An easy seafood linguine packed with prawns, squid and mussels
That makes me feel like I owe them something, which is very uncomfortable if you try to date someone. Yes I do enjoy getting a beer payd for now and again, but the next round he better let me pay. And yes, some chivlary is nice but not too much, if a man try to pull out my chair it makes me laugh, do hold the door up, but next time when I walk thrpugh the door first, let me hold it up to him.
If the guy pays everyr bill and open all the doors he will make me feel like he looks down on me. Swedish S — Appreciate your honestly.
I spoke to as many Swedish girls girlfriends that I could find and ask them about dating in Sweden. Most agreed with this list though of course, this does not apply to everyone. Why is being equal on even the little things matter so much? I agree, most girls here do get almost angry if you treat them as if they are a lesser being, with that I mean paying for everything, holding up doors even if its not needed, pulling out chairs etc.
To me as a swedish guy it almost feels like doing all that, it means that one would think that women are not capable of doing that themselves. Speaking as a guy, I do think swedish women want everything to be equal, I mean what womwn wouldt want it?. But I think women here appreciate it more if you treat them to things that really matter, like maybe taking them to a trip to some tropical island on your treat. A swedish woman could afford going on her own, but if her man buys the whole trip himself it really means that he wants to spend a very romantic vacation with her and only her.
I beleive that is something that swedish women appreciate a lot more than holding up some door as if she was 95 years old and could not do it on her own. Agree with Swedish S — if a guy wants to pay for dinner, drinks or similar, it does feel like I owe him something and start to wonder what does he want in return. So, — never again: Hi, I am not swedish, however I am in sweden.
Looking for a date with swedish female is a dream for me, since I am brown in color…. I just want to tell that for above topic, females do expect something from their man and which is OK as per me.
Any comments welcome and also any female for date in stockholm is welcome. I stay near Central stockholm. This is all a little strange for me! But I realize that men and women are not the same. If I thought that, I would be a lesbian. It is the differences between us what makes me love men. Female friends… I have plenty. Sure we all can pretty much do the same things except carrying babies hehe. But I believe that men are more capable for certain tasks and women for other tasks.
We are a good match, a compliment of each other. Like, if a group of us goes to have dinner, the guys pay for the bill. As a rule, I always offer to pay for myself, but they sometimes even get offended for not being considered real gentlemen.
Equality to me means that no one is better than the other. That I get the love and respect I deserve and they get the same from me. As an American woman who has a lot of Swedish male friends—and spent some time over there—I really love the fact that things like the money situation in a date setting are seen that way.
I never did get why one person namely the man is always expected to fork out the cash. If I have it on me, cool beans. You guys go way to deep into th subject. I was just thinking about going to sweden to see if the women are still women.
Not like America, where all the women are pretty much men. American women have nothing to offer besides their coochi but the worst by far are the Korean women. Try to revert back to the s or 50s. Cook, Clean and take care of the children. Thanks a lot America now I have to go overseas to try and find a suitable wife! And why, in your opinion, should a man be obliged with supporting the whole family? How many men are there on the whole planet who would earn enough to support the whole family?
Has the feminist movement completely passed you by??! Are you a caveman in disguise? A partner should be your equal not your subordinate. Heck, why are you even looking at Sweden then? No real idea what your on about to be honest.
The way you type and how you talk about that you will only sleep with swedish women and never think of them again suggests that you are very immature. Maybe that is your problem. Personally, I think Swedes have the right idea. It is almost required. There are always a few exceptions… but this is from quite a few years of partying, and dating experience here If a woman wants to be equal.. Not all gentlemen type things have to be about equality.
To me at least. I have a question for you. If you were in Venezuela, adapting to the culture and all of that… what would you be looking for in a woman? Someone that is completely exotic, very latin in culture and that speaks limited english, someone that looks a little exotic according to where you come from but not as much, openminded with culture and speaks fluent english, or someone that is closer to your culture like blonde, and native english speaker??
Thats easy, I would definatly go for the latin woman that is open minded with culture and fluent in english. Because I have a thing for latin women so less exotic or not does not bother me in the least. The major reasons for my choice is that she is open minded about culture and speaks english well. It makes it so much easier to get to know her and understand her. Without that it would be hard to aim for a serious and long lasting relationship.
