Flirting in Norway

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway"

Frenchmen are experts in the art of seduction


And so are Italians


Norwegian men are a little more pragmatic

Seducation means "forførelse"

Norwegian men want to express the same thing

But do it in a more subtle manner

“Not only did I notice you had eyes, but I noticed they were blue”

They are telling a woman that they noticed her

Which is a big thing in Norway

Norwegian women are not used to receiving direct compliments

Keep that in mind

They could appreciate it

Or not

Do not overdo it

You may easily scare a Norwegian
