In a real-life Cinderella story, a former topless model and reality star has become a princess after marrying Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip.
Dating someone is a lot of guess work, what did he or she mean when she said this or did that?
It’s true that the Swedes aren’t the world’s most outgoing people, but I do feel their reclusiveness has been… I remember my Swedish teacher telling our class of newly arrived immigrants that Swedes living in flats often look through the peephole in their front door before stepping out into the hallway.
This was out of fear of running into a neighbour and having to talk to them.
According to the Wikipedia entry, which unfortunately has been marked as full of weasel language, the definition is a bit nebulous. But well, if a guy brings a girl on a date, i think the guy should pay.
The phrase did probably originate in Holland because people pay for their own share when going out in groups. But on dates, or one-on-one events, the man usually pays for the meal (food and drinks). Going dutch depends on the guy, the girl, and the circumstances around the date.
