While Frenchmen and italians are experts in the art of seduction
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 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
Do not overdo it
You may easily scare a Norwegian
"Be sincere in your praise and subtle in your compliments" - Julien S. Bourrelle
That also applies to feedback at work.
