This is a no-nonsense site aimed at “serious singles”.
Boasting “sophisticated and highly-educated singles”, it attracts a more mature audience than Badoo and Tinder. New members must first complete a personality test before filling in a personal profile where they can also upload photos.
As you might expect it doesn’t come cheap, with basic membership setting you back 890 SEK per month. This free site is designed for young people with a passion for culture – whether it’s art, music, film, literature, theatre or fashion – who want to meet people with similar interests.
In addition to bringing singles together, the site also styles itself as a guide to the best cultural events in Stockholm, Gothenburg and also Malmö, where the site was founded. Targeted at foreign professionals working in Sweden, The Local’s very own dating site is an expat dating community of around one million members.
Unlike some of the bigger international dating sites you'll need Swedish to use this one.
Create your free profile now and start meeting colorful singles with whom you can be yourself.
Online dating – or “nätdejting” in Swedish – is booming in a country with a reputation for both shyness and tech-savvy innovations.
Having grown up in Sweden I spent many summer sailing in Denmark, so I have spent plenty of time mingling with the Danes. In Denmark there is a very strong sense of equality between men and women. So don’t expect the guy to walk up to you on a party and buy you a drink. There’s a sense of fairness – you do your bit around the house, they do theirs.
In my teens the bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden arrived, so suddenly our neighbors were even closer and today a lot of people commute between Malmö and Copenhagen on a daily basis. For some reason women at some point decided that if a man holds the door for her, it may be seen as if she can’t do it herself. See dating as a half way approach – you have to meet half way, with everything. Of course, this is an individual thing (as are most things discussed in this article – you can’t tell what it’s like dating an entire nation, you have to generalize) but as a general rule, Danish dads spend time with their kids.
The registration process is quick and free after which you can take a few tests to help match you with compatible singles in your area.
