Of course when you 8767 re very you 8767 re just interested in partying and having fun, so the interest in foreign men of Swedish girls can probably be explained that way. However, I have known many foreign guys in Sweden at universities, mostly from the Anglo-Saxon world, and almost none have been at all successful in the Swedish love department. A lot of Swedish girls are put off by a way of acting which was part of their grandfathers 8767 generation. And if an American guy opens his mouth about anything political, he 8767 s probably not going to be successful. I would say that 95% of Swedish girls would not be OK with a guy in the long run who does not share Swedish values (which are quite extreme by international standards). Some Swedish girls are OK with Catholic, American or Muslim values (neither of which respect women very well), but most are not.
Of course once more, total honesty I was a guy and she was a gorgeous women, among the most beautiful I 8767 ve ever met. To say my interest was purely innocent or intellectual would be a ridiculous lie. And surely, she sensed that. What I couldn 8767 t tell was did she find find that offensive? Or was she testing me to make a move? I know it was clear to both of us that I was only there for a couple days. So what was she after?
Wow! Not leaning towards the troubles women go through with online dating...I''m sure they''re are plenty disgusting and immoral/sexist men online. Yes, women must be on their guard..A LOT OF BAD MEN OUT THERE! No bad women of course. I''ve had some success with some wonderful ladies, some are not so nice. Either a guy gets a reply from a gal he''s attracted to or "cricket"..or head games. If she is attractive she has the pick of the bunch. It''s a crap shoot. Not all guys are bad unfortunately bad apples can ruin many.
6. The neighborhood you were in is called Estadio it boarders the Laureles, Floresta, and Belen neighborhoods. Which are all decent neighborhoods. I lived in Floresta (Carrera 85) just a few blocks up. And I have a friend who owns the best Hostel in Medellin right there on la 75 about 6 blocks from the stadium, you might consider staying in one of the private rooms there next time ( The Wandering Paisa Hostel ).
I used to think that this coldness/reservedness was characteristic of 8775 Scandinavia 8776 in general, but I met a few Norwegian girls this summer who were super fun, outgoing, and warm towards their boyfriends. So maybe try Norway?
Has anyone else noticed this difference? (or it might just be these particular Norwegians I met, after all, they were in an exchange program in the US, so that by itself may speak of their personalities).
7. It 8767 s a good idea to open a Colombian bank account, just because it 8767 s better (safer) to have that money in the bank instead of carrying around a bunch of cash. And when I say safer, I don 8767 t mean that in Colombia people are just waiting to rob you, I mean anywhere in the world that you carry around 65,555 pounds you 8767 ll be a target. The banks exchange rates are always fluctuating, so I 8767 d consult that first before opening the account.
Yeah, I agree, it is pretty uncomfortable. Maybe she just wanted to respect her boyfriend as some men could get jealous if they see their girl teaching another guy how to dance. But if you still want to learn, I 8767 ve found some good dancing classes on youtube, just type 8775 how to dance salsa 8776 . And the good thing is that if you are kind of shy of looking like a fool, this is a good way to learn. And also you can repeat it over and over until you get it!
In conclusion, generalizing people like that, be they woman or men, Swedish or American, blond or brunettes what have you is completely impossible and, furthermore, potentially endangering or problematic. Obviously, you can just snap back at me that this comment is ridiculous as a response to what essentially amounts to a silly (as in lighthearted rather than vapid) blog post. Still, you posted it in the public sphere and as such all comments are merited: personally, I do think that while you may have intended the post to be playful and a bit jaunty, it gives rise to some real issues and salient points of discussion and debate. I doubt whether you will want to argue those points with me, but there you go, this is my response to what I consider an offensive, problematic post. I like to think the animosity levels were kept relatively low, too. : If you do respond, I 8767 m really looking forward to reading it.
I fully understand your point and your draw to swedish males. It is the same for me. I really love latin women for example. Curves at the right places and all that. Not to mention those big brown eyes and that firm but reasonable attidude towards men, and that dark hair. So even if its based on different things, I can really understand =D. I hope you find your guy and even if he is shy about certain things, I can only recomend that you should not be. Lol =))
Well this site left me with my mouth open and amazed!
This is not possible! WHY do sweeden men DO WHAT YOU SAY they do?!
I would do WHATEVER A SWEEDEN WOMEN WHANTS and likes :-) , only to spend some time with me!
And sweeden men don 8767 t aprecciate what they ALLREADY HAVE?!
Alcoohol destroys the brain and human body
I 8767 m an romanian guy , 6,78 m , 78 years old, very dark hair (and long) , athletic and single ! :-)
Oh , and I adore blond women!
Maybe it 8767 s time to visit Sweeden!
