Romance, dating and marriage with Swedish men – a few tips
There are a lot of stereotypes going around concerning Swedish men and yes, they are all true, to some extent but changing quickly in this global world.
Swedish men basically can be:
- A little bit harder to get a first contact
- A little more shy than other men from south parts of the world
- Not very good at flirting and doing small talk
- Honest and faithful when you get to know them
- The potentially best husbands in the world
Part of this comes down to positive things like the fact that Swedish men consider women their equals, the equality part between genders is very important in Sweden. Of course it’s a little more difficult to be both equal and also play the man, woman game successfully at the same time but Swedish men try to learn and are getting better and better.
The Swedish man also came out as the best potential husband you can find according to a study in the Journal of Population Economics.
An other important factor is that the behavior of men in Sweden could be divided into several different groups based on their origin.
The first group is the native, mostly blond or light brown hair guy, and many times rather tall guys who really fit’s the stereotype description of the Swedish man best. These are the men who have given Sweden a good reputation of having men who focus on equality and are willing to let their woman blooming out in her full potential in a life of equal opportunities.
The second group is the second generation men who have lived in Sweden their whole life but have a slightly different cultural background from their family homes. These men can be a little less equal in their thinking and fits the stereotype role only to about 75%.
The third group are immigrated men living in Sweden but from cultures where women are more oppressed and who do not yet share the equal thinking made famous by the first group of Swedish men.
So taking this whole picture into account makes it a lot more complex trying to find a formula for how men in Sweden nowadays behave together with women. Keep an open mind and at the same time consider the stereotype behaviors for best success in communicating with the Swedish men you meet in Sweden.