Cant beleive that some people still think of women like that or even want women to be like that. To me, that line of thought is like considering women to be cattle or something. Pretty much the same idiocy as racism. No cure at all…the cursse of humanity. Thanks for your time. I just have 2 questions. Are you ready to move abroad if you find the ONE guy?.
If you are ready to move abroad then things might be easier if you are hellbent on meeting a swedish guy. Because otherwise you would have to find someone online that is willing to move to venezuela, it is a big step for either of you. If you are ready to move to sweden then I recomend this dating site http: From what you have learned about swedish males so far, what would be the biggest mistake for a swedish guy to make when going for a latin woman?.
I do not have plans to move abroad for now. For some reason i think that swedish guys are worth the effort. A big mistake is also expecting the woman to take the initiative. I know for a fact that Swedish guys are very polite, but a latin man shows politeness in different ways. So, the girl might think that swedish politeness is actually rudeness.
Just some information about it would do it. Lack of chivalry is basically the mistake. Now that we are talking about mistakes, the obvious question from me is the same: From what you have learned about latin women so far, what would be the biggest mistake for a latin woman to make when going for a swedish man?
Im currently dating girls from Russia, and former soviet countries. If you dont belive me, Welcome and get bored. I fully understand your point and your draw to swedish males. It is the same for me. I really love latin women for example. Curves at the right places and all that. Not to mention those big brown eyes and that firm but reasonable attidude towards men, and that dark hair. I hope you find your guy and even if he is shy about certain things, I can only recomend that you should not be.
About latin women, how do I show that I am interssted in a serious way?. As in Im not looking for a one night stand but something serious. Is there some way that is more or less a standard way to show it throughout south america and southern europe?.
I am very blunt, even by swedish standards, what kind of bluntness would a latin girl expect? But this is the general idea of dating: He is charming, funny and makes her feel at ease. They shake hands and kiss on the chick to say good bye. SMS are ok too. It could be a group date or just the 2 of them, depending on her and his personality. Coffee or outdoors is good. Sadly but surely she will either be a little late or not be ready yet when being picked up. Random compliments are very good.
They talk about everything and HE pays for the girl. Maybe they talk about when or where to meet up again. Kisses on the chick are still going. When he feels that she is ready, he will ask: Would you like to be my girlfriend? She might immediately say yes or she could ask for a few days to think about it.
She had already thought about that way before he asked. Real kisses are acceptable now. Family is very important. I know it seems very strange to you all of this. But that is the right approach if you want a serious relationship with a latina. It might be normal for other cultures but down here is not acceptable. That would make her an easy girl and she would probably cheat on him easily.
She will make you feel that you are a king. Breakfast in bed, small details here and there, defend you over everything, putting you in first place when it comes to choose between you and work, etc. For those who are from a different culture, that type of an attitude could seem as fake, forced by the males, stupidly submissive, pushover, etc.
We dream with finding the right guy to be able to do this with. We are hopelessly romantic. Allthose procedures in themselves does not seem too bad to be honest. Except for the real kissing part that does not happen untill its official.
I have a soft spot for kissing and if I meet a girl that I am not atleast allowed to kiss then I always figure that she is not interessted in me. It is a big contrast to what I am used to. Over here it is like this, you meet, you do it. And if you like each other you keep on meeting. But it is good to know that things can be slow. In a way it can be alot better because you will really get to know the person before anything serious starts.
I love all that internet macho crap lol. But i digress sorry. Maybe this is where the average swedish men go wrong? Stand up for yourselves. Swedish Girls Sucks Are you a Swedish male? Would you ever want somebody generalizing your mom or sister?
No matter where you go in this world, there are people with good or bad behavior. That is the truth. Do you think all women from former Soviet nations have the best intentions for you? Ask yourself first, are you giving women the kind of relationships they are looking for? We must look within first, before critizing others. Dano Are you getting ready for a Rap Music convention?
That is what communication is all about! Deepsoul…Oh trust me on this one my friend.. I spent 6 years in yahoo chat rooms and 2 more blogging,and freely admit to being an antagonist lol. Björn I have a question for you another one lol. My swedish friend has been ignoring me. He says hi to others and starts talking to them, then moves to another little group of friends and does the same thing. He has done that on different occasions as well.
