The dating battleground can be a fierce, unrelenting and savage arena, and Denmark is by no means an exception, especially when it comes to non-Danes trying to woo Danish women.
While it may have been quirky and charming to go up to a beautiful girl doing her weekly shop and try and spark up a conversation in your home country, if you do so in Denmark you may be seen as completely insane.
So not only will you not get the girl, you may also be sectioned, and that is what is universally known as a bad day.
One thing that I've heard time and time again from Danish women is that their male counterparts are hopeless at flirting, or at least at flirting well.
I'm not suggesting you go crazy but if you can talk the talk it may go a long way, especially with that accent many Danish girls will find adorable – more on that later.
One of the most noticeable traits about Danish women, and Danes in general, is that they aren’t too fussed about your financial position.
Just because your bike is a hand-me-down and your shoes aren’t designer doesn’t mean you are out of the running.A man in Madrid once told me that Danish girls on vacation were easy. They are for sending roses to your wife or girlfriend, and in France, to your mistress too.In foreign lands, men buy women jewelry and furs to win their favors: they open doors and carry furniture.You will go from being a slightly grumpy, a little podgy and kind of balding expat to being as irresistible as a cross between a baby Shih Tzu puppy and Brad Pitt circa 1996.OK, maybe not quite, but they will appreciate you attempting their ridiculously difficult Danish language and a little bit of effort goes along way.Whilst this may be a slightly exaggerated metaphor for dating in Denmark, there are some unwritten rules in the land of the Vikings that seem to have become ingrained into their psyche.
