“So how did you meet your boyfriend,” one of the girls asked. If still in doubt, just try the same experiment conducted above on your Icelandic friends. Sure, people might first meet other places, but it still takes that trip to the bar for the next step to take place. “There is nothing to do here and besides, people talk.”There is indeed quite a lot to do in Reykjavík compared to towns of similar size, but still the options are limited compared to big cities, the weather is often harsh and things are pretty expensive. ” The cat is out of the bag by now and your first and perhaps only date suddenly feels more like an engagement ceremony.
And the meeting there will almost always be coincidental. Much better then to wait until the lights go out, everyone you know has gone home, is too drunk to care or engaged in their own business.
People Talk Rather than asking if or how, it’s much more interesting to wonder why this is so. In other words, going out, getting hammered and then heading home with whoever happens to be standing next to you at closing time carries much less social penalty than meeting in broad daylight.
Perhaps a comparison will shed some light: In the film ‘Of Snails and Men,’ recently shown at Bíó Paradís, a Frenchman comes to a small Romanian town and asks a local girl out on a date. It is widely understood that what happens at the bar doesn’t really count.
Leave it until the morning after to figure out if you two really have something in common and if the same thing happens again next weekend with the same person, you have yourself a relationship.
Groningen is ook goed geschikt om samen naar het theater te gaan of om een concert bij te wonen.
