My Danish friends who are about to spend some time in the U. First, in the U. That Highway Patrol lady with the mirrored sunglasses who has just caught you speeding down Route 66 is unlikely to have much of a sense of humor. The second tip is that, should you go to a bar, it can happen that a stranger or two will offer to buy you a drink. If the stranger is of the opposite gender, or same gender depending on the bar, that person is interested in you.
Let them buy you a drink. And chat with them while you drink it. Buying a drink for someone is a big deal in Denmark, a place where a loving couple who go out for a romantic candlelight dinner often split the bill. For Danes, buying someone a drink is like buying them a birthday present. Many Danes are not comfortable with a stranger making that level of commitment. The journalist chose to focus on love and romance in Denmark. Here are a few translated excerpts:. Having lived in Denmark for 15 years, Mellish has noticed that there are special rules for love here.
No one knows who should take the initiative. Instead, Mellish has found, romance is facilitated with large amounts of alcohol consumed in the evenings.

Basically, a lot of the mail I get is from men, wanting to know how they can get some action in Denmark.
I can understand this. Danes are very beautiful. And I can tell you now, most of them will not immediately reject you because you have a different skin color. I know of several babies of mixed heritage here in Denmark. I saw a movie this week. It was the latest in long-running series called Father of Four. The series has been running since the Fifties. As the kids grow up, they just replace them with new actors. Anyway, in this episode, there was a romance. What struck me watching the movie was that the male romantic lead was visibly shorter than the female lead. In the Danish film, there was no attempt to hide it.
They had them walk side by side through a meadow. I kept thinking. Last time I went through Kastrup airport, there was a poster version in the customs area. The postcard has been around since the s, and it has several small cartoons, illustrating each nationality within the s EU, and making a sarcastic remark about what it does best. It says: The Perfect European is as humorous as a German.
The Perfect European drives like the French. The Perfect European is as humble as a Spaniard, as organized as a Greek, as calm as an Italian, and serves traditional British food. And, according to the postcard, The Perfect European is as discreet as a Dane. A little cartoon in the lower-right-hand corner shows a blond Danish man opening his coat to show off pictures of naked ladies.
Denmark was the first country in the world to legalize pornography, in This essay is from a series I wrote shortly after I arrived in Denmark. The line drawings are my own. In a land with few limits, Americans draw a firm line between work and sex, based on the rather prissy notion that no one should have to put up with sexual come-ons or even sexual talk in order to keep a job, and that anyone who does should be compensated with a hefty legal settlement.
All I can think about at a Danish Christmas party is how much an American lawyer could earn off the proceedings. One stalk of corporate mistletoe, I am sure, would generate more than enough business for him to redecorate his office with the high-priced furniture at Illums Bolighus and his wife with silver from George Jensen.
This essay is from a series I wrote in co-operation with the Danish tabloid BT in , shortly after I arrived in Denmark. Here we were, foreigners, and we were clearly not getting our cut of the criminal millions being made on the streets of Copenhagen. All we did was go to work every day and pay Danish taxes. We figured we had better get started. After considering a variety of profitable crimes, we decided on a male prostitution ring, with the idea that our workers could do internal projects on slow nights.
But our male escorts would not provide sex: that was too easy to get in Denmark. Instead, they would offer romance. On my very first night in Copenhagen, I went with an American girlfriend to a downtown discotheque. We sat at a table roughly the size of a pizza. Three men sat across from us, a distance of approximately 25 centimeters. For an hour. Without saying anything. I think Zulus or spacemen would have found some way to communicate with us, but this was apparently beyond the capability of three well-educated Danes. Finally, fortified by gin and tonics, we spoke to them first, and they turned out to be nice guys.
But that was a lucky night: Since moving here, I have been to many a discoteque where women shake their booty with their girfriends for hours while men watch with pretend disinterest from the sidelines, their eyes radiating invisible beams of desire: Please, miss, ask me to dance. When I first came to Denmark, people kept asking me what I thought about Danish men. It seemed like a weird question. I soon learned their interest in Danish men was a variation on the famous German saying: Man spricht uber das, was man nicht hat.
There are NOT a lot of men in Denmark, although there is quite a bounty of tall, timid boys. While the culture of egalitarianism has done some great things for Denmark — where else will you see tattooed musclemen pushing baby carriages? Danish men seem too timid to do anything that makes men men, such as taking risks, taking initiative, or enjoying the pure thrill of the chase.
