    Well….in the US we have a whole spectrum of intimacy. During WWII, when American GIs were meeting British girls, they would kiss them…or try to. Only, for British girls, kissing came right before sex. For American GIs, it came right after holding hands.

    You can see the problem.

    I’m coming to Yerevan in January and have some questions about your city that I can’t find online. Would hope to hear from you.
