Dutch women find Dutch guys dull, so as a foreigner you might stand a good chance to start dating one of these tall, independent women. Though you have to careful, because like their male counterparts, Dutch women just as easily bond with a man without ever becoming his lover.

Relations between men and women in The Netherlands are just as flat and equal as the landscape is.

What can you expect from a Dutch woman? Well, according to surveys found on the web:

Arie Boomsma: most sexy man of The Netherlands

Dutch women are happy

  • Dutch women are very happy, whether they are alone or in a relationship. Dutch women rate their happiness in life with a 7,5. According to a researcher, Dutch women don’t get depressed.
  • 13% of Dutch women smoke.
  • Half of Dutch women has been in love with another man while in a relationship. 27% of Dutch women has cheated on their partner (in Italy this is 45%!).
  • On average, Dutch girls have sex for the first time when they are 16 years old.
  • Though only 45% of the Dutch women are (mildly) obese, some 70% find themselves too fat. 23% is so insecure, they’ll only have sex with the lights off. 43% is unsure about their good looks. In other countries this is 64%.
  • More than elsewhere, Dutch women think that ‘feeling beautiful’ has to do with what you have accomplished in life, whether you are doing what your really enjoy. In other countries, especially less developed countries, ‘to be loved’ and financial and business success is more important.
  • Dutch women like their men to be kind, sensitive and least of all macho.
  • Chosen as ‘most sexy man of The Netherlands’ is Marco Borsato, a Dutch-Italian singer and tv host and famous ‘Christian’ Arie Boomsma.
  • Though plastic surgery is not very common in Holland, many women (33%) would change something about their bodies if they could.

Amsterdam: where the most beautiful women live

Ask  a man who has visited several countries where he would to return to and you can be sure he picks the places where he saw the most beautiful women.

A web survey made a list of the cities with the most beautiful women, based on the quality of women, the ratio women/men and approachability.

On number 10, we find: Amsterdam Holland. “Indeed, the dream of many men: seeing tall blond beautiful women riding bicycles and behaving friendly. No need for the Red Quarter.”

  • The amount of women (and men!) in The Netherlands working part-time is higher than anywhere else in the world. Some 60% of Dutch women aged 25-54 work part-time. This percentage is 19% in the USA, 22% in France, 38% in Germany and 37% in Ireland (2009, OECD statistics).
  • Dutch women like working part-time, especially after having had their first child. Still, they have a busy life working, taking care of the kids, cleaning the house, shopping for groceries, cooking, catching up with friends, doing sports and hobbies. When they work, they work for ‘fun’ and not for the money. Full-time work is not a financial necessity when they have a second income from the partner.
  • Dutch women are tall. The average length is 1.70 m. Average clothes size of Dutch women is 42 and they weigh 80 kilos. Around 50% of Dutch women have cup size D.
  • 70% of Dutch women like to experiment in bed.
  • Dutch women cheat, but with morals. It’s ‘not done’ to cheat with the partner of a friend nor to sleep with your partner’s best friend or brother. A colleague at work, parent of your kids’ friends or the neighbour seems to be less problematic.
  • One in 3 marriages in The Netherlands ends in divorce.

    Yeah I am just back I could not agree more. Dutch women are unbelievable. Some of the best looking women in the world.

  2. Dutch Women go to office whithout make up in jeans and knitted sweaters, also in local politics were the men are in suits you see women whit absolute no dress sense at all! They are representing voters in jeans and jumpers. They have in general rough attitudes and are very unfriendly and afraid of things out of the box, they make me sad.

    Following my visit to Holland, I truly can’t agree more about the beauty of the Dutch women.

    THIS ARTICLE IS IN SOMEWAYS TRUE AND SOMEWAYS UNTRUE .. ( BY THE WAY I AM A DUTCH GIRL )

