I am a guy who moved here to Brussels a little over a year ago for work reasons. I have a question regarding social etiquette in Belgium. Here is the situation. I've become friends with a young lady at work. She has a boyfriend, but lately I get the feeling things are not going so well with him. This young lady has been a great friend when I moved here. She has helped me with translations,finding an appartment and various other practical tasks helping me to get settled in. I would like to thank her back and be her friend in this difficult time she is facing. I recently learnt that her boyfriend will soon go on a travel for business for 1 week and I am thinking of asking her if she would like to go to see an exhibition at a museum with me. I am thinking she could need a distraction and a friendly ear to get her through her tough times. She is very beautiful, funny and kind and I think her boyfriend needs to treat her with the respect she deserves and she should be with a man who knows how to appreciate her properly. What I am thinking of is writing her a poem telling how beautiful she is on the inside and outside and that any man would treasure her, so her boyfriend better treat her right or somebody else will be more than happy to step in. I am thinking this might cheer her up, however, I am worried she might misunderstand the situation, so maybe I should not write a poem to bring along? - Or perhaps I can send some flowers to her address with it attached instead?
I will be grateful for all opinions on this, whether from women or men. Thank you in advance for all responses and enjoy the summer
