I am an Californian who will be studying in Sweden next semester and can't wait that long so am looking to start talking to some Swedish girls. Can anybody recommend some good dating sites that young Swedish girls use or shed some wisdom on what the dating scene in Sweden is like?

I think that the best way for you to meet girls in Sweden is at nightclubs. Girls here are usually pretty reserved, so it is not easy to engage in a conversation with them if they are not out partying and having some drinks. At nightclubs you can easily get one-night-stands, but getting a relationship is another story: it will depend on how good you are in bed and on your seduction skills. Relationships here usually start with sex, and not the other way around. However, I must warn you: being in a relationship with a Swedish person is like having a friend with whom you have sex sometimes. If you are seeking a magical, romantic relationship, you will be disappointed.

From my experience and what I learnt from friends, you are most likely to meet girls from US or UK who may or may not be Swedish. You might start now because Swedish girls generally seem to love the idea of having long distance relationships. I second the idea of going to night clubs if you are comfortable with that. But while you are there you might as well try italien, spanish, french, german or chinese. And if at all you get into conversation with someone don't count on it even if it seems quite positive. And don't feel bad if you don't find someone through your whole semester. You could be lucky and get somewhere on day one.

I recommend happypancake.com or if you prefer english speed date there is 'speeddate' and 'zoosk' but the features are not as good as HPC. If you are in it for sex (now let us say there are other things to it) and if you happen to be into fetishes then there is 'Darkside.se' I recommend this because I find the girls here but sensible and sensitive.

Good luck.

I found e-kontakt.se to be the best site so far...yet can't really find any others along the lines of what I'm looking for... it sucks that I have to translate everything into English through google.

spray.se is another one, and parship.se there are normally adverts on other websites like Aftonbladet, and sometimes here too. Look up there ^^^ there is a dating tab, you could always start looking there.

One can only hope that by "young Swedish girls" he really means "young Swedish women."

Seems to me that the best way to go about this is joining groups that already do stuff you like. For example if you like snowboarding...join a group or association that already does those kinds of things. The easiest I guess is to join some language classes... be creative...what organization do you like and also is likely to have hot babes join! In the nightclubs it will be tough... the typical "who is the coolest guy" competition while screaming over the music.

Hope that helps, good luck..

In that case I am doomed. I like electronics and there is not even a single girl in my 50-strong electronics class! sad.gif

Just join any site you go to by putting the URL into http://translate.google.co.uk and the site will be in English for you as it goes through the site. So far it has been pretty accurate in its translations for my uses. Even if it gets something wrong you can generally spot it and guess what was intended.
