We may not have good words for ‘dating’ but we certainly have a great word for that spouse-without-a-wedding-ring we have back home: “samboer.” Which means “together-liver.” And yes, that word works better in Scandinavian.
🙂 If you live with someone in Scandinavia, and especially if you have kids, you are as good as any married couple would be in your country.
As well as the bigger mainstream online dating sites (such as Zoosk and e Harmony), there are other options for polish people to find dates and possible relationships in the UK, Ireland or inside the US, many website creators have launched websites specifically aimed at English ex pats in Poland, or, closer to what we are looking for, Polish people in an English speaking environment.
The benefit of these sites, is that they are specifically tailored to the needs of your average ex pat away from home, there are multiple options for your search, such as ex pat dating, friend search (helps you look for someone nearby who you can be friends, and only friends with), single nights or a full blown adult relationship.
So I might have gotten the dating “rules” of your country (which might *not* be USA and therefore not part of those American movie rules) entirely wrong and am thus making a big thing out of nothing.
Dating rules So to make it clear what I’m talking about: As far as I understand it, dating in so many non-Scandinavian countries may consist of a man asking a woman he doesn’t know very well to go out to dinner and/or a movie with him, his picking her up and dropping her off afterwards and his paying the bills and making the decisions, and the first date ends with a kiss at the most? If so, buckle up and see how we non-date in Scandinavia.
The Brown rat (Rattus norvegicus), also referred to as the common rat, street rat, sewer rat, Hanover rat, Norway rat, Norwegian rat, or wharf rat is one of the best known and most common rats.
I have been contacted by more than one person wanting to date Scandinavian people or even marry one of us. Marrying a Scandinavian Let me answer the last question first: Yes, many of us choose not to get married but that doesn’t mean that we don’t live together or have children in well-established partnerships.
And how do we procreate if we don’t date and don’t marry?
"Now there is a mystery about the native country of the best known species of rat, the common brown rat.
It is frequently called, in books and otherwise, the 'Norway rat', and it is said to have been imported into this country in a ship-load of timber from Norway.
