Swedish girls receive mixed reviews from men who have visited Sweden. For some men, they rank among the giants of international women such as Russian and Ukrainian women. Other men suggest that Swedish girls are no better than American or British in terms of their attitudes and overrated appearances.
In this article, we will attempt to elucidate the confusion related to the most famous Scandinavian women and shed light on how to be successful with dating Swedish girls.
The following are 10 things men need to know about Swedish girls before they embark on a Swedish invasion trip.
1. Their Attitude
Upon my first trip to Stockholm, I felt as though I entered a land devoid of human emotion. Sweden feels like it was built inside a laboratory. It has a sterile and bland feeling. It is like eating an unflavored potato. You know its food, but you second guess if it’s really edible. Sweden as a country feels soulless. This melancholic and emotionally detached feeling undoubtedly rubs off on its citizens.
Swedish girls are flat-lined emotionally. They don’t emote many highs or lows. Perhaps they have discovered the secret to emotional equilibrium. Perhaps… In any event, they certainly don’t exude the passion like Latinas or have the deep introspection of a Russian woman.
Swedish girls are simply middle of the road personality wise.
Nothing in particular stands out about them except the importance of social circle. Like most Scandinavian countries, making new friends is rare. Swedes tend to stick closely to their friends. Most of their friends are from childhood and they have long-standing histories. Swedes aren’t afraid of strangers; they just feel comfortable in familiar surroundings.
Since the Viking days, Swedish women were known to be strong-willed and independent. Centuries ago they were permitted to own land and attain positions of importance. When their husbands went off to war, they assumed the position as head of the household in charge of all important decisions. Swedish women were even permitted to hold positions such as doctors way before other European women.
These independent traits persist in the modern day.
Swedish girls are brought up to be confident, accomplished, and successful. They are unafraid to speak their mind and share viewpoints. Furthermore, Swedish dating does not move towards marriage. Couples usually cohabitate but do walk down the aisle of matrimony together.
It is common for Swedish couples to have children later in life. Swedish women tend to have children late and do not produce many offspring.
2. The looks of Swedish women
A dichotomy exists between Swedish girls. At the top end, they are the most stunning women in the world. The second group falls within the average range of attractiveness. They tend to be slightly overweight but with cute faces. There are very few ugly women in Sweden. So, one can argue that the average Swedish girl is fairly attractive.
Similar to Finnish women, women in Sweden do not reach their full potential. Generically, they have superior looks. Fair skinned, with proportionate features, Swedish girls who work-out and maximize their appearance, can truly be gorgeous. If I had to rate the top 10 most beautiful I have seen in my life, I would say a least 3 of them were from Sweden.
In addition, to not focus on their looks, the hipster movement has a strong presence in Sweden. It is common to see Swedish girls dress in dark colors. They wear a lot of black and grey clothing with sneakers. Fortunately, they have not begun to cut their hair short. Let’s hope they don’t go down this dark road.
3. They are open-minded
As a liberal state, Sweden encourages equality among the genders and races. Sweden has opened its borders to Middle Eastern and African immigrants. Swedish girls, in fact, are very open to dating men from diverse races. It is fairly common to see dark-skinned men with beautiful blondes.
Indian, Arabian, and African men do well here; as do, African Americans. It can even be said that Swedish girls generally have a thing for American men.
Many Swedish girls work and study in the United States during their university years. They tend to develop a fondness for Americans. In addition to loving Americans accents, they think American men are very cool.
4. Swedish men are underachievers
In my travels, I have heard many comments from women of all backgrounds about how handsome Swedish men are. Swedish men are tall, well-dressed, and are intelligent. However, they are very passive with their own women. Like most Swedes, they stick to familiar people and don’t take a risk with women.
You don’t see Swedish men approaching a lot in Nightclubs. Most of the approaching in Stockholm clubs is done by foreigners.