    1. DUTCH GIRLS FIND DUTCH MEN DULL.. THE NETHERLANDS HAS 4,2 COUPLES ( 3,3 MILION MARRIED AND 800.000 LIVING TOGETHER
    OF THOSE ONLY 265.000 IS A DUTCH PERSON WITH A NON DUTCH PERSON.. AND IN 40% OF THOSE 265.00.. YOU HAVE A DUTCH WOMEN WITH A NON DUTCH MEN ( 60% DUTCH MEN NON DUTCH WOMEN ) WHICH MEANS THAT BY FAR THE MAJORITY IS WITH A DUTCH PERSON.. ALMOST EVERYONE I KNOW IS DATING OR MARRIED WITH A DUTCH PERSON.. AND WHY NOT, THEY SPEAK OUR LANGUAGE, NO CULTURE DIFFERENCES, TRAVELING COSTS TIME,MONEY ( LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP ), NO RELIGION PROBLEMS, NO PARENTS THAT ARE MAYBE NOT OKE WITH YOUR RELATIONSHIP, NO WE DON’T FIND DUTCH MEN DULL.. OTHERWISE WE WOULD NOT MARRY ORE DATE THEM IN SUCH HIGH NUMBERS…..

    Dutch women just as easily bond with a man without ever becoming his lover.
    IF YOU WANNE DATE DUTCH GIRLS DO IT LIKE THIS: MEET HER IN UNIVERSITY ORE GET DUTCH MALE FRIENDS.. EVERYONE COUPLE I KNOW DID MEET EACH OTHER THAT WAY.. SCHOOL ORE FRIENDS ORE MAYE SPORT.. IT’S VERY VERY UNCOMMON TO MEET YOU FUTURE HUSBAND/WIFE AT THE BAR.. MOST PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR SOME TIME A FEW MONTHS ORE MAYBE A YEAR AND THAN START AN RELATIONSHIP

    http://www.nu.nl/vrouw/2805510/nederlandse-vrouwen-willen-trouwen-en-babys-krijgen.html
    96% OF DUTCH WOMEN WANT AN MONOGAAME RELATIONSHIP.. MORE THAN 80% OF WOMEN WANT TO GET MARRIED.. AND 70% WANTS TO GET CHILDREN. AND 18% IS NOT SURE YET. AND 12% DOES NOT WANT CHILDREN..
    90% FIND EMOTIONAL SUPORT MOST IMPORTANT. THAN PASION 70% AND ROMANCE 69%
    40% WANT AN OLDER MEN AND 1/3 DOES NOT SEES A PROBLEM WITH BEING FINANCIAL DEPENDING ON YOUR HUSBAND..
    SINGLE WOMEN ABOUT 34% IS OKE WITH BEING SINGLE.. BUT 66% WANT A RELATIONSHIP..

    DUTCH WOMEN DO GET DEPRESSED BUT YOUR RIGHT WHEN YOU LOOK UP MOST HAPPIEST COUNTRIES THE NETHERLANDS TOGETHER WITH THE SCANDINAVIANS IS ALWAYS FOR HIGH LISTED

    THE SIGARET QUESTION IS A BIT DIFFICULT TO ANSWER.. I COULD NOT FIND ANY ARTICLES ON IT.. BUT I DO THINK THAT IS ABOUT GOOD.. MOST DUTCH PEOPLE HAVE A VERY HEALTHY LIFESTYLE..

    AND THE CHEATING I THINK IT’S A BIT LOWER.. HOWEVER I CAN NOT PROVE IT..

    THE AVERAGE AGE FOR FIRST TIME SEX FOR DUTCH GIRLS IS 16,7 AND DUTCH GUYS 16,8
    http://www.gemiddeldgezien.nl/meer-gemiddelden/99-gemiddelde-leeftijd-eerste-keer

    YOUR WEIGHT STATISTICS ARE ABOUT RIGHT MANY DUTCH WOMEN FIND THEM SELF FAT.. WHILE MOST ARE NOT THAT FAT COMPARED TO OTHER COUNTRIES I WENT TOO
    http://www.noo.org.uk/NOO_about_obesity/adult_obesity/international
    http://images.businessweek.com/bloomberg/pdfs/WORLDS_HEALTHIEST_COUNTRIES.pdf

    IT’S MORE THE LIFESTYLE WE HAVE THAN ANYTHING ELLS. FAST FOOD IS HERE NOT SO POPULAR.. WE EAT MORE CALCIUM ( IT’S IN CHEESE IN MILK ) THAN MOST OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD. IT MAKES YOUR BONES GROW AVERAGE DUTCH WOMEN IS 1,70 CM.

