What are the Dutch really like?


Too Direct?

Cheap and Frugal?

Seems like the Dutch would agree with you.

I have been to the Netherlands many times, and have always found the locals to be very friendly, open and interested in what you are planning to see while you are there. I have had some great recommendations that are never listed in the tourist guides.

Someone posted a video a while back by a fat American woman living in the Netherlands. She was scarfing down a large bag of popcorn with her little daughter in a movie theater when a stranger leans over to tell her she shouldn't be buying large sizes and that's why she's fat. She said pretty much everyone there finds a way to tell her she's fat.

I don't care if it's cultural, reminding someone they're fat when their little kid is there is brutal. I'm not fat though so I would visit. I think their bluntness is funny. The Russians are like that too.

I don't think that's true, R82.

I've seen many with lots of body hair, but it's just that their hair is lighter and finer, and so it blends in with their skin tone.

It's there, but you just don't see it.

Jesse from Amsterdam on 90 Day Fiance is an example.

On the show, he has very hairy arms and legs and chest.