Swedish girls are not as impressed with money and status like many women in Eastern Europe. Sweden is a wealthy nation. Most Swedes live a comfortable life. They have well-paying jobs, healthcare, and security. There are very few poor and homeless people. Women do not look toward men to elevate their lifestyle.
This departure from Slavic women. for instance. Also due to pervasive ideology in Sweden that women and men are the same, there is no need to attempt to impress Swedish girls with how much money you earn. Bragging is a will be a turnoff in Sweden
6. Political correctness
Being politically correct in Sweden is a way of life. People who oppose this ideological stance, are scorned. It is best to avoid any conversations of politics, especially if you have conservative views. Never pass judgment on abortion and other sensitive topics.
7. Nightlife in Sweden
Swedish girls can be difficult to figure out at night. They rely on their social group for comfort. So, it can be difficult to isolate them from their friends. Consequently, it can be frustrating because you will receive positive vibes but getting them alone is difficult. However, if you achieve isolation, they are very easy to score with. Swedish girls have liberal attitudes towards casual sex.
Despite the fact that they don’t mix it up with strangers often, they will have no hesitation to sleep with someone they like, if the conditions permit. Swedish girls have a liberal attitude about sex, but they are not hypersexual. They view sex as natural and don’t put a lot of attention to sexual issues.
8. Day game in Sweden
Meeting Swedish girls during the day is a mixed bag. They are often polite and friendly. However, they are very shy and uncomfortable meeting new men without the aid of alcohol. You will see some real stunners at upscale malls and on the streets in Stockholm (during warm months). It is worth a crack if you see a woman up your alley. Just be sure to moderate your expectations.
I find that an indirect opener works well. Once you have rapport going you can be a bit more direct with expressing your interest, although don’t be overly aggressive. First dates should always be a drink at a low-key bar. Make sure you have your logistics set up properly because getting a Swedish girl out on a date is half the settle.
It is best to project yourself as a confident, worldly man without boasting about achievements. If they shit test you about what you think of Swedish girls, just subtly say they seem nice, but do not comment on their looks. Be very neutral on your appraisal of Swedish girls and the country. Remember, controversial topics are to be avoided. Keep it vanilla.
Also, it is important to down-play dating. Do not ask a girl to go out on a “date” with you. This is way too formal for a Swedish woman. Instead, ask her to hang out and grab a drink. When in doubt, keep things casual. Also, if you are of a similar age, be prepared for her to offer to split the bill. You won’t lose points if you accept her offer.
9. Online dating
As shy people, online dating is not great in Sweden. You can give International Cupid a shot, but moderate your expectations. You may get lucky meeting a cute Swedish girl on Cupid. More likely, there will be foreign women who live in Sweden that have an account with International Cupid. Either way, it’s worth a look.
10. The short-list of where to go
There are only two cities worth visiting for meeting Swedish girls: Stockholm and Gothenburg.
For nightlife, check out the following clubs:
- Port Du soleil
- Sticky Fingers
In Stockholm Stureplan is the best place to party. Check out these clubs for best results:
- Café Opera
For Day game you can hit:
- Drottninggatan main shopping street
- Medborgarplatsen by Södermalm
Pro tip: Nightlife in Sweden can be costly. A few more things to consider:
- There is usually a cover charge.
- Arrive early to avoid the cover charge, usually around 11 p.m. Arriving early also ensures better ratios. Men usually arrive later after they are drunk, usually between 1-2 a.m.
Closing thoughts on Swedish girls
Opinions on Swedish girls vary significantly. We hope that we have cleared up some of the diverging opinions on the women of Sweden. At their best, Swedish girls are absolute stunners. Most of them fall them middle the characteristics of their country: they are feminists, open-minded about dating other races, and do not present with extremes of behavior. On average, they are attractive women but do not reach their potential due to poor style of dress and lack of emphasis on appearance.
American men and darker-skinned men do exceedingly well with the ladies in Sweden.
