Making new Dutch friends or partners may be difficult at first but once break through, you'll find that Dutch girls and men can make very loyal friends or partners for life. It's important to be aware of the impact of cultural differences on your relationship.Misunderstandings can easily arise when dating someone new, especially if your different upbringing means that you often take very different things for granted.The value of equality seeps into many interactions in Dutch dating.
The Netherlands has less of a Dutch men dating culture than other countries, for example the US or UK.
There are less ‘rules’ about when to call back, kiss or spend the night, and actions are based more on instinct rather than an unwritten play book.
Similarly, in the Netherlands compliments are not given nor received easily and outlandish compliments can be perceived as fake by both Dutch men and Dutch women.
Relying on the Dutch penchant for modesty and honesty, your compliments should be the same.
It also comes down to the Dutch laid-back attitude, which tends to extend to clothes (and makeup), so you may want to take it down a notch if you're used to getting very gussied up for a date.
