I just finished watching Fat Girl
(2001) [French: À ma soeur!], I'm currently reading A Certain Age
by Rebecca Ray and I previously read and watched An Education
. In every one of those films and/or books, an early teen (e.g. In A Certain Age
the girl is 14.) has a boyfriend that is at least in his late twenties. In each case, the mother doesn't seem to mind, the father is only a bit annoyed and the man is even allowed to come to the house for dinner.
Are these open age-gap relationships anomalies or are they common in Europe?

Where can I purchase more socks like these
? Acquired by my husband over 10 years ago at an airport in the Netherlands, they are long-lasting, comfortable, made of wool, have the word "TRAIL" embroidered in red across the instep, three horizontal red stripes on the ball of the foot, and what may be a size "3-46" in red across the toe.

I like my job, but I want to leave, badly. I want to leave the UK for warmer/more interesting climes. Where are good places to find a job in continental Europe, with a media/technical slant, for someone who only really only speaks English? [more inside]

Hey I'm travelling to Europe this summer and want to go from Berlin to Prague. I found a previous post on it but it's from 2005 and the info is a little outdated so i was wondering if anyone had a good suggestion for going about getting to prague? I'm travelling with my Girlfriend and we'll be going from Prague to Munich after our stay there. Does anyone know if we can use our Eurail passes in Germany (from say berlin to dresden then switch trains to prague) or book a roundtrip ticket that will take us into Prague and then on to Munich?
All help would be appreciated! Thanks

Looking for personal recommendations for Europe-based online shopping sites that ship to different European countries; especially, at the moment, looking for a place that sells cosmetics from different distributors. [more inside]

EuropeanFilmFilter: I would love some French/German/Central and East European film recommendations. I'm looking for movies like 'Red' and the 'Double Life of Veronique' by Kieslowski- visually stimulating, beautiful films that aren't necessarily really sweet feel good movies like Amelie. I'm looking for films that you walk away from feeling great because you've seen something beautiful, or they leave you trying to figure out the plot's allegorical meanings, or thinking about the universe, or whatever.

How do I find a European to marry? I am a well educated 35 year old woman. I want to move to Europe and become an EU citizen. The country doesn't matter.

There are a lot of American products you can't get in Europe and vice-versa. Does anyone know of any private, Internet-based mail-swap scheme, similar to CD swaps? [More inside.
