In Europe, getting to know someone romantically is fairly laid back.
People don't tend to go on ‘dates' with complete strangers but instead often get to know someone who's already in their circle or the friend of a friend, and then it ‘just happens' and they decide to go out together alone. There aren't too many rigid rules, either: "In the Netherlands there are no set rules – you might do all or nothing on the first or tenth date," and, "the timescale between the first date and having sex in France could be anything from 20 years to 20 seconds," said European expats.

I've been to the Netherlands several times and also my personal experience with every Dutch person I've ever known is that they are extremely sexual.
If you like each other, you'll probably find a way to make it work, regardless of any cultural variations.
But knowing some of the cultural differences – who makes the first move, kissing on a first date, how soon to call after a date – may help you avoid awkward situations, or at least stop you from getting hurt or hurting someone else unintentionally.
It is a great cause for shame and embarrassment to let a woman (even if she is a heartless vamp) pay a part or all of the bill where I come from.
However, they spend as little as 3 minutes looking at the mirror.