    WE LOVE CYCLING MORE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THE AVERAGE DUTCH PERSON MAKES Gemiddeld maakt een Nederlander ieder jaar 300 fietsritten goed voor ruim 900 kilometer: WHICH MEANS THE AVERAGE DUTCH PERSON MAKES 300 BICYCLE RIDES A YEAR ALL TOGETHER ABOUT 900 KILOMETER, AND EVERYDAY WE MAKE ABOUT 14 MILION BICYCLE RIDES..

    AND COMPARED TO OUR ” BIG BROTHER IN THE EAST” GERMANY WHEN WE EAT WE EAT NOT THAT MUCH SO I THINK THAT ALSO HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT.. GERMANS REALLY EAT BIG PLATES OF FOOD.. WHEN I AM THERE I USALLY EAT ABOUT HALF OF WHAT THEY GIVE MY ON MY PLATE..

    Dutch women think that ‘feeling beautiful’ has to do with what you have accomplished in life, whether you are doing what your really enjoy… THIS IS A BIT TRUE BUT IT’S ALSO BECAUSE OF DUTCH MEN.. THEY DON’ REALLY LIKE TO SPEND MONEY LINES AS 1. DAT IS VEEL TE DUUR ( THAT IS WAY TO EXPENSIVE ORE 2. WAT KOST DAT? ( HOW MUCH IS THAT ) ARE VERY COMON HERE.. A RESEARCH SHOWED THAT http://www.parship.nl/advies/nieuw-bij-parship/europese-singles-op-een-rij.htm ITS ABOUT 66,-THEY SPEND ON THERE DATES A YEAR THE LOWEST OF WHOLE EUROPE, I ALSO HEARD ON TV THAT ON VALENTINE THEY SPEND THE LOWEST AMOUNT OF MONEY IN WHOLE EUROPE ON THERE PARTNERS.. THEY ALSO SAY IN THE ARTICLE THAT THE DUTCH AND THE DANSIH ARE THE HAPPIEST SINGLES IN EUROPE..

    MACHO.. NO NO NO NO NO.. REALLY MOST DUTCH GIRLS LIKE MEN WHO ARE DOWN TO EARTH AND FUNNY.. MACHO TYPE OF MEN REALLY DON’T STAND A CHANGE JUST BE YOURSELF. WE LIKE YOU WAY MORE BECAUSE OF THAT.. I CAN NOT SHOW YOU ANYTHING.. AND THERE MILLIONS OF DUTCH WOMEN LIVING HERE.. SO THESE STEREOTYPES ARE ALWAYS BAD.. BUT LOOK LIKE IT THIS WAY.. THE MAJORITY OF DUTCH GIRLS MARY DATE DUTCH MEN.. DUTCH MEN ON AVERAGE ARE NOT REALLY MACHO’S SO WHAT DO DUTCH WOMEN WANT THEN???????.. BEING KIND IS GOOD AND SENSITIVE I GUESS A BIT NOT TO MUCH OF COURSE.. THE CLOSER YOU ARE TO A DUTCH MEN THE BETTER.. CAUSE AFTER DUTCH MEN WE MARRY MOST GERMAN MEN AND ALSO BRITISH AN BELGIUMS ARE HIGH ON THE LIST WHEN IT COMES TO DATING AND MARRIAGE HERE..

    MARCO BORSATO I NEVER NEVER NEVER HEARD ANYONE SAY HE IS HANDSOME HE IS SOME 50 YEAR OLD SINGER.. NO NO NO.. LOL.. AND BTW MANY PEOPLE SAY THAT ARIE BOOMSMA IS GAY, DON’T KNOW IF HE IS.. THIS IS WHAT DUTCH WOMEN FIND ATTRACTIVE
    http://www.girlscene.nl/p/9726/de_knapste_nederlandse_mannen

    PLASTIC SURGERY DON’T KNOW.. I DON’T KNOW ANYONE THAT HAD PLASTIC SURGERY. EXCEPT A FEW GIRLS WHO HAD THERE BREASTS SMALLER http://mens-en-gezondheid.infonu.nl/diversen/67615-gezondheid-borsten.html
    DUTCH WOMEN HAVE AFTER THE BRITISH AND DANISH THE BIGGEST BREASTS IN EUROPE.. I AM NOT GOING TO WRITE THE BREAST SIZES BECAUSE THEY ARE DIFFERENT BY COUNTRY.

