Danish gay dating: Do some reconnaissance first, maybe do some shopping.
Danes are casual, but not sloppy. And light on the cologne, guys. Meet the guys first Now, as I promised, back to how to meet women in the first place. What you need to do is come into their circle of friends. I suggest talking to one of the guys in the group. And I think you can take it from there. If alcohol vanished from the Earth, so would romance in Denmark. I saw a movie this week.
It was the latest in long-running series called Father of Four. The series has been running since the Fifties. As the kids grow up, they just replace them with new actors. Anyway, in this episode, there was a romance.
What struck me watching the movie was that the male romantic lead was visibly shorter than the female lead. In the Danish film, there was no attempt to hide it. They had them walk side by side through a meadow. I kept thinking. The man is NOT in charge. He is a not a Frenchman who will pursue you to the ends of the earth. If you are a romance novelist, the Danish man is not your dream man. He will cook and help with the housework. He will take being a father seriously. In fact, you may have to force yourself on him.
Danish women carry their own packages Why are Danish men like this? Danish women, they say, like to do things for themselves. They can carry their own packages. So, the Danish male approach is largely passive. They wait to see if the woman is interested. Danish men do not want to offend women. But they can occasionally err a bit on the soft side. For example, a few weeks ago, we had a big storm in Denmark, and it knocked down some large trees.
Before the local government came to collect them, some people were sawing off bits for free firewood, or to make furniture, or other arts and crafts project. On our street, there was a very large tree down, and as I was walking by that Saturday, I saw a young couple trying to take part of it home. The small, slender young woman was sawing away at this big tree with an old-fashioned manual saw, while her boyfriend was just standing there, smiling, with his hands in his pockets.
Maybe he had a back injury — he was about 25, so maybe had a very youthful back injury. Or maybe he was a big wimp who was willing to let his girlfriend saw a giant tree stump while he stood there, acting like a giant tree stump. Who knows? He will not write poetry and pursue his beloved to the ends of the Earth. Dating in Denmark is hard, even for the Danes, and it will probably be hard for you too. This essay is from a series I wrote shortly after I arrived in Denmark. The line drawings are my own. In a land with few limits, Americans draw a firm line between work and sex, based on the rather prissy notion that no one should have to put up with sexual come-ons or even sexual talk in order to keep a job, and that anyone who does should be compensated with a hefty legal settlement.
All I can think about at a Danish Christmas party is how much an American lawyer could earn off the proceedings. One stalk of corporate mistletoe, I am sure, would generate more than enough business for him to redecorate his office with the high-priced furniture at Illums Bolighus and his wife with silver from George Jensen.
Call a lawyer This American concept of sexual harassment has been difficult to explain to my Danish male co-workers, who like to tell saucy jokes in the office, and whose hands have occasionally ended up attached to my hair, shoulders, and bottom until I threaten to call an American lawyer. For them, I offer this easy-to-follow rule: Anything I might want to discuss with, say, Danish heartthrob Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in a jacuzzi over two flutes of champagne, I do not want to discuss with you, married father of four, over six pages of computer printouts on letterhead.
Anything I might want to do with Nikolaj by candlelight, I do not want to do with you by fluorescent light. The overfamiliarity between co-workers is just one of the reasons Christmas partys are difficult for foreigners. The structure of the party, the long tables and the fixed seats, is a challenge in itself. At American parties, the format is loose and everybody mingles, which allows one to break free of a bore with a number of convenient excuses, such as Hey! I must say hi. At a Danish Christmas party, you sit at a seat assigned to you by luck of the draw or cruel party planners and are expected to chat for seven hours.
Snaps, a Viking tradition What do Danish people say to each other for seven hours at those tables? Of course, I know what two close friends say to each other, but what about people who have nothing in common but a copy machine? This is where snaps comes in. Snaps is also just the beginning of an enjoyable program of Danish food. Of course, the Christmas party has its own delicacies, most of which, taken off the table and reassembled like a puzzle, would form a large, live, and angry pig.
Except, of course, for the parts which are herring. When you are a foreigner, Danish people thrill to making you try everything, the odder the better, and watching your reaction when you discover that there is an extra layer of pork paste underneath the bacon and mushrooms. If other foreigners are reading this, the secret is to take small bites of everything and smile a lot. When fellow partygoers are distracted, you can soak up the alcohol in your stomach with bread and butter.
Drinking songs After the almond has been found in the ris a la mande and the snaps topped off with wine and aquavit, the Viking drinking songs begin. At any rate, everyone but you will know all the words to these songs, and enjoy singing them enough not to notice you are sitting against the back wall looking confused. For foreigners, it is time to go to the loo and pretend to wash your hands for about an hour.
By the time you get back, the deejay will be playing. This is a mixed blessing, since from what I can tell, there is a paragraph in the Danish constitution that requires Danish deejays to play George Michael every five songs. But loud music means that you no longer have to pretend to talk to the people next to you, and, freed from your chair, you can shift around and talk to the people you actually like. Every once in a while the deejay plays an old Danish Eurovision song contest entry, and then it becomes easy to tell the locals from the foreigners again.
The Danes are the ones on their feet in ecstatic remembrance, while the foreigners are sitting down looking bewildered, wondering when George Michael will come back. Ping-pong tables By this point in the evening, those people who plan to score have chosen their target, and perhaps even their location.
Some people leave together, but even at home and in bed, I have to wonder how much fun this drunken sex can possibly be. How much sexual technique can these snaps-soaked middle managers have to offer? For the women, it must be about as erotic as having the statue of Bishop Absaolm fall on top of you. Years ago, before my very first Christmas party, I was told that people would go wild at the party but then forget the whole thing the next day. Somehow, nobody ever does. This essay is from a series I wrote in co-operation with the Danish tabloid BT in , shortly after I arrived in Denmark.

Here we were, foreigners, and we were clearly not getting our cut of the criminal millions being made on the streets of Copenhagen. All we did was go to work every day and pay Danish taxes. We figured we had better get started. After considering a variety of profitable crimes, we decided on a male prostitution ring, with the idea that our workers could do internal projects on slow nights.

But our male escorts would not provide sex: Instead, they would offer romance. Longing looks and sweet words Foreign men play a curious role in the world of Danish romance, since they can sometimes make a Danish woman realize exactly what she is missing: A man in Madrid once told me that Danish girls on vacation were easy. Well, no wonder. 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:
