Then, you need to be kind of the same as everybody else but a bit different. I also like going to cafes.” Oh wow, just like the rest of the 500.000 people living in this city.
Also, roughly 99% of the people online write that they love going to “gå på tur”, “gå på ski” and “på hyttetur” (hiking, skiing and going on cabin trips).
And get off your screen damn it, and go meet someone in real life.
If Norwegians were really that outdoorsy they wouldn’t need to sit on their bum in front of a computer to meet someone.

Conclusion: I had nothing to sell on the Norwegian market of love. I was wrong, because having a vagina opens a lot of doors in the online dating of many countries of this world, including in Norway. Or this other guy who spent all his time customizing his car and doing bodybuilding, and who wrote to me “We have nothing in common but opposites attract right ;-)”.
You would think young hip urban men would be easier to connect to…but some get very specific, looking for a life companion, or should I say, a female person to appear on the pictures of the perfect family life they have imagined for themselves. So if you’re not in I don’t want to waste my time”.
I thought, naively, that online dating is like seduction. First of all seduction in Norway is not simple at all for foreigners (see on this topic a previous blogpost: The Norwegian “Art” of Seduction). I would say it follows rules which are even more obscure than regular flirting in a bar, all in a language that I didn’t understand. The first thing you need to know about Norwegian online dating is that there are passions you absolutely need to have if you want men/women to be interested in you.
It is about seeing if there is attraction in a simple way (HA! Because in a bar you can get away with speaking English, not on where everything is in Norwegian, including the dozens of preliminary questions everyone needs to answer to activate their profile. First, you need to love something called “friluftsliv”. To illustrate your love of being outdoors, you absolutely need one or several pictures of you in a magnificent, natural and wild landscape.