But he always does that, he gives me attention and then ignores me. He wants me to play the cat or something. I wanna be the mouse, not the cat. There are more things involved, but that kinda sums it up. What do you think???? And all girls are not blonde, we have a lot of different haircolors, it mey be so that we have some kind of blonde orginal color.. We have the best time together, chat, email, etc. Although he can also ignore me trough email and msn. Pretty much everything on that list is exaggerated.
If there is any swedish male that has all those flaws, it wont be because he is swedish, it would be because he is mentally disturbed lol. It should be proof enough that swedish males are not quite so bad as that list would have you beleive. We drink alot, but that is something we enjoy. But we most certainly are capable of talking to someone without alcohol. However, if that someone is a person that I dont really enjoy talking to, then I need to be drunk LOL.
Seems like a very weird guy to me, if you already know each other then he has no reason to act shy. Dont think any normal guy would be shy to talk to a girl that he already knows and talks to reguraly otherwise.
Does he speak spanish? Perhaps he does not like your friends, its not that uncommon that people dont like each others friends. You should just ask him why to be honest. About only wanting to be the mouse, I can see your point.
Björn True about the mouse! He is kinda weird lol but to be honest that is one of the things that attracts me to him. I need to pay more attention if the language is the problem. I really think he is playing some game. I think he ignores me so i go all crazy thinking why did he do that to me if we just had a great conversataion the other day?
That way I would be going after him like a cat and he will be safe from rejection maybe. So that makes me be angry with him, but then he comes and does a nice thing to me and I feel all happy again… weird.
I do things for him, but i have to realize that he does things for me too. They are usually bigger than mine, so i know he cares about me. My conclusion is that I think he knows what he is doing and he is using psychology with me.
Like i said, there are more things involved in this soap opera lol. But the ignoring part is what has been bugging me the most. The majority of the American people would actually make fun of them. That is why comedians make skits out of their behavior. Deepsoul — Oh yes i used to hunt them down and antagonise them into exploding, which was never hard it used to cheer up the chatrooms as some of the things they came out with were truly hilarious! Seems to me that he might be careful and take things slow to make sure things are in line with what you told in how to pick up a latin woman.
He might just be concentrating in how to do that and then take it too far. Cant really blame him for that, I mean how do you know when to try to kiss a girl if things have to start out as if being only friends but at the same time the idea is to only get together as a couple? It will be hard to know the difference if you are used to atleast being able to get a few kisses hehe. This is not a escort site lol.
If you need a swedish blonde girl I recomend that you try to find some site that offers them for a price. But beyond that, you will have to work your charms.
And just a tip since alot of foreigners seems to get this wrong. Just because some hot girls is sun bathing topless at some local beach does NOT mean she is for sale.
Western women,not just swedes etc,are seen as total promiscuious sluts! Probably turn up some really funny stories,as well as a deep insight into how middle eastern and Indian men expect western women to react to them.
Björn You might be right. Or it could be too that he only wants friendship with me and I misinterpret some of the things he does thinking that they mean semething else. At least he does not have a girlfriend. Dano I totally agree with you. It is so sad but true. Maybe the reason for that is foreign girls for ex. Then people think them as sluts. But that is not the case. They do not open their legs and wait for you,Rahul. I read all posts and thanks to everyone sharing opinions.
I can share my experience in Sweden too. I agree that Swedish males are gorgeous, in shape and well-dressed. My swedish male friends are aso not good at going to girls and talk.
Maybe it is due to their previous experiences with swedish girls. Some of them say swedish girls act stupid in relationships. Some think spanish or latin girls are hotter. I guess it is because latins and mediterraneans express their feelings better and make men feel more like a man. First off, I will say your statement is ridiculous and offensive! As India is a large country, and people practice different ways of social interaction, you strongly prove a lack of any skills!
Recognize that women are not objects. Take some lessons on how to present yourself to others. First impressions are lasting ones! Just learn how to respect others, as you would want to be. I strongly suggest that you take some courses on western society, as your preconceived notions are just fictional. If you go to Sweden, or the majority of the world, with your current mentality, you will find it difficult to make any healthy relationships in general. Yes, it is true that there are some people who are rather ethnocentric, but the majority are not.
Overall, I can speak for myself, and many who I know, who really like British people and the rest of the world. I can imagine that the other Americans were probably equally harrassing the same people as you, Dano lol.
