Dating in nice

When I started writing this blog I googled to see the questions which have been left unanswered and I noticed that this one came up a lot.

First let me say, Icelanders are in general not racist. I can at least speak for me and my friends when I say that race is not an issue when it comes to dating.

It’s huge in the dating game a must for anyone who wants to join the Icelandic dating game.

It’s more the issue of language and length of stay. Icelandic is so easy 😉 More on Icelandic words: Icelandic words that are missing in English. Most of us love meeting people and we usually settle down around 30 not 20.

The divorce rate is high and our families are mixed.

There are a couple of ongoing myths about the dating life here in Iceland. Being such a small country we have a very good system that helps to keep track of who is related and who isn’t.

One is that we are constantly dating our relatives, another that we actually never go on dates and another one that sex is such a normal thing everyone is doing it all the time with everyone. The reason this myth has blossomed is, I think, because we have these amazing records dating back over a thousand years so if me and this guy I am seeing share the same great, great, great, great, great grandmother, we are going to know.

This shallow weird little game has captured all the single people here in Iceland.

Some who have said they would never play, well, they always end up there one way or another.Me (Ragnheiður) for example now looked up (Daði) my co-worker and we are related in the 7th link.So this means that our great, great, great, great grandmothers were sisters.Not so related but because we can look it up it might seem like it! Icelanders are not much into the whole “can I take you out for a first date“ in the formal matter of sitting down at a nice restaurant.Most of my friends say that this is just too much pressure.It’s more about not being able to speak in Icelandic and if the person is staying in Iceland or just over here for 3 days or so.
