Danish dating etiquette
The only other place outside of the Netherlands where I have experienced this kind of assistance from strangers has been on the train to Sarajevo.
Queens have held reign in the House of Orange for what seems like forever, well from 1890 to 2013 to be precise, so I find Dutch guys in some zany way quite respectful of womenfolk.
I was reading through a CNN travel report circa 2011 and wondering why the Dutch weren’t mentioned as one of the coolest nationalities in the world. Ditch the ill feelings towards the Dutch guy, who is rumoured to go Dutch (split the bill) when on a date.
Forget all those complaints and concerns you read in cyberspace about Dutch guys being uncool, unromantic and underdressed.
Here, even with 12-inch heels, I’m still quite average among dutch guys.
With a good portion of Dutch land below sea level, the Dutch have come up with innovative solutions to keep water out of their land for hundreds of years. The ‘let’s split this bill in half’ theory is designed to make girls steer clear of the Dutchies.
There are also May Day (Labour Day) and April Fools Day, where Danes tease each other with pranks and outlandish stories.
In recent years, Danes have also started to embrace both Valentine´s Day and Halloween.
A Dutch guy is likely to be a person of integrity, openly discussing issues and asking deeply personal questions.
They will offer their opinion whether or not it is pleasing to you, and are direct almost to a fault.
