My international friends from university asked me today to explain how dating works in Sweden.

Apparently they have trouble getting into the rules of the Swedish dating game.

Also try to add applications like Are You Interested or Zoosk on Facebook where you will find many serious people.

It’s not as easy as going up to someone and offer them a drink or ask them to dance.

Many people see this as too forward and will get defensive if they are approached in this way.

One of the most common places to find a partner is at a nightclub (or a mutual friend’s party), which may seem pretty obvious.

However, the way to meet someone there is more subtle.

But from my experience, this is one of the most common scenarios.

When I lived in Italy, I often got approached by different men who wanted to ask me out.

Many people regard those who only hang out in the bar as suspicious*. If you catch somebody’s eye, and the two of you look at each other for more than a second, then you’re good to start dancing with each other (at this point, you don’t even have to ask about the dance, you both know it’s coming).

From the moment the two of you start dancing, the rules aren’t as strict as before.

So be sure to pick your date from the country that matches your requirements. Above here you will find some Swedish sites, see the right menu for other Scandinavian countries. Some requires you to have a local mobile phone number for verification.
