Dating customs in sweden
There is a high chance that she will refuse,but this is a common dating behaviour to check to see if the man is serious about the date or not.
If the man is serious then he should ask the woman out again.
I wouldn't say that Swedes don't talk about their feelings, we just don't expect the conversation to have a certain outcome because of our actions. I do agree that 'dating' or whatever is much less formal in Scandinavia in the early stages, however, having lived practically all my life in Scandinavian countries and having recently moved to Canada. Well, perhaps relationships, but only if they're at all in or near one, either coming or going.
Have fun with it and perhaps the Swedish way makes you uncomfortable, but then you know it's not for you. Angsty teenagers and second-chance-at-lifers excluded, I've never heard a Swede gripe about not being in a relationship unless they're actually interested in someone already.
Match with a few girls, chat with them to see if theyre girlfriend material, sleep with them and then take it from there. But also I think it's not that there is a lack of dating or sex to be found here, but that no one is really sure of what's going on for too long.Equally, there are no rules on how long you should wait for a date with a call.If a man is interested in a French woman, he will typically ask her out on a date.You then know that the sexual attraction is there, no one has led the other person on, unless you expect having sex to lead to emotional commitment, and you are not too invested in the other person should it turn out that the only thing you have in common is that you both wanted to fuck each other at the same time. Sexual attraction is not the same as love and you can have one without the other.It's a very Scandinavian concept in general and, as we are getting more and more Americanised, something that sticks out more and more.
