Dating rules in Sweden, or how and where you can meet a Swedish guy (or girl)
And I agree… but I have a very wide image of what a Goddess is…. So is he inlove wth me. This is really frustrating coz I really want to know my results. He has no children but he is great with my son and my son is a challenge my son really likes him. In fact, most Swedish girls will refuse to let the guy pay for her coffee even if he insists on paying for both of them, and many will even get offended. We got closer and started spending the nights together with no sex. He never gave me anything last feb.
Why did a nice girl like me date an inmate?
Does He Really Love Me? Really good post, Antonia! We talk on the phone daily and I know he has a lot of female friends none of which I have met. I have no idea how to navigate with men and this guy is the first man that has ever not hurt me and been abusive physically, emotionally, or sexually with me. You will be expected to do it yourself.
I liked him a lot and i can never find him again. He compliments me, he smiles when he talks to me, he flushes when i crack a joke, and he makes plans on what to do the next time we see each other. And oh, he remembers details of my life often. My friend told me to ask him out officially, while the others said i should just wait. I dont want to ruin how good things are but this has been going on for so long. Hi I can understood what hppan on you. I met same thing with my bf, he made me confused cuz he always want time to think should we become couple or not.
I asked 3 times in 2 month but we been together in the third time. I think you should just ask him, I think over one month is not too long but ok to ask be officially date or relationship. Hi all, I am a brazilian man living in europe. In the last few months I was approached recently 5 times by Sweedish girls in public space street, bar, night club…. First time happened in Rio and most of the time in Switzerland, where I live. Only 2 days ago the same happened but in a bar, i got the tel number and we have been talking in the whatsup.
Maybe i followed the rule of the fikka… by chance. I find them very pretty, but a bit slippery; maybe because i was not playing by the rules before. I mean, just to give a kiss does take too much of logistics, nothing wrong with this…. Anyway, I am not a latin lover kissing… 20 girls per month. But I would like to have a Sweedish girlfriend… now i think I understood the game. Anyway, I find Sweed girls funny I wish i had one as a friend.
I think they like man in the style of Christiano Ronaldo. I think he likes you. Asking him out officially is totally okay. Those things you said he did, mine did too. He seems to be having a lot of hang ups from his ex and even a friend who just met him for the first time thought he has issues with himself.
After that confession we hang out and seemed like nothing happened. We were our usual selves. However he started to lay low in maintaining contact with me. He still replies but doesnt expand the conversation anymore. I asked him if i did something wrong or stepped over a line and said my sorrys. He said i shouldnt cos i did nothing wrong. But there is a change of course and i should agree it happens naturally. Honestly i felt pissed a bit. Hes a really nice guy but i dont think i would want to be with a man who thinks like this.
What a shame, we were happy together and i could have really loved him if he allowed me to. Anyway, im moving on. Hi, I am a woman of color and I am dating a Swedish man. We met online about three months ago. I find him confusing, jealous, a bit controlling but,overall, he is very polite, intelligent, tall and handsome, and dresses very well. At this point, he says he is in love with me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me.
Sometimes, he text many times during the day every day professing his love for me. I find his attitude strange, to say the least. I thought he was mentally disturbed. I must admit he scared the!!!! I tried to end it with him several times but he continues texting saying how much he loves me. He would text until I felt like I would vanish from exhaustion. We are still dating and now marriage is in the picture. Too soon in my book. He ends his messages with kisses hugs. Your messages has helped me a lot in understanding Swedish men, at least mine.
This is so true, everything you wrote. How do Swedish men perceive women who goes to bed with them after only two dates? If you call it dates. First meeting was fika, then second meeting involved movies and dinner and some wine. Things got really going well and we did the deed. A Swedish guy approached me at a club one night.
We had some few conversations like getting to know each other and after that, we found ourselves kissing and going to his place. You can call it probably a one night stand but when I had to leave, he was begging me to stay. I was really flattered because I do really like the guy and want to know him better.
I told him I have to go because of some appointment and told him that I will be back after. And I went back to him just like I told him. One whole day of waiting but there are still no call nor text from him.
