The road to a Swedish heart would seem to go via the stomach, according to an online survey from dating website, Mötesplatsen.se

The next time you’re looking for romance you’d do well to make sure your fridge is stocked before setting out, because more than one-in-five singles said that, "What do you want for breakfast in the morning?" was the best chat-up line they’d heard.

The Swedes, as practical as ever, want to ensure they won’t go hungry in the morning after a romantic night out on the town, according to the survey.

The second most-favoured chat-up line listed was "Can I get directions to your heart?"

However, old dependables such as "I wonder what our children will look like," which picked up just 2% of the vote, are no longer guaranteed to do the business.

The full results of the survey, in which 3940 people voted, are below:

1. "What do you want for breakfast in the morning?" (22%)

2. "Can I get directions to your heart?" (21%)

3. "I can swim but in your eyes I drown." (17%)

4. "I have lost my phone number, can I get yours?" (13%)

5. "You look just like my future girl-/boyfriend ..." (8%)

5. "What is the best thing about being so beautiful?" (8%)

7. "You are so sweet that I get cavities in the teeth." (5%)

8. "Everything ok? The fall from the sky is a long fall." (4%)

9. "I wonder what our children will look like." (2%)

The ‘fairytale’ boarding school nestled in a Swedish village

The words ‘boarding’ and ‘school’ often summon images of strict teachers, drab dormitories and downcast children. That image couldn’t be further from reality at Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket (SSHL), where boarders describe the ‘fairytale’ school as a home away from home.
