Dutch women

by Tanja

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. But be aware that relations between men and women in The Netherlands are just as flat and equal as the landscape is. Read about what Dutch girls are like and what they look for in a man.

1. Dutch girls are very happy

Dutch girls are very happy if you ask them. Whether they are alone or in a relationship, Dutch women rate their own happiness in life with a 7,5. According to a book, Dutch women don’t get depressed.

2. Dutch girls think they are fat

Happy they are in general, not so satisfied they are with their body. Though only 45% of the Dutch women are (mildly) obese, 70% think they are 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%.

3. Do Dutch girls like sex?

According to dating site Victoria Milan, Dutch girls like sex, but are not as sex-driven as the Scandinavian. The website published a Top Twenty Countries with Highest Sex Drives in Women, based on admissions from women who self-assessed their sex drive states. Swedish, Norwegian and Italian girls have a sex drive that is so high they could be considered to be nymphomaniacs.

Dutch girls reach place 17. “Dutch women are beautiful but serious, believing everything should be enjoyed in moderation – even wild sex”, so says the website.

4. Dutch women want a handyman

Are you handy but poor? No problem if you are dating a Dutch girl. Most Dutch women would rather have a man who is handy and fixes things around the house, than someone who has a lot of money. 88% of Dutch ladies think this is very important. Only 48% consider it a big deal if her man can’t cook.

5. The most beautiful women are from Amsterdam

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.

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.”

6. Dutch women cheat, but with morals

Half of the Dutch women have been in love with another man while in a relationship. 27% of Dutch women have cheated on their partner (in Italy this is 45%!).

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 neighbor seems to be less problematic.

7. Dutch women work parttime

A huge percentage (73%) of the women in The Netherlands work parttime. Only 23% of men in Holland work parttime. This percentage is 19% in the USA, 22% in France, 38% in Germany and 37% in Ireland (2009, OECD statistics). It means that in the Netherlands, most women are dependent of their men financially, but they don’t really care.

8. Dutch women are tall

Dutch women are tall. The average length of a Dutch woman is 170 cm. The average clothes size of Dutch women is 42 and they weigh 80 kilos. Around 50% of Dutch women have cup size D.

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

The Netherlands is full of beautiful women, but they are Moroccan, Turkish and Arabic. Dutch Women (like the “original” Dutchs) are ugly af.

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.

zapper August 21, 2014 - 23:41

To me they come across very uncouth, unrefined and unfeminine. As a foreigner I lived in Amsterdam and dated one for 3 years. She was petite, black hair, not the described stereotype.

Its an incredibly polarized society. So difficult to feel them, not literally.

Also voice is very important to me and lets be honest the Dutch accent is terrible

You don’t want a dutch girl as a pen pal.

sundi johnson February 26, 2015 - 13:30

Just got back from amsterdam and can safely say the women were the most unfrindly i have ever encountered. Tall and fairly attractive yes but rude, arrogant and agressive in bucketloads! To much wacky backy smoking as well!

lola March 10, 2015 - 23:04

This is all a lie in every country are beautiful ppl and ugly ppl but that gpes away with the years and what really mathers is the inside.

I live in Netherlands since two and a half years.

I have always heard that Dutch women “make the first move”, approaching guys on their own and (for example), going in front of him telling “I like you”.

But, on my own, I have never seen this, so I believe it is a fake story.

Someone has different experiences?

barryberry July 11, 2015 - 23:03

In my opinion they are more forward then average. What does this mean? Not much.
Like all women they are mostly passive, but when that dream guy comes along she might go that extra mile to get noticed.
Guess what, you are probably not that dream guy they are looking for (as are 90% of all other men).

deep_blue July 16, 2015 - 21:13

This of course could be (“you are not the dream man etc. etc…”), but why I have also never seen happening that to other guys (make the first move etc. etc. )?

And I have never heard of someone who has seen/experimented that… despite from what they say (Dutch women, I mean :-)). Until I won’t see with my eyes, I will consider that a urban legend 🙂

deep_blue July 21, 2015 - 19:09

p.s. in other words: when I will see s Dutch girl moving straight towards a unknown guy and telling him “I like you, I want you”, I will start to believe to these fancy stories 🙂

coco August 23, 2015 - 13:04


it s true they really approach guys

Fagg August 24, 2015 - 16:14

Just came back. Had a fine lady hit on me while ripping through the peak traffic on a bike. She was fast!

Tim July 26, 2016 - 07:20

Guess what? Dutch men find Dutch women also dull. To me they are a waste of time. They are loud, masculine and pretty unfeminine. Why would someone go through so much effort to date a Dutch girl?! When there are truly beautiful girls from other countries. Dutch women are good if you really need a two person income household, other than that they are a waste of time.

