Dutch treat dating sites
Although I am happy to pay for dates or even outings with friends, I think it feels good to be treated and taken out.
And I imagine the other person feels the same way too.
Century the English marked the word “Dutch” as anything they did not like or considered unwholesome.
To name a few that survived to this day; “Dutch courage” (over indulging in alcohol to gain foolish confidence), “Dutch sale or Dutch Bargain” (a sale made at an unfairly low price after the goods were offered at a high price or a one-sided bargain), “Double Dutch” ( incomprehensible nonsense), “Dutch Alps”( small breasts) and my all time favourite and more in line with this article “The Dutch treat” ( to pay one’s own way or going 50/50 on a bill with someone ,be it your date or girlfriend.) I personally experienced the wonders of the “Dutch treat” on a date, on the evening of 31 Are most Dutch men unromantic? Take note that the following article is based on my personal experiences and talking to people.
Even if a supposedly romantic evening is going well it is not unheard of for both parties to share the bill.
Perhaps I am old-fashioned but I cannot see or feel any expression of love or affection in this scenario.
Perhaps it comes from past tradition of men being the provider in the home and ensuring your wife or wives lack for nothing.
One who built his woman a beautiful house, clothed her in the best clothes, adorned her with jewellery and fattened her up with rich foods (fat women were a depiction of a wealthy man) was the envy of the village.
Going Dutch: A Big Dud In one study of dating scripts, participants were asked to point out elements of a “good,” “bad,” and “typical” date (Alksnis, Desmarais, & Wood, 1996).
A Dutch guy I met at a barber shop once had this to say on the subject of a Dutch Treat and dating, “ If the date is going well I do not mind paying the entire bill. If it is not going well, I will make sure she pays half. I will not spend my money on a bad date.” What immediately came to my mind was that this man was a cheapskate and clearly lacks a romantic bone in him.
However, I later realized that this is not very strange in the Netherlands.
A man who can keep his woman or women happy was well respected.
This instills a sense of pride in the man and envy in other men.
