I was single for 6 years after I came to Denmark, before I married.The singles' life is different than I experienced in the US. Most of my friends - girls and guys who were friends with them - I met while I was dating.An Expat Discusses Living in Copenhagen , Denmark An expat living in Copenhagen offers an incredible glimpse of what it's to live there.Although Denmark is very homogeneous, Danish people are open to other cultures.Now, why not broaden the coverage, aimed at your single readership away from dating.
First of all, marriage is not that popular here and relationships fail at a pretty high rate, anyway, so there are relatively many more single mothers here than in the US.
Guessing that there are lotsa folk out here who are not looking to partner, or who have been there and done that, and mostly want to explore what else life offers.
As an African-American I assumed most of my culture shock would be centered on being black in a nearly homogenous, white country. That’s not to say I don’t see couples spending time together in public places, but the formal structured dating seems non-existent.
The few that had, admitted they just began to engage in formal dates over the past couple of years.
Instead of having “formal arrangements with strangers” as one of my floor-mates described, they often just hang out with one another, grab a bite to eat, and get to know each other in a more personal and less formal manner.
