Here it is a little Post-it hidden in the guy’s pocket. It is only after some years in Norway that I realised that men do flirt in their own peculiar way in order not to do anything that might invade your private space.p So conclusion number one: men won’t do anything more than just looking at you for a few seconds to show interest because they are shy and/or scared and/or very respectful of women. The second basic principle is logically linked to the effect of the first principle. Scandinavian women work for it, whereas we sit there and bat our eyelashes.As men are not very brave and need a lot of moral support and encouragement to talk to women, I have observed that there is an inversion of roles in what we, Southerners, see as the usual suspects: man chasing woman, woman playing hard to get, man trying to convince woman anyway by telling her that her eyes reflect all the stars of this universe, that she is beautiful, that no, she doesn’t look fat in that dress. They get active and invite men to dance and flirt openly whereas Southern women are taught to do these things subtly and discretely.This means showing up on time, not making assumptions about gender identity, and avoiding off-color jokes.I have been contacted by more than one person wanting to date Scandinavian people or even marry one of us. Marrying a Scandinavian Let me answer the last question first: Yes, many of us choose not to get married but that doesn’t mean that we don’t live together or have children in well-established partnerships.“The beauty of Scandinavian culture is that it values independence and self-fulfilment,” says Thomas.
In Copenhagen, where every Friday and Saturday evening see some kind of meat market going on in town, people look at each other for minutes and hours accross the room (party, bar) until one of them comes up to the other and says “my place or your place? Or women just come up to a guy in a cafe, handing their number and saying “I like you, call me”. The Scandinavian word for ‘date’ is really old-fashioned and one my grandmother might have used but probably didn’t because I don’t think she dated either.We may not have good words for ‘dating’ but we certainly have a great word for that spouse-without-a-wedding-ring we have back home: “samboer.” Which means “together-liver.” And yes, that word works better in Scandinavian.I’ve written a short story about a woman from Arizona and a man from Norway.
They’ve met online and now they’re going to meet in person for the first time.
But I know from statistics that more people live together than are married – and that is counting all the old people who got married back when that was still something you did (in Norway it was illegal to live with someone without being married up until 1972 – imagine that! Dating a Scandinavian I’ve always been fascinated by American date movies because it’s like watching some weird rituals in some far-away country I don’t know very much about.