I do really like him so what I did was texted him. He replied after almost a day saying: Sorry for the late reply. Do I need to check on you daily?. I was really pissed but I kept my composure trying not to get mad at him or scare him off. Again, I am pissed but I tried to expand the conversation again. It seems pretty annoying because he was really sweet and all cute when we were together. Even hold my hands while sleeping. But after that, it seems like nothing happened.
Should I try to avoid him and delete his number and not to talk to him again? You may use these HTML tags and attributes: Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail. Dating rules in Sweden, or how and where you can meet a Swedish guy or girl Posted on March 13, by Antonia.

Blindly following every emotion that floats through us is a surefire way to land in hot water with relationships. Hope that makes sense….
I do agree with this article in my present circumstance. I said I felt like I was falling in love for the first time I also am surging with bonding hormones mind you Guy freeked out, and is running. Should not matter how I feel versus how he does. Yeah but I mean all of us are egotistical and want the girl to say it first.
We try retain dominance when we can, sometimes it is not the case. I wanted to wear the pants in the end hahah. I will never hide my feelings. If I feel it I am going to say it.
I said it free of any expectation, not to hear a return response. Separate of rules or who should say it first…. Picasso really said that? And I agree… but I have a very wide image of what a Goddess is…. These days, lots of girls would equate being a Goddess with being a diva.
That would be… a mistake. I have been with my boyfriend for a little over 9 months now. Neither one of us have been married before. We spend just about everyday together. We go hiking, movies, dinner and trips. I attend all of his family functions, holidays, birthdays, etc. We have so much in common and really enjoy each others company.
Our relationship just comes naturally and easy to us. One website says the man should say i love you first and another says the woman should. I think more importantly is to ask, why am I saying I love you?
A lot of people express this for reassurance and have expectations. I thin personally I will wait for the guy to say it first. In the mean time, actions speak louder than words. I think a man will better appreciate my expression of love through actions rather than words. I think it should be from men first.. The problem with I love you is that it means so much, especially when we say it to someone else.
I mean, I can love my cat, my house, even the chinese leftovers in the fridge, but when I tell him, the word somehow gets heavier. Alright, I once had a boyfriend back in college who said those three words way too soon. As in we were only dating for two weeks kind of too soon. I was not in love with him. So why do we say it? So when IS a good time to say it? Do you wait for him? My experience has been that girls want to say it first for emotional stability or whatever reasons they have.
But before you do, dig deep inside yourself and make sure you are saying it because you want him to know and not because you want to hear him say it back. Just remember he might be going through the same thing as you too, wondering about timing and such forth. What I recommend is dropping hints here and there but not too many or too obviously! When you, as a couple, are ready, it will come out then you can breathe deep and not have to worry about it any more.
Now that was a refreshing answer — and coming from a guy. He just might not be ready. Now I have to figure out how to get him back…or give him up! I commented a while ago…I said I love you first….
I have really learned a lot and thank you for your comments. Granted saying it first is not necessarily a bad thing—expressing yourself is great— but often saying it quickly ie: My boyfriend broke up with me in November We had a great relationship but in truth I was needy.
We did a lot together—running, riding, cooking, talking, movie going, dreaming… so breaking up also represented loss of a friend. When he asked me to stay his friend, it was a tough decision. This required and continues to require huge discipline on my part! I did that to be successful in friendship and ended up with great love. He often initiates, and speaks in terms of forever.. She is putting her best love on the field for him.
The reason for that is because, she thought it was love, not understanding her partner feelings fully. I think it takes the pressure off women and the risk of getting rejected and humiliated for saying love and guy not saying it back. He said it first after two weeks of dating and swore he meant it. I had a talk with him but he kept swearing that he was in love. I said I loved my current boyfriend last night first, for the first time, and he freaked out, and never sid anything back.
But hes still talking to me. I want him to mean it, because I do. When a guy says it first sometimes it can mean they have a hidden agenda. I think having a connection and truly caring for another person is what matters not who says it first. I was very nervous and scared. What if he backs away and pushes me away? Because he would have by now because how i feel is so damn obvious. So i was a nervous wreck when i got on web-cam with him LDR. I find this kinda humorous.
He very tenderly says why are you hiding from me? I told him Ive been wanting to tell him for so long now. Tes, I think you gave him no opportunity to say it.
