We ate a nice meal of chicken and rice, and then we talked for a bit. A couple weeks later, she told me she was seeing someone.A guy whose name I never learned, of whom she and her friends had never spoken, and of whom I didn’t even see any evidence of on Facebook. If you want to say “I’m not interested,” then just say it!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.
In Sweden, the equality between men and women isn’t only important when it comes to law and order, but also when you’re dating.
Fika is the magical word to each Swedish relationship.
So if you don’t like coffee either you pretend you do or you die old and lonely… While in France it’s two, and even three kisses in Switzerland on the cheek when you meet someone, not so in Sweden!
It is just as usual for a woman to ask a man out, as it is the opposite.
In fact, many think it is necessary if there should be any dating at all.
