While many foreigners initially find dating in the Netherlands daunting or inaccessible, understanding Dutch personality traits and mentality can help reduce miscommunicating the ‘flirting’ signals as practised by Dutch women and Dutch men.
I think men need to realise that women are just as frustrated and scared by the whole dating process as they are and that even a simple ‘hello’ can make a world of difference. Us women have such a tough time trying to make sure we’re approachable but not a ‘floozy’, that we are mysterious, but not rude, and that we show enough interest so he knows we’re keen, but not too much that he assumes we’re desperate! So really, as long as it takes to make sure the clothes are looking good and the grooming ritual is complete! I like to keep my make-up quite natural, but if it’s a Saturday night and we are going somewhere fancy, I’ll do my hair.
Then I usually have some sort of outfit crisis and then finally, after I put on what I tried on first, I spend a few minutes doing last minute things like adding jewellery, spritzing perfume, applying moisturiser to my legs and looking for my keys and phone…

You know, those guys who you’ve been seeing for a couple of weeks and who then just vanish into thin air, never to be heard from again.
Beau: I think the best way to tell is in the conversation.
If it flows throughout and comes naturally, you know it’s been good for you both.