And when you asked him to agree with you that you put too much pressure on him. I took away a couple things: That makes sense in the context of my relationship and speaking of context…. My boyfriend and were introduced by a mutual friend who used to run with each of us separately and connected us to expand our running circle. We ran a couple times and then met for a glass of wine, then dinners, running, skiing, snowboarding, amazing sex , climbing, camping, short trips…and now holidays and family affairs too for a year now.
We woke up this morning together and either I just imagined it or it seemed like there was a lot of pressure in the air. Until that everything was easy, sexy, and even goodbyes were smooth.
I said would you agree? He said well I do. What does I care about you very much mean in this context? Is that an appropriate response or is it defensive and immature? How long can a relationship be generally good very good before a guy wants to say I love you? I have been so long googling on this subject.. Am going through a stange relationship…. I appreciate your comments.
But I would say that a lot of women who say it first do it and then later regret it since they start to wonder: Would he have said it? Does he really love me or did he just say it because I said it?
As for homosexual couples, this still applies. There are exceptions and I am acknowledging that. What about homosexual relationships?
Who says it first, the woman or the woman? The man or the man? My current bf said to me: Why should the woman wait? I wait…and I make sure he deserves my love before I open up my mouth even if he happens to say it first. I was the person who asked this question. I just wanted to report that I ended up saying it. I only said it in the past few weeks, though. He was very happy that I said it. He already knew that he loved me and I loved him.
It was one of those cases where both of us felt it, but no one made the move. I agree with you still, Eric, about taking things in context. But if someone is barely getting a pulse from a guy — I would say hold off. This post is greatly appreciated, it has given me a different point of view to think about, and I ultimately reached a certain piece of mind by the end of the article, and all the comments. This statement caught me by surprise. This could be a misinterpretation or romanticizing on my part.
Yes, let me clarify. I do not say it as easily or freely. What is most important is his feeling towards you and the depth of the relationship itself. This has been interesting to read. Eric, I highly appreciate your tactful, concise and analytical approach. But with a partner, you need to feel that you are special to them in full, that they would still want you if you made a mistake or many mistakes, would stick by you through thick and thin.
Just a long-winded, sorry thought. Thank you for saying this, I think you you make a really good point and you said it beautifully. Love is a word, in this case expressing our best and most complex emotion. If you are the type of person who can be happy knowing you might love someone who might just not be there yet with you, say it. The way the person handles those words may actually tell you an awful lot about them in the long run. I am glad that people are commenting on this because this bring a community of people together to weigh in on an answer.
Let me clarify something about Ask a Guy: And for every woman who has asked me relationship question she is struggling with, most of the time I have had guys ask me the same question. So, to me, the gender of the person does not matter to me nearly as much as the question itself.
The question itself exposes what the person asking is probably experiencing internally their fears, frustrations, confusions, etc.
Also true that not all guys will run or fear commitment. Did it freak him out, no. Yea he didnt say it back, which was a good thing becuase he wasnt ready. When he was ready he said it. If you dont, then pay more attention to your guy. Every relationship is different. Who cares if a chick says it first.
If you say it and he doesnt run away, good. If he stays around, hes in the relationship because he is on the verge of love, he just may not be able to say it yet. Both this post and the comments all make one general assumption — that women are needy, clingy, emotional violatile creatures in need of constant validation of both themselves and their relationships.
Kim I did the same thing… I said it several times in our last meeting.. We agreed to stop writing as I was a married woman. And he died suddenly and I still do not know if he ever loved me! I advise this on one notion: Before I start into my response, let me say that I do appreciate you giving your comment.
At the very least, it would be a bad idea to just blindly make a comment that could be volatile without considering the effect it could have. She got my opinion and now she has yours too. The truth of the matter with this section is that people are going to do whatever they feel like doing anyway. But if someone asks for my opinion, I will give them reasonable things to consider to the best of my ability. Let me clarify this a bit. Contemplate a few different points of view.
Pfft what a load of rubbish! I recently had a woman I really care for say it to me on the fourth date in a very warm embrace and it felt so good I said I love you too without hesitation. I dated a woman for a year and a half and I told her I love you a few times and she never said it back once. It broke my heart so much.
