Dating denmark man

Swedes and Danes have a lot in common, but there are still some differences. That’s not what I consider to be the point of holding doors (it’s a sweet gesture, nothing more, nothing less), but the Danes decided there would be equality everywhere. Just as with the housework, you share the responsibility.

Read on to find out what it’s like dating the Danes. Don’t expect to be a stay at home mom, rather expect that the man will do half the work.

From the look on his face you’d think I’d said: “I love you”. Until then you should feel free to act as openly as you like: flirt as much as you like even if you have no intention of following through, spend long-drawn out periods of time together sharing your most intimate secrets, introduce them to your parents, and bring them back cute trinkets whenever you travel.

The line between friendship and dating here is horribly messed up.

Having grown up in Sweden I spent many summer sailing in Denmark, so I have spent plenty of time mingling with the Danes. In Denmark there is a very strong sense of equality between men and women. So don’t expect the guy to walk up to you on a party and buy you a drink. There’s a sense of fairness – you do your bit around the house, they do theirs.

In my teens the bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden arrived, so suddenly our neighbors were even closer and today a lot of people commute between Malmö and Copenhagen on a daily basis. For some reason women at some point decided that if a man holds the door for her, it may be seen as if she can’t do it herself. See dating as a half way approach – you have to meet half way, with everything. Of course, this is an individual thing (as are most things discussed in this article – you can’t tell what it’s like dating an entire nation, you have to generalize) but as a general rule, Danish dads spend time with their kids.

While much of the time I would like to hand out red cards to Danish men – I can’t – although I can try to twist the game in my favour.He was fun, cute, and knew that a ‘kiwi’ was not just a person but a large brown bird. Granted I didn’t use the ‘date’ word but I thought it was obvious – any situation past 8pm at night that involves a man and a women getting together with the intention of having a good time is a date. I knew perfectly well we weren’t a couple, but I definitely thought we were on the way to something.So after much frustration one night when my flirting techniques were really getting me NOWHERE, I said the three forbidden words in the Danish Dating Dictionary: “I like you”. You see, the Danish rules state that unless explicitly stated no man or woman is your date/love interest/boyfriend/girlfriend/partner until explicitly stated.
