    Not so much ordinary, but she passes and looks more like a Germanic woman than most Slavs including Poles, Bosniaks and Serbs do in my opinion.

    Only Shtokavian-speaking Croats have any connection to Serbs, but they are most Serb-haters among Croats (many Ustasha leaders, including Ante Pavelic, were from this group).

    It seems that I upset Feiichy with what I wrote, talking about Germanic-looking Croats that could lead to Ustashe connection. As a non-native "neutral" observer to the Balkans, it is important to know where the line is and not to cross it and read up on facts before engaging in the discussion.

    My impression is though that Croats are more Western-minded, but this is restricted to diaspora Croats. Those in Sweden are typically fully assimilated, unlike Serbs, Albanians and Bosniaks. I have known Albanians and Bosniaks who did not like Serbs and vice versa, but Croats have never been mentioned really because they are assimilated, I guess. Maybe online though, but most online wars on the Swedish forum Flashback that I have seen are a "Serb" attacking Bosniaks for bowing down to the Turks and being Muslims. He claims that he is a Bosniak who converted to Christianity, but they call him a liar. I also knew a strongly anti-Muslim man in real life who said that he was a Croat (the others too similarly accused him of lying).

    There is some complex in play for certain.

    Because it's very odd to hate somebody but trying to exeggerate similarities on the other hand. But it had to do with politics of Great Serbia, and Croats were standing as a hurdle to create such dream.
    Most Serbs still can't accept the fact Croatia is stand alone country and is here to stay. Well, time to face the reality.
    Romanians dont speak the same language and are not yugoslavs. It is like saying some eastern germans are closer to poles or slovaks then to southern or western germans because of a pca chart or fst distance. I dont think serbs dislike romanians are or are complexed to admitt the similarities. Never heard that before.

    What does fully assimilate mean? As far as I know diaspora croats are very ultra nationalist, they wave the croat flag and such. And they are not really assimilated maybe because they are white and catholic so they appear as such but they are not really. In austria some complain that turks wave their flag at their weddings and say they created little istanbul, croats and serbs do the same though but no one complains. I think you are not being honest.

    Yeah, but I think the similarities are exaggerated. People often treat them as the same ethnic group cause they speak the same language. But they're still closer to each other than to any other ethnicity (except maybe Bosniaks).

    She does but she even posted her serbian look alike. It is not like all croats look like her and all serbs exotic or something.

    That can be said about every ethnic group though or country. In italy the differences are bigger then between serbs and croats.

    Okay, what's your point? I already agreed they're similar. Or do you think they should be considered the same ethnic group?

    Yes I think they should be considered the same ethnic group. There are much more similar then austrians and northern germans to eatch other and those are always considered the same ethnic group. But anyways maybe they shouldnt I dont have a strong opinion but I consider them as such and also bosniaks to me it is a microcosmos you could do that to every nation in europe and even to regions within regions there are differences between northern serbs and eastern serbs too.
