First, I need to let you realize that dating in Denmark can be tough if you are a foreigner. We’re not trying to discourage you, but be aware that dating in Denmark is remarkably different than in other western countries.
Danes have a very particular dating culture. They tend to skip the flirting altogether and are instead more direct with their emotions.
So, to have a better chance with a Danish girl, you need to know about a few of their quirks.

She Prefers To Be Among Friends
Like we mentioned, dating in Denmark is not like other countries. If you approach a girl you don’t know and ask her out for a cup of coffee, expect rejection. You’ll have the same result if you approach a girl at a club and ask to dance or go out for a smoke.
You might be wondering what’s wrong with you, or you conclude that she just wasn’t interested. However, the more you try, the more you’ll notice a trend. You’ll find that not a single Danish girl will want to go on a date with you. However, the real reason is that Danish women are not good with people they don’t know.
The way to meet Danish women is to become their friend or become a mutual friend. You’ll make a lot of progress if you make male Danish friends first. You instantly become more trustworthy by being a mutual friend. Don’t expect them to jump into your lap though. You’ll still need to get to know them better.
Underdress Rather Than Overdress
Danish women are not impressed with guys who try to appear flashy. Brands, fancy watches and gadgets are not going to impress her. She prefers to dress casually and appreciates a guy who does the same.
Unless the occasion calls for it, don’t overdress yourself. Also, don’t expect a Danish girl to get all done up. She’ll most likely wear a comfortable dress rather than wear something fancy. Remember to keep it casual but not sloppy.
Money Doesn’t Impress Her
Danish girls prefer to judge people based on their merits, rather than their possessions. They don’t care if you have a fancy apartment, the newest Mercedes, or how prestigious your job is.
The society in Denmark is very fair, and very nonhierarchical. This means that everyone sees each other on the same level. Not that they don’t have respect for anybody, but they understand that everyone is more or less equal. So by trying to seem better than others, you’ll be sabotaging yourself.
She’s Attracted to Intelligence
So you can’t use your material things, but you can use that thing in your head. Your brain will be your best ally in charming a Dane. We don’t mean that you need to know a lot of useless facts, but that you are a worldly person.
An in-depth conversation on just about anything will be better than any small talk. Just don’t get ahead of yourself and try to make yourself seem smarter. She will be interested in a guy who is down to earth and authentic.
She Interested In Good Deeds
If you want to impress a Danish girl, mention something you did that had a positive impact. Danes care about society at large as well as the environment. So they’re more interested in things that you have done rather than what you have.
Say for instance that you’re a biologist. Maybe you tell most people that your work is tedious and that it’s nothing special. Don’t bring the same attitude to a Danish girl you want to date. Instead, tell her that your research has the potential to further human knowledge or possibly benefit someone.
Your good deeds will leave her with a favorable impression of you. It will also help you a lot more than any physical object can.
Ultimately, Be Straightforward
We mentioned at the beginning of this article that Danish women are fond of being direct. Danes, in general, don’t like to overcomplicate or waste precious time. So you need to be just as blunt as they are.
We aren’t saying that you should be mean and uncaring. What we mean is that you should never be ambiguous. Just think about what you want to say and say it as simply as possible.
It would be best if you also tried not to use too many flattering phrases either. As we already explained, pick up lines won’t work on a Danish girl.
Held og lykke! (Good Luck)
In the end, dating a Danish girl will require you to become part of her circle. Then you’ll really get close if you show her that you are a person with substance. Having a caring and sober personality is going to be worth more than gold to her. Finally, just be upfront and say what you really mean and don’t avoid the issue.
