Swedish dating norms

I have been contacted by more than one person wanting to date Scandinavian people or even marry one of us. Marrying a Scandinavian Let me answer the last question first: Yes, many of us choose not to get married but that doesn’t mean that we don’t live together or have children in well-established partnerships. And how do we procreate if we don’t date and don’t marry?Please register to participate in our discussions with 2 million other members - it's free and quick!

So the few times we have to use the word ‘date’ (usually to describe something foreigners do) we use the English word for it. So how do we figure on top of these lists of “happiest people in the world,” you wonder?

The Scandinavian word for ‘date’ is really old-fashioned and one my grandmother might have used but probably didn’t because I don’t think she dated either.

I know everyone is different but are there some general similarities or differences that are evident between American men and Scandinavian men in terms of dating? Weird, the comments in those articles (that have them) are a whole bunch of Swedish women who talk about how much better it is dating non-swedish men because they want all the chivalry, etc.

How is the dating scene different between American and the Scandinavian countries? We Americans need a guide Dating rules in Sweden, or how and where you can meet a Swedish guy (or girl) | Swedish love affair Swedish Culture & Dating | Dating Tips - Just read it and compare with yours... In many cases, sex comes first, then afterwards, if the couple agrees, they meet for coffee a couple of times, then after that they might start dating. I found the dating in northamerica so much better but, I guess, so old-fashioned. Some teenagers seem to start out exploring sex in a pretty adventuresome way with little attachment, aimed mainly at having fun with multiple partners and then branch into serial sex with a series of partners, in which the are relatively faithful to each other...and, if they are lucky, one of these relationships can blossom into a long-term committed relationship.

Now I know I have only been in Sweden a couple days (and will hopefully return permanently) but from reading various blogs and talking to Swedish girls, the dating system here is screwed up and really confusing.
