Some say that the Shallow Man is old, others, when they see my elegantly suited and well trained physique, prefer to think of me as having matured like a Henri Jayer Vosne-Romanee Burgundy. Being so mature, the Shallow Man can remember the days when one would actually have to leave one’s palace to meet a potential partner for life, or the for the night.
Due to my role as the elder statesmen of expat affairs, (albeit an unofficial title) the Shallow Man has received the following request.“Shallow Man, I tried some of your dating tips, but really can’t be bothered to stroke someone’s Lion King hair, or compliment them on their appearance if I don’t like how they are dressed, for me, that’s a little bit….shallow? A common complaint among fellow expats is how difficult it is for them to actually make friends with Dutch people. Who wouldn’t want to be friends with these tall gorgeous happy blonde beauties with flawless biking skills?Its stable economy usually means moving to work in the Netherlands is a safe move for expats.I knew there was a new language to learn, one I thought at the time had vague similarities to my A-level German.The Expat herd tend to flock online, (Don’t’ say that too quickly) to the Expatica dating site which is the best place found by the Shallow Man for online dating in Amsterdam.
