If you like each other, you'll probably find a way to make it work, regardless of any cultural variations.
But knowing some of the cultural differences – who makes the first move, kissing on a first date, how soon to call after a date – may help you avoid awkward situations, or at least stop you from getting hurt or hurting someone else unintentionally.
The Shallow Man has even started a counselling group called ‘Dutch women survivors’ for expat men who have been shot down in flames when attempting to approach Dutch women.
These are all childs play when compared with finding and keeping a Dutch woman.Both are known for naughty nightlife (but Prague more so), and both have Thai Massage houses everywhere you look (which I never quite understood). If you’re a beer drinker you’ll love Prague (tip: go to the Strahov Monastery Brewery for home made beer).Budapest is known for wine and you’ll find wine bars everywhere (Da Vino is a great wine bar). One thing though – you’ll always find Czech beer in Budapest bars. Both cities have equal amounts of beauty, but Prague’s beauty is more concentrated. In Prague everything from the Old Town and Lesser Town, all the way up to the Castle District, is gorgeous. But step outside the Old Town into the newer town and you’ll see the unattractive buildings that mark every city.To gather real accounts of the European dating scene, last year we asked around 500 (mostly, but not exclusively, heterosexual) expats living in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, and Switzerland a series of up-close and personal questions about themselves, their relationships and their sex lives.Of course, every relationship is different and how yours develops will depend on who you both are and the chemistry between you.
