people.

Thanks to everybody for their answers. It was a pleasure for me to read you!

First, of course it's better to speak in English if the message is addressed to everyone (or at least could have some interest for everyone) but here it wasn't the case and if a russian is looking for some chinese people to speak with... I don't ever want to loose my time to read such a message! I'm not that curious neither.

Anyway, just a question of point of view I guess.

Secondly, how did you want me (a french speaking belgian) to search for some dutch if I had to avoid the political issues? This is the reality that we cannot deny. If there would be on couchsurfing some stupid people who could start a controversy on the subject, I wish that they'd be blamed and not me(my goal was just at the opposit side). Anyway no ones did and it's anticipation for nothing...

I thought the Couchsurfers were more open minded, in french, we call that "rabat-joie".

Best way to dicaver a people is to go to where they live. So i would say: arrange surfing in Flanders a few times, and select flemish people (whatever that may be) Or go to a few meetings in Flanders, of course it's not all Flemish people, but you can make contacts, and see interactions. Also, to discover something, it's better to not say what you're looking for.

Thanks Geert, you're right ;)
