Italians vs Norwegians giving compliments

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway"

Italians are experts in the art of seduction. They have a unique way to charm by their use of words and the way they express emotions. The world has always been charmed by Italy and Italians. 


Frenchmen are not too bad either

But Norwegian men are a little more subtle

“Not only did I notice you have eyes, but I noticed they were blue”

They are telling a woman that they noticed her

Which is a big thing in Norway

Norwegians men know that if they would behave like the French or the Italians

They would risk never see that Norwegian girl again!

Norwegian women are not used to receiving direct compliments

Keep that in mind

They could appreciate it

Or not

Do not overdo it

You may easily scare a Norwegian
