International dating is quite exciting – you are not only getting the chance to explore the country, meet the culture, taste the food, but also to meet people and get to know their habits. If you are new here, make sure to check out all the men’s country guides to see how Danish men compare in all categories.
My trip to Denmark was one of the most memorable and Danish men in bed weren’t disappointing!
If you were wondering how to meet Danish men and what Danish dating culture is like, continue reading this article!
I have many tips for dating a Danish man and I will break down some of the most common Danish men stereotypes.
The Most Important Traits of Danish Men
Traveling is my biggest passion and meeting handsome men on my holiday is a great way to spice up my journeys.
And sexy Danish men are among my favorites.
Have you ever visited Germany or any Scandinavian country? If you have, then you probably have an idea of what Danish men look like.
This area is under the influence of both Germany and Norway, and Danish guys are a perfect mixture of these two nations.
There are many migrants from other parts of Europe as well, so not every guy will be just as described.
One thing is sure – your future Danish boyfriend is going to be an eye-candy for sure!
Just take a look at these handsome Danish men. On a scale of 1 to 10, they deserve 11!
Some of their physical traits fit Danish guy stereotypes, but I don’t mind that a single bit!
If you love guys with blond hair and deep blue eyes then you will adore Danish men.
I mean, pale guys are my type, but hot Danish men leave me breathless.
Just by staring into those eyes, you can fall in love! I didn’t believe in love at first sight, but this doesn’t apply to Danish males.
Those dreamy eyes in combination with a wide and bright smile are stealing the hearts of women all around!
When it comes to their physical appearance, they look a lot like Germans, but even better.
Just like Swedish men, they have Viking origin and love to show off their natural beauty!
Also, they work out often and their bodies look amazing – nothing over the top, but still muscular.
Moreover, if you are into taller men, then hot Danish guys are your type! The average height is 5’9’’ or 181 cm, and even taller women can find the man of their dreams among single Danish guys easily!
Of course, the country isn’t filled with just pale guys with blue or green eyes. Because of the mixed nations that live in this area, there are handsome Danish guys with darker hair and eyes too.
They are a minority and you could mistake one of them for a tourist.
One thing is common for all Danish men – they take good care of their looks.
Monthly visits to hairdressers are a must and you won’t see them rocking long beards. They like to keep it simple and classy, at least when it comes to their appearance…
Danish guys in bed like to get wild, but more on it later.
Are Danish men Stylish?
I was amazed by how well Danish men dress!
They are well-dressed for any occasion – dinner, brunch, and work, or even for going to the store or walking in the park.
Sexy Danish guys are stylish and modern, which you will notice once you start dating a Danish guy.
Even when they are wearing the brand that isn’t as popular, they are rocking the look!
Danish fashion is all about minimalism and you will often see them wearing only one color – mostly black.
They don’t feel the need to brag about different brands, show expensive tags or point out the amount of money they’ve spent on their wardrobe.
Because they know how to behave, I’m sure that they could pull off wearing a trash bag!
Literally! You’ll see.
Just because they don’t like to brag, doesn’t mean that they don’t own nice things. If you see a Danish guy in a suit, he probably spent a good amount of money on it.
Also, they love high-end briefcases, watches, and shoes. One of their favorite brands for getting accessories is Norse Projects.
If you are lucky enough to get a present from a Danish guy, you will probably receive a popular Pandora bracelet or locket!
Even when they are shopping for their girlfriends, they are doing it with style!
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the physical trait ratings for Danish men, we have also created our own additional rating from the Danish men we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the men and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Denmark and took note of how many handsome men there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Danish men. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
Character Traits of Danish Men
Typical Danish men won’t just amaze you with their look, but with their behavior as well.
Here is all you need to know about what are Danish men like.
You will also learn everything about what are Danish men like in relationships so you know what to expect!
1. Gentlemen rating
They are raised to behave like gentlemen, but not to just give it away.
Gender equality is popular in Denmark and they are very aware of it.
Much like in other Scandinavian countries.
If he is treating you well and you are not acting the same, he will instantly change his behavior.
They don’t plan on being your prince on a white horse or to shower you with gifts and treats.
In the beginning, they will probably act reserved and make sure that you deserve everything they can offer to you.
Once they get to know you better, you will see that they are full of surprises!
So when you start dating Danish men, be patient!
Even if they are acting a bit cold, that doesn’t mean they are uninterested.
They are simply giving you the space to show your personality.
Danish men in bed are the same – they will work, but you have to do some of the work as well!
Remember their Viking origin? Well, they are quite aware of it!
Because of it, they are loyal to their family and friends and once you get to know them better, you will find that they have the biggest heart!
Also, typical Danish guys are quite patriotic and nurture their culture – you will see a Danish flag at almost every corner.
I have a good reason for not giving them the highest grade!
Danish men aren’t liars and I could never describe them as ones.
However, they won’t always tell you the truth.
In their country, it is perfectly normal to keep some of the things to yourself and reveal them once somebody has gained your trust.
And let me just add the white lies into the mix.
Being as polite as they are, they can never go with answering completely honestly to some questions.
And, truth be told, we women don’t always like the bare truth!
These guys are quite loyal to everyone – friends, family and colleagues.
However, that loyalty has to be earned!
You won’t be in the exclusive relationship with them from the start and they will most likely keep their options open.
Once he feels like he can trust you completely, he will stay by your side no matter what!
5. How protective are they?
If a Dane man thinks that you are in any danger, he will instantly stand up to protect you.
