Dating norway people online
Dating rules So to make it clear what I’m talking about: As far as I understand it, dating in so many non-Scandinavian countries may consist of a man asking a woman he doesn’t know very well to go out to dinner and/or a movie with him, his picking her up and dropping her off afterwards and his paying the bills and making the decisions, and the first date ends with a kiss at the most? If so, buckle up and see how we non-date in Scandinavia.
Dating rules – the Scandinavian version Dating, as mentioned above, is what we don’t do. I`ll make you a list of what we don’t do so you’re not confused: Edit: Someone pointed out that I hadn’t linked up to Scandinavia and the World. But it comes with a warning: If you start reading, you can`t stop.
But dating was like a foreign language to me – as it is when I watch American movies and television shows.
So I might have gotten the dating “rules” of your country (which might *not* be USA and therefore not part of those American movie rules) entirely wrong and am thus making a big thing out of nothing.
But I know from statistics that more people live together than are married – and that is counting all the old people who got married back when that was still something you did (in Norway it was illegal to live with someone without being married up until 1972 – imagine that! Dating a Scandinavian I’ve always been fascinated by American date movies because it’s like watching some weird rituals in some far-away country I don’t know very much about.
I’ve also lived in several non-Scandinavian countries for longer periods – USA, Greece, Germany and Italy, when I was young and single and thus in the dating segment.
Sometimes men even write that the girl should be the “type” that pees in a bush without complaining. Oh and she also has to be the type who can put on heels and look awesome and sexy to impress his friends, oh and also confident and sweet. Oh and by the way, I don’t speak Norwegian and I have no friends in this country. This doesn’t sound confident, or sexy or even a little attractive.
Optionally taking weektrips to some place in gokk with neither electricity nor hot water. It seems to me that all Norwegian girls have been raised to pee in the dark behind a hytte by -20 degrees with reindeers and polar bears watching, so I am sure it’s not a hard criteria to meet (for other foreign girls…maybe a bit different). I don’t have a cabin, don’t know how to ski, I had never entered a gym before moving to Norway because I am lazy, and I have (rectification: had) no pictures of me sitting on the top of a mountain, or rowing a boat in the Lofoten islands.Don’t put pictures of you sweating in spinning class (unclassy) but do put a picture of you rafting down a crazy river in Thailand, or cycling up some road in South of France with a beautiful view of the sea behind you (nice tan is a must have here). I don’t think it’s because people are boring, just that they don’t want to seem to eccentric or too confident. So you end up with having to read this kind of sentence so many times your eyes hurt: “I like to stay at home, but sometimes I go out with friends.Then, you need to be kind of the same as everybody else but a bit different. I also like going to cafes.” Oh wow, just like the rest of the 500.000 people living in this city.I quickly realised I would have to make some effort to build a social life outside of my workplace (and supermarket): my colleagues, however very nice, ran out of the office every day at 4pm to reach the barnehage on time, so there weren’t going to be beers and chats and come-over-for-dinner-tomorrow here.
So one tries out ways to meet people, like skiing classes, joining a band, or online dating.I quickly realised I would have to make some effort to build …
