Dating dutch women
Whether an ESN volunteer or just someone you met in Tivoli, the Albert Heijn or somewhere else.I guess you also noticed that Dutchies might be a little different from the girls where you’re from.Typically, the Dutch are stereotyped as economical (to use an understatement), a bit rude and cheese lovers.I don’t know about the cheese (if you want to date me, just offer me cheese – but that’s me), but the other two stereotypes have some impact on dating a Dutch girl.The Dutch tend to believe it is better to be honest than mislead someone.To the untrained dater it may appear rude or direct but it is a refreshing scene of playing with your cards on the table.
We’ll tell you whether we want to hang out or not, when we’re hungry, how funny your hair looks today, if you’re a good kisser… So don’t be taken aback when a girl is saying something you might interpret as rude: she’s just being honest with you. Imagine you’ve been on a great date, having drinks in a café or bar, and then it’s time to pay. I know many Dutch girls who believe that the guy should pay on the first date. But don’t be surprised when the girl offers to split the bill, especially on the second/third/fourth date.
These girls want to be independant and want to show you that they can pay for their own drinks or meal.