    TRUE WE WORK PART TIME A LOT.. BUT THIS IS ALSO BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT CHILD DAY CARE IS REALLY EXPENSIVE HERE SO MOST DUTCH WOMEN DON’T REALLY EARN THAT MUCH MONEY MORE A MONTH BY STAYING AT HOME ORE WORKING BECAUSE MOST OF IT GOES TO THE DAY CARE, AND IT’S ALSO SEEN AS SOMETHING BAD ON AVERAGE IN DUTCH CULTURE IF THE MOTHER IS NOT AT HOME WHEN THE CHILDREN COME HOME FROM SCHOOL.. HOWEVER MOST DUTCH COUPLES HAVE TO WORK TO MAKE .A LIVING THAT WE DO FUN WORKING.. SO NO… WE ARE NOT THAT RICH

    1,70 CM HEIGHT IS GOOD CAN’T FIND ANYTHING ABOUT AVERAGE WEIGHT AND CUP SIZE DEPENS ON THE SITE SOME SAY 36% HAS AN D CUP OTHER SITES SAY IT’S ABOUT 56% HAS A D CUP. BUT I THINK 50% IS ABOUT RIGHT..AND AGAIN THIS IS DIFFERENT FOR EVERY COUNTRY D CUP IN THE NETHERLANDS IS DIFFERENT THAN IN FRANCE FOR EXAMPLE..

    70% of Dutch women like to experiment in bed
    DON’T KNOW MAYBE

    DUTCH WOMEN CHEAT, BUT WITH MORALS?????.. OF COURSE SOME CHEAT LIKE IN EVERY OTHER COUNTRY.. BUT CHEATING IS NEVER GOOD HERE.. HOW CAN SOMEONE CHEAT WITH MORALS THATS’ A BIT STUPID DON’T YOU THINK??

    YOUR RIGHT ABOUT THE DIVORCE RATES.. I THINK IT’S WAY TO HIGH BUT STILL LOWER THAN MANY OTHER COUNTRIES
    THE USA IS WAY HIGHER WHEN IT COMES TO DIVORCING THAN THE NETHERLANDS

    BUT WE ARE VERY HAPPY IN OUR MARRIAGES http://www.acop.com/press/2010/10/married_couples/

    @ JOURNEY 2
    ACTUALLY ONLY 1 OUT OF 5 GOES NOT OUTSIDE WITHOUT MAKE-UP, WE DO HOWEVER KEEP IT VERY NATURAL JUST A BIT MASCARA, FOUNDATION, ROUGE, LIPSTICK.. WHEN I WAS IN MOSCOW I REALLY SAW GIRLS WITH 3 COLORS EYE SHADOW AND FAKE LASHES, I DID NOT LIKE IT.. WE WEAR MAKE UP BUT VERY NATURAL.. AND MANY GIRLS WEAR SKIRTS AND DRESSES IN SUMMER AND ALSO IN WINTER WE TRY TO LOOK FEMINE HOWEVER THIS COUNTRY IS QUITE IN THE NORTH. SO UNLIKE ITALIANS ORE SPANISH WE CAN’T WEAR DRESSES AND AND SKIRTS EVERYDAY IT’S JUST TOO COLD.. SOME DUTCH PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY SOME ARE NOT.. BUT I THINK WERE NOT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES..
    http://www.nu.nl/lifestyle/3392848/meeste-vrouwen-niet-zonder-make-up-deur-uit.html

    SOME OTHER STATISTICS I HEARD ON TV
    ABOUT 70% HAS LIGHT COLORED EYES ( BLUE,GREEN, GREY ) AND 30% DARK EYES.. HOWEVER MOST DUTCH PEOPLE HAVE BLUE EYES
    ABOUT 60% IS BLONDE AND 40% HAS DARK HAIR USUSALLY BROWN BLACK HAIR IS VERY UNCOMMON HERE..

    ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT ATTITUDE DEPENDS ON REGION PEOPLE FROM AMSTERDAM ARE WAY DIFFERET THAN PPL FROM LIMBURG ORE FRIESLAND..

    THE WESTERN PART ( RANDSTAD: ROTTERDAM, AMSTERDAM, DEN HAAG )IS A BIT MORE LIBERAL, MORE DIRECT MORE OPEN ABOUT SEX..
    PPL FROM THE SOUTH ARE A BIT SHY and quite, MORE bourgondisch
    THE NORTH IS VERY DOWN TO EARTH ( FRIESLAND+GRONINGEN )
