Dating a dutch
You have your apartment, job and local Albert Heijn within 500 metres of your place sorted.
You have started to make friends and you have definitely started to notice how beautiful the Dutch are – tall, blonde, graceful Europeans gliding around on bikes all day. Same goes if you are wanting to date a Dutch man – don’t think he isn’t necessarily interested if he doesn’t come and talk to you.
What is it that makes the Dutch different from other guys?
What are the tell-tale signs that you are indeed dating a Dutchman?
However, there are some unspoken rules when it comes to dating the Dutch and I am going to help you navigate the sometimes-treacherous waters. A lot of Dutch women claim Dutch men are not forth-coming enough (yes, I was surprised to hear this too) and that often, they won’t approach them in a bar or at a party. Sure, that is a universal life tip: practice honesty.
The Dutch aren’t known for being overdressed, in fact they dress more low key, elegantly simple, and smart. When it’s raining half the time and you have to bike everywhere, who wants to constantly be wearing a pair of heels and a short, tight dress and oodles of makeup. But it really comes into play here when dating the Dutch.
Being straight up and to the point is the way to go.
This is part of the Dutch culture and if you want to be in a relationship with a Dutch person you better learn to accept it!
So, you’ve come to the Netherlands, fell in love with some ridiculously tall, yet handsome, Dutch guy.
Travel is a much-loved subject to chat about, so when you are on a date with a Dutchie, bring this subject up, it is usually a crowd pleaser.
With the Netherlands being one of the most socially progressive country’s in the world, expect the Dutch to also be the least ‘sexist’ of cultures.
