Norwegians like the nature a lot, so barbecue in the mountains can be a cheaper option to fine-dine. Trying to learn some outdoor sports increases your chances.
Inviting someone home can be nice, don't worry about the booze, everyone brings their own. Norway is very egalitarian society so traditional gender roles are less applicable; it is perfectly okay for the lady to pay half of the restaurant costs or even full if she asked you out. If you are meeting other expats, then the rules of the respective communities will apply. Overall, it can be hard to date, but it is not impossible at all. By the end of it, I actually managed a hot guy to buy me a whiskey at a bar, and I promise there was no hanky-panky involved.

What are the good and bad neighborhoods of Oslo, Norway? What is the dating scene like in London for American expat men? It is no wonder travelers are choosing Gay Olso for their next holiday destination! Gay Oslo really does have something for everyone if you are just willing to explore and look a little beneath the surface.
Same-sex marriage has been legal in Norway since , and in this peaceful and open-minded Nordic Capital, queer travelers will find small rainbow flags on almost every store, club and restaurant window. Norwegians are famously shy and withdrawn, loving to brag about how withdrawn they are — but we have to disagree and found Norwegians in Oslo warm, open and sincere…once you start a conversation.
While in the long, beautiful summer days it is easy to meet gay locals in the parks and around town, in the bitterly cold winters you might want to turn to hookups to meet a friendly local in Oslo to show you around. Oslo is well-known as one of the most gay-friendly cities in Europe and has a small but vibrant gay nightlife scene.
Conversely, this is no vibe like a gay club vibe, and we loved how lesbians and gay men frequently mix in all the Olso gay bars and having an inclusive night out with our queer family. One place where Grinder and other gay hook-up apps really made a difference worldwide is the closing of saunas and bathhouses. While other European destinations such as Prague , Brussels , and Valencia have bucked the trend and continue to have a thriving gay sauna scene, in Olso, this is not the case, and today only Club Hercules remains — though it is one of the top gay saunas in Scandinavia.
Otherwise, the crowd is mostly older Bear Viking guys. Re-entrance is free on Sunday with a stamp, so you can visit the Hercules gay sauna in Oslo before 8 am that morning and head back for a second time after 3 pm at no extra cost. They host mostly themed parties with specials dress codes on the second Saturday of every month and have Bondage workshops. I've known my Norwegian boyfriend for 3 years, and we have been together for two and a half, living together for two!
So yes, they do, like in any other place in the world, cultural differences can be hard, but it's not impossible! Since half a year I've been living here in Oslo, and I am starting to get to know the Norwegian citizens. And for what I've been told, when a Norwegian guy stares at you he is flirting with you.
Now I am half Italian, born in Spain, and flirting back in the south is absolutely not just staring at someone, but here in Norway it is! So he probably didn't stare because your tinted, but because he liked you.
Duly reported your post. Racist and right wing views have no place in Norway, as proved after the appalling events, committed by a nobody with similar views this summer! Although it does take time to get accepted and yes they really do stare! Now i know that it is actually flirting.
Otherwise i have never been happier in my life and am grateful to have met my Norwegian love. We love foreign women, but I am afraid our dating and flirting culture leaves much to be desired.. I don't know if it's the cold climate or what it is, but I understand that it comes off creepy, and I think we could do with a little more communicative approach.. But mostly, we're good guys, just a bit shy. Also, we are a little afraid of speaking english at first..
A couple of beers loosens the toungue.. I must agree,they are the most handsome men i have seen: However it does take quite some time for them to come around as they seem to hold back on many issues,i guess there are some insecurities or fears they have when it comes to foreign women!
That fades away with time. I am glad i was out that night. Bottom line we are all human and the heart wants what it wants How about Norwegian women. Just a general comment to the topic: Yes Norwegians are reserved people - I also think most are uncomfortable if foreign men hug Norwegian men or something which is common in many other cultures or even males kissing - it's all about the comfort zone and different cultures have different opinions of it.
People in Norway just dont strike up conversations with strangers the way they do in India.
Norwegian men dating foreign women is actually more common then not here in Norway. Personally i come from a very international family, my father is married to a philisophy professor from Ucraine.
The recommendation came after the conflict with the pornographic ads had been an issue in Trondheim. It is an online dating sites! Archived from the original on August 14, After a couple of times having sex with the same person, you might end up going for a coffee. Archived from the original on June 5, One guy actually stopped me on the street to ask, "Why are you wearing a hat like that? Norge IDAG.
My one uncle has a wife from thailand, another uncle with a japanese girlfriend. My grandfather lived many years in china as a sailor before meeting my grandmother here. And my wife is the former sales director of greenhills in the Philippines. Statistically a majority of norwegian men are finding life partners outside of norway, and norwegian women also find husbands from philipines, turkey, iraq, spain, italy and greece.
We are fascinated by the exoticism of certain nationalities, and pardon my saying but the brown skin of many people is exotic, beautiful and fascinating compared to our pale snow-white skin caused by the long winters. And yes, the staring is a form of flirting. We are generally a bit shy and it useally takes time to get the "friend status".
But once we are friends, we are loyal to the end. Well iam glad people brought this issue up so foreigners who live there or willing to live there will know what to expect. I believe we are all get fascinated and attracted to what we don't have white people tend to like tanned people and the other way around so it's just natural! I am South African and I am dating a Norwegian guy. I have known him since but he is back in Norway now.
In multicultural or multiracial relationships there will will always be stares. I think everywhere in the world there are stereotypes but you do find those who are really open minded and I am sure you will find someone like as well. Good luck: Just one question for you guys: Do Norwegian gay men date foreign gay men? Are they attracted to dark-haired pale-skinned guys?
Thanks in advance. Hello IkerAndini.
Just to remind you that the thread title is Do Norwegian men date foreign women? Kindly stick to the subject. I am from Philippines, Im proud to say that i am married to a norwegian.
