Dating between men and women
Belgians are also particular about their surroundings, and take pride in clean and well-maintained homes, as well as organisation in their social lives and careers.
Thus appearing careless or irresponsible in your habits or manners are not generally attractive traits to Belgian men or women.
At dinner parties, it's not uncommon that partners or husbands and wives are not seated together.
Belgians also tend to be thrifty and don't appreciate waste, so finishing all the food on your plate is important.
The country is divided into three language regions, where they speak Flemish/Dutch, French and Germany.
Punctuality is also a prided trait, and turning up late is a sign of disrepect.
If your date is picking you up, this means being ready well in advance – they'll likely be on your doorstep before the agreed time.
Good manners and presentation are also key when looking to impress someone, especially when dining.
With access to an array of top Belgian foods and gourmet restaurants, an inner foodie hides in every Belgian; cooking skills, appreciation of fine food and proper table manners are great starting points to impress your date.
