Danes don't really date (neither do most people now) - Metropolife
“Attempting to date a Dane is a strenuous process, a journey filled with Once you get over the idea of talking to a man who has far less arm. Photo: Sigfrid Lundberg/Flickr Dating a Dane can be a little lighter on the wallet . Whereas many cultures in Europe deem it the norm for the male to whip his wallet out at the end of an expensive meal, in Denmark it is more. All couples are stock photo couples and have nothing to do with these stories. I think lots of Danish guys here aren't doing the first or second step in that overattached to my male friends after a very short time or just texting.
He wants us to enjoy our food and be able to talk and be physically and mentally available. He wants us to be able to connect and he wants us to show our little daughter appropriate table manners.

I find it endearing that he had to tell it to me via e-mail. Explore the world through travel. Travel expenses take a huge chunk of our budget. We see to it that we travel to Denmark and other neighbouring countries at least once a year.
Traveling allowed me to immerse myself deeper in the European culture. See travel is an important part of a Danish family and so we do it.
Collect memories, not material things. Yes, you probably saw this coming after reading about why we make it a point to travel. When we travel, we enjoy long walks and talks, as well as getting in touch with history and indulging our interests.
Shopping is not on top of our list so to speak. My husband has instilled in me that you feel a different level of happiness when you gain intangible things through the pursuit of gathering memories and not after buying new shoes for that matter. Ever wonder why Denmark has always been the country of the happiest people on Earth? Now, you know why. Affection can take many forms.

However, he finds different ways to show me how much he loves me. Knowing that made me appreciate even the littlest things he does for me. Voluntary back or foot rubs, words of encouragement, letting me decide what clothes he should wear sometimes, doing the dishes among other things are a few of his languages of love.
Be emotionally and physically available for your spouse. In marriage, it is easy to get lost into the swing of things so much so that at some point we neglect to provide the intimate needs of our spouse. My husband has thought me the value of always making yourself available to satisfy this need. That does not mean that you have to do it for hours on end but sometimes a kiss or hug is all that matters.
Being emotionally and physically available makes your partner feel more special and appreciated. Through him, I learned that love is respect and respect is love. I put more focus on the things that we agree upon and I do not dwell on trivial things.
My husband has taught me to love him for who he is because he loves me for who I am. We feel that if we appreciate what we have, we would be in a happier marriage.
In that way, we get more out of our relationship. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
Happiness is a choice. I know I need not marry to know this but my husband has reinforced this in our marriage. Sulking and being bitter about anything will not do you any good. Being married to my Danish husband also helped me discover that I am capable of giving and receiving a selfless kind of love.
I am not a relationship expert at all. This is random Asian couple I found in between all the stock photos.
So everything is just easy going and not too deep, and things end and you move on to your next chapter in life. Everyone is too occupied with their career, studies, and friends to find a serious relationship until later in life. The local guys will bombard you with heart emojis and cheesy texts until you go on a date with them. I would say that from what I have seen though, locals in Taiwan and China dated in a more movie-like way, with all the drama and the overload of cuteness.
Which is cute in dramas but really, it looks cringy in real life or I am just a bitter future cat, no. But being fluffy, overly attentive and cute while dating is one thing, I saw a huge number of Taiwanese and Chinese people cheating on their spouse and going out with mistresses way too many times to think that the movie-kinda romance it the norm over there.
Anyway, I still think that compared to Denmark, local Taiwanese were much much reserved and traditional in regards to Dating. So what did I personally learn about local, non-local or Nordics? Bad Bumble and Tinder dates are funny, entertaining stories on a girls night.
