Some people might wonder if he is gay, but he is not, (Serbia tends to be very anti-gay), he is actually just a metro sexual European.
He probably likes to watch soccer and basketball on TV, but likes to play tennis in real life. He will communicate bluntly, to the point of being rude and offensive but try not to take it personally, this is just the Serbian way.
With every meal, he must have bread, regardless of how many carbs are already present.
He will eat a lot of rich foods, but maintain a fit body. He will be accustomed to strong liquor shots, and will like to toast before, during, and after, a meal.
