UPDATE, June 26th, 2010: Thank you readers for all your comments and heartfelt discussions. The thread is closed now. Please move over here: http://lostinstockholm.com/2010/06/26/the-new-questions-on-swedish-dating/ to continue posting!
I’ve been on a long hiatus from the blog and I apologize to everyone who does follow me on a regular basis. I have been traveling around Scandinavia and the US and finally am recomposing my thoughts for some new, interesting posts.
I noticed there are some Swedish men who follow this blog and as women (Swedish or otherwise), we are curious as to how your side of the species flirts. Some are general questions…some very specific.
Do Swedish men give compliments randomly to women? If not, are they trying to hit on the girls?
Do you think women should hit on men or vice versa?
Do you celebrate Valentine’s day? Why or why not?
Do people flirt in public? On the train, at the store, etc…
What are signs of flirtatious behavior?
Why do men need to be on the verge of blacking out to hit on women?
Does the ‘player’ culture exist? Like the wingman and pilots?
What do you expect to happen on a first date? (not a first encounter, if that was the case)
Are Swedish women really that boring? Or are the Swedish men really that boring?
