Dutch dating habits
However one consequence of the liberal Dutch culture is that you cannot be expected to be wined and dined by your partner every time.
Ditch the ill feelings towards the dutch guy who is rumoured to Go Dutch, when you are sitting at a table across from him, and slowly clearing your plate on a date.
For instance, always refer to his nation as The Netherlands and not merely as Holland; this is because both North and South Holland are merely two out of twelve provinces in all.
So if the guy hails from outside the Hollands, he might feel that you have not bothered to read up on the land’s history or even chosen to exclude the other ten provinces because you don’t deem them important enough.
They are considerate not only of the wishes and needs of their partners but for that matter of any other living creature they meet on the road like old ladies, babies and even stray animals.
When meeting a Dutchman for a date, you can be sure that he will be on time and that he will be a perfect driver – following all traffic rules to the T.
