During my first week in Denmark, I was extremely surprised at how many couples I saw engaging in public displays of affection.
They were holding hands, kissing, and hugging on nearly every street corner.
In my experience, teenagers who want to sleep together have to lie to their parents about it.
By teaching children how to interact with the opposite sex when they are children, Danes lessen the gender gap and ensure that the younger generation respects each other as men and women.
Likewise, conflicts are solved by compromise and negotiation rather than force.
The nation’s egalitarian nature holds everyone to the same esteem—rich or poor, woman or man—and offers the same support to all.
Male-female relationships start at a very young age in Denmark.
Girls are expected to participate in sports at a young age, and boys are encouraged to embrace their sensitivity.
Because these ideas are fostered during childhood, they characterize the way men and women interact throughout their entire lives.
All the men seemed to be very tender with their significant others, which is not as common in the United States.
