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:

- 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.
