Another job seeking example to illustrate:. You lost your job and you have been unemployed for a year. You tell your future employer about the community work you did, the courses you took to improve your skills, and the freelance jobs you took up.

You embellish the truth and use nice phrases. Another strategy that will help in that domain is self-irony. Either way, all jerks take themselves super seriously. Only 13 to go. Tinder feels like a game because it is a game. You can meet awesome one-night stands on Tinder. You might meet the mother of your children. Other Scandinavian dating sites are more grown-up. They focus on starting and nurturing meaningful relationships.

Your typical Tinder smash is not a meaningful relationship. Swipe right, chat with a lot of girls, have fun, use condoms, and all that other stereotypical advice. We love International Cupid.
These days everyone and their mom is on Tinder. International Cupid targets a particular niche. The huge perk here is distance-independent dating. On Tinder, you can swipe within a larger radius. Ultimately, though, most women have the default 50 miles. They will not be looking outside of that. On International Cupid, members are already into the long-distance meet-cute idea. They are prepared for the ups and downs of a relationship with a foreigner. And, in most cases, women on International Cupid have also thought about or are even in the process of relocating.
It may be hard to get the same commitment out of your Tinder hook-up. The more you pay, the more you value stuff. Duolingo is free and most people ditch it in the first few days. There is a certain level of commitment that comes from the membership fee. It goes both ways, too. Women on premium Scandinavian dating sites are much more committed to finding a long-term relationship. Scandinavian dating sites and the entire Scandinavian dating scene are super feminist. Not feminazi, but definitely feminist. In Scandinavia, women are happy to share the bill.
If they asked you out it happens more than you think , they are paying. And yeah, btw, the pee-pee thing together with skiing is a knowledge we learn on ski trips with 20 layers of heavy clothes and no toilet for miles around. As we say in norwegian: I love the way you write! There will usually be beer. If you still want to get to know more people give me a shout. Ok so, I have a nasty cold, and reading this made me giggle so bad it developed into a full on cough attack that nearly imploded my lungs.
You literally almost killed me!
Also, you absolutely nailed my own experience on sukker. Well done miss frog! So be as you are, an be well. I want to meet them!! Although a stereotype, your description of the scene is quite accurate. I was on sukker. Not a typical Norwegian thing to do, so it puts them off a bit. Have you seen this TED talk about how a woman turned around all the criteria that dating sites make you fill out and decided her OWN criteria http: I think the best way to get to know people is through friends and signing up for activities.
Your blog is really funny. How a foreigner look at us norwegians is really interesting. And sukker is horrible — have tried it, had som horrible dates and never again.
And about making friends in Norway, of course it is possible but it takes more time and some of the explanation is logic: Hi, interesting subjective impression. Fact is that people experience Sukker very different. Not surprisingly they can sort out the best. Just like anywhere else, especially when going out. Blaming the people on Sukker, or the service it self, backfire, so the best is to learn from those who succseed. Being your selv is a keyfactor, and the knowledge that success often dont come over night, even on dating sites.
Patience and being smart pays of. Like so many before me, I thoroughly enjoyed your blog! I lasted on sukker. It is a bit frightening how many people I meet incl. Norwegians who move to Oslo as adults, for example who feel the same way! And yet, it is still flummoxing somehow…. Du skriver utrolig morsomt om oss nordmenn: I love love love your blog! I live in USA and met several Scandinavians. Your blog is exactly what I was thinking.

Your style is amazing! In an honest way I can be your friend, too; since I experience the same things: I am a southerner woman, so Norwegian-Mediterranean is a pretty weird combo. I also want somebody like me, some spontaneous guy with fire in his eyes, and not a cold-ass Viking, no matter how beautiful he is! I wonder, if me and my ex would have met now, would he love me for filling up his criteria of being able to shit in degrees?
Your blog is hilarious. And explains a lot of what happened with me and this male Norwegian friend I had a major crush on. I moved on and started dating someone else. To my chagrin, he completely stonewalled me after I mentioned a boyfriend. I had no idea what hit me, to be honest! But still very essentially Norwegian, from your description! I have learned more about my fellow countrymen from reading these types of blogs than from actually living in this country!
I also had no idea until it was far too late that you have to participate in certain activities to make friends or get to know your neighbors. By Norwegian standards, I am thus a weirdo. I have actually had much more success in my friendships and love life with people from other countries. Good for you Thor! Congratulations on being your own man. They might send the Scandinavian police after you. This is an old post, but I really enjoyed it! I moved to Oslo last September, and just like you have tried out Sukker to meet people, as my collegues are sweet but not very social.
It is a crazy crazy world out there! Hi,my name is George, and i have 1 day experience with this website sukker. Hmm weird , i sent message to support sukker. Hei We are a norwegian dating site and one therefor need to have a norwegian phone number to register.
You will find other international dating sites in the internet. Have a nice day! Med vennlig hilsen, Inger i sukker. Has noone informed you that not all friluftsliv is friluftsliv? Rather it is a code expression for the SMers. Ha ha, you explained it: As a French living in Denmark omg I relate sooooo much to this!!!