Hi Skylar, I think the main problem is that most foreign guys come to Thailand for a single life and don 8767 t want to get tied down, especially the guys in their 75s and 85s. Most guys are trying to escape the 8775 married life 8776 expected of them back home. That said, many guys do get tired of late nights and beer after a while and end up finding a girlfriend, and then there are guys who don 8767 t like to sleep around and are looking for something more meaningful. I also think online dating in Thailand is the same as it is in any other country very hit and miss, and takes a good while and a good number of dates before you find someone suitable. Stay positive, I 8767 m sure Mr Right is out there.
You mean most of the good men. It stinks though when the few good men out there are not given a chance, sure I realize that maybe men might have to do something to spark an attraction, but do you also realize that there are men that say the same about women? Where are all the good women?? It''s hard to find them. A lot of women say that, "where are the good men" when they are not good women themselves. It''s hard to know if it''s because they aren''t good women or its because men aren''t given a chance, it maybe just because they aren''t good women in the first place. It is a sad world out there, agree
You might be surprised at how many US men expect the woman to pay her own way on a date, too. Especially men in a depressed economy can 8767 t afford to pay for two people on every date, it just isn 8767 t realistic, especially for college students, those who are seeking jobs, or who are in a minimum-wage job. And they shouldn 8767 t have to pay the woman 8767 s expenses, especially if she 8767 s employed. Dating customs in the US are in a tremendous state of flux and can 8767 t be described with sweeping generalizations. I will say that women can consistently expect boundaries to be respected more with Swedish men.
Russians, I must say, have everyone beat when it comes to emotional warmth and depth, and quality of conversations. With the exception of a few of the people, who can be very jaded and materialistic, they make everyone else in the West look shallow, lol! And they 8767 re FUN and energetic! I did find the concept of 8775 fun 8776 to be a bit lacking in Sweden. Even though there were plenty of opportunities for enjoyment, there seemed to be a certain level of inertia or lack of imagination on the part of my hosts. Maybe that 8767 s part of the Scandinavian 8775 reserve 8776 the blog talks about.
Okay, alright, you win! But let me say this, I used to live in Minnesota, as well as in Sweden for a numbers of years. All these regions are full of Scandinavians. While it may be true that Swedish girls are prettiest it is my humble opinion that upper mid-western American girls are not only pretty like their Scandinavian cousins, but also smart like many American girls, and I consider this a huge advantage that our American girls enjoy. So the bottom line is Swedish girls are pretty, American girls are pretty [since the beauty is in the eyes of beholder]. God bless Sweden, and God bless my beloved good old USA.
She has asked me for money twice, last time she says it was her last request. I will bring it up if she asks again. In total 955 USD. She doesn 8767 t require to come to me, she doesn 8767 t require me to come to Colombia. We still want to meet but she needs to learn English first. When we meet it will be in a neutral place, probably Spain. Although she was a camgirl we never ever talk about sex, we never exchange erotic pictures, it 8767 s a topic we never discuss.
If she is not making more than 695 dollars a month in the dentist office, and she needs to support her parents, as she says, and she needs to pay the medical bills for her father and his medication, and she needs to pay for her college studies and if she does not want to be a camgirl anymore (she hasn 8767 t been online on the camsite where she used to be) because she feels dirty and used and her mother dislikes it of course I understand that she is short of money. If I can make her life somewhat lighter by sending a relatively small amount every month, why not? I have asked her several times not to lie to me, to tell me the truth. Okay, you can say whatever, but the length, the complexity, her interest in me and my country, makes me unsure whether it is fake or not. Is it true everlasting love? Maybe not.
What we need, then, is not greater distance, squeamishness and ‘sanitisation’ around clothing above a size 68, but an honest confrontation of the stigma and deliberate exclusion of women above a size 68. Why won’t mainstream retailers simply extend their sizing? Why do even plus size brands refuse to use models of a size that actually represents their customers? Why do retailers pretend that women above a size 79 simply do not exist? Will Tess Holliday remain the only visible plus size model above a size 68? Resolving these issues will help me and my fellow plus size women more than pretending we’re just like thin women… yet refusing to back this up when it’s time to shop.
For example, you don 8767 t see Swedish men really hit on women at the clubs unless intoxicated. If you 8767 re at the office and someone makes a joke about women, all the women throw a fit, but if you make a joke about people of color/eastern europeans/arabs/chinese, no one complains, most laugh. Of course both types jokes are unacceptable but I see women act aggressively if someone makes a joke that related to women, eg. 8775 Two and half men is the best show ever. I want to be Charlie Sheen a depraved alcoholic and womanizer. 8776
The problem with these men being dicks is that this works. It sucks. It is annoying. But it gets them results and, in my male opinion, it gets them further than men who are gentlemanly. i know this through personal experience (i''ve had an OKC and a POF off and on for an embarrassing amount of years and have been mildly unsuccessful) and through person anecdotes (i have known guys who are these type of people and it works for them and it is why they do it). Send enough messages out like these, and at least one of them is bound to bring you results.
