Norwegian dating culture
You might ask yourself when seeing this title: is there really anything to say about seduction in Norway? In Italy one could write about the casanovas and the sexy brunettes agreeing with langourious eyes and loud conversations, in France it would be the born-seductors and the classy and snoby Parisian women teasing men with their red lipstick and long cigarettes. Yes the Norwegian people also have some codes and mysteries surrounding seduction, and they will all be revealed to you now!As a disclaimer I must say they are probably not all revealed here, just those I’ve managed to catch despite poor Norwegian language skills and many cultural misunderstandings.Which is good, I guess, when you think in terms of gender balance, feministic battles etc. but very bad for those others who were not raised in the North and who try to adapt to these foreign codes of equality even on their way to the bedroom.The third basic principle, which is the most important of all, is the link between all the principles, the foundation of Norwegian seduction. Most would say that the French also drink alcohol, and that is true obviously.I found out that the Norwegian art of seduction is based on three basic principles. In any setting (a metro, a party, a bar) a man or a woman will look at you directly in the eyes for several seconds.
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”.
This is the M moment for Norwegian couples in the making.
What comes next is the infamous party-trilogy: after-party, sex and hungover (and sometimes a bonus like vomit and morning-after pill).
Oh I have a that country coloured already on my world map of origin of girls I had sex with. You know, for our kids to grow up in nature and stuff.
Guy: To the village in Trøndelag I grew up in and live 30 meters away from my parents.
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.
