My international friends from university asked me today to explain how dating works in Sweden.
Apparently they have trouble getting into the rules of the Swedish dating game.
This post is being closed because of its age, 200 comments (causing reading issues), and load problems. Does it really take forever for people to get married in Sweden?
Please continue writing and sharing stories on the new dating Swedish men post.
Try not to get offended or assume that he’s not into you if he doesn’t bring you flowers, if he doesn’t hold the door up for you, if he doesn’t pay for the movie or if he doesn’t offer to walk you home.
Instead, he will always respect you and he will never assume that you are weak or bad at something just because you’re a girl.
Girls, don’t read anything into it if the guy doesn’t pay, you’re expected to split the bill in the name of equality.
I might add that texting is the preferred channel of communication with Swedish guys.Many people regard those who only hang out in the bar as suspicious*. If you catch somebody’s eye, and the two of you look at each other for more than a second, then you’re good to start dancing with each other (at this point, you don’t even have to ask about the dance, you both know it’s coming).From the moment the two of you start dancing, the rules aren’t as strict as before.It’s not as easy as going up to someone and offer them a drink or ask them to dance.Many people see this as too forward and will get defensive if they are approached in this way.