My family is pretty much military, and there is a long, traditional line of it. However, I can tell you that many of the friends they have made, or married, were from other cultures. I guess your conversations with them can be considered foreign policy? Think I might have mentioned balls — anyway why are so many men so wet? Has feminism emasculated them? Why in particular should the gorg Swedish males be lacking in the balls dept? Though had to say a v drunk and not gorg at all Swede did start talking to me in a bar in Stockholm.
Unfortunately it was about Man U so I quickly tuned out! I like a bit of cockiness at least it shows some get up and go. I like a challenge and all but…. I am a guy from Argentina, I have been reading all the messages and I am sure that swedish guys suffer about this article as much as if I would be a swedish guy.
I love Swedish women. Anton you are right! Though I think that some things of this article may be true, I do not fall into generalizations. There is one thing true: Youre women are wanted by everybody and that hurts! As a western man I think it is up to you to defend what it is yours as the vikings used to do, that is what men do,just defend what is yours. I do not want that swedish beauty to be lost! Defend what is yours! It is up to your women to understand that they do no have the worst men in the world.
They are handsome amd more civilized than others. I love you Sweden! Really nice post Sapphire and lets hope more Swedish women will replay on your post. I agree with you on many things but I think Swedish guys are almost the same as others who live in Europe. I can say guys here in Ireland or in Poland are similar to Swedish.
Not all ofcourse as i do belive, not all Swedish guys are the same. I had long time ago a Swedish girl with Norwich origins and she told me that Swedish girls are as more intrested with foregin guys as Swedish guys with foregin women. On first place are career and friends mostly other males. Swedish girls do not need 24 hour attention from guy side but they need respect and understanding from guys side.
Also they want their man be not only a lover but also a good friend. Swedish girls also dont like when guys paying most of the time for everything and they want to share bills etc even if you like it or not. What i noticed when i was in beautiful city Göteborg is that many young people very rare spoke to each other. Couples could go for a walk and do long distance without any word! Only girls talked to each other same as bouys to other boys. Next year or in two i wanna move to Stockholm and live there.
I would like to hear more about swedish girls here what they like and dislike and what is important for them in relationships. Thank you all for attention and waiting for replays: If you mean me Sara then write how Swedish girls are: I just wrote about Swedish girls from Göteborg. Also i found a website where one guy from USA moved to europe and wrote posts about european women and here is post about Swedish Women: In my visit to Sweden I did find that they certainly find different cultures very attractive.
I am a naturalized US citizen born in Mexico with my family ancestry mostly from Spain. Life its not so bad in the US for me, but I still have to work for it if I want to meet someone nice.
In here US I would say that the blonde hair blue eyed guy would be more exotic and possibly more attractive as someone that is olive skinned dark haired dark eyed like me. Just for the fact that its not so common here. She is a commodity and me as the guy I have to prove my value to her from the start. In sweden, it was just plain ridicoulous, akin to shooting fish in a barrel. Latin guys are not that common, and just by being there at all I had their attention.
They would be very happy that im just talking to them and some of them displayed this nervouness shyness around me towards me during initial contact. Most were happy I chose them over the other countless pretty girls there. In there I definitively had an edge over the local men, both as a foreigner, and possibly as someone that by their standards is a bit exotic looking.
It took no work to meet new friends over there. I could say whatever I wanted almost and it would work well. I had such a good experience, I am now learning the language through live mocha, and will make the scandinavian countries a yearly thing for me at least.
Ill make sure Im in even better shape too for good measure as well. Latin guy — so,like the Grand banks are prime fishing ground for American fishermen — Scandinavia is about to become your main shagging ground? Please visit often,and wear lots of that Mexican gold religious stuff and bling. It is more interesting to know about the perception and practice of dating community in Europe than the blog post on Swedish girls.
As an Indian I could say that three is a definite biological divide between men and women. Understanding, supporting, appreciating and respecting each other and their values is the bottom line of success in married life. Legal rights and liberated thoughts do take the backbench and will not contribute to conjugal happiness.
I would appreciate your real life contributions. Uh, seriously, Dano, a very limited amount of Americans speak like that… and even then, mostly only in hardcore rap music. On a side note: Being Asian, it disappoints me that men see women as not only objects, but request that strangers fulfill their demands without question.