Incredible how shapeless many of the women are. Tree trunk legs with no definition and the ones who keep “fit” splay their legs outwards whilst trying to jog. Always sporting dressed in orange though…representing…in their own land.
The same contrived nonchalance as most of the men, wanting to be “seen” doing things and making something out of nothing, like being oh so cool whilst sitting in lame bars facing tram stops.
A strong sense of schadenfreude, deeply unfriendly to foreign women, particularly if you are from a country they wish they were from and try to emulate in their attitude.
Loud, crass, acting entitled, completely overbearing and often with no manners. Most never bother to cover their mouths when they cough, sneeze or yawn. Many don’t bother with washing hands in venue and workplace bathrooms.
A complete lack of individuality in dress and appearance. The same long hair and basic look, tall until they reach their twenties when they grow outwards and cut their hair. Keeping on their cowboy boots and cheap looking clothes.

See, when I point these things out as a woman some foreigners think I’m jealous of the awful Dutch women. But Dutch women are awful and that’s not my fault! The number of people I’ve met who dislike them is waaaaay higher than the number who find them tolerable – and that includes other Dutch women and numberless Dutch men!

You’re absolutely right. As a woman I experience what you’re saying every single time I go to a Dutch bar: “deeply unfriendly to foreign women, particularly if you are from a country they wish they were from and try to emulate in their attitude.” Dutch women are extremely jealous of other women, to the point that they often become physically aggressive with me and my female friends.

“Dutch women cheat, but with morals…”

Is this actually a noticeable thing, is it more common with Dutch women than other European countries?

Esther July 23, 2015 - 17:46

I am not really sure if this topic is about woman from Amsterdam or dutch women in general? Because these are two completely different subjects!! And yes the dutch in general are more forward and many of us do walk up to guys we want. If you have never seen it happen, well… I have more than one idea why! Anyway Amsterdam is great, but I am not a big fan of the people living there. I love the smaller cities like Utrecht, Nijmegen, Haarlem. Visit those and you’ll find nicer, more friendly women. Not to be confused with ‘easy’… We are only easy if we want to be! 😉

I fell in love with a dutch woman. They can be like blocks in mannerism. But they are great in bed, love to try anything, especially if risky. Screaming orgasms as long as the windows open for the neighbors to hear. Died of cance, miss her heaps Karla vink

I lived in Amsterdam for 5 years. I love that town very much. As a woman I found Dutch women came in 2 types. They were either sincere, kind and turned out to be great long-term loyal friends. Or the other type seemed to be uncertain of whether it’s possible to be strong and feminine at the same time. And so, they projected a lot of masculine traits. I believe this gives them a feeling of being assertive and a force to be reckoned with. Many of my Dutch male friends say “Too many Dutch women are Swagger-Chics. We need more feminine women in this town. Which is why we get excited when foreign women like us.” So I agree with the claims being made by previous commenters. Who stated that Dutch women are rude to and dislike foreign women. I’ve witnessed this. I’ve observed Dutch women hating on foreign women who were in relationships with Dutch men, or who were being admired by Dutch men. I find this bizarre. As an Italian, we admire beautiful women regardless of their culture, and regardless of whether they’re with a fellow Italian man. We don’t care. We simply admire beauty. Dutch women are clearly lacking something that they mistrust (femininity) whilst also wanting to posses it. And yet they resent it deeply when other women have it. And no amount of dressing up and wearing a ton of make up can accomplish it either. You possess femininity throughout your life or you don’t. Growing up within a society that THANKFULLY worked to achieve more freedoms for women, unfortunately also threw the baby out with the bath water, and dissolved the idea of all feminine traits. And it’s Dutch women who made this decision! It’s sad for Dutch women. But GREAT news for us foreign women. After all, Dutch men are gorgeous! And Amsterdam is like a fantastic playground to meet lots of beautiful, tall, sexy men to lure into our feminine lairs. Where we can seduce them and take good, good care of them. Oh amore, dai, dai!!

There is a lot of truth in most of these comments. Having lived in several places around the world, I now live in Amsterdam and as a city I like it. Or more honestly, I grew to like it. For sure I arrived with low expectations of Dutch women: I knew that many of them can be beautiful, but also expected little sweetness and femininity from them. Alas, while a lot of women here do live up to some of the unfavourable stereotypes mentioned by others, I have probably seen even more who take some care of themselves, dress in a flattering way (if helps that many of them have good bodies), have nice manners and are quite approachable. With certain Dutch women, when the stars align, they can be delightful and irresistible, in an earthy way. Even their language can sound nearly almost close to being melodic. And fortunately, that seems to happen more often than in say the UK or Germany, which are the Netherlands’ closest cousins. When it does, you can be at risk of falling off your bike or cycling into a tram.
BUT, and there is always a but: in matters concerning money, space or time, you can be sure that Dutchies — for better or for worse — will make every €, m2 or second count. So if you find such efficiency and resourcefulness a bit of a turn-off, then this place might not be for you.
