Norwegian men dating black women
While Norwegians speak exceptional English, it is still wise to learn a bit of their language if you’re looking to move or travel there.
They will likely switch over to English once realizing you’re not fluent in Norwegian, but they will definitely appreciate the effort. they genuinely love speaking it and are happy to converse with you if they make that switch. But after living in the United States and later moving to the complainer capital of the world, Germany, I can officially confirm that Norwegians just don’t really complain.
Below I dish on what I learned about Norwegian people from my four years of living in Norway.
Some good, some bad, and some just random observations that stuck with me throughout the years.

After moving from Norway to other countries in Europe and Asia, I realized that Norwegians are actually some of the coolest people and most relatable people on the planet.
I arrived at a time where everyone wore EXACTLY THE SAME THING.I think the people just complain when it is absolutely vital and keep their mouths shut when it is not.I walk down the street in Germany and I have multiple people yelling at me telling me I won’t pick up my dog’s poop if he goes despite having a bag in my hand. In fact, for years I thought Norwegians were dull and just couldn’t crack a joke. I had a blog and I’m really outgoing, so I was already at an advantage over others.Named the “Happiest Country” in the world in 2017, Norway has a female prime minister and commitment to gender parity.
The 2017 World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap ranked Norway the second best country for women when it comes to economics, the workplace, education, politics and health while the US was ranked 49th. In Norway, everyone gets free healthcare, including contraception, maternal and child care and access to abortion services. Norwegians also spend a lot of money helping developing countries improve their reproductive health – a lot more of their GDP than the US does.
Because they stick to the same area, even though they will state they moved ‘far away’ with that distance of 45 miles in between their new home and their parents’ home, they keep the same friends a lot of times. But, alcohol in Norway is expensive, adding to its appeal. I have never seen the levels of intoxication on the streets that I witnessed living in Norway.
