” I think this is because I’ve had my fair share of dating Swedish men and while they, of course, possess many positive attributes (think great bone structure, effortless style and can pull off a Baby Björn like no one else), they seem to be lacking that gentlemanly gene.Maybe I’m alone in this thought that I’m about to share, but here in Stockholm, I sometimes miss feeling like a woman.Imagine, for a moment, that your Swedish friend calls you up on the phone to talk about her weekend.She’s going on and on about some guy she met at Sturehof and after describing his toned physique and playful demeanor, she then adds, “Oh!I realized later that if anyone else had been walking by at that very moment, they might have thought we were complete strangers, not casually dating each other.We ate our frukost in relative silence but I remembered asking him, “Why did you rush inside so fast?To me, these little things do matter and are often, what I find, unfortunately missing from the average Swedish male’s dating repertoire.

But, let the stories and pondering continue here as we figure out the A to Z of Swedish men. “We have sex first, then see each other.” B – Beautiful and blond. C – Confusing; few understand the male species and even less understand the Swedish man D – Dutch dates are possible, especially if in Sweden. S – Sambo, rhymes with mambo, is the traditional way for Swedish being ‘together’ but not married.

Pushing men too hard left or right, risks alienating them and sending them away. It’s okay, give the guys some space and time to write/text you back.

And the best part is that he’s very chivalrous.” Can you honestly recall the last time you heard someone describe her potential love interest as such?

Having now adjusted to Swedish culture, I would find it very odd if my friend would describe her new guy to me in such a way. Did he say he grew up somewhere else besides Sweden?
