Like, Belgians say those words out loud to each other and about each other after just a few dates with someone. In New York it can take a structure of months of once-a-week dates before “the talk” ever happens.
You know…the talk where the two dating people in question talk about monogamy and possibly the word rears its epic head.
Chatting, talking on the phone, sending emails and getting to know new people have been very important for me and very rewarding emotionally speaking.
You talk to people more that you would imagine, you confide in them more that you would expect.
"*The divorce rate is very low in Belgium*The rate of unmarried parents is very low, as of most partners stay married.*Sex is very liberal and talked about openly, with a large variety to choose from, and sex is shown on tv even in the afternoon!
I can’t speak for all of Belgium, but as a general rule outside of maybe Brussels, I can tell you… Of course there’s the usual dating motions to go through and all the getting to know each other on the first date like there is in America, but here there are just less games. Let that sink in, because it’s still sinking in for me even though I’ve been living here almost three years. New York’s a city like no other and therefore the games played in dating must be like no other.

We live in a fluff-free era—people know what they want and aren't afraid to express their opinion in ALL CAPS, followed by a series of passive-aggressive emojis.

These are all childs play when compared with finding and keeping a Dutch woman.Now this post might upset some, and if as a result I’m grabbed by a group of angry Dutch women, and am taken to my own personal hell, the drie dwaze dagen sale at de Bijenkorf, and am forced to carry their bags while they scream at me “IK ZEG SKINNY JEANS, DIT IS EEN BOOTCUT JIJ IDIOOT.” I’ll say to my enemies, “no need to be so aggressive, I was just telling it like it is.”The things I do for my readers!As Grandmaster Flash once said in the song White Lines, ‘don’t, don’t, don’t do it! Even after 10 years in the land of deep fried cuisine, I still can’t break the habit of opening doors for women.You can talk to a person, but can't see what they look like.Even if you have a great conversation with a person, you're not going to want to bone them if they look like Rex from close to getting it right—the one thing they didn't anticipate: charging money kills erections faster than, I dunno, bees?
