Curiosa prepares to wrap up her almost seven-year sojourn in Sweden, she shares her revised reflections on Swedish mating and dating with The Local.This guide may not help you find your Swedish Valentine, but it might just shed some light on the tantalizing mystery known as the strong, silent Nordic type.Sure, we all have our workplace crushes, and there’s plenty of flirting that can go on via Slack.But that doesn’t mean you want to make it super easy for anyone to act on it in a company-sanctioned forum. You tell the Feeld bot who your crush is, and if they feel the same way, it'll tell you. It works by relying on a mutual expression of interest.The scam typically works like this: A con artist, usually based in an Internet cafe overseas, will lift a photo from Facebook or another social networking site.They will painstakingly craft a fake profile and begin targeting people that are looking for love.
He or she will begin the courtship process by sending letters and love poems for a period of weeks and finally offer to fly to meet their victim.

In recent months, The Local has reported that Swedes are much less inclined than their European counterparts to spend vast sums of cash in their efforts to find a mate. That's because they spend it all on alcohol trying to get themselves drunk enough to talk to a member of the opposite sex.
