Dating in Nordic countries is different in some aspects from other parts of Europe. The culture has a rich heritage dating back to the viking aera where Shieldmaidens used to go on raids and participate in battles alongside men, and there has been research that proves how some of the females even disguised themselves as men to go to war.
No matter how you look at it, the history of Nordic women is one of strength and valor. So if you are looking to date a Nordic woman, you should keep the following in mind. (Comprehensive list thanks to Nettdating expert http://www.dating-kompass.no)
1. Do Not Try To Boss Her Around
She is Nordic, she is gorgeous, and she’s most probably a feminist. She takes gender equality rather seriously and anchors on the idea with all her heart and soul, and never shies away from calling herself one. She believes in equal roles of both genders in the society and would like to be treated as an equal. So when at a restaurant, do not order for her and may be even let her pick up the tab every once in a while. Which brings us to our next tip.
2. Let Her Pay For Dinner
While you may be an alpha male in search for your perfect mate, it takes effort, patience, and chivalry in just the right amount to win the heart of your lady love. Your inner gentleman may not allow you to let her pay for dinner, but in Nordic countries (and with Nordic women) you don’t pay for dinner because you were born with XY chromosomes. In fact, if you insist on paying for dinner, she will be offended. Nordic women are financially independent and they view it as part of basic rights, however this does not mean flowers and pulling a chair for her is also discourteous.
3. Don’t be Surprised If She Asks You Out
Nordic women do not necessarily wait for men to approach them. In fact, men in Nordic countries tend to wait till they’re approached by women. To be honest, when you look like Alexander Skarsgård you can’t spend two minutes at a bar without being approached by beautiful women. But if you are not Alexander Skarsgård, which we assume you are not, you can still wait for her to make the first move. However, if you think you have to take the initiative, try to be friendly, disarming, and do not even try to give off the alpha male vibes when you approach her.
4. Do Not Invade Her Personal Space
If you’re used to getting on a hug basis the first time you meet someone, beware- dating a Nordic woman is different because the culture is different in the matters of physical contact. Being touchy feely is more likely to put her off and who knows you might never see the woman again. It’s imperative to give her the space she requires and the time she needs (for decision making and to prepare her mind calculating all the pros and cons of dating you) and then think of your next move. Since Nordic women are liberated about their views and also sexuality, one could easily tell if she is comfortable sharing her time with you or not.
Make wise moves on the attractive and distinctive women of Nordic countries and you might just find your ‘the one’.
If you are planning to go to Norway or you’re based in this country as an expat, just search for the term “nettdating” if you want to use a local dating site. If you are confused which one to use – because there are many nettdating sites – you can use a nettdating comparison service.
