Swedes don't "date" the way you guys do, so you're kinda spot on with you analysis.
However, seeing as you're on reddit, you've probably heard of the Internet.
But if your dream is to eventually find one guy to settle down with and grow old together, Swedish culture doesn't seem very compatible with that idea. Most people I know do long relationships, and if divorcing then very slowly with plenty of time for thinking and reconsideration.To me, it's a good thing that people aren't legally constrained from breaking up.And people appear to be a little hesitant to try to communicate and find out.Yeah this is kind of a effect of how unorthodox swedish youths are, because of how norm-breaking etc.Most countries do it to some degree, but Swedes really mean it. Well, perhaps relationships, but only if they're at all in or near one, either coming or going.
We have a massive issue with our own culture and national identity at times. Oh, I didn't mean it in a condescending way, apologies if it came off that way. Angsty teenagers and second-chance-at-lifers excluded, I've never heard a Swede gripe about not being in a relationship unless they're actually interested in someone already.
I wouldn't say that Swedes don't talk about their feelings, we just don't expect the conversation to have a certain outcome because of our actions. I do agree that 'dating' or whatever is much less formal in Scandinavia in the early stages, however, having lived practically all my life in Scandinavian countries and having recently moved to Canada.
Have fun with it and perhaps the Swedish way makes you uncomfortable, but then you know it's not for you. As a long term expat I can say that calling something Swedish in a condescending way is the pinnacle of swedishness.
Relationships seem a lot more fluid, they don't have the commitment to eachother and willingness to put effort into the relationship that I am used to seeing.
This has it's good points, certainly easier to get out of a bad relationship. I gave up on my first relationship after seven years, the second one still works (somewhat) after 25.
If you're also moderately attractive; create an account on various dating sites, clearly stating you're British.