Do you have any Swedish female friends? We would love to hear more about you and why you want to move to Sweden. Because of my open opinions and thoughts I will contribute to a happier relationship with my husband through expressed understandings. Legal protection gives me the comfort to know that if my husband dies I am not left on the streets to fend for myself via a life insurance policy nor is he if I die.
A hundred years ago, women had no property inheritance or financial stability guaranteed by law. THAT decreases marital instability in relationships. I would love to meet some americans here in Sweden. Please send me an e-mail! Loverof—Have you read some of the comments below videos on youtube lately? Expectations of American man applied for?: Anyone fancy doing a Brit version of this in response?
I agree with Celine, a hilarious read. However, I have known many foreign guys in Sweden at universities, mostly from the Anglo-Saxon world, and almost none have been at all successful in the Swedish love department. Some Swedish girls are OK with Catholic, American or Muslim values neither of which respect women very well , but most are not.
Swedish values raise the bar for both men and women. I obviously cook and clean, but I also do renovations and fix computers. Such skills, along with a certain degree of intellectual maturity, seem to have been taken for granted by a lot of Swedish girls that I have associated with.
To master a language enough to make jokes and be the life of a party usually takes about 10 years of practice. All you foreigners here, can you tell a joke like Robert Gustavsson? Totally agree with you. I have lived for almost one year, here in Sundsvall I see many African men and Swedish girls couples. Most African guys dating Swedish girls, are somewhat confident and feeling good about themselves. Thats my two points. Dacke — Thanks for your comment. If that is the case, I can see that being a big issue here.
Vincent — Confidence and feeling good about yourself: Shyness and nervousness are acceptable, but be proud of yourself. You should have no problems getting a book deal!
Your writing is genuine, refreshing and truly entertaining. As an American man, I found your site through a referral. Keep up the good work and tell the guys to stop drinking booze like Swedish fish! Sounds like i need to go to Sweden considering all the men over there are litte pusies. What the worst answer you can get from them?
But overall nice article. Come and show them how a REAL man gets women! Been outside your country yet? Things can be very different when you come to other countries and cultures. You could come here and have a really succesful time. I am an Indian-American guy who came from a Hindu family but later became a Christian. I also attended a Swedish-American Lutheran college, but was more into the very exotic types of women at that time.
Right now I have an acute case of the Vikette fever ;-. But I do not speak a word of Swedish. And I am a pretty devout Christian, want a large family like kids , believe that men should be chivalrous, and want to share my faith with others especially Muslims and Atheists. Yet at the same time I have always been extremely progressive.
I would want a woman to be highly educated and to work outside the home as I would want her to have some independence if something happened to me. I also believe in evolution, sex-education, reproductive rights, and gender equality. And I live a very ecofriendly lifestyle, am concerned about climate change, and believe in universal healthcare.
Swedish girls are not only beautiful but they are so intelligent and sophisticated too. They read, travel, and have independent minds. And Sweden seems like such a nice place to raise a family because education and healthcare are phenomenal and not so expensive. I truly admire the cohesive and corruption-free societies that Scadanavians have built.
But could I fit in? Many Christian girls in the US who want this are waaay too conservative, often superstitious, and do not think critically. Are there Swedish girls who have the best of both worlds who might be into my type? Ahh yes, and finally, I am not looking to get married right away as I want some time for my own development. But I also do not want to just hookup and definitely do not want to get girls drunk to do so.
Some girls will become devout Muslims when they marry guys from those countries because it is exotic, the girls are naive, and the education system and media are too politically correct to criticize it in the way they have lambasted Christianity for decades.
And some like African men, even asylum seekers with criminal records because they believe in the myth, because of the taboo nature, or because they think that they can be some kind of agent of social change. But are there the kinds who will be interested in the kinds of guys that their parents might also like? I had fun reading all these remarks about people from other culture. One thing is certain.
I like blond men and brown haired men. I think blond men are more chivalrous than majority of other men. And I like the Scandinavian man features too. I am a white Latin woman, with medium brown hair blond during childhood , big brown eyes and nice features.
I would love to meet a blonde or light brown haired man who likes white latin women. I have a latin personality and gentle nature. And I have a nice figure and very attractive facial features.
