The title of this post was one such google search query. I understand the feeling of doing an internet search for something that there are probably no true answers for, but trying anyway. I protested and defended myself, saying that yes I was moving to Sweden and had dated and known some Swedes but I was not limited to only that or trying only for that. But as far as men everywhere go, they are probably all as equally confused inside, it's just that Swedish guys go ahead and act that way." I thought that was an interesting answer. A Swedish girl one time saw a message that a Swedish guy had written to a girl that said very directly "I think you are interesting, fun, pretty and I want to get to know you better." She was shocked and asked if he was really Swedish and thought that the message was actually over the top, too much. no wonder other Swedish guys would avoid saying such direct things, if many girls here would consider it to be too much. So, if I may quote a Swedish guy I know who once lived in the States... Where I lived there was plenty of good-looking ones.
Also on the date, as a girl, you shouldn’t expect that the man will pick up the check after the dinner or “fika”, usually people pay for themselves.
And as a man, assuming that you should pay may be considered rude as it would suggest the woman can’t pay for herself, although she can and wants to. The success factor of a date depends equally as much on the man as the woman.
If you’re in Sweden for Valentine’s Day and about to go on your first date with a Swede, here are some insights on what you could/should expect.
Sweden is one of the world’s most equal countries when it comes to gender equality and the norms of what a date could look like.
