No, all Scandinavians aren’t cold - they’re flirtatious, fun and happy to date. And Norwegian dating sites prove it. With Norwegian online dating kicking into full gear it shows Norwegians are up for fun. It also opens doors as suddenly you can meet people outside your own town and if you live in a small town in Norway, which can be a big bonus. You don’t necessarily want to date people you’ve know your whole life. What’s more, Norwegian dating websites are places where you find singles in the thousands. At your local bar you will be happy to find twenty. It simply ups your odds of finding someone to flirt with, or date.
Meeting people online is slightly different from meeting people in real life, yet very similar. Imagine you are at a bar; you walk around to see who is there. Some people catch your eye and you say hi to them. Others you don’t feel compelled to speak to. After exchanging a few words with some you get swept up in a discussion, only to find yourself having not very much in common with them after all, or getting butterflies as they have something you really like. Online you browse profiles, some profiles don’t make you look twice, others will catch your eye and you message them. Once you start messaging someone, maybe chatting with them too, some will turn out to be fun to flirt with, others won’t. And once you meet up with someone, you will find out if you enjoy their company in real life too. The great thing with Norwegian dating sites is that there are so many more people than at a bar. You might have to talk to quite a few people to hit it off with someone, but your chances of doing so are so much higher.
There are some tips and tricks as to creating a great profile for a Norwegian dating site. First of all, bear in mind what fellow Norwegian singles are looking for. What would you love to see in a profile? You want to find someone fun, interesting and flirtatious, don’t you? So let that come across in your own profile. Secondly, remember to share enough information to get someone interested in finding out more. Write something engaging about yourself and if you can’t do it have a friend (or a couple of friends) write it for you. Thirdly, add some great profile pictures. People want to get a feel for who you are and photos speak as loud as words. Avoid a bunch of boring selfies, nude shots and too many shots of your cat/dog/car - it’s you people want to see. Lastly, make sure that what you enjoy in life comes through. People love those who show they have passion for what they do in life.
So you want to strike up a conversation with some fellow Norwegian singles. What to say and what not to say? “Hey, you’re cute, wanna chat?” is not a great message. It’s impersonal and boring. Hey, Your profile really got my attention. You sound interesting - I like you’ve traveled so much. What’s your favourite country so far? I love France…the wine you know ;) And a few other things, of course. You totally rock that photo with the car by the way! Would love to hear from you some time ;) This shows you read their profile, you paid attention and you’re being flirtatious without going overboard. As with anything flirting works best if you start slow and work your way to something more steamy. It builds curiosity and tension. If you give it all in a first message, people will back off. Keep it short, but personal, flirt a little bit and if you want to - add some humour. That’s really the best practice when approaching someone on a Norwegian dating website.