My email address is sheila at yahoo dot com. I would like to know names of websites to date scandinavian men. I would like to meet one Scandinavian man. And I would like to have comments of people.
I am very liberal in my thinking and I respect all kinds of opinions as long as they do not harm other people. People have different personalities and ways of thinking.
That is what makes each of us interesting. I am a Swedish girl, and ever since I was little, I fantasized about an American man. So the real question is how to fix one?! You come to America, I go to Sweden.. I looked up that group! That is some scary group!!
Hate missing posts here! I seem to have a fan club lol. DS — Why you talking to truth about MS13? It was me who mentioned them lol. P Hope your well hun. Does anyone know of the best ways to meet beautiful Swedish women around my area?
I hate you all. Well this site left me with my mouth open and amazed! This is not possible! Is it uncommon for swedish women to stay in the same bed at night with a best friend that is male? Is casual sex with a male friend if the women has a boyfriend, that is not in the country common if they are good friends? Just need a honest opinion from a 3rd party, thanks. Jake — Yep, totally agree with Dano. D I can smell the humour all the way from here btw.
Thank you for the replies, read all the negatives on swedish women thats why i asked the last question. I truly admire the cohesive and corruption-free societies that Scandinavians have built. Some girls will become devout Muslims when they marry guys from those countries because it is exotic, the girls are naive, and the education system and media are too politically correct to criticize it in the way they have lambasted other religions for decades. As one of the swedish men, I just have to agree on the fact that we need to grow some balls, absolutely!
When it come to chivalry I would say that it varies from man to man, but more chivalry in general would be nice. However, dont show to much chivalry, it can backfire! When it comes to men drinking way to much i have to say that the younger the man, the more he drinks. As said above, dont get wasted! They require you to be able to have a intelligent conversation! In sweden the comfort zone is about an arms lenght and an inch or two.
What chances does a good-looking Asian man with most of the qualities so I have been told by most white girls in San Francisco, which are a fairly diverse sample the author mentioned? Do they hold any prejudice against Asian men? I think the effort should be put into girls who have the same expectations.
I would love to meet my expectation in a Swedish girl! I would not wanna be together with a man that think men are more worth than women. Helga Men ARE more valuable than women. I have been to Stockholm in summer and spent 4 days there. It was an amazing experience for me. Yes, I got obsessed with Swedish women but it was not looks that attracted me most.
Excluding the German girl who was staying in the same hotel, at least 3 Swedish girls were interested in me during my short visit which is such a record. They expressed interest in a polite and nice way but for some reason I thought they are just being cautious how stupid of me — lol. I am not obsessed with Swede girls any more but it would be amazing if I have a serious relationship with a Swede girl: I love to make friends with anyone from Scandinavia whether male or female. The first thing we men need to understand is that women are no aliens.
They are females of the human species with the same emotions, desires and needs you have. Read something intesting to talk about and then meet some women and be interest in THEM, not their bodies. I am an exchange student in a small Swedish town.
I have been here for almost 6 months and have a lot of feedback regarding this article. I do feel, however, that we must be really careful with describing people in this manner as to avoid generalizations.
Equality is really nice. Really, if you have fun and feel confident that she also enjoyed meeting you, the other person will notice you and contact you. This brings the next phase in the equation: Then you will see her in school or in a party and you can act as if nothing had happened. This is hard to achieve in latin countries without some sort of sexual tension or strings attached. Many of them fail to even hook up because they get too drunk, try too hard, treat local girls as they treat girls in their country, or simply do not assimilate into the dating mode.
This kind of keeps a sense of interesting aura about me that the Swedish girls I have been with definitely like. I have some really close swedish guy friends here so I guess you could say that when I date girls I kind of follow their steps. I also fractured my ankle 3 weeks ago playing football and therefore am not going to bars as much.
Some psychologists say that when you help someone you release endorphins and therefore, if you are good looking and have crutches while getting drunk in an afterparty, chances are you that will do well.
Guys, no means no! Big mistakes happen when you see a guy invite a girl to a party or whatever and after a refusal, he keeps on trying. Not cool… Remember that sometimes girls just go out for a drink or to catch-up with a friend, not for the whole thing.
Just be genuine, funny, and actually enjoy yourself. So if you remember her during, say wednesday at My swedish girl friends tell me that it is really nice to be acknowledged outside those scenarios and that it gets you lots of points.
