Australian men do not show emotions
often. If they show too much physical emotion,
they are labeled as "unmanly." http://www.webofculture.com/worldsmart/gesture_asia.html#AUSTRALIA"
In Australia, if a man wants to
express feelings or friendship to a woman,
winking is not the way to do so. To wink at
a woman is considered inappropriate and improper (Axtell, 1985).
consider a "thumbs up" a rude gesture (Axtell, 1985).
