It's unusual if people have been together many years and are not married.
Do you think there are specific gender roles here or — Definitely! We have a lot of groups that are fighting about it now: "We shouldn't make the genders have their roles — everyone should get to do everything." "Small boys shouldn't just be given cars to play with — they should also be given dolls and Barbies." The other day, a big ice-cream factory in Iceland put ice cream on the market — a blue ice cream that was called the boy ice cream and a pink ice cream that was called the girl ice cream — and they had to take it off the market because everything went ballistic.
Nor are they in general much for telling us we're beautiful. They're all about being manly and they think that showing emotions or a soft side would be a sign of weakness.
girls in Iceland are not used to being treated like…
I think it's because it's never been that way here and we're not used to…
Me (Ragnheiður) for example now looked up (Daði) my co-worker and we are related in the 7th link.
So this means that our great, great, great, great grandmothers were sisters.
Please clear up this rumor: since it's so small and there's many interrelated people, do people find that this causes problems in their romantic lives? NEXT: “I'm not afraid if I meet a guy that he's going to be my cousin.” How do you meet people in Iceland that you want to get with?
Well, I do know one boy and girl who have been together for a year and just found out that they had the same great-grandmother, but… M: I think most people meet when they go out to party.
Not so related but because we can look it up it might seem like it! Icelanders are not much into the whole “can I take you out for a first date “ in the formal matter of sitting down at a nice restaurant.
Most of my friends say that this is just too much pressure.
But it wasn't very exciting, probably because we just don't know how to do it. Which is why I think many Icelandic girls fall for guys from other countries, because of things like opening doors and stuff that Icelandic guys don't do.
