Men and dating rules
Of course, similar to elsewhere, online dating in the Netherlands is increasingly becoming the norm as taboos are shed, particularly among older daters.
This has changed the Dutch dating game in some respects as ‘first dates‘ are moving to online dating platforms and social media.
How hard is it to send a text, “Hey, it was great to meet you and I did have a great time, but I think we’d be better as friends.” We all know what that means, but at least he’s let you go without you wondering whether you should send him text to check if he got the last one.
