Swedish dating rules
It seems that dating in Sweden is done over email and chat rather than phone calls. Tinder, Match.com, Plenty of Fish and other big dating apps in Europe are big here.
Like the French, the Swedes do not always acknowledge whether they are dating and often go out for coffee without either partner being certain of whether the coffee run is an official date.
If the opportunity is there then great, but don’t be offended if your date demands to split the bill 50/50.
Sweden is very serious about being gender neutral and this is a good example.
Starting with a fika is a more casual way of meeting someone in private and getting to know them, without the pressure of doing something romantic which might be a bit intimate for some people so soon.
Coming from the UK, it’s very common that if you take someone to a restaurant, the guy pays for the meal.
Don’t be surprised if it takes 2 or 3 dates before you feel like there is a flow between you.
