Instead of having “formal arrangements with strangers” as one of my floor-mates described, they often just hang out with one another, grab a bite to eat, and get to know each other in a more personal and less formal manner.Unlike American culture, there isn’t a big emphasis on a “first date”.The open understanding and expressing of sexual desires in everyday Danish culture eliminates derogative social identities toward people who casually hook up with one another.Danes know it happens, understand it’s a natural part of life, and don’t judge others because of it.
Dance floor make outs “DFMOs”, almost never happen, and no one ever grinds on the dance floor!In fact, the biggest difference I’ve witnessed between Denmark and the U. They enlightened me on the fact that Danes just recently added this formal structured dating to their culture within the past 5-10 years. While on dates, men and women are expected to follow “proper dating etiquette” and carry out very gender specific behaviors. I’ve rarely noticed Danes out to dinner at restaurants, or engaging in traditional “date-like” activities.Rather, Danes tend to try and meet people and befriend them without the additional pressure and need to impress that comes with a more formal date night.“Hooking-up” is also a very different aspect of the dating culture in Denmark in comparison to the U. At home “hooking-up” is a very sensitive and exclusive topic of discussion.
This can probably be most attributed to their “frisind” ideology, which can be loosely translated to free-minded.
