Libyan sex chat-1

Humour is always good; however, try to stay away from sexually explicit type of humour.

Humour about politics (especially if it involves Americans) is always well received, but do not tell a joke about the current political system in the country.

Distance when speaking to someone is about the same as in Canada.In the case in which you have a Libyan boss/manager, he will probably make a point of raising his voice once in a while to you.This does not especially means that he his unsatisfied with your performance or other aspect of your work, but rather he wants to send a message to the Libyan people in the offices next door; that message is “I am his boss” “I have the power”.Shaking hands is the mostly used and acceptable physical contact in Libya.Other contacts may be used in case of a close relationship.Eye contact, whether in a business meeting or in a casual encounter, is very important.
