We’ll tell you whether we want to hang out or not, when we’re hungry, how funny your hair looks today, if you’re a good kisser… So don’t be taken aback when a girl is saying something you might interpret as rude: she’s just being honest with you. Imagine you’ve been on a great date, having drinks in a café or bar, and then it’s time to pay. I know many Dutch girls who believe that the guy should pay on the first date. But don’t be surprised when the girl offers to split the bill, especially on the second/third/fourth date.
Whether an ESN volunteer or just someone you met in Tivoli, the Albert Heijn or somewhere else.
I guess you also noticed that Dutchies might be a little different from the girls where you’re from.
