Norwegian dating culture

And when they are dressed in the national costume, the Bunad, you can barely tear your eyes off them.Above all they are smart, dignified and proud of both their feminity as well as intellect.This move has reportedly reaped rich dividends for Norwegian industry and economy and is now being monitored by other European countries, including France, Germany and Spain.

So I might have gotten the dating “rules” of your country (which might *not* be USA and therefore not part of those American movie rules) entirely wrong and am thus making a big thing out of nothing.

Dating rules So to make it clear what I’m talking about: As far as I understand it, dating in so many non-Scandinavian countries may consist of a man asking a woman he doesn’t know very well to go out to dinner and/or a movie with him, his picking her up and dropping her off afterwards and his paying the bills and making the decisions, and the first date ends with a kiss at the most? If so, buckle up and see how we non-date in Scandinavia.

Greatly empowered Women hold a significant place in Norwegian society.

They are found in professional and leadership positions in all walks of life.

Norway introduced a quota system in 2008 to force listed companies to appoint more women to their boards; under this law at least 30% of board members in companies are required to be women.

Norwegians tend to feel uncomfortable with touching and close contact during conversations.

Keep your distance and avoid physical contact unless the woman is a close friend or relative.

In Norway women not only believe themselves to be capable and independent but are viewed as such by the larger society.

The women are adequately backed by Norwegian law and supported by men of their own society which is why gender discrimination is taken very seriously.

Norwegian women may even seem rather reserved initially and take a while in warming up to you.
