But much like other reported miracles, such as Christ walking on water or an American president delivering a speech he wrote himself, it’s something I’ve never seen with my own eyes.
For one thing, Danish people seem to think that talking to strangers is uncouth.
Ask Danish men why they don’t chat up women, and they say that women don’t want to be approached.
They’ll make fun of you; they’ll think you’re desperate. What men want of course, is the same thing that has produced a world population currently approaching 7 billion.
Before 1am, Danish men weren’t drunk enough to talk, and after 3, they were too drunk to talk.
Extreme drunkeness seems to be the accepted way to meet that special someone, as explained to me in the days when I still was seeking a Danish boyfriend.
One-night stands certainly take place in the US, but it is something unusual and embarassing, like making a lot of money in Denmark.
Copenhagen is home to one of Europe’s oldest gay bars, Centralhjørnet from 1917, which openly became a gay bar in 1950’s.Most women want the same thing, although they’d probably like it to last longer than three minutes.Yet you see Danish men and women in parks in the summer, sitting alone on blankets, or in cafes in the winter surrounded by their buddies or girlfriends with their hair carefully gelled, lonely and horny but contemptous of anyone who dares to approach.The movie The Danish Girl is based on a real story about the transgender Dane Einar Wegener, who became Lili Elbe.On my very first night in Copenhagen, I went with an American girlfriend to a downtown discotheque. I think Zulus or spacemen would have found some way to communicate with us, but this was apparently beyond the capability of three well-educated Danes.
