Mmmh can I give you my answer after dessert or will I have wasted too much of your time already? I think I preferred the guy with his pink tutu-dog asking me out. Others make you feel like you’re in a job interview.

It seems like they have a check list where you gain or lose points each time you open your mouth. If you are not sweet, sporty and confident you might not get called for the second round. Got too tired of the mind games with men who date 5 girls at the same time and know all the tricks in the book.

And get off your screen damn it, and go meet someone in real life.

And if you can’t pee in the bush with class and dignity, you’re OUT! I survived 5 weeks on the website and figured going out was a more fun and less time consuming way to meet people. Yes one actually, but he will probably ignore me after reading this (Per Christian, if you’re out there…).

So, in light of this very lousy experience, my advice to everyone is, as Oscar Wilde said, “be yourself, everyone else is taken”.

All of these are true, either experienced by me or some of my female friends. Hey, no one said it was illegal to have a little imagination 🙂 You can try to guess which ones I made up though, a good test to know whether you know Norwegian society well, or whether you know me well.

I mean drunk enough not to remember what we are about to do? If you know any girl from Fiji, North Korea or Romania let me know, I am interested!

It can show you swimming in a majestic fjord or standing on top of a mountain showing that you had to hike a pretty steep way to get there. You thought it would be enough to like being outside having a nice little walk. You need to like extreme stuff like going to the gym every day. I don’t know whether it’s because of Janteloven and all that “you are not better than anyone else” education, but everyone writes the same things over and over again.

Don’t put pictures of you sweating in spinning class (unclassy) but do put a picture of you rafting down a crazy river in Thailand, or cycling up some road in South of France with a beautiful view of the sea behind you (nice tan is a must have here). I don’t think it’s because people are boring, just that they don’t want to seem to eccentric or too confident. So you end up with having to read this kind of sentence so many times your eyes hurt: “I like to stay at home, but sometimes I go out with friends.

The only time one actually tried to talk to me was at a club and he was drunk as a skunk...

My friend told me that they probably stare because i am colored, which made me feel pretty weird.

Optionally taking weektrips to some place in gokk with neither electricity nor hot water. It seems to me that all Norwegian girls have been raised to pee in the dark behind a hytte by -20 degrees with reindeers and polar bears watching, so I am sure it’s not a hard criteria to meet (for other foreign girls…maybe a bit different). I don’t have a cabin, don’t know how to ski, I had never entered a gym before moving to Norway because I am lazy, and I have (rectification: had) no pictures of me sitting on the top of a mountain, or rowing a boat in the Lofoten islands.