However, I have noticed that it is easier hook-up with girls from bigger cities like Stockholm and Gothenburg that study here. Kind of a bigger city mentality. Hope this is not a bad generalization. Finally, during one of those afterparties I met a very nice girl from Gothenburg. She is also a crazy party girl who always gets wasted like I do so she is also being very cautious.
So things are going well and I am proud of not having just thrown myself at her like I would in a latin country. I am being careful and so is she. Swedish girls are over-rated. The guys are even more ridiculous. I have many solid Swedish friends male and I rip on them almost every time we go out. Zero game, and zero balls.
They whine about wanting a wife, kids etc. The swedish girls are the most amazing girls you can ever meet. I always wanted to spend my life with a swedish girl cherishing every moment with her. February 12, at During the day they can be quite arrogant, but once they have consumed alcohol — they do not have any standards and also seem to have taste for middle eastern gentlemen because they believe them to have money..
This is something swedish women has embraced and is also a sign of freedom from predjudice and norms. Something women from other parts of the world should strive for. But it makes it so much more enjoyable as a swedish man when a swedish women chooses you even tho she has the other options at hand.
So we embrace it aswell. This site describes Swedish girls as some kind of animal, like a breed. Swedish girls are some dark skinned while some others are blonde. We do definitely not like the very same thing, so please, stop. Hey Mike, I agree that Swedish women have made tremendous strides in equality compared to other nations. However, with that equality comes a cost. Everything that happens has a cost positive and negative, called externalities. We see as positive externalities: Negative externalities could be: Of course both types jokes are unacceptable but I see women act aggressively if someone makes a joke that related to women, eg.
I want to be Charlie Sheen; a depraved alcoholic and womanizer. I rarely hear the water cooler jokes about genderism but I have heard horrible jokes regarding ethnicity and religion at the office. From personal experience, I have never met a Swedish man that has intimidated me but I have met Swedish women who do. They come off aggressive with a bitchy streak. Okay, alright, you win!
But let me say this, I used to live in Minnesota, as well as in Sweden for a numbers of years. All these regions are full of Scandinavians. While it may be true that Swedish girls are prettiest; it is my humble opinion that upper mid-western American girls are not only pretty like their Scandinavian cousins, but also smart like many American girls, and I consider this a huge advantage that our American girls enjoy. So the bottom line is Swedish girls are pretty, American girls are pretty [since the beauty is in the eyes of beholder].
Everybody love blondes… in my case, since I was a child I was so fall in love of a blonde girl of my neighborhood. I have all need to have success… I am a gentleman first, but with so spicy latin hot blood in my veins…. I love to talk and really I have the balls to go to talk to the most beautiful girl of the night… actually I love to feel the adrenaline when I am walking to she and she is watching me coming to her!!!!
I dont care about to go to Sweden to find my blue eyes blonde girl of my dreams… I have been in Europe 3 times and I love it! Please dont come more to europe man, we cant afford to provide for your non-working ass.
Stay in Costa Rica for the love of god. Yes I have noticed this in pictures too. What is with the fake blond hair? Why do they do that? I know quite a few Swedish Canadians and none of them are blond. No one will be convinced. My guess is that Tourism board of Sweden hands out free bottles of hydrogen peroxide to local women to encourage tourism and fulfill the expectations of male tourists….
I was just offered a job in Sweden. Believe me gentlemen, I speak from experience. Angry and argumentative all the time. A word for the wise: Mike is absolutely right. People are always going on about how beautiful Swedish women are and all the guys want to come here, etc. That is one of the biggest deceptions of all. It is impossible to get passionately involved with Swedish women.
They do sex but not passion. They are scared to death of the kind of passion which makes you want to give yourself to someone or even to die for them. So they always hold back. She will not let him into her heart. Plus the women here are very opinionated and pushy — imitating the worst aspects of men and totally unfeminine. They may dress like women but you can see that they feel uncomfortable with their femininity and walk very awkwardly. If you cohabit with a Swedish woman you will be lucky to get a few years together or even less before she becomes bored with you and gets physically attracted to someone else, dumps you and just leaves, no matter how many kids you may have together.
