Dating an swedish man
They want life and love and everything else in between to be “just right” or rolling down the middle of the road. N – Nagging is what girls may feel when the Swedes are unresponsive.
T – Text messaging is the best way to communicate with Swedish men.
I reached levels of unhappiness I did not even think they existed and tried the best I could to find a way to interact with them, but interaction is not considered.
Swedes are individualists and don’t like commitment. There was no real communication for me, they don’t talk, they don’t share ideas, they are extremely passive. I tried dating other Swedish guys after the breakup, thinking maybe I just fell in love with the wrong guy, but in the end I felt like it is almost impossible to build something with depth.
It may be the best way to communicate in general for Swedes.
U – Unemotional, hard-to-read, and sometimes stoic, the Swedish man keeps his feelings to himself.
After 10 years where I was more than frustrated and we can't say I haven’t tried, it is just that people have zero value and hence in a relationship you are on your own and your partner is on his or her own. It looks like there is a book of rules that you have to follow to stay in a relationship and none of those ever sounded attractive to me.
I was never happy and their social contract that forces people to live isolated, where you do nothing together, really is on top of the cake of frustration.
Men usually think honesty, freedom of expression, and the art of avoiding conflict are must-have traits.In these environments, and with the help of their good friend alcohol, they become kind of talkative. * If the party was good enough and you come back home with a phone number, you should text first. It means “pretending not to hear you and avoiding you instead”. I have talked about this with many Swedes and they all told me that it is a social convention to avoid putting rejection into words.Waiting for a Swede to text will just infuriate you. * If they answer you, your first date will probably be going for fika.It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a guide to dating Swedish men! (Anonymous comment from a male friend) H – Hair gel is a necessity, not an option. O – Obtuse, like any man, the Swedish man has proven to be equally if not more obtuse at times. Q – Quiet and shy describes 90% of Swedish men in Sweden and 10% abroad.First off, thank you to all who have posted on the Dating in Sweden post. I – IKEA will be the ‘big step’ in your lives as couple. Okay, exaggeration but they lose their very quiet nature when going abroad.
