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.
We may not have good words for ‘dating’ but we certainly have a great word for that spouse-without-a-wedding-ring we have back home: “samboer.” Which means “together-liver.” And yes, that word works better in Scandinavian.
You may feel like since there are so many people dating in Sweden that you can’t possibly find a single person who you will be attracted to on a free dating site…
You’ll find that the people on these websites are: By taking your love life into your own hands and becoming a member of a Swedish dating site, you are making an effort to meet some of the best people online.
But dating was like a foreign language to me – as it is when I watch American movies and television shows.
So I might have gotten the dating “rules” of your country (which might *not* be USA and therefore not part of those American movie rules) entirely wrong and am thus making a big thing out of nothing.
If at all possible, try to stick close to Stockholm, the city that has the highest number of singles compared to any other city in the country. If you tend to go for the tall, blond-haired, blue-eyed beauties, Sweden will not disappoint.
Rest assured, when you sign up for one of the online dating sites I mention below, you will see what I am talking about.