These are just my observations. As soon as I saw through it which was after a few months I have avoided them like the plague! I have been observing carefully for more than a year. There are plenty of foreigners who have come here to get it together with a Swedish woman and then deeply regretted it. So let that be a warning. Looks are not everything — in fact they should take second place to what is in the heart.
Sadly there is little heart in Sweden. Many of the events are held in cities in the Rhine river region like Bonn, Koblenz, and Mainz but also pop up in other areas devoid of a flagship beer fest. Traditional festival this is not, but it does offer up interesting and unique brews and a fun atmosphere for a few days at a time. May 17 — May 28, This smaller town in Franconia near Nuremberg is home to the oldest beer festival in the world — the Erlangen Bergkirchweih.
June 29 — July 8, The capital of Lower Saxony puts on a festival each year that brings together rides, beer and shooting — a combination that might not be top of mind for some.
However, marksmen competitions are a tradition in many German towns and the Schützenfest is the most prominent across the country with 5, individuals competing, and traces its history back over years. While first and foremost a marksmen festival, the Hannover Schützenfest draws in visitors with five grand beer tents, hundreds of rides and games, a cornucopia of culinary options, and one hell of a parade that caps off the festivities. July 20 — July 30, Annafest has been celebrated in Forchheim, a quaint town in Upper Franconia between Bamberg and Nuremberg, since But what really makes it special is the abundance of large leafy trees that not only provide a lovely ambiance, but some much needed shade as well.
The local Kulmbacher-Mönschof brewery exports its beers globally and its brews are well known around the world. Began in by Kulmbacher as a way to promote the town and its rich beer history, Bierwoche moved venues this past year from the city centre to the Kulmbacher brewery grounds, which have a classic beer garden appeal. Thankfully throughout the years, this German beer festival continues to be focused fully on just one thing — beer.
Much like the diversity of this international city, the International Berlin Beer Festival features a round up of beers from around the globe, with a particular region in the spotlight each year. Expect traditional breweries intermixed with prominent craft brewers, giving drinkers the best of both worlds.
August 10 — August 20, Gäubodenvolksfest is a Bavarian beer festival in Straubing, a town east of Munich situated on the Danube River. What began as an agricultural event has morphed into an epic eleven-day festival featuring roller coasters, carnival games, parades, and seven beer tents serving litre beers from local breweries Karmeliten, Irlbacher, Röhrl, and Erl. The tents are on par with those at Oktoberfest seating upwards of 5, people, most notably the Ochsenbraterei Wenisch, which has a super cool carousel bar within the tent.
August 25 — August 28, The small Bavarian town of Oberstimm hosts an unassuming festival over the last weekend in August. Locals claim that the Barthelmarkt was an event introduced by their Roman founders in the first century BC as a market for cattle, and to this day the event features a livestock market on the last day of festivities.
August 25 — August 28, Like many of the German beer festivals covered already, the Limmersdorfer Lindenirchweih is yet another Bavarian fest. The small town lies in the middle of Bayreuth and Kulmbach in the Northern Franconia region.
And like any good German beer festival, there are varying legends as to how the tree came to be planted, though the festivals importance to the culture is undeniable — the town has requested the festival to be listed as a UNESCO cultural event. September 16, The town of Baiersdorf in Upper Franconia has two things going for it: To get the festivities going, the Horseradish Queen a title that one lucky lady holds for a year and the town Mayor mark the occasion and invite everyone to enjoy the local crop.
Unsurprisingly, everything revolves around horseradish: The festival dates back to when Bavarians were invited to partake in the lavish marriage celebration of Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen, for whom the Oktoberfest grounds, Theresienwiese, are named. Despite the fact that large portions of the six million visitors are tourists, Oktoberfest manages to maintain its traditional Bavarian charm.
September 28 — October 14, Not far from Munich, Stuttgart, the capital of Baden-Wurtemburg, puts on its own large-scale beer festival that overlaps Oktoberfest. The overall tone of this German beer festival is similar in many respects to Oktoberfest, with tents, rides and a ton of beer, yet the Stuttgart Cannstatter Volksfest has a stronger party vibe, particularly at night in the tents. Boasting the more rides and attractions than any other German beer festival in case you were wondering , the Freimarkt is the oldest fair in Germany with roots dating all the way back to Hamburg is a large city, second by population after Berlin, and is transected by the Elbe River and near the North Sea.
