So what do Swedish men when they find someone that sparks their interest if they don’t ask them out?
Well, same as us Swedish women do: get very very drunk and go to their place or our place for the night.
I’m not arguing for overly traditional gender roles, where men stick to a strict book of chivalry and delicate women are passive participants who simply receive affections and follow the lead of their male counterparts. The hardest, strongest thing is to be authentic and vulnerable. Simple, sweet “just because” gestures with no ulterior motive other than to make their partner smile (like bringing flowers home on a Friday) are dying out. A relationship is a selfless investment, in a volatile market, and with dubious returns.
Think about it – what do you truly, authentically want, need, and deserve out of a relationship? Be strong and courageous enough to admit it and prioritize it. You’re told constantly that you can do anything, you are the best.
I hear time and again from American men that American women need to lower their standards. But some of us take the risk anyway, because even the slight possibility for success is worth everything, even life itself. When the “what are you looking for” conversation comes up – give your REAL answer.
You’re taught from a young age to value yourselves and your independence above pretty much anything else.
If you find yourself dumped, you have no excuse for crying into your hands….those hands should be busy! If You Can't Beat em, Join em Sometimes your best efforts fall flat. Take Advantage of the Abundance of Food There is so much food in this country, one of the greatest health risks to Americans is obesity.
Bad news for America, but great news for single people. There are countless restaurants where for less than a day's wage you can command enough food to feed an entire village.
So Americans, I say to you – neither of you are Barbie or Ken models of what a perfect partner is.Embrace it, recognize it, both in yourself and in your partner.Be honest, both with yourself and with the people you’re dating.Americans have so many dating, career and lifestyle options that getting any man to focus on one person for enough time to develop the feelings that manifest themselves in those words is a major, major achievement (Have you played This is what your mom tells you the first time a girl breaks your heart, but in America, there is literally an ocean of single women and men to move on to.In every city across this country, bars are literally overflowing with other lonely people looking to share an awkward cup of coffee with you the next morning. In America, because of shows like , the idiotic belief that men and women can be friends has been propagated right into the mainstream.
