Ten tips to snagging a Swede for Valentine's

The Local offers ten tips to landing a date with a Swede, the perfect recipe for any hopefuls still dateless on Valentine's Day. Or any day. From dressing to drinking, language to loving - it's all here. Good luck.


So it's Valentine's Day on Friday, and what better way to spent it than with a beautiful and intelligent Swede?
But how do you get one with whom you can spend the evening (or even the night)?
The Local, with a little help from our loving Twitter followers, has the answers. And there's a lot more to the minefield than just coffee and witchcraft, as one Tweeter said.
And there's certainly a lot more romantic tips than "rubbing pickled herring liberally over your entire body", as another suggested.
If you're in Sweden and looking for love, or if you know a Swede living abroad who you've got your eye on, then these ten tips are for you. 
And if you've already snagged a Swede, there's probably something in there for you too. Or why not share your own tips below so others can learn from you?
Happy Valentine's Day!
