But much like other reported miracles, such as Christ walking on water or an American president delivering a speech he wrote himself, it’s something I’ve never seen with my own eyes.For one thing, Danish people seem to think that talking to strangers is uncouth.Now you can go stand there and geolocate your way to love (or fun, whatever you’re looking for)! Although I won’t encourage you to visit the airport socially (that’s just sad), if you happen (haha!

This means a lot if you’re a foreign woman dating a Danish man. They don’t want some clown opening the door for them, or helping them carry packages. My Danish male friends say that after offering to be chivalrous a couple of times and getting turned down in a nasty manner, they don’t want to do that any more. ”He’s really happy when I call him, but he never calls me”.
