I’m reading through the CNN travel report circa 2011 and wondering why the dutch don’t have a mention as one of the coolest nationalities in the world. Ditch the ill feelings towards the dutch guy who is rumoured to Go Dutch, when you are sitting at a table across from him, and slowly clearing your plate on a date. Forget about all those complaints and concerns on the cybersphere about dutch guys being uncool, unromantic and underdressed.I towered over a heck of alot of people and became pretty used to jabs about my height like, “How is the oxygen up there?” Or complaints about causing neck injuries each time I stooped to hug a friend.
This is an indication that large-scale family reunification of Polish immigrants is currently not taking place.4) They are egalitarian: I’ve had people I consider big.boss in a foundation, the medical specialist, the brainy professor or even the pastor, address me like they were my equal, eyeball to eyeball.I find myself thinking that back home in Kenya, unless he’s a relative or close friend, people with similar qualifications prefer to float on celestial clouds further up, at a high unreachable pedestal, with some assistants scurrying around to transmit messages to we “earthly mortals.” Your protests will likely be met with a booming rebuttal ‘Haiyaaa, si there’s a chain of command!’ 5)They are not finicky over food: Ask a dutch guy over for lunch and he will be perfectly fine with slices of bread served with cheese and ham followed by hot cups of coffee.Here, even with 12-inch heels, I’m still quite average among dutch guys.
It’s a comforting feeling being around them, and not feeling self-conscious sticking out over everyone.
He won’t mind you barking out orders or getting you a cup of tea.