Keep in mind that Dane men do believe in gender equality and that in some situations, you won’t need their help at all, so they will step aside and let you deal with the issue by yourself.
Also, this protective side of Danish men, like everything else, can’t be forced and you have to wait for it to come naturally.
6. Are they resourceful?
You can talk to your Danish boyfriend about everything – they understand politics, economy and science.
Also, they don’t think it is a woman’s job to do everything around the house and most of them are incredible cooks.
They won’t mind completing any of the house chores, however, you will still be expected to do the same.
But if you need anything done or a real help with something, you can always rely on your Danish guy!
A typical Danish guy takes his job quite serious and he is raised to act mature.
However, this can’t be applied to all situations.
Single Danish men don’t act mature. It is normal for them to date multiple girls until they choose the one they like the most.
This doesn’t mean that they are immature – it is just that they like to stay open to new experiences.
But once they have found the one… They will instantly turn into a husband material!
On my international dating journey, I have stumbled upon many attractive and confident men.
However, Danish men are taking self-confidence to another level!
They are aware of their looks, style, strength (as well as weaknesses) and knowledge.
All of those things make them quite confident but still down to earth.
Let me be clear, there is no bragging about the car they drive, the brand they are wearing on anything similar.
Even without bragging, they have radiating confidence and that is incredibly attractive!
9. Are they friendly or reserved?
When you start dating Danish guys, you will see that they are both!
Their behavior depends on how well they know you – with someone who is in their life for a long time, they are open and outgoing and if it’s your first day, well, then they will act a bit shy and reserved.
Danish men are awesome and friendly Scandinavians – some of the best from that region.
If you love to go out a lot and do not mind the cold, Denmark is a great place to go to and you are sure to find amazingly pretty men that will spoil you with loads of fun.
They are cool guys who love and treat their women right.
But there is more – some drawbacks. Want to find out?
Pros and Cons of dating Danish men
Now that you know what are Danish guys like in relationships, here are all of the advantages and disadvantages of dating a Danish man.
1. Denmark is an amazing country
Denmark isn’t just a beautiful country.
The architecture is breath-taking, food tasty and they love to pay attention to details.
But what is even more important, it is the perfect place for raising the family.
Their school system is one of the most advanced in the world and because of the good educational system, they are all so incredibly smart and resourceful.
Danish people are taught to think with their heads, outside of the box and they are ambitious.
That is how they created a country with one of the highest standards for living.
2. You won’t have to deal with the language barrier
The official language of Denmark is Danish, but they speak other languages as well.
Because of the closeness to Germany and Norway, these languages are often spoken.
Also, many of them are fluent in English and French, so you don’t have to bring a dictionary on your trip.
Danish men won’t have any difficulties with understanding you or answering your questions.
3. They respect women
Your Danish boyfriends won’t give you an ultimatum or expect you to choose between having family and chasing your career.
They believe that both are achievable and they will help you with having both.
Gender equality is something that is normal in Denmark and isn’t a taboo topic.
Women have the same chances as men when it comes to getting a job and promotions.
If you do start a family, both parents get maternity leave and are able to focus only on their family for a certain period.
If they don’t feel like talking about something, they will keep their mouth shut no matter what you do!
It is best to leave them until they cool down and decide to talk about an issue.
By acting like this, not every problem can be so easily resolved and you might feel like they are testing your patience, but there is nothing you can do about it.
2. Be ready to share him
This is only at the beginning of the relationship!
Don’t expect to be the only girl he is seeing if you aren’t dating exclusively.
Until they find a girl they think is the one for settling down, they want to keep their options open. Chatting with a few girls simultaneously is something completely normal to them!
Also, if they can do it, so can you!
3. Not as macho
They probably believe that they have to act tough because of gender equality.
Everything they can do, they think you are able to do yourself, so they don’t need to show a macho side.
This also means that he won’t treat you like you are this delicate flower and constantly shower you with gifts.
So if that’s what you’re looking for, better pass along.

You are probably wondering how to meet a Danish guy if you aren’t traveling to Denmark any time soon.

How to conquer a Danish man’s heart
1. Talk about your interests
Danish men are ambitious and it makes sense that their ideal woman is the same.
On the first date, don’t brag about accomplishments, but don’t hide them either!
They want to know what you have been doing, what do you plan on doing in the future and all about your hobbies.
The more unusual the hobby is, the more interested they will be so don’t be shy around them!
2. Show interest in their culture
Because of the Vikings in the blood, they are proud of where they come from.
Feel free to ask any question about Denmark, the city they come from or some of their traditions.
These topics show them that you respect their culture and heritage and it is one of the things they love to talk about the most.
Of course, if they are avoiding a particular question, don’t be pushy!
3. Don’t rush
If you try to speed things up, they might pull off.
One of the most important Danish men dating tips is to be patient! This can be applied to everything!
Don’t rush to go on a date with him, plan a next one, and start an exclusive relationship or to tie the knot.
If they don’t do things at their pace, they easily lose interest and move on.
When you approach him, chat with him for a few minutes, ask for a phone number and go steady.
Once he sees you are giving him the needed space, then he will feel more comfortable which leads to more dates and a serious relationship at the end.
4. Keep it simple
There are many popular fancy restaurants across Denmark, but your date won’t be so excited about meeting you in one of them!
Danish guys love to keep things simple and sitting at the bar, drinking beer is more than enough!
They love simplicity in everything. If you are wondering what to wear on the first date, be comfortable, don’t show off too much jewelry, wear something modern and look effortless.
