Online dating faroe islands autostarts widget updating
This in turn has seen the Faroese men broaden their search for a romantic partner, well online at least.
More than 300 women left their tropical southeast Asian climate for the windswept Faroe Islands after meeting their partners through commercial dating sites."I had my concerns, because everything she was leaving and everything she was coming to were opposites," Jan Slaetalid said after meeting his wife Athaya online.
The pair is now a trio after the birth of their son Jacob but Athaya conceded that the transition took some getting used to, which included learning the Faroese language."The other villagers are older people and mostly don't speak English.
People our age were out at work and there were no children for Jacob to play with," Athaya said.
For the past few decades, there has been a sort of women-drought in the Faroe. Internet dating has allowed some of the men to start looking for love thousands of kilometres away – technology is bringing multiculturalism here for the first time.
Dahl said that Asian woman are often willing to take jobs that Faroese women will not do.
