Dating a dutch guy
What is the Dutch men dating culture or how should you approach Dutch women?
Here are 10 things you should you know about Dutch women and Dutch men before entering the Dutch dating game.
While many foreigners initially find dating in the Netherlands daunting or inaccessible, understanding Dutch personality traits and mentality can help reduce miscommunicating the ‘flirting' signals as practised by Dutch women and Dutch men.
Of course, similar to elsewhere, online dating in the Netherlands is increasingly becoming the norm as taboos are shed, particularly among older daters.
On the other hand, expat women (at least those from non-Scandinavian countries) tend to complain that they don’t feel quite as beautiful without the constant explicit attention and, more importantly, they can’t seem to figure out how to snag a local lover.
So, whether you’re looking to knock nethers in Amsterdam or ensnare a Dutchman passing through your neck of the woods, here’s Tipsy’s compilation of advice from women (expats living in the Netherlands) who have (eventually) succeeded in bagging one of these elusive prizes: • Project strength.
Order a drink (or a few); as theatre critic George Jean Nathan used to say, “I drink to make other people more interesting.” Do what it takes to get fascinated with your Dutchman. “A drunk Dutchman behaves like a normal man,” a woman in Amsterdam told me.
She was Italian, so her expectation for “normal” may be slightly skewed — but it’s still good advice.
Women in most countries are conditioned to hold back — will yourself to make the first move.

That way, afterward, when public transportation is closed, the man will feel obligated to give you a ride on the rack over his back wheel.
Ride sidesaddle, wrap your arms around him, nuzzle him, slip a hand down his pants, and see if you can get him to lose balance.
Dutch men generally tend to be honest and straightforward about their life situations — they consider this part of looking for an appropriate match. Could you envision living the rest of your life in the Netherlands?
